Deus Ex: Invisible War gets all-in-one unofficial patch

See for yourself.

A new unofficial patch has arrived for Deus Ex: Invisible War, bringing widescreen support and a few fixes to the game that I still think would be remembered quite fondly if it weren't named 'Deus Ex'. I found Invisible War technically fiddly and sloppy when I replayed it a few years back, and it sounds like the Visible Upgrade patch by 'snobel' fixes most of my gripes. It supports modern aspect ratios, including for folks who tape a dozen screens together, has an adjustable field of view, and fixes a few bugs. Oh, and it includes an optional high-res texture pack. Good stuff!

Some of the Visible Upgrade's fixes have been possible before, through a combination of player-mode tools and, er, hex editing files, but having it all rolled into one simple update is grand. The Visible Upgrade also fixes problems with multicore CPUs and a few display glitches, speeds up level loading, gives options to tweak the HUD a little, and otherwise generally makes Invisible War nicer.

Including John P's revamped textures is a nice touch too, making this pretty much the only download needed to modernise Invisible War. I tend not to use texture packs myself but hey, perhaps you do.

Swing by the TTLG forums to download the Visible Upgrade, and do pay attention to the installation instructions.

Ta to the reader in that there Visible Upgrade forum thread who says they sent us a tip; I saw it and I see you.
