Preferences are preferences, it's actually pretty simple, go into the "C:\Program Files (x86)\LucasArts\Star Wars Battlefront II\GameData\addon" folder and delete the "ME5" folder, that should get rid of all the UI changes, maps, etc.

Doesn't change the main menu music back, though... Wouldn't mind knowing how to fix that whenever I just want to completely "switch it off" once in awhile...

Don't remember hostiles in Mass Effect running around that much.

Guess I'm so used to the gameplay of the vanilla game that I thought that was what to expect.

I'll close that out with saying that this isn't a Mass Effect game you're basing from, cover isn't exactly a key factor in the game, I was expecting Battlefront II gameplay with Mass Effect weapons and abilities, and it's probably a good idea to reflect that a little in the mod.

By all means, encourage cover use, just don't design it into a corner by making it the *only* defensive option.

Another thing I picked up was weapon accuracy at range (I nitpick because I love), yes you're probably supposed to crouch to get real accuracy from automatics, but they lose accuracy too quickly to the point of being near-useless outside of "knife-fight" range (again, something that wasn't the case in vanilla). This is probably played into by my fire-rate complaint I made earlier.

And one last thing, the amount of weapons and abilities given to each class is a little overwhelming, while I respect your effort in replicating Mass Effect into this mod, I'm going to repeat what I'm likely going to end up saying a dozen times pretty soon.

Remember what game this mod is playing from.

Classes in the vanilla game usually had 2 primaries and 2 secondaries. 3 is a little difficult but not impossible to work with and 4 is just plain overwhelming, especially when you're desperately trying to pull a weapon that is loaded and not overheated.

And ease off the explosives a little bit, I'm sick of tumbling around from some dopey friendly's bad grenade toss.

I should probably stop here before I double the page's length with my rambling.

Fantastic mod! I have a bit of an issue though.

The mod feels too fast. As if everything is running 25-50% faster than it should, weapon fire rates, bot movements. The vanilla game never felt this fast and it makes the mod feel like a pseudo "bullet hell" game (Is this some direct method to force people into cover?).

Don't know if it's just me, everything else is solid!

As a request, find a way to slow things down a little bit, I spend a little more time in the class selection screen than I'd like.

Fighting the Reapers, you know what comes to mind? Halo. Roll with me here.

In Halo the UNSC only won against the Covenant in space whenever they had a 5:1 advantage, and that's still losing the majority of their ships.

I see a similar situation here. The tech gap is pretty similar, too!

Dammit, I miss that hunk of junk...

Whenever I hit the surface of a planet I would throw on "Rock of Ages" or "Polkas Y Huapangos" (Red vs Blue's infamous "Warthog Radio" tune. "WHAT THE HELL IS THAT MUSIC!?") and just look for things to run down.

Wasn't a fan of how it handled, but as a vehicle I loved it! While I can understand not implementing it for the next games, it just smacked of not even *trying*.

I better stop before I go on a tangent about the ending and how not talking about it is equivalent to saying "Sell us whatever the hell you like, guys! We'll buy it without question! DURRRRR..."

Crap, too late...

I am definitely a believer in this phrase... I just never thought I'd see it taken to such a catastrophic extreme...

We laughed, we cried, we blew $#!T up! Then we got on a train bound for Closureville with a slight detour to Epic City only for it to derail and ram full speed into the Great Wall of China 3 miles short of the station.

Reason for not saving him being Ashley struck me as having more depth at the time (family, confrontational concerning beliefs and racism, more interesting if you ask me.)

That always flummoxed me, ME3 struck me as a game of miss after miss after missed opportunities...

If they'd just dropped the Horde-Mode clone and Galaxy at War crap, maybe they could have pulled some really cool things.

Example #1: If you're gonna rip something off, rip off what Halo: Reach did and add some fighter combat, or even better! Get control of Joker flying the Normandy into battle! Preferably more than once!

Example #2: why not have some of the big epic battles like you see in the trailer? (I know, every developer and their dad lies in their trailers...)

Example #3: You remember the argument in the shuttlebay over which tank is better? Why not get missions with both? Or even pick which one to go out in?

Depressing is what it was... Would have livened up the side-quests *considerably*!
