Trouble Shooting: Game
Origin ME3 is known for a game install error that can prevent it from running, to fix it, do the following.
(Make change to DX files and run repair for dark or black game shadows.)
Goto C:\Program Files (x86)\Origin Games\Mass Effect 3\__Installer\directx\ and create a folder called redistcabs.
Go into the directx\redist folder and select and cut all the .cab files out of the folder, then goto directx\redistcabs and paste the .cab files here.
Go back into the directx\redist and run the DXSetup.exe.
Lastly, open Origin and hit the install on the Mass Effect3, it should take a few seconds and then say the game is ready to run.
Your game should run now. Setup game, then apply mod.
If you have any further issues, run a repair on the game and this will correct it, including stalled dlc and black shadows, due to the original DX failure.
Trouble Shooting: Mod
Install the DX9 final release if you haven't done so previously. DX9 Final Release June2010
DX install: Download and run the file, tell it to extract to c:\dx, then after goto c:\dx and run the dxsetup file.
Check to make sure you are using the newest graphics drivers.
Try disabling any turbo or overclocking software.
If you experience issues with the ENB D3D9 try this: CTD, Graphics issues.
Replace the d3d9.dll with one of the alternates provided in the altd3d9 folder.
Updated version contains DXGI files. Files should work with all Windows versions.
Nvidia users can use this mod (Thanks to khalilsm) to allow the mod to run if you have any issues.
Rename the d3d9.dll that came with this mod to d3d9orig.dll and place the d3d9.dll from that mod with it.
