Here’s a patch to give Deus Ex: Human Revolution—Director’s Cut back its gold filter

When Deus Ex: Human Revolution first released it had a distinctive gold filter that made everything shine like it was covered in Ferrero Rocher wrappers. It was a divisive feature, with some saying the black-and-gold palette was a valid artistic choice and a distinctive look. Others said it made everything look like it was made of bumblebees.

When the director’s cut came out, initially as a WiiU exclusive (a fact I’d forgotten until today), the gold filter had been cut and it remained absent on the PC version. Until now, when a modder known as Silent put in the work to restore it.
