Both problems are definitely on my end. Thanks for the report, will be fixed in the next revision, whenever it's coming.
Sorry to bother you again but moonshine´s "ME2 Controller Support" was updated to 1.1 and now it supports the controller force feedback (controller vibration).
I think this is the final version of the controller mod for a while since moonshine needs a new laptop.

Thanks for all the work!
The previous version (in Addon pack) should be working fine. It differs a little from Coalesced.ini in the main package, but nothing critical.
It'll do, but a lot of text changes will not available.
v184.108.40.206a is up! Text changes are numerous, also fixed stupid bug with faulty gamepad UI navigation. Gotta be careful.
Addon v4 also available. This brings up compatibility with wonderful Command Wheel restoration mod for gamepad (http://me3explorer.freeforums.org/post14672.html). That mod is working pretty nice, although there are some issues (pause menu missing save and quick to desktop functions; also switching between confing presets can become messy with this). Regardless, heavily recommended!
v220.127.116.11b with more fixes available now.
This looks very interesting! :)
Does it also make tweaks to the ini that enhances graphics?
Yes, although it depends on the kind of tweaks you're talking about. There are changes to Depth of Field values (see earlier post) and shadows to make them look smoother (shadow resolution is untouched to keep the same performance level).
I haven't stumbled upon guides that provide meaningful results, so any links welcome.
