Hmmm...
To do:
Most of the content shown on the Windows version also likely applies here.

The sequel to the hit 2000's classic, Deus Ex: Invisible War was considered to be a major disappointment compared to the original. Maybe it's because an invisible war isn't that interesting to watch.

Cut Weapons

A mixture of models and icons for cut weapons can be found in the files including:

Assault SMG:

The AssaultSMG mesh may have gone unused as it requires 119k of memory compared to the MakoAssaultSMG's 27k mesh. The texture seen in pre-release images can be applied by renaming SM_smg2.dds to SM_smg.dds.

Ion Laser Rifle:

Not the railgun but a separate weapon. Textures can be applied by renaming SM_ionlazer_emi.dds to Material #1.dds and SM_ion_lazer_bmp.dds to gen_to-be-shaded.dds.

Turret Launcher & Turret Puck:

Unknown. The puck can be textured by renaming SM_turret_puck.dds to SM_turretpuck.dds and SM_turret_puckside.dds to SM_turretpuck_side.dds. The sm_turret_emipuck texture for the inside of the puck is missing. The puck specifies "Mobile Turret use".

Drone Assembler:

No clue. Perhaps internal use for the drone augmentations or was once required as it has a full model. Debugging tool? Unable to find a texture for it.

"HPProj" & "InvisibleBotArms":

Unknown what these were or were for, both models are just one small polygon.

Sniper Rifle X:

The MakoSniperRifleX mesh may have gone unused as it requires 119k of memory compared to the MakoSniperRifle's 31k mesh. An alternate skin can be applied by renaming SM_sniper2.dds to SM_sniper.dds.

Smoke Grenade:

Likely did what it says on the tin.

Bot Domination Proximity Mine:

A proximity mine that lets the player dominate a bot and take control of them. Not sure how this'd work as the player could be far from the mine when it detonates. This uses the model of the proximity mine but its textures (proxmine-bot1-4) are missing.

Gas Proximity Mine:

A proximity mine, that released gas, how novel. This likely worked as the gas grenade does, but in mine form. This uses the model of the proximity mine but its textures (proxmine-gas1-4) are missing.

MilitaryBot/SecurityBot/HunterSeeker:

These seem to be the weapons for the RB-76 Military Bot, CC-75 Security Bot, and HS-66 Hunter-Seeker Bot. I'm not sure if these are stored in the weapons folder because they were once usable by the player or because they are weapons used by the robots. Possibly combined with the "turret launcher"? Just a wild guess.

Plasma Clip:

A plasma clip, possibly for the railgun before ammo became universal. Can be textured by renaming sm_railgun_clip.dds to mako_energy_clip-1.dds and mako_energy_clip1.dds to mako_energy_clip-2.dds, but these may not have been the intended textures.

Cut Items

Chicken legs are a food type that seemingly goes unused in the final product. The item is still listed in the manual as "meat".

Weapon Mods

Icons exist for inventory and HUD versions of weapon mods. These seem to follow a rule of a red icon for a mod that affects the weapon's barrel, and a blue icon for one that affects the weapon's body. In the final version weapon mods don't take up inventory space and are instead given their own window to mod weapons which has unique graphics for every utility.

No old icon exists for the Increased Damage weapon mod, however one exists for a cut Tracking Computer mod.

Unused Text

Hmmm...
To do:
Unused text from PC version also applies here.

The Japanese version of the game contains a file titled m9_character_graveyard.con which is odd as the game only goes up to M6.

Unused Models

Hmmm...
To do:
Figure out which models are unused and worth showing.

The English and Japanese versions of the game include .zip files containing many static meshes used in the game and many not. The zip even contains a helpful folder called "Unused" which contains some e3 demo models among others.

The "gen_showerstall" model is a placeholder text model saying "see jim". Likely a replaced model and referring to artist Jim Magill.

Unused Textures

Hmmm...
To do:
5000 files to go through and find out which are used and which aren't. Japanese version contains some additional UI textures for English/French/German/Italian/Spanish.

The English and Japanese versions of the game include .zip files containing over 5000 textures. These textures include pre-release versions of the augmentation icons seen in pre-release images at the time.

In the bitmaps folder is a texture titled "_Missing.bmp", which presumably was a placeholder for if a level didn't have a loading screen yet.

DeusEx-InvisibleWar-Xbox- Missing.png

Likely a placeholder for seeing walls that the player shouldn't see in Seattle. "Whitney" likely refers to Whitney Ayres, leader of art direction.

Textures of screens show old names for Alex Denton and Leo Jankowski.

Cut Augmentation Icons

Placeholder graphics for cut augmentations/biomods can be found in the files, including one for the fabled twice-cut-never-materialized skullgun augmentation. The format can be seen in pre-release footage from an interview video from 3:55.

Alternate icons for the weapon mods, including one for the cut tracking mod.
