Post Deus Ex E3 footage
I don't know how many of you have seen the Deus Ex E3 fooage of the game, here: https://youtu.be/AivG3bRTuJo but looking at this, at 12:03 on the video with the LoadMap window it shows the names of 3 maps not in the final, 30_HongKong_TongJunk (which in the final became Tongs lab in the triad compound) but does anyone know what the map named 30_HongKong_Xijiang was supposed to be? And also 03_Drugwarehouse? Is that the warehouse in NYC in the final game? Also what does it say the map name is below 01_NYC_UNATCOIsland? it says 01_NYC_UNATCO something, but I can't read it.

Hi! To answer your question just under the line "01_NYC_UNATCOIsland" it seems I can read the word Obstacle:

01_NYC_UNATCOObstacle

Don't quote me on this though (indeed it's somewhat hard to read).

Nice find by the way. :mrgreen:

EDIT: if you're nimbe enough you can pause at 12:02. You can view a dialogue box entitled Deus Ex Behind The Curtain. But the text that follows is almost unreadable.

Took me a few tries to pause at that Behind the Curtain texture, but I see it now. I just realised there is a playlist of old Deus Ex footage here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JzvXXsF ... fuG3worn99 the first video on the playlist "Deus Ex: Beta Gameplay " is interesting. First the Security Bot 2 sounds like a camera shutter as it walks, so I am glad they didn't decide to go with that as its not the nicest sound to listen to. I did like how the text appeared as if it were typed at 0:36 on that video too. I much prefer the original hacking interface over the one that was used.

I took a look into the vid. It seems the Beta "Hacking Interface" covers the same functions as in the commercial release. But maybe I see your point:

The rough around the edges hacking screen -with the assorted old-fashioned command prompts- gives the player the feeling he's really tampering with a security system.

Also the Black & Green interface make it very cyberpunkish...Or is it? :mrgreen::


What's the color of Cyberpunk anyway? Reading the Shadowrun novels years ago, I felt cyberpunk was mostly about a grimy world with flashy neon, and watching Blade Runner added the beautiful "rainy atmosphere" to it. But this article seems to think Cyberpunk is green (sounds like the Matrix and old IBM computers are the main culprits ^^):

Green: The Colour of Cyberpunk?

Note: sorry the rambling ;D
