Ok, here is the lowdown on the fix. Shifter has some text in the DeusEx.int file, e-mail messages and customizable stuff. We are using DeusEx.rev (so that we are not overwriting the .int file) and in DeuxEx.rev there is no Shifter stuff. All the program does is make a copy of the .int file, rename it to .rev and add Revision things like "Welcome to Deus Ex Revision".

So if you want it compatible with revision just make a copy of DeuxEx.int and rename it to DeusEx.rev. That's the quick workaround.


(as per this post).

Just copy DeusEx.int that is in your Deus Ex/System folder and name the new copy DeusEx.rev.

Well, first: Remove DeusEx.rev from your Deus Ex\System folder. Second: Copy Deus Ex.int. Third: Rename the copied file to Deus Ex.rev.

Set Windows Explorer to show extensions.

For Windows XP.
For Windows Vista or above.

Yes. What other meaning is there to remove something from a directory then? (scratches head)
Even if you were to cut it and paste it elsewhere, it would be out of the DeusEx/System directory.

As for making a copy of the DeusEx.int file, since it is already in the correct directory this could prove difficult.
Instead make a temp directory in your DeusEx/System directory, copy your current DeusEx.rev into that directory. (Right click anywhere in the directory->New->Folder (or Map, or whatever it's called). Rename the new folder Temp

Now copy DeusEx.int to your Temp directory.
Go to that Temp Directory and rename the file DeusEx.rev
Move or copy this renamed file back to your DeuxEx/System directory.

May I ask how long it has been that you have worked with Windows, any Windows?

As I said, I don't use Shifter. So perhaps, if you don't mind dropping that, you shouldn't be using it either (at this point in time and space).

So uninstall (through Add/Remove Programs):
- Deus Ex Revision Demo
- Shifter (if it's in there)
- Deus Ex

There may still be remnants in the registry, but I won't tell you how to get rid of those.

Now just install Deus Ex from the CD. Do NOT install it to the default directory, but point it somewhere new, somewhere fresh, preferably on a whole different drive or partition on the drive. The installer will make the new directory for you.

Start Deus Ex. Exit it from the intro screen.

Then just only install Deus Ex Revision Demo 1.2 on top of Deus Ex.

Start up Revision with the Revision icon on your desktop. Do Not use the Deus Ex icon.

Set up the game to your likings, start a new game, play a chapter or 8.

And only then, if you truly feel you need to, you can go install Shifter and replay everything.
If, for some reason, Shifter will wreck your Deus Ex/Revision again, you found the culprit. Though then I think you'll have to go to Shifter's makers and complain to them about it.
