New GUI installation interface with options for backup and restoration introduced!
Also, shotguns now have fixed clip capacities so they're no longer infinite, Revenant correctly has 1 spare clip, and various other tweaks introduced!

Just download the latest version, one with yellow icon.

Good hunting!



Old entry:
From Readme file (not complete)

Before we get to technical stuff,
Ever since I started playing, I wanted to do something like this, but never quite found the time
or knowledge how. Now, one of my Life's side-quests (petty dreams) are made true and
I hope you have as much fun kicking Reaper ass, as I did creating this modification.

Good hunting!

Installation instructions are below the changelog.
=============================================================


-- Enabled the code for ammo regeneration, simulating the weapons cooling down.

-- Player classes weapon loadouts changed greatly.

Infiltrators, Soldiers and Engineers carry everything, since these classes appear to be very skilled in firearms usage.
Vanguards and adepts do not carry sniper rifles, since one would assume that all the biotic training doesn't leave
hundreds of hours of free time to practice with sniper rifles
Sentinels do not carry shotguns, since they're more range and support/defense oriented rather than CQB.

You can also select "none" under weapon category, if you don't wish to carry a particular weapon with you.

-- Armor, shields and barriers no longer protect against effects of powers.

Powers will not do any damage they weren't doing before, simply the physics effects will be present
-- 1.4 Squadmates all do exact same damage with same weapons as player.
[...]

And more!

The full change log is in the Readme file.

New version added!

Feature 0 comments

I have constructed a new GUI for installation. You will see that the only thing within the new Complete version is EXE file.

Also I tweaked the settings with weapons a little,

I have changed the Geth Plasma shotgun clip capacity from 40 to 20, because when it's forty, the single shot expanded regenerates over the animation of "pumping" it. So it's effectively unlimited.

Now it's balanced as it should be. Not sure how I missed that.

In short,
Katana - 10 SBO
Geth and Scimitar - 15 SBO
Phalanx now has 55 instead of 65 damage.
Still, it offers an edge, since it's a DLC weapon and people payed additional money for it, so I believe it'd do it good to be above Carnifex and Predator, but again not too much so people who fancy the two mentioned can still use them without feeling they're missing out on anything.

That's about it, enjoy!

Only just now stumbled upon this through the me3explorer-forum, loving it.

One question: I used to run ME2 through the RCW Modmanager that's out there, fiddled with weapon-stats prior to finding your mod here and had those deactivated. Yet, even only running entries that do not touch weapons and powers at all it seems to override your changes.

Is there any way to fix that? Kind of missing that good ol' ME1-Alliance suit instead of the Kerberos-one...

Been a while, but thought I might as well share:

To answer my own question, the way VLM is structured it is fairly easy to just copy over the entries therein into the coalesced via the modmanager it provides, notepad and Notepad++. Matter of checking the different entries in the manager, copying those added (marked by a plus in front) to notepad, use the edit/replace function to delete the '+'-signs. Then, what's left to do is to open up the Coalesced.ini found in BioGame/Config/PC/Cooked of the main-game folder with Notepad++ and place the now plus-less entries in the correct category, which can be gleaned from modmanager (usually in [ ]-brackets], like [SFXGame.SFXPawn_Player]).

Final step to enable all that is to use me2inifixer.exe, and it should work in-game.

Could it be possible to choose which mods I want to have assets?
I like your mod but some of your improvements change the game a lot.

Although I will not be play ME anymore since, well, I'm burned out from 3 games and multiple playthroughs I'd say anyone willing to play again should try this because it adds some interesting features.

Good work!!

The problem with this mod is it makes things too easy, I love the new combat experience that comes from your squad mate ai having good having good accuracy and equal damage to you, but ME2 enemy ai targets the player much more than squad mates, so my two squad mates just gun everyone down before I can do much, cause the enemies are focused on me.

It would be great if you could edit the ai behavior for this ME2, making them hold back more and use their powers as much as the player. If only they had released an sdk.
