Welcome Modders and Mod users,

I'm trying to fix some of the "uglies" in ME1 and give it the polished look the epic story line deserves. So far I have updated/re-textured: Light and Shadow Maps on walls and floors, Kaidan, Tali, Garrus, Wrex, Liara, Saren, Benezia, Udina, Council, Anderson, Joker, Chakwas, Colonists, Scientists, Keepers, Normandy, Mako, many NPC clothings, Geth ship, volus, hanar, elcor, some armors and default character armors including N7 armor (of characters re-textured). This was Acheived by texture editing (up-scaling, re-painting, adding details, adding textures, adding bump maps, and rebuilding normal maps). Finally, but probably my favorite, I made a new Film Grain Texture to replace the muddy Film Grain with a much less obnoxious ME2 "looking" effect. Now you can keep film grain on and still have a crisp picture.


Requests are always welcome :)

Mod Update:

So I have been frantically rebuilding this mod silently for well over a month now. Many new textures (including environments-I'm looking at you Feros), touched up old textures, some modular additions( example: Tali with visible face option), my own custom ReShade settings (screens to come), and even better dynamic shadows.

Since I have been testing all of these texture mods the stutter introduced by MEUITM, due to texture streaming, has increased. The increase is due to the higher number of textures I have been adding both in the Citadel and to later areas in the game and making some old 2k textures 4k.

Well the stutter was really getting to me so last night I got to digging around in my favorite place, that good old bioengine.ini.

What I have found so far is that the best setting so far to edit in the bioengine.ini is:

[TextureStreaming]
PoolSize=0

This setting unlimits the texture streaming and allows the game to use what's there I think it works as an auto method.

My test scene was landing on Ilos and the whole romance seen leading up to it. Before the tweak it was riddled with stutter and texture load, after smooth as silk.

Long story short I have had great success in reducing the stutter with even more textures added to the game.

But I feel this mod is all coming together after 6 years! The new version will be glitch free (meaning no mipmap issues/textures load as intended) and have way more textures without crashing thanks both thanks to MEM, and perform better thanks to the pool size tweak.

In the meantime try the poolsize tweak and let me know if it helps for you, it definitely did on my end.

More to come and please stay tuned for MEUITM 2017 this will be a major mod update.

This can be caused by usinG FPS counter for AO in a non 16:9 resolution. Either disable AO or run in a 16:9 resolution to resolve. If you are not using FpS counter, this could be caused when the minshadowlod is too low, I always keep it at 32. to ovoid awkward shadows. Or if the shadow depthbias is too low, I use 0.012, the game uses 0.03 so try that setting if you have issues with 0.012.

Hello !
I have installed the game, launched one time, then install M.E.U.I.T.M by following this french tutorial Masseffectuniverse.fr with a launching issue and then i ran Origin in Administrator mode.
The splashscreen appears, then back on desktop in 1280x720 and i have this window :
Hpics.li
Then i launched a game update followed again the french tutorial, then reinstall M.E.U.I.T.M.
I have still the same error when launching ...
Can you get me out of this issue ?

J'ai lu vite fait le tutoriel de meu & il est bon. Vu ton message d'erreur je vois 2 possibilités, la plus probable c'est que tu n'ais pas modifié les bonnes lignes dans bioengine.ini. Vérifie que tu as bien pris le bon fichier (celui dans "documents") & que tu t'es pas trompé en changeant les lignes. Le plus simple c'est d'utiliser la fonction recherche de notepad & de faire un copier coller en effaçant bien sur les anciennes lignes (elles se suivent à chaque fois de mémoire) attention de pas laisser un ancien caractère ou d'espaces. Bien sauvegarder. Par contre avant de faire les changements dans bioengine;ini, il faut lancer le jeu une première fois sinon il écrase tes changements.

2ème possibilité c'est que le LAA patch n'est pas été appliqué correctement, vérifie que tu as bien choisi masseffect.exe (et pas config ou launcher), que la case dans le logiciel soit bien cochée et bien sauvegarder ton changement.

A tout hasard, vérifie que masseffect.exe soit bien en mode compatibilité windows XP SP3 et en mode administrateur. D’ailleurs Origin aussi doit être lancé en mode administrateur aussi depuis peu.

Si après ça toujours rien, essai une clean install & de recommencer de 0 :x. Après si t'as toujours ce message je sais pas.

Bonne chance :)

Salut ! Et merci ! :-)

N'ayant pas eu de réponse dans un délai que j'estimais raisonnable :-P, j'ai refait une install propre. J'ai suivi le tuto à la lettre, à l'exception près que j'ai gardé une copie originale de tout ce qui allait être modifié.
Le jeu démarre, je commence à jouer puis lors de la sélection d'un dialogue pour la seconde fois, le jeu plante ... Je recommence et le jeu plante à un autre endroit.
Je remets le fichier bioengine.ini d'origine et là j'ai pu continuer à jouer en qualité bof.
Depuis peu et ayant pas mal avancé j'ai remis le bioengine.ini modifié et je n'ai plus de problèmes pour le moment ...

Hi CDAMJC! Thanks for the mod! But unfortunaly, after installing it and following every steps, the game doesn't start :/ I play on Origin and even if i run MassEffect.exe as admin, it doesn't want to start (while Origin says that i'm playing Mass Effect).

I had the same problem. It seemed to be caused by LAA, not by MEUITM itself, but running Origin in admin mode seems to have fixed it for me.

I have to say I don't have anything bad to say about this mod. It fixes the only downside of the original mass effect, that is that the textures looked quite low resolution, something I have often noticed (and disliked) when playing through the game. The amazing quality, a lot of painful hard work, and clearly a lot of dedication shown in the creation of this in my mind justifies a full 10 out of 10. You fixed the only thing I did not like about ME1, and I thank you for it. My re-play of the whole…
