    Your favourite Deus Ex sites of yore

    Welcome to the Eidos forum. Please make yourselves at home

    A question for all you veteran gamers out there: what are your favourite Deus Ex sites? I'd be really keen to have a look at old fansites that we could resurrect for the next step in the Deus Ex community.

    I'd also love to hear of any new sites too and any info from the old school is really welcome. Thanks chaps.

    Here's my favorite site for Deus Ex:

    http://www.lokigames.com/products/deusex/

    The problem is the thing is so static. I keep waiting for an update but the page never seems to change!

    Cool, thanks for the link.

    Does anyone have any favourite fan sites? I'd be keen to speak to webmasters of sites, or people that are seriously interested in creating their own online homage to Deus Ex.

    Most of the sites have died off after Ion Storm closed, but while it was still active DeusExGaming was fairly good. Although not a site as such, I like the OTP forums since Deus Ex discussion is pretty active and it's home to two of the 5-ish active mods for the game.

    Regarding Planet Deus Ex, we've contacted IGN and there's a very good chance that it will be re-activated and returned to it's former glory.

    As for actual active sites, I enjoy the classic Planet Deus Ex Forums, which are still active, despite the site archiving.

    Of course, the Off Topic Productions forums are also rather nice (as already mentioned).

    Lastly, the most excellent website of the largest mod for Deus Ex: The Nameless Mod

    And I have absolutely no bias on those last two, there

    Exclamation Off Topic Productions

    I have to back Trestkon in promoting our Off Topic Productions site. Both The Nameless Mod and the High Definition Texture Package are pretty important for the community, even if we do say so ourselves

  17. #17
    I'll "third" both Trestkon and Jonas

    Did anyone follow the DX1 playguide at http://it-he.org?
    Go under the DX1 tab and read his walkthrough. And try to follow it through.

    After playing through DX1 for the hundreth time, I followed this guide and played through it again. And again. And again. And maybe one more time once I get enough freetime.

    I can't believe no one's mentioned www.sheldonpacotti.com yet. It's like the quintessential site for serious DX1 lovers, despite the fact that the site itself doesn't contain much (if any) information on the game itself. If you can't remember what this site is, you can find the address on one of the computers in the Versalife building in Hong Kong. He was one of the writers for the DX1.

    You are right, but there are very few german Deus Ex Fansites and most of them are inacitve. So i thought it is okay when i mention DeusExHQ as german fansite.

    Well, you're right Kasjada, there are very few German DX-sites but did you know www.deusex.info yet? It's a bit strange to advertise our own site but I think it's safe to say that we are the biggest German community with over 500 members and we exist (under different names) since early 2002. It's only forums at the moment but there has been an info portal, too. We took it offline because there were too few news and too few active and posting members for a while now. Since DX3's confirmation we see increasing activity but it's still only the hard core right now. You're happily invited to join us and if you need help or want to set up something cooperative with us, please let me know. I doubt there are many German speaking people willing to join a new DX-community at the moment though. It's too early for the masses to gather around DX3 and too late for DX1 and 2.

    This is great. Thanks everyone. If the sites are new - that's cool as well.

    I know it's early days but I'm looking at community sites we could get on board as affiliates.

    I'm still interested in hearing about sites, but here is a question to the webmasters among us - what sort of things would you like to see in an affiliate scheme from Eidos? Don't be afraid to suggest anything, you never know.

    Exclusive screens, excuslive news, community days, access to assets, access to the dev team for Q&A's, that kind of thing...... we're open to all suggestions.

    Well I worked already for a fansite and I think it is hard to get visitors to your site if you have nothing more to offer than gaming portals like Gamestar, Gamspy/IGN etc.
    So exclusive stuff is always a great thing for fansites, but it really needs to be exclusive (if it is a day later available on every site it is useless)

    Contact to the devs would be helpful as well e.g. for making interviews.

    In addition to that it would be great to have a link / small banner (e.g. 88x31px) on the official pages.


    EDIT: Is there a way to get contact to the (german) PR management?
