DLC and expansion packs

For some time now Origin will overwrite any installation of the game,[2] including Steam, with a stand alone client independent version of the game with all bought DLCs. Authorization for the DLCs still is dependent of ingame login but it'll work without Origin or Steam.
All of the DLCs are available in a bundle on Origin, bypassing the Bioware Points. Steam and retail versions can use separate installers to access them for free (direct links are provided below for convenience).

Widescreen resolution

Use Flawless Widescreen
Allows changing FOV
Doesn't work with Origin version properly[10]
Use ThirteenAG's Mass Effect Trilogy FOV Fix
  1. Download the archive from here.
  2. Download and extract the archive to the game directory, where the exe is located (Binaries or Binaries\Win32)


Automatically corrects in-game FOV (Hor+)
Works with Origin version.
Works with Mass Effect 1 and Mass Effect 3
16:9 only[citation needed]

Field of view (FOV)

This method involves Coalesced.ini file. Make sure you have understood what this means.
Modify field of view[11][citation needed]
  1. Go to the configuration file(s) location.
  2. Backup then open Coalesced.ini.
  3. Add the following line under the [SFXGame.SFXGameModeDefault] section:
    Bindings=( Name="Period", Command="set SFXGame.SFXCameraMode FOV 100" )
  4. Edit the key name and FOV value to your liking.
  5. Save changes


Can be used in conjunction with Flawless Widescreen providing that "FOV Limiting" is disabled.

Vertical sync (Vsync)

Disable Vsync[citation needed]
  1. Go to the configuration file(s) location.
  2. Open GamerSettings.ini.
  3. Add UseVsync=False line under the [SystemSettings] section
  4. Save changes

High frame rate

Arrange frame rate smoothing[citation needed]
  1. Go to the configuration file(s) location.
  2. Open GamerSettings.ini.
  3. Add one of the following lines under the [SystemSettings] section:
    SmoothFrameRate=False to completely disable the FPS cap
    MaxSmoothedFrameRate=XX to raise the FPS cap (where XX is the threshold)
  4. Save changes


You also need to disable Vsync for this to work (see Vertical sync (Vsync)).

Mouse acceleration

Disable Mouse acceleration[12]
  1. Go to the configuration file(s) location.
  2. Open GamerSettings.ini.
  3. Add the following lines:
  4. Save changes
This may not work with the Origin or Steam versions. If this is the case, make these changes in Coalesced.ini (see Editing Coalesced.ini).

Mouse sensitivity

Fix uneven and/or excessive mouse sensitivity
  1. Disable the Origin ingame overlay. The overlay (on Origin versions at least) is the cause of uneven mouse input and not mouse acceleration. Disabling fixes this.

If your mouse sensitivity is still too high you will need to modify the variable in Coalesced.ini

  1. Locate your Coalesced.ini inside <path-to-game>\BioGame\Config\PC\Cooked
  2. Make a copy of the file
  3. Open it with a text editor that can handle UNIX-format files (Notepad++ is recommended)
  4. Search for and locate "MouseSensitivity"
  5. Change the value from 1.0 to 0.2 or your preference.
  6. Save


Don't modify anything else in the Coalesced.ini otherwise ME2 will fail to start. If that happens, simply restore the backup copy you made as above and start again.

Controller support

This mod brings full XInput controller support to the game with haptic feedback support. This mod is currently complete (see official thread).

Use the ME2Controller mod.

For DualShock prompts use PlayStation Icons

Simultaneous Mouse and joystick support for Steam Controller users

Enable joystick move to be used with mouse[14]
  • Go to file location <path-to-game>\BioGame\Config\PC\Cooked\Coalesced.ini
  • Open up the Coalesced.ini file with notepad or notepad++
  • Under [WinDrv.WindowsClient] change the value for AllowJoystickInput from 0 to 1.
  • Under [SFXGame.SFXGameModeBase] add the following lines
Bindings=(Name="XboxTypeS_LeftX",Command="Axis aStrafe Speed=1.0 DeadZone=0.3")
Bindings=(Name="XboxTypeS_LeftY",Command="Axis aBaseY Speed=1.0 DeadZone=0.3")

Issues unresolved

EA Online password form doesn't accept some special characters

Includes ", *, /, :, <, >, ?, \ and |
Change your EA Online Account password[18]

"Unable to authorize the listed DLC" error

"Unable to authorize the listed DLC" error[citation needed]
  1. Use Binkw32 proxy DLL.
  2. Block internet connection of ME2game.exe through your firewall settings.


