The galaxy is trapped in an endless cycle of extinction. Every 50,000 years an ancient machine race invades and with ruthless efficiency wipes out all advanced organic civilization. They leave behind only the scattered ruins of technology, destroying all evidence of their own existence.

Still stuck in that elevator? Help is on the way with a new patch!

Posted by Darth_Shan on Aug 27th, 2009

Believe it or not, BioWare released the 71MB PC version of the 1.02 patch for Mass Effect last night. Gamers who download the patch will now find that elevators work as expected and that Garrus' face isn't completely weird.

BioWare has fixed up a few long-standing Mass Effect PC issues:

  • The player will no longer become stuck in the Feros elevator
  • Quickslot abilities are now disabled in elevators
  • The pixilated bloom and DoF on Radeon x1650 and x1950 cards has been addressed
  • GPF crashes when playing Quasar have been addressed
  • The player's weapon will not auto fire if the fire button is released as an active loading screen appears
  • Low LOD on Garrus' face has been addressed
  • Reconfiguring the PRIMARY INTERACT key (Default set to E) to any other key will no longer make the ENTER key interact TWICE when used.
  • Player will not become stuck in his action station in elevators (primarily occurred in the Peak 15 elevators)
  • Occasional crash when encountering Rachni on UNC_73 has been addressed
  • Using the enter key to add and remove talent points will function properly
  • GUI: Pressing U when first getting control of Shepard and then pressing ESC to close it will not cause the player to lose all input functionality
  • Romance confrontation conversation will fire after 3rd planet complete
  • The player will no longer become stuck when using the Enter key rather than the primary interact key to initiate conversation with certain followers on the Normandy
  • Audio skipping during conversations has been addressed
  • Addressed cases where Realtec HD audio users were experiencing issues with cut off / crackling audio after patching the game to version 1.01
  • The issue regarding dynamic character shadows appearing grainy has been resolved.
  • Nihilus and all Turians are no longer missing their face markings
  • The issue of Garrus having no lighting on his face until a save is loaded has been addressed
  • The game will now create save files when "My Documents" is set to the root of a drive
  • -The issue where PCs with NVIDIA GeForce 8xxx and above video cards were experiencing random General Protection Fault crashes appears to have been fixed with the GeForce 182.06+ drivers. Please ensure when playing Mass Effect that all PC drivers are up to date.
