I don't know if this MOD is still alive.. anyway I post a problem with THIS Mod (sadly..your mod was nice and cool !).
Everything was working perfectly, until I started The mission on Omega station ..

I couldn't speak with Zaeed (on the vanilla version, there is an automatic scene when you approach Zaeed, in the hallway of Omega, when he is beating up a batarian..).
I was stuck with this camera on sheperd's face with NO text selection possible, and a nice CTR ALT SUPP, in order to stop the game ...

I re install a clean Mass effect 2 version, without your mod and everything worked perfectly..

I was using also ME2 Controller Support (Power Wheel) by Moonshine+Dybuk and I asked Dybuk for help.. he putted me on the right track.. Your MOD was causing some trouble.

I don't use any Texture MOD at all (too complicate and boring to start...)
Sometimes the "KISS" (keep it simple , stupid) sentence is perfect for me as I like to "overcharge" my games with mods.. I guess I'm getting older (I'm fed up to install re install games all the time..)

Hi. There's a compatible version available for "ME2 Wheel Mod" in Addon Pack (http://moddb.com/mods/better-me2/downloads/addon).

Dybuk used console UI handlers' name for Coalesced.ini, that's the reason the game crashes with any different Coalesced.ini.

Is there any way to switch the UI text back? The lack of capitalization and the occasional spelling errors are driving me insane.

Move Backup\BioGame\CookedPC\BioGame_INT.tlk to BioGame\CookedPC.

What spelling errors have you encountered (if by some miracle you got them memorized)? Did my best to catch 'em all on the latest playthrough, but it's such a time-consuming endeavour.

I think personally for me the lack of capitalization is what turns me off the most. It just looks out of place, and doesn't feel professional. That's just my opinion, I'm super grateful for all of the hard work you've put into the project, just wanted to give some feedback.

Oh. That was intentional, to have an equal text padding on buttons. Do you mind such choice on buttons, on the interaction bar, or both?

Feedback is always welcome.

New version is up, which is likely to be the final release (unless bugs are discovered). Tweaks to difficulty, weapons' capacity, and text changes as always.

Hey UbiSergei,

thank you so much for this mod. Its great, awesome and much more. Especially the addition of powers. That made me actually use all of the characters in given situations. At least to some extend because i cant get it to work properly.

Since im using a nonenglish keyboard the tilde key is not properly working. So i downloaded a coalesced editor and changed the key for the commandconsole to get it work.

I might have done something wrong but i have to use the "exec power.ini" command everytime the game is loading. Is this intentional? Besides, not all powers are unlocked. On some charakters none is unlocked (e.g. Miranda), on some one power (Garrus, Jaob, Kasumi).

Does this have to do something with me editing the coalesced file? Or could it be something else? Should you need any information i would try hard to make it avaiable.

Thx and cheers
popella

Some of those powers require Loyalty missions completed for squadmates. You can easily bypass this by using 'SetRank Garrus SFXPower_LoyaltyRequirement 1' (replace Garrus if needed).

Since you've already decided to modify Coalesced.ini, I suggest you to bind 'exec exec.ini' command to a key. Tutorial for adding bindings: Shakti.ddstuff.com
