Now that I have your attention...

Found a new HDTP image.

Actually you picked one of the worst screens - while it's a good character model, it doesn't look anything like JC, at all. No biggie though, just something I'm going to uncheck when installing the final HDTP (when it gets released, at long last), I have no problem keeping the original model.

:eek: There's something wrong with that face of his... But the HDTP team is doing an admirable job nevertheless.

You are a terrible person.

That image could be pornographic only to people with a fetish for ugliness.

That's a new image? I thought the sawn off shotgun was their most recent addition, and even that was some time in April.

Yeah, I'm pretty sure this image is almost exactly one year old and JC wasn't animated back than as you can tell by the way he holds his hands.

The JC model is quite ok (the one I've seen, which is the most recent model and looks a lot like this, maybe it's the same), but the body armor is awful. Why did they change that?
Believe me, his head is okay. I didn't like it at first, but it actually fits the setting and his personality quite well. You just have to get used to it.

:rolleyes: I'll take that as a compliment. Don't get me wrong, HDTP is an admirable project, but I'm not going to kiss their ass and tell them they are tehawesomeness in everything they do just for the sake of it.

Fact is, I look at that character model and everything bad about IW comes boiling to the surface. As I said though, HDTP is going to be great. Anyway, since DX is first person you won't be seeing that much of that character model, but still, I prefer keeping the old character model for when you engage in conversations. Feel free to tell me that makes me a bad person.

To be fair though, it's probably excruciatingly hard to re-make the JCD model - the rough low poly edges and low-res texture is probably somehow part of his charm.

They don't have much to work with, but they're doing a fantastic job.

...with everything except the character models.

Well, I do like their version of Simons, but that's it.

Hang on. Please tell me I'm the only one seeing a dumbed down crosshair and it's all just a terrible figment of my imagination.

Yeah, I don't like Anna Navarre either. Nor Gunther. Maybe I just have to get used to them, but I'm not sure.

I like most of them and I indeed needed my time to get used to some of the new looks.


Fact is, I look at that character model and everything bad about IW comes boiling to the surface. Do you mean they look "streamlined" like Alex and most of IW in general? I don't see that. Alex looked like a boygroup-wannabe whereas the HDTP-JC looks like a badass-rock'n'roller. Something simillar goes for the rest of the HDTP-chars too. It's true that they look different from the original and less like ordinary people but more like actors now. But like serious actors and not like some soap opera starlets (Alex & company).

nope, that's the default not-targeting-anything-right-now crosshair, for people who play with crosshairs turned on.

I think the guys working on the DX:HDTP are doing a very admirrable job. The models are looking much better and I cant wait until I can give it a play.
I'm not going to complain about anything they are doing because it's better than what I can do and It's more than what we have at the moment

HDTP is a great project, but I truly despise the character models and their float-like animations.

It would be better to put all of the effort in environment textures and less into the characters.

Hate to say it, but I have to agree with the comments about the characters. After downloading the first batch of HDTP objects, I was absolutely in love with all of the updated models and textures until....Gunther appeared.

I'm sorry, I'm just not a fan of any of the characters (not even Simons, although he is probably the best they've put out so far). I'm definitely going to be using HDTP once it is released, but I do hope they give you the option to turn off the custom character models.

Sorry to be so negative. :(

Well, yes... options are your friend - once again! I also hope they include that option so there's there is no need for any arguing about this topic.

I love the HDTP project and i am supremely grateful for all the work they are putting in. I'm on my latest runthrough of the game and installed HDTP, and the new textures are just fantastic.

The new JC above looks bloody awesome! keep up the great work guys!

I am also playing Deus Ex again with the new HDTP textures, and it is indeed cool. Gunther Hermann was striking, but I think he was so iconoclastic because we're still used to all the original NPCs...

The HDTP crew should keep up the great work! I'm waiting for the next version...:)
