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.

Text improvements? I'm seeing what amounts to engrish everywhere now and it just all feels like someone whose first language definitely isn't english typed a lot of it.

You're right, English isn't my native language. Although I try to doublecheck everything, the mod's bound to have mistakes. Report and I'll get them fixed.

Wow, i love this mod, it must have been quite the work to edit all the necessary files. However, I've got three questions: 1) Currently, i don't own any of the paid DLC for PC, so will there be some yet unknown conflicts due to the mod also intervening with DLC Data? 2) If i want to, what's the easiest way to uninstall this mod? I`m asking because i wanted to try editing my game's coalesced file too, but i'd like to do it with a copy of the original coalesced, however your mod seems to have changed many other files than just the ones in the config folder. 3) I see a lot of the terms in the interface have been changed, like for example the wording of dialogue options. Which file did you edit to change these? I'd love to experiment with that for my game too.
Thanks in advance!

1) DLC files are unchanged. All relevant DLC changes have been merged to main configuration file.
2) Run unins.bat from the game folder. That should restore the backup created during the install. Or you could move the files inside manually.
3) Wording is in the BioGame\BioGame_INT.tlk file. If you discover any typos or strange sounding phrases please report here. For manual editing you'll need ME Tlk Editor (grab the updated version from Me3explorer.freeforums.org).

is there a way to integrate this in with Hybrid Combat? all im looking to do is get the cool down feature.
also wondering about the hotkeys like in ME1 for Journal and Squad. can they be implemented here? right now im using an AHK macro to do it but its kinda janky.
and yet another question, is there a way to tweak a setting to allow to turn a little more during sprint?
BioWare REALLY knows how to F up a game. they did the same(but much worse) with the Dragon Age series.
thank you much :)

Hotkeys for Journal and Squad -- with my current knowledge, no :(
The sprint turning angle was bugging me from the release, but I wasn't able to find the required variable.

sorry i keep thinking of new things BW screwed up. is there a way to have the radar stay up for longer or permanently?
and im guessing there is no Hold button. like hey dumb squad, stay here till i tell you to move or go to another zone. the Go command kinda works now but they dont stay put long.
AND can the Shared_Action button be further Unshared? i keep sprinting by objects and getting stuck to them(covering). and i found myself right away in the game in cover near a door trying to open it cuz dummy squad guy was stuck in there. the open word was highlighted but all i would do was melee. so i had to get up and walk to the door(while taking fire) and open it. sorry again for all this. normally i would just toss the game as i did when ME1 came out but ive made a decision to get this Damn series playable. i know they have great content if modded properly.
god i hate BioWare!

I'll make the radar last longer, thanks.

That magic button functions can be edited, but I can't figure where else to put them (and make them bindable via options).

is there a way to further separate the shared button BS? like ill melee when trying to open a door or sprint by an object and accidentally take cover.
i really hate BioWare
sorry again
another damn thing, when you get look it flashes on screen for like 1 second. WTF.. what the hell did i just get. i fricking thought i hated ME1. this crap is so damn broken. is there at least an inventory system i can look at to see what the hell i just picked up?
