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 :)

This mod is free and always will be. Over the years I have had a few offers for donations and I have recently decided that I will attempt to accept donations only if they are to support me and if you find my services (continued efforts and support) helpful. The donations are not for the mod or any content within. If you, like some, simply want to show appreciation for my efforts then by all means please donate. It will help me continue modding, cover software, and cover PC hardware costs which I use to mod. If you are inclined to do so, I thank you sincerely :)

Hey,

The mod is so beautifull, when I can play with it (the immersion so much higher ingame). However I keep running in some issues... crashes when starting a dialogue in citadel -> general fault protection.

I followed all your instructions -> install MEUITM, apply LAA patch & edit BIOENGINE.INI. I don't know why it won't work anymore because around one and a half years ago it worked without any problems, with the same installation on the same laptop. You'd think it could be related to my onboard videocard? I have ati 7970m, got drivers upgraded month ago. Thanks for your time,

Roarexe

Apply LAA to MassEffect.exe and make sure there are no typos in the bioengine.ini and you should be all set. Detailed instructions are in the readme.

make sure not to use the gamefront links they are hosting a version from 2013 mismatching parts 1-7 from different versions will cause this, make sure it says "MEUITM" and not "ME1UTM" in the file names.

Hey there CDAMJC,

Remember that "Patchy blackness" I was talking about last time? Yeah turns out I couldn't resolve it... Because as soon as I restarted the game again the next day the same patchy blackness went back on again :/ And it's not just that, every female characters or NPC's hair textures are not showing up. It's just a black hair shape with no colour or textures. I think it's missing some hair textures?? As with my character, I gave her the 'bun' hair and its just full patchy blackness down to the neck. I don't know anymore :/ I've tried everything and it's killing me here!! I even turned AO off in NVIDIA Control Panel but to no avail... -sigh-

Thanks for the pic, it looks like the mod has been overwritten with vanilla textures, this can happen if you install the dlc after the mod, or if steam/origin tries to restore the game. So make sure to disable "keep this game up to date" or similar option of you are using Origin/Steam. Also make sure to install the mod after installing all DLC and this issue should go away. Also make sure in-game your texture settings are set to ultra, because the Alliance uniform and the face skin in those pics are vanilla/unmodded version of those textures or at least some how set to low lod for sure.

Update: Actually the freckled face does look modded but like it's set to low or medium detail, make sure the games textures are set to ultra, if that doesn't work try the other things I mentioned previously.

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…
