To check, simply insert your Deus Ex disc and run the setup, hitting reinstall if you already have it installed:

The version number will be in the lower right corner:

Occasionally there will be a mismatch between the version showed in the installer and the one installed, so it would also be useful to install the game, then check on the title screen for the version number displayed:

There is apparently a version of Deus Ex called 1110 with unique map files, despite having an older version numbers the maps appear to be newer then 1112fm/GOTY.

These were assembled into a patch by DXM here:

http://www.dxm.be/navigator.php5?lang=en&content=202

The link also has more info on the differences. I've contacted him, and he no longer has the disc unfortunately. Aside from him, the only other person who seems to own it I could find is this user on steam mentioning they have it https://steamcommunity.com/app/6910/dis ... 5414733005

They also have a reddit account, /u/BLaCKnBLu3B3RRY, which since their Steam is private, was the only place I could message them. I did 3 months ago and haven't heard back.

The most involved discussion of it I have found is here:

viewtopic.php?f=18&t=10825&start=105

Which I found by following the link by ggrotz here:

viewtopic.php?f=6&t=11172&p=96093&hilit=ps2#p96093 ggrotz also seems to refer to the 1110 files as 1109f.

I have a 1109f disc (It the version that came with the creative soundcard) and the map files are identical to GOTY: https://i.imgur.com/gfGJc5t.png
If anyone has the 1110fm disc it would be a big step in solving this mystery, any other unique version is potentially useful as well! Thanks so much!

That was a long time ago. As I recall, I said that because 1110 (off of a patch I downloaded) didn't change the map files - a version change doesn't dictate all files are changed. 1109f -> 1112fm was the major patch change. As I mentioned to you in DM, finding a Deus Ex change log (if one still exists somewhere) would probably answer your question more concretely than that.

DefaultPlayer001 commented in a long forgotten reddit thread that he found 1110 and it seems to be present only in the Mac version. No idea what the changes are, but I imagine it's indeed just 1109 for Mac, because the installer/executable couldn't have been compatible across versions.
