Hi, your mod is just awesome but I have some problem with it - There is no change in UI (in everything else it works) I still see old borders and whole UI... only with addon package it works partialy because there are none borders (for example in diary) - so what can I do with this? I´m using ALOT mod, and game is not in English but in my native language if it matters. So thanks for your work and I hope that I can figure this out.

Your mod broke my game.

After installation, I started a new game and suddenly I couldn't open the weapons locker right at the very beggining. Wasn't because of space bar (I reassigned the key and no key worked), but because the "use" action didn't work. Still I could run and cover with the same key (whether it was space bar, e or any other).

I then reinstalled the game and started a new game without the mod. I grabbed the gun and saved the game. I reinstalled the mod and this happened:

Shepard moved like a ghost with no animation.

I could still cover, and that animation would play out right, even though I didn't have the weapon in my hand. But when I exited cover it would ghost again:

And when I tried to open the door, again no "use" action:

This buggers me a lot. I bought the game on Steam to find out EA didn't give me all DLCs. I pirated the game with all DLC (I mean, I did buy the stupid game) and after 2 months of searching for ways to unlock all DLC I find your mod, which disables logging in on Cerberus. I implore you, please help.

My specs are:

Processor - Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-4590 CPU @ 3.30GHz 4Cores
RAM - 16GB
Video Card - NVIDIA GeForce GTX 950 2.0GB
Pixel Shader Version 5.1 Vertex Shader Version 5.1
OS - Microsoft Windows 10 64-bit

Seems like pistol wasn't added to to the player's inventory. Have you tried reloading the mission save? Dirty fix: type 'give item heavypistol' in the console (press ~)

About 'reinstalled the game' part.. I assume mod uninstall script (uninins.bat) had failed to restore the backup? I remember receiving similar reports, but were unable to trace the problem due to the lack of details.

How do I uninstall this crap from my game? The uninsall file didn't do anything

For some reason, the uninstall batch script didn't work. Move contents of 'Backup' folder to the game root folder (usually C:\Program Files\Origin Games\Mass Effect 2).

Alternatively, you can restore the game files in the Origin client.
