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.

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 :)

Having an issue where certain objects do not appear such as tables/chairs, lockers, the objects are still there but are invisible.

The only chairs modded are the Normandy chairs I haven't touched any other tables and chairs. Sounds to me like objects on the Citadel are disappearing and unless you have less than 2GB VRAM I highly doubt the mod is related. I would Google the issue and see if it is related to vanilla Mass Effect.

Try validating the file cache with your torrent client? If this was true no one would have been able to install it. I have tested and can confirm it is working.

OK, just tried widescreen fixer (found it online) and that just crashes my game. It certainly wasn't the source of the issue.

All of Shepard's textures are greatly overhauled..
I'll add some screenshots to show you :)

All I can say is that it looks really good, when compared to the original game

I have a question for you. I've installed the mod some time ago and like using BUT it seems to have come with side effects. I have an nVidia GTX 550 Ti (old by modern standards but more than enough for ME1 - ME3) and since installing MEUITM I've lost HUD icons and radar. The HUDs show up but contain nothing because they are blacked out or invisible. The radar circle is there at the bottom right as per normal but the spots on it are black and impossible to see in most circumstances. Have you, or anyone else, seen this with nVidia cards and is there a fix? I've tried every possible resolution, tried windowed and full screen, but nothing fixes the issue. I'd HATE to remove the MEUITM mod because it makes the game so much nicer to look at but it may be the only way to fix the glitch.

This is a first for me.

Possibly running out of VRAM? More likely though is an overlay issue. I have tested with steam and origin overlays and no side effects however.

Are you using any other overlays like FRAPS or D3Doverrider? Injectors like GeDoSaTo or SeeetFX? If so try disabling and see if the issues are gone.

Also try disabling AA, I think I read somewhere a while back certain forced settings through the drivers can cause things like this.

Also try to roll back drivers, it could be a driver glitch.

This is very strange though because I didn't mod any of those textures that are giving you trouble. Also I run on Nvidia and all is well on my end. My bet is on an overlay or AA settings/driver issues. If all else fails to fix it it could be VRAM I do recommend 2GB (dedicated or shared on laptops) to use the mod smoothly.

Thanks for reply (wasn't sure how often you put eyes on it at this point). Turns out that the problem I mentioned goes away if I set my system to use 3D. I have a 3D monitor and the ME display with MEUITM installed ONLY looks 100% correct if I go to 3D, which sucks because that means unsetting some other nice tweaks that make the game look better (dynamic shadows for one). With 3D on the radar, hud, and all their icons appear as expected but exit 3D and I lose them all: Radar appears but spots on it are black, HUD icons are invisible across the board but the outlines of each are normally visible (my weapon/loadout HUD, my squadmate HUDS). Truly annoying. I end up activating 3D but then reducing the depth to as low as possible so I can play without wearing the polarized glasses.

I'd appreciate it if you or anyone else here would pass along ideas on WTF the issue is and how to fix it. As nice as ME works with 3D, it's impossible for me to sit far enough away from the screen to make it worthwhile AND still be able to reach my keyboard and mouse. This only started after I applied the MEUITM and I really don't want to give that up because the game really needs the resolution/texture improvement. I've also tried reinstalling the mod just in case something was borked but the result is the same.

I've never heard about this problem before, so this is new to me as well. It could be some bug in the driver from nvidia that make the no-3D setting on your system corrupt the game in some way.
I have a different problem with a recent driver from Nvidia, which affects SLI performance (driver version 347.88) - This makes playing with a dual-gpu setup impossible in some older games due to extremely choppy gameplay and serious crashes.. I found that out when playing through some of my older games in my library (such as Half-Life 2 and Call of Duty) It also made my Mass Effect gameplay choppy, so I had to leave the SLI-setting to "off"

Try installing the latest Nvidia driver and see if the problem continues

And by the way. I love your Tali-mod for ME3 :)

I just replaced my GTX550 Ti with a GTX750Ti and updated the driver (not all because of ME1 but just wanted better card). The problem persists but now I don't have the option of going into 3D vision and playing in 3D where the problem disappears (the setup wont offer me the correct passive 3D option...NOT red/green).

Here is a link to a screenshot showing the issue: Mediafire.com

This is bizarre. I have never seen this, did you try different drivers? It looks like some sort of software conflict with one if the following: overlays, drivers issues, or AA settings. Are you using tr-def or widescreen fixer, any kind of visual enhancers/profiles? If its not a software conflict or driver setting I am at a loss.

Getorex Apr 29 2015, 9:19am replied:

Not sure what tr-def is. Haven't installed a widescreen fixer (is there such an app for this game? I had to set it at custom so it would display properly on my 1920x1080 screen). Problem was there for "normal" resolutions too.

Unfortunately, the game is virtually unplayable like this.

Fixed! Sort of. I haven't actually fixed the texturing/overlay issue but have finally gotten 3D to work on my monitor again so I can switch to 3D and the overlays appear correctly.

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…
