Deus Ex Archive

Postby Philip Riley Mead » Sun Aug 25, 13 12:54 am

Hi dxalpha community,

As a "long-time DX veteran" who absolutely loves Deus Ex 1, I'm interested in putting together an extensive compilation of interviews, articles, music etc. (I'm not that interested in mods, though.)
Fortunately, I found dxalpha by accident while searching the web for information. I like the fact that you already maintain an archive; which - in my opinion - is lacking great stuff while being unstructured at the same time.
There are many websites with "some kind of an archive" but most of the time these provided links are dead and/or the archive is incomplete and outdated.

To my knowledge no one has tried to combine all this data yet. If such an archive already exists, please let me know.

This is my plan:
1. Gather all data/Verify sources
2. Compile an extensive and complete archive

If you like to collaborate feel free to add links below. Thanks!

Hi. Welcome to the forums, I guess! :D

This sounds very interesting, and I too don't know if someone has managed to compile that sort of knowledge/data together.. would be great though!

Hello!

That's an interesting idea you got, and I think you're right about no complete archive existing yet.

As you've seen yourself, several websites got pretty good material, and we (DXAlpha / DeusExNetwork) got some related material as well, but never processed into a decent / properly searchable archive.

Could we perhaps chat/talk some time? Maybe you can PM me your contact details.
