MEHEM is a reinterpretation of the endings of Mass Effect 3, which allows Commander Shepard to survive the final mission, among many other changes. It features custom videos and slides, re-engineered gameflow, original as well as re-arranged voice acting, new music, etc.

What does MEHEM do in detail (obvious spoiler warning)?
- It removes the catalyst scene. No ifs, not buts. It's gone for good. (So is your choice, you will now destroy the reapers no matter what)
- It introduces a whole new scene showing how Joker disobeys orders and keeps the Normandy in the fight long enough for Shepard to be rescued (with the help of a certain Alliance captain :))
- The Normandy no longer crash-lands on the Weirdo Planet
- The Geth and EDI survive. EDI is now present during the memorial and new slides were added to the epilogue that will show the geth, if they are alive.
- The epilogue slides now show survivors on the Citadel, most prominently Aria and Cpt. Baley.
- You will see your Shepard reunited with his crew (and even some interaction unique to your LI if the LI is part of the Normandy crew). While they don't exactly have a party, now it is a real bitter-sweet ending with the emphasis on "sweet" rather than on "bitter"
- The musical score is changed quite extensively, including the credits song
- Since by the time of v0.3, quite a few people have contributed to this mod, I implemented some MEHEM credits in the stargazer scene.
- Since v0.2, Harbinger will say a few lines during the beam run

New features and improvements:
- The mod is now a DLC
- JohnP's additional LI mod is implemented

MEHEM, the Mass Effect Happy Ending Mod just got updated to v0.5. The biggest change is that the mod now uses the DLC method, meaning it is self contained in it's own DLC, rather than changing game files that already existed. This increases compatibility with other mods and general user convenience.

Other updates include the addition of Miranda and Jack to the memorial scene (if romanced by Shepard), a higher quality final flyby video, fixed subtitles and a restored NG+ import capability.

MEHEM v0.5 Installer

With switch to DLC also gives us more freedom for further additions in future versions of the mod, so stay tuned.

To get the best MEHEM ending, do I still need to score above 4,000 EMS?

Nope, the cut-off for the "good" MEHEM ending is somewhere around 2600.

I haven't got ME3 so I can't play it yet but I can suggest one improvement: Indoctrination Theory.

This theory is disproven by one simple thing, the prothean computer doesn't detect any indoctrination.

No offense intended just my five cents, I like what you've done don't get me wrong. I'm a big fan of ME and look forward to Andromeda but I don't think this ending is the best. Sure it wasn't the best way a game could end cause Shepard loses his/her life[except from the looks destruction ending] but still none the less the point of that message was Bioware saying how to let go emotionally and its an healthy trait to have especially at an older age. I hated how I ended the game with Liara[synthesis]but I will always love the normandy crew. In my opinion one life to save trillions more seems like a good way to go out.

Again not trying to be mean just stating cause as curious to know why people were so upset with it. I'd say loop holes but majority seems cause Shepard doesn't live/no happy ending as this mod states. I just hope you'll see some of the old universe people[Liara/Wrex/etc] in the new one.

Also going to try this mod just to see what you've achieved considering modding in ME universe itself is no easy feat or difficult considering the tools for it.

Whilst I agree with most of that, (*cough* Indoctrination Theory *cough*).

Any chance for 0.6? ;)

hey. when I start the game it crashes immedietly.(yeah, without any window popping out) I suspect that I done something wrong with the installation process or maybe I lack the requirements to run this mod. Can you help me? my version is up to date. And I have EC and complete dlc. (non-steam)

This happened after MEHEM v0.5 instillation? That's odd because no MEHEM files should be laoded until after the game starts.
Which language are you using? Are you using any other mods besides MEHEM? Check "Your ME3 install directory>\BioGame\DLC\": Can you see a folder called "DLC_CON_MEHEM" and if so, how big is it?
Of course, you can also try to uninstall MEHEM and ME3, delete all files in your ME3 install directory and re-install.

Makes the ending less "art" and more enjoyable. Well done to all who have worked on this, and I look forward to the versions to come!
