3D Studio to Deus Ex mesh converter, version 1.0 (65 K)
The 3D Studio to Deus Ex mesh converter ("3ds2de") is a modification of the "3ds2unr" utility, originally written to convert 3D Studio models (meshes) into the Unreal format. In case you weren't aware, Deus Ex uses a slightly different mesh format than Unreal/UT. The reason for this is to support higher "mesh resolution" which allows finer detail to be modeled in the game's meshes. As a result, if you attempt to import a mesh into Deus Ex that is in the current Unreal/UT format, you'll get a random, jumbled mess. Convert it with 3ds2de, however, and you're good to go. The 3ds2de utility allows you to take full advantage of the higher mesh detail that Deus Ex uses.
