Game refuses to start after installation of the new version (I did not have the old version installed). I can still start the ME2 configuration utility and see all of the additional gfx options. But when I attempt to launch the game, nothing. No error message displayed. After I uninstalled, the game started but several DLCs were unauthorized.

I do have ALOT ME2 installed.

Ooops, I forgot to include a default config preset.

To fix this, run config.bat (from the game folder) and press (1).

Hi! I really want to play this on my next playthrough of ME 2, but I really love the "Everything Key" And I don't want to lose it. Can you guys tell me which line I need to modify after installing this so that I can get my space as everything key back?

It's in the coalesced.ini, right?

1) Download Notepad++, open BioGame\Config\PC\Cooked\Coalesced.ini.
2) Press Ctrl+F to find a string 'Shared_Action'.
3) You'll get teleported to the line, spot 'Name="Shared_Action", Command="...' and add 'Exclusive Used | ' before TryClimbOrMantleCover. It'll look like this:

Bindings=(Name="Shared_Action", Command="Exclusive Used | TryClimbOrMantleCover | Exclusive TryAcquireCover | OnRelease StormOff | OnHold 0.2 StormOn | Exclusive TryExitCover 1")

4) Save the file, extract ME2 Coalesced Fixer (http://social.bioware.com/project/2053/) to the folder with Coalesced.ini and run it.

Are we getting an update to this mod? Looks like I'll have to play ME2 again...!

EDIT: Just seen the update now. It came up below the Addon v4 patch in the files list so it confused me.

EDIT2: I click on the 2016 update, but on the download page, it says Dec 2014... What's the latest version?

You're all set. I made a habit of updating the same link to avoid confusion (oh the irony).

Usually the latest one can be found here
moddb.com/mods/better-me2/downloads/latest1

It used to be /downloads/latest but MODDB keeps glitching and assigns 'latest1' which is also nice (because of a pun).
