I was a full time Chemist for 7 years, now I am a Chem lab leader(it's not my passion but it pays the bills). I have modding to make me happy. I have a BS in Biochem and Fine Art(the reason I like doing this type of mod). I have always drawn(comics, video game art, and anime etc...) I love science fiction. I play a bit of guitar(blues and rock mostly). I practiced and helped teach Goju Karate as a 1st degree black belt but work has since gotten in the way, I haven't been back for over a year:/ I like having hobbies. My latest hobby is modding. MEUITM was my first mod. I was inspired by JeanLuc's work on ME2 and the handful of ME1 textures he did. I wanted to give ME1 the graphics it deserves and seeing his work showed me it was more than possible. I still work on MEUITM. I also have done some texture mods for Dragon Age Origins and now I am working on Super Mario Galaxy 1 Dolphin HD texture mod started by Razius. I am happy to be a part of and share my work with the modding community.

Update:

I have finally found time to officially test my files with MEM (excluding the shadows and light maps in which I need to update some formatting).

Wow! All characters and textures rendered perfectly with all Mip Map functionality even at character create menu!!!!!

I've been waiting for this kind of tool/fix for 5 years. I will begin work on a new version of MEUITM which will be 100% proper mip rendering, this is a huge deal for me. Thanks to Aquadran for the tool and Creeperlava for pointing me in it's direction.

For those that don't want to wait get MEM here: Github.com

I has a feature which can convert all my .tpfs at once to MEM files, from there you can install all textures, or pick an choose whatever you want very quickly.

Instructions on how to use MEM: Github.com

Very exciting, happy modding.

More to come...

Sorry for the delay, could you be using sli? That's the only thing I can think of is sli flicker, but I don't flicker on my sli setup so I'm not sure. maybe you have resolved by now. I rarely check my profile for mod issues, sorry again for the delay.

No problem. the game needs to be run once for the lines to be generated. Also make sure you are editing the bioengine.ini in the "MyDocuments" directory.

Please let me know if you need more help.

If the installer crashes on you use the installer free version found here: Mega.co.nz

A fellow modder has come up with a supposed fix, I haven;t been able to test because I have intel hardware but give it a shot, : Nexusmods.com? it is a graphic injector but also fixes the Noveria glitch on AMD CPUs according to the author. I use it personally for ambient occlusion.

Not mod related, just game related, use the left and right arrows on your keyboard to get to the higher resolutions.

Not starting is almost always from a typo or invalid setting in the bioegine.ini. check carefully for anything like that and/or use copy and paste from the readme to add the settings to ensure no typos or invalid entries.

I didn;t mod these, so that's just the unmodded game you are seeing. maybe in the future, still having problems getting more textures into the game without breaking it at the moment. There are some new modding tools I want to try in the near future, if they work I will do the weapons.

The 1.63 GB is for the tpf version, this is much smaller than the installer version. When you combine the parts 1-7 of the installer version you will get the same file size as the one on the Nexus. All content is identical between the 2 websites.

Hello,

Please make sure LAA is applied to MassEffect.exe and not Masseffectlauncher.exe This is the most common mistake that causes crashes.

Yes I have worked with the creator of A Lot and supplied many conversions like MEUITM Garrus and damaged Garrus and with JeanLuc's permissions, some updates to his Miranda textures. Also many NPC textures etc... A Lot is probably at this point more comprehensive than this mod because ME2 handles the textures better, and it has many mod authors work not just mine.

Yes just install everything game, updates, and dlc before installing the mod and the textures will carry through the dlc. If you install the mod then the dlc, the dlc will undo a lot of the mod and break the game causing crashes.

That is the Mass Effect engine glitching out, nothing to do with the mod. It's a clipping issue due to the engine, and possibly later versions of windows because I don't remember it doing it back on windows XP. But from windows 7 on I have seen the clipping. I do not know a fix unfortunately :/ It could be that back then I was gaming at lower resolutions and it was simply less noticable.

It must be AA related the disable any anti aliasing settings you have in your graphics card drivers. the mod should not and really cannot cause this because it only changes textures and shadows, not lighting or depth of field which looks to be what is affected in your screen shot etc...
If all else fails it could be a bioengine.ini setting, delete the bioengine.ini(the my documents version) and run the game once to default the values and see if the problem goes away.

Or it could be the controller mod. The controller mod has a MEUITM variant in the controller mod download make sure you are using that one.

Probably the conflicting mirrors like above, make sure the files are all from 2014 and are titled MEUITM not ME1UITM/ If it has ME1UTM in the file name, it is old and incompatible. Or just use the torrent, or you can download from the Nexus website as I have uploaded there as well.

you need a torrent client, use google. If it's too complicated just do the direct downloads.

Follow the readme. Second disk just means it's looking for part 2 of the installer.

that was Texmod and it was performance patch for Texmod. The new version is a perma mod and is less demanding than Texmod, so a performance version was not needed. Also the mod has been heavily updated since then in amount of textures and quality of textures (I learned a lot in between)
