Deus Ex Multiplayer Update Released
5:34 PM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story
Aspyr Media and Westlake Interactive have released a new multiplayer patch for Deus Ex. The update brings Mac players up to speed with the latest PC servers, as well as allowing Sound Blaster Live! owners to play multiplayer with EAX for the first time. If you're not playing online though, the patch is unnecessary, so save yourself the trouble of downloading it. Here are a couple clips from the ReadMe with more important info:
This update adds multiplayer functionality to Deus Ex Mac. The Mac version is compatible with the PC version 1.112fm, and will play against those PC servers. This version also includes support for EAX sound effects using the Sound Blaster Live! cards (if you do not have a Sound Blaster Live! card installed, the EAX code is disabled).Check the included docs for more information on the available multiplayer modes. We'll also keep you posted as more mirrors become available.
Deus Ex MP Patch 1.0.3 (35 MB)
In order to retain compatibility with the PC multiplayer, some interface changes normally in Deus Ex Mac have not been included in this version:
- Starting training for the first time no longer informs you about the "right mouse" button alternate on the Mac, command-click.
- There are two options in the Sound Settings that do not do anything- "Dolby Surround Sound" and "Use Hardware 3D Sound".
- There is no "Configure Input Device" button in the Keyboard/Mouse settings. This button normally would have brought up the InputSprocket dialog to configure your mouse or gamepad. To access this functionality, use the old version of Deus Ex (InputSprocket settings are carried over to the multiplayer app automatically). You may also use the "talk" keyboard command during a multiplayer game to get to the console prompt, then backspace over the "Say" and type "configisp".
