Ok folks, in case you havent checked it out:

http://www.deusexzone.info/downloads.php?file_id=451

This demo tweaker is pretty sweet. It gets rid of the mouslag and the actual interface ingame is more wideout so that it isnt in the way. The game plays more like a pc game after using this.

Just load it up and hit optional. Boot up the demo.

I cant belive that mouselag was there on default. ARE you guys testing your own games or what?

if it says cant find a specific file, search for that file on google and put it in your windows/system32 directory.

BTW the game is SO MUCH BETTER without the mouse lag. I can actually AIM now.

I wanna throw in props behind this effort.

As far as I could tell, the main things that were bad about the demo were all fixable if you spent time with the .ini files. So an automatic tweaker is a great idea.

By editing .ini settings you can

-Get PC like mouse movement

-Move the HUD out toward the edge of the screen

-Shrink the font size

-Dramatically improve the graphics (by they way, one thing that helped me a lot was to increase the contrast in the game)

-And so much more! (I'm sure there is, I just can't think of it at the moment)

Anyways, cheers.

By the way, I didn't come up with these settings and don't know who did originally. Got them off the ISA forums.

Peace.

Just click this link and read all the thread. They have found some of our issues and where/how to fix some of them. From what I've also read, you need to edit with something other than notepad and unclick "read only" for about three or four of these .ini files...but read it for yourself and get the accurate changes :) It seems like these guys are trying to really help us out but I also feel like these things should have been done by the QA guys before releasing the demo!!! Ta and Good Hunting!

Actually, notepad worked fine for me, but yes, watch out for "read only" files.

By the way, turning "read only" off of the .ini files under "My Documents" will fix the key-mapping bug.

if your using IE, just right click on the page and select "translate page". don't know how to do it with netscape, but i'm sure it can also.

You changed the one in the Program Files folder of De2:IW?

Go into your 'My Documents' folder, and you'll see a Deus Ex 2 folder there, change the user.ini in there
