Post Deus Ex Archive Announcement,Massive archive for anything DX
Joe Martin, the writer who got me a copy of the DX Annotated design document, also got me in touch with a fellow DX super fan "X E N ", who like me, has a massive archive of files related to DX.

Except much, *much* larger and containing some info not very publicized (though to my surprise actually available for some time!)

We've just had a fantastic talk on steam and are happy to announce the eventual merger and mass availability of the archives.

we're also calling to anyone with *any* DX archives or in fact *any* files to contribute!

It will be a long effort to sort all this stuff for release, so bear with us.

The current plan is to release them via torrent, and size abiding, google drive.

We will be researching hosting options, and are also calling to anyone with such means to host it.

The current archive is going to be at least 60ishGB+

The contents include-
-mods
-fanart
-podcasts
-interviews
-documents

I've created a sub over at reddit /r/dxarchive . Not really ready, but still feel free to post there.

Massive credits to X E N, AKA /u/op4xendance , an incredible labor of love from her, I've just contributed about 8gbs of mods. The rest is all hers!

Please respond with thoughts/comments or especially if your able to contribute!

And remember to share the news! Tell your friends!

Thank you!


Edit : Just wanted to make sure I was 100% clear on the ANY files bit, incomplete mods/artworks/ your old outdated walk-through/ if it's related to even mildly to Deus Ex, and even if you don't think we could possibly want it, we probably want it.

I have a thing or two lying around, but it's really gonna test your claim that you want everything.

I mirrored (it is still offline) some websites ( http://www.deusexnetwork.com/files | Some Google Code Pages | MODDB ) which are related to Deus Ex.

Directory size:
DXN Files: 9.1 GB
Mods and stuff: 11.2 GB


It might be better to ask permission from Deus Ex Network guys to get/have a legit mirror, since I just only downloaded every file one by one to have it as a backup.

I was looking for that for so long uuughhh
Seriously I love that song. Too bad it was never included in the original DX (If I recall correctly, it was found in the DXHR game files)

This song got reincarnated in NYCBAR2_Music. Many of those in-game guitar riffs are by Reeves Gabrels.

EDIT #1:
I wanted to find some video footage in which you can hear that unknown song, but I found an even better thing to watch:
http://av.cah.utexas.edu/index.php/WSpector:Dv_00121
[adobe flash player needed]

EDIT #2:
There is a tool (to get these videos without Adobe Flash), called RTMPDump which can be downloaded from its website.

To get the linked video from the site, fire up a command prompt/terminal and:
Code:
rtmpdump -r "rtmp://streaming.lib.utexas.edu/cah" --swfVfy --swfUrl "http://av.cah.utexas.edu/extensions/player/flvplayer.swf" --playpath "mp4:wspector/dv_00121.mp4" -o dv_00121.mp4
10 minutes of these streams would be around 743.1 MB, so this command would yield a 2.22 GB video file.

In the beta version of "Shooter" Jojo and Squirt were supposed to be TLC informants. Also, there's a Nick Baldwin texture in the Unatco.utx

I contacted them, thanks! I've actually known about that site for a while, but somehow it completely spaced my mind to ask them.

I think his original name was Nikolai Gusarov, but it was changed to Nick Baldwin? That's all I can assume.

Hi guys, Xen here! I'm the one who got this archive ball rolling :) As a housewarming gift, here are some files I managed to get off one of the Deus Ex concept artists last night, including the textures for Beta Navarre:

Star already posted about the subreddit on the starting post, but I have a Steam Group too. It's here: http://steamcommunity.com/groups/deusexarchive

More to come!

Saved everything as requested. It was impressive to see all that Deus Ex 1 beta stuff. Thank you for all your work so far!

That's amazing! It must have taken you such a long time. Any chance you can upload the archive so we can start sorting through it? It's OK if you can't, I'm half-way through saving everything too :)

Regarding the video, amazing find. I'm sure there are more. Currently working on a way to extract them from the site.

To extract a video see my second, edited post above.

Here are some more University of Texas Briscoe Center for American History items:

Descriptive Summary of Warren Spector Papers

Warren Spector papers (videos)

University of Texas Video Game Archive

Ion Storm e-mails (requires restricted log-in credentials)

I am going to upload everything (whoops, I need to ask permission from those DXN guys first) I could find to some free to use upload site. After the merge/sort I have plans to upload it to create a website (I am happy to pay $15 a month for storage) or, preferably FTP or RSYNC or S3.

Best I can do right now is to include a list of files of what I have:
Stuff I have (mostly from MODDB | Google Code | DXN) sorted by file name
Stuff I have (mostly from MODDB | Google Code | DXN) sorted by filesize
