I thought it'd be fun to have a little forum contest. I've taken 5 images and made some changes to them. The first person to spot all the changes in every image gets a special DX wallpaper emailed to them for their own use. Nobody else will get this wallpaper. Anybody, even René can play- I'm the only one who's seen the altered images beforehand so there's no cheating going on.

Every image has been altered at in some way, but no image has more than 6 changes. PM me with your answers. :)

OK! Here's image no. 1:

OMG, excellent! Thanks MrK. :thumb: :cool:


EDIT: Is it a rule that we PM you with the answers?
If we go posting them up here and the answers are not all correct... this could spoil it for others.

When I read the thread-title I thought "But how? The game hasn't been released yet." I am pretty sure half the forum will turn into a "Spot the differences!"-game.

I thought the exact same thing. A "Spot the Differences" game between Deus Ex 1 and Deus Ex 3 would pretty much be the complete features list of Deus Ex 3. :(

It isn't quite as easy as you first think. :o

The last image, does it have less than six differences? Only I'm not sure if I have them all or not. :hmm:

Has anyone won yet, as the 'first person' to submit all the correct answers to a particular image? :)
Only I guess if this is the case, we need to know which images have been solved so we don't get disappointed?

Ohh I was just about to send another PM! Nicely done van_hellsing.

I'd still missed "one of the four thingamajigs in the panneling left" and the writing on the mainframe sign. Good game :D

Well, here's a preview of it. The full wallpaper is 1680x1050. :)

Didn't expect I'd win, took me 40 minutes just to load the images, since I'm over my bandwidth limit :eek:

Loading the wallpaper now, the anticipation is killing me :P

Nice wallpaper Mr. K! The empty part is just about big enough to fit on my laptop screen, so I'm happy :cool:

Hmm, I wonder what that icon on the desktop named deus ex 3 is for...

well it isnt very hard.. I just wrote a short program that substracts one image from the other, making it quite easy to find the differences :rasp:

29th Mar 2009, 23:46
There's an easier way. Open an image browser (e.g:irfanview) and alternate between images.:wave:

But it's gonna be more complex than a simple "Find the differences" game. Just warning you now.

My Thief character in Oblivion used his Security skill amazingly well. I was such a Garrett rip-off it's not even funny. I just went from rooftop to rooftop, breaking in overnight and entering those shanty houses. I picked many a lock. A painful system, but I wanted to play another Thief game badly.

GmanPro
1st Apr 2009, 02:26
Security was useless because you could pick any lock at level 1. My Paladin-esque character could pick a lock just as well as my Garrett-Thief character. Now if that doesn't speak to flaws inherent in the core design, then I don't know what does.


I wanted to play another Thief game badly.

Yeah, I did that too :D . I always want to take stealth in Bethesda's games. I keep forgetting that the only games to ever do stealth properly were the Thief games.

Stealth is typically horrible with Bethesda. Boost your stats up to a 100 and you can do cartwheels in front of the foes you wish to hide from, but if it's around 20, no matter how well hidden you are, someone hears and sees you coming from the other side of the hills.

GmanPro
1st Apr 2009, 02:49
Yep. Its a problem no doubt. Lol, I still remember back in the days of Morrowind, I went into stealth mode and was hiding behind a counter top in some shop, and was stealin all the merchant's goods. Then I tried to sell them back to him :D That was the last time I tried that...

Morrowind's stealth was horrible. You could barely crouch, and it was 100% LINE OF SIGHT.

I have no doubt that the game will exist at this point, but I couldn't help getting a rush of excitement and renewed faith upon seeing that on the desktop.

And of course, I spend all the time getting like ALL the answers then scroll down and see I am far far too late. And want that wallpaper lol.
