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 :)

(cont'd) 3) Sometimes the Mass Effect game can be "stupid" and "undo" the hi-res settings like my game did for some reason after the mod was installed .... if the game isn't looking awesome go back into "graphics" (video settings) for the game and check to make sure it's at maximum resolution possible and make sure ultra high textures and so forth are check-marked if your PC can support it (which I imagine most decent modern day PC's should nowadays ;) ) .. I know this all seems obvious to you and most people but wasn't to me, could save stupid people like myself time and frustration ;)... but again amazing, AMAZING mod game looks great thank you so much! :)

Thanks for the tip, I did the same thing and it took me a while to realise the game reverted to default settings and I had to change it back to maximum settings again, lol. I was sitting there thinking....why doesn't this look right? :P

(cont'd) 2) if you're getting an "insert disc 2" error message when running installer don't be stupid and insert the actual game CD two (retail copy of Mass Effect) like I did :P .. this means you have not unzipped the files like you should have that you downloaded from this website, unzip and extract to the install folder for Mass Effect and browse to file you just unzipped if necessary, "insert CD two" refers to unzipped zip file part 2, "insert CD three" means unzipped file part three and so forth ....

Amazing mod CDAMJC this game totally rocks now thank you so much! Ok feel free to call me stupid but... wondering if you can add some instructions for really stupid people like me " :P ... for example 1) those Noveria crashes are just plain evil and sometimes this mod will create issues with being able to take the train to the rift station, make sure to download and install mass effect 1.02 patch and even then may be forced to re-install game w/o your mod, take the train to it's destination, then reinstall mod as I did.. back up saved games in my documents folder first of course! :)

I am probably doing this all wrong but I could use some input. I installed M.E.U.I.T.M. 060214, but the files are "SFM" not "tpf". I cant activate any of the files since texmod cannot see them. Any suggestions? Thanks.

Thankfully this mod does not use texmod. It has its own installer, you just open the installer (with the files in the same folder), select the mass effect directory and install. Follow the instructions in the readme, worked for me.

i have a couple of questions, first off, does this mod need any other .exe besides the installer? like hacks and other not so legal things? and secondly is there a way to edit any of the texture options? like film grain and other stuff.

No nothing illegal here, you need to have the purchased game updated to version 1.02 for the mod to function properly, no .exe is included in the mod except the installer which is just that, an installer, so you need the .exe that came with your game when you purchased it.

No options on what to and not to install (it's all with the installer or do it yourself with the tpfs. This is because I have no clue how to program an installer that intricate, but film grain can be turned on or off in the game's graphics options menu.

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…
