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 :)

This is true but please note these textures are much older than what is in the current version available. When I finish my new .mods and .tpfs they will be up to date and contain updates and texture fixes currently unavailable anywhere,

First off, as a huge ME fan, THANK YOU! These textures have vastly improved the gameplay experience and add so much to the fun that is Mass Effect. I really appreciate the work you've put into this project! However, I do keep getting a lot of rendering faults. A particular one occurs after my first plot world (Therum) when I try to connect to the council, and the game dies with a "Rendering thread exception: General Protection Fault!" "History: GMatrix2D::Swap() Address=0x10bb5ed6 (filename not found)" and "History: GMatrix2D::Swap() Address=0x10bbf416 (filename not found)." I've run all the readme suggestions and troubleshooting, but it keeps on happening...

Any hints?

If you can't get past that point something is wrong with the game itself, I would install a fresh copy make sure you can get past that point and then re-install the mod. If it's random it's most likely a ram issue, if you've tried LAA and it's not working try CFF Explorer to set large address aware. Some users have better luck with it. Also make sure you have followed the instructions in the readme on how to setup 32-bit systems for LAA and that you have more than 2 gigs of RAM. Typically I get that error message when:
a) bioengine.ini typo or invalid setting
b) LAA is not applied/working properly
c) The game install is corrupt for any number of reasons.

I just want to give a MAJOR thanks to you CDAMJC. This is the greatest usermade thing ever created in my video game history. I used to play mass effect when I was younger on the 360 and I didn't really care for graphics that much but oh boy did the citadel amaze me in epicness, and you made me feel the same feeling again because your mod makes the game look a-fking-mazing. I think i'm gonna donate you the price of the game soon because this is just, wow, no words...

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…
