Description

Many people think Mass Effect 3's Multiplayer should have been more similar to Battlefield or Battlefront with large-scale epic battles and the like; Mass Effect: Unification does just that.


May the Fifth be with you. Wait that's not right--

Release Notes:
- The Geth Spitfire model will be in the next patch (which will actually be a patch this time). It wasn't able to get finished in time for this release. Sorry.
- The Config Tool, while included, is still a tad buggy - but that's really only the case with the setting states in the Misc. Commands tab.
- Also in the Config Tool, the Help menu is vastly unfinished and is using...interesting placeholder images (which the app's developer placed there himself), so don't bother looking in there. :P

DEVELOPER: Frayed Wires Studios, Marth8880
CONTACT: company@frayedwiresstudios.com
RELEASED: Monday, May 5th, 2014

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS:
1. Run MassEffectUnificationSetup_r3_standalone.exe or MassEffectUnificationSetup_r3_standalone_Steam.exe and follow the on-screen instructions to install.
2. After the installation completes, the Configuration Utility will launch. With this tool, you can perform various operations including, but not limited to: toggling the mod on or off without uninstalling it; determining whether Shepard’s class should be a specific class or randomized; enabling and disabling AI heroes; and changing which GUI is used (i.e., the new, red or blue menus). This tool can also be launched from the “Mass Effect – Unification” Start Menu folder.
3. Launch Star Wars: Battlefront II and enjoy playing the updated release of Mass Effect: Unification!

UN-INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS:
1. Open your Start Menu.
2. Go to Programs / All Programs, and find the Start Menu folder called “Mass Effect – Unification”.
3. Select the folder and inside it, select “Uninstall Mass Effect – Unification”.
4. Follow the on-screen instructions and let the uninstaller run.
5. Play something else, weirdo. :)

NOTE: Uninstalling Mass Effect: Unification will restore the original stock shell (including the music).

THE STORY:
In summer of 2010, I played the demo for Mass Effect 2 after seeing it on Steam – I immediately then ran out and obtained a copy of Mass Effect and Mass Effect 2 for the PC (because console shooters are dumb). After completing the first game, I thought to myself, "Huh, certainly there must be a Mass Effect mod for Star Wars Battlefront II!" After failing to find such a mod, I completed my first map that I had been working on since February of that same year; I started working on the Sol Map Pack, released the pilot map, and in around July of 2011, I started the gargantuan project we all love and know as “Mass Effect: Unification.”

THIS MOD CURRENTLY FEATURES:
- a massive amount of specially hand-crafted assets specifically tailored for this mod. This would not have been possible without the help of The Nasal Abyss, Scott_W.Pilgrim (agentsmith38), THEWULFMAN, AQT, Gametoast, and Frayed Wires Studios.
- support for all stock land maps minus Endor.
- three custom Mass Effect maps: Eden Prime, the Prothean Skyway, and Virmire.
- a dedicated server! (Name: “Unification (R3) USA West”)
- WAY too much content to list here.

WHAT MORE TO EXPECT:
- Various patches and hotfixes that correct bugs and add small features.
- DLC expansion packs that will include new maps, modes, campaigns, sides, and more.

MOD NOTES:
- Single-player matches on all maps have random side variations and random Shepard hero classes whereas multi-player matches have a preset variation and Shepard class (per-map specific).
- All maps minus the Prothean Skyway - which has Team Deathmatch and 2-flag CTF - support the Conquest mode and most maps support either 1-flag or 2-flag CTF, which, by the way, is INCREDIBLY fun and difficult (especially Hoth).
- A new save profile called “MEU-Newcomer” is installed along with the mod; this profile is configured to enhance your playing experience with recommended game, audio, and control settings. While using the MEU-Newcomer profile isn’t required, it’s most certainly recommended.
- This mod adds 38 missions to the game's runtime heap.

If you do not have the official 1.1 patch AND the unofficial 1.3 patch installed, nothing from the mod will be loaded into the game. In regards to the config tool, did you install the .NET Framework 4.0 setup that was run with the mod's installer? Also, which version of Windows are you running?

Note: if the Configuration Utility still keep crashing when you click "submit" start the Configuration Utility in UAC mode

2ND Note: I got it working but all i get is the music and the GUI and if i try to play, it either crashes (to desktop) or all i get is Stock SWBF2.

Navigate to your game's addon directory where you put maps and junk. Is a folder called "ME5" in there? Also, try uninstalling the mod (via the uninstaller) and try reinstalling. Chances are there are duplicate configuration flag files or something. :O

Although the ME5 folder is there but
C:\Program Files (x86)\LucasArts\Star Wars Battlefront II\GameData\addon (is that right?)

It is very unfortunate that what looks to be a great mod is nearly impossible to install. After wasting my entire day of trying to get this to work I can honestly say I can't be bothered anymore. Many conflicts if you have your steam located in a different spot than it's generic install location. Browsing and selecting your new Battlefront location causes many problems. I have been unable to get R2 or R3 to work. There are horrible instructions on how to do this. Am I supposed to install all 3 in order? Or is only the latest required. In any case I have to go to bed to wake up early for bed. ****.

Just copy your Battlefront II directory to the install path. You do not need to nor should you install all three versions in order. Only install the latest version; each version thus far has been a full version - no patches.

We apologize for the inconvenience. :( Inno Setup Compiler, while great, can be very difficult to work with and very frustrating to get things right.

Hey so I tried what you said and I have been able to install it into my Battlefront folder. When I start the Config Utility it goes " 1. 2. 3. 4. then says '0Could not find a part of the path C:Users/AppData/Local/Mass Effect - Unification/BatchStates.txt'. then 8. Command Execution successful" The options are all there, they are not greyed out. Can pick gameplay, factions and all that. Though when I go to start Battlefront 2 in steam it is just star wars not the mod. Thanks for the help btw

It does it is at the very bottom. So inside the directory, when I open the install folder there is another SWBF2 folder in there, when I open that it looks like the mass effect files and folders. Is that not where it's supposed to be? so it's like: steamapps\common\SWBF2\Install\SWBF2. Inside of that is addon, data, save games and the uninstall.exe for ME

Marth8880 May 8 2014, 9:25pm replied:

Also, question(s)/message from the developer:

"Ask if they're using a 64- or 32-bit system. It's possible that when it didn't find the files where it thought they'd be, it made those directories itself. But because none of the files would have been generated with it, selecting them would do no good. So when they selected the bin and cfg folders, they were selecting the empty ones on accident (which they should be able to tell by whether or not the (x86) notation is in the "Program Files" portion of the path. Another way to check would be to check both folders manually to see if the one they're selecting has any files in it (and checking to make sure there isn't an empty on in the other pathway)."
