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 :)

OK, I'll be that guy. When do you think we'll see a release with the new Tali armor in it? Or is it already out?

Im reposting this as a member cause i forgot to sign in during my last post.

I am having tons of trouble with crashes. every time i die and click load last save it comes up with general protection error or whatever that is exactly. ive tried verifying my files on steam and doing a plethera of other things. im running a nivida GTX 675m on a 64/32 bit operating system. ME1 is saved in the 32bit program files do i needf to do something different with the LAA? Also i only have MEUITM and LAA downloaded am i missing something? any help would be greatly appreciated. most forums i find stopped like 2 years ago

You can try cff explorer to apply LAA instead of LAA many people have trouble getting LAA patcher to work probably because the program is a little confusing, also reinstalling the game will reset the flag back to 32-bit etc... CFF Explorer seems to aviod these problems. Also thoroughly go through the readme for other various crash fixes. Lastly make sure you actually have more than 2 gigs of RAM in your system. Verifying files on steam will erase the mod and could cause crashes. My main guess is that LAA is not working for you though.

Thank You!
I've gone through the readme and have 12Gb RAM going to try the CFF Explorer next. Also you deserve a medal or something of the sort. This mod is great and the fact that your still actively involved with it is awesome. Thanks again!

So, whenever I play this mod, I have a problem where it gives me a protection fault when playing for 5 minutes.
I think it may be that I have an AMD chipset but I use my GTX660.

(that was me posted as guest, forgot to log in) I fixed it somehow... I just uninstalled Mass Effect, then re-downloaded and re-installed in Steam. Then installed the BDtS add-on, then installed MEUITM. Quality AO, FXAA, high quality texture filtering, and 16x AF enabled in Nvidia CP. Played for a good while, no crashes anymore so far.

I think what caused the crash before was that I installed MEUITM before installing BDtS. Also, backup the BioGame folder like it suggests at the beginning of install!

update: btw read the readme... Turns out you also have to install a large address aware patch, and edit some stuff in bioengine.ini. Easy stuff tho.

nope still getting the occasional crash... Only remedy seems to be just to quick save often. Mod looks GREAT btw! Especially with Nvidia Quality AO and FXAA enabled.

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…