Optionally you can disable automatic login through in-game settings although any time the game does attempt to connect it'll reverse the DLC crack.
If after installing the new binkw32.dll, the game fails to start, giving an error like "binkw32.dll is either not designed to run on Windows or it contains an error", try the gcc compiled version instead: https://github.com/Erik-JS/masseffect-binkw32/files/705674/binkw32-me2_gcc_alt.zip

Issues fixed

Installation interrupted

Install the game from a shared drive from another computer[citation needed]
  1. Insert Disc 1 and share it through Windows.
  2. When the installer asks for the second drive, stop sharing the first disc, replace it with the second and start sharing it.
Fix the corrupted folder path in Windows registry[19]
  1. Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\BioWare\Mass Effect 2\
  2. Find the Path variable on the right and double click it to open for editing.
  3. Add a backslash (\) to the end of the path string and hit OK.
  4. The game should now launch from Origin.

Physx Error on Startup

Install Nvidia Physx System Software

Cerberus Network autologin failure

Enable .NET Framework 3.5.1[citation needed]
  1. Go to Windows's Control Panel.
  2. Go to Programs -> Turn Windows features on or off.
  3. In the tree stucture, check both boxes under Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5.1.
  4. Restart your system.

Crash at the end of Kasumi's loyalty mission and when leaving the Shadow Broker's Ship

Use Kasumi Crash Fix[20]
  1. Navigate to <path-to-game>\Binaries\
  2. Download ME2's binkw32 proxy DLL and extract it there
  3. Create a new folder named asi (i.e. <path-to-game>\Binaries\asi\)
  4. Download the fix and extract it there
Launch the game with the -nomoviestartup parameter[21]
Game has to be restarted without this argument once past this section, to avoid missing out videos later
Apply Kasumi DLC Crash Fix with ME3Tweaks Mod Manager's ASI Mod Manager in the Mod Management Tab

Dark lighting in cutscenes

Make sure the number of cinematic lights isn't set to the lowest setting.
Adjust filmic response shader[22]
  1. Open <path-to-game>\Engine\Shaders\UberPostProcessBlendPixelShader.usf with a text editor.
  2. Find float3 x = max(0,InLinearColour-0.004); on line 45
  3. Replace with float3 x = max(0,InLinearColour);
Alternatively, rather than deleted, the darkening factor could be tweaked to other ⩽0.001 values[23][24]

Clipping into walls/objects

This method involves Coalesced.ini file. Make sure you have understood what this means.
Add the option to noclip out of the object[citation needed]
  1. Under [SFXGame.SFXGameModeDefault] add:
Bindings=( Name="Add", Command="Ghost | OnRelease Walk")


Holding the NUMPAD + key in-game will now make you noclip until you release the button.


OR, if you have console enabled, hit tab and type "ghost" then hit enter. Then when you're out of the wall or through the spot you needed to get through, do the same and type walk. Then you don't have to leave the game.

Game freeze on Illium

In most cases the problem is caused by incompatibility with the video or audio drivers of the user's computer.
The freeze happens,Walking through the ground level corridor, that connects to the other side of the map, under Liara's office may cause a black screen and CTD.

Editing Coalesced.ini

Some of the fixes for this game require you to modify this special file, but editing it in the normal way will cause the game to crash.
Editing Coalesced.ini[citation needed]
  1. Locate your Coalesced.ini inside <path-to-game>\BioGame\Config\PC\Cooked
  2. Open it with a text editor that can handle UNIX-format files (Notepad++ is recommended)
  3. Make the changes you have to and save
  4. Download ME2IniFixer (mirror) and extract it in the folder your Coalesced.ini file is
  5. Run it from there.


Do not use default Windows Notepad or Word. They will permanently corrupt your ini file. (WORKS with notepad!)
  • Advanced users could also use Mass Effect 2 Coalesced Editor (mirror) which is recommended
  • It might be necessary to make the Coalesced.ini file read-only (right-click -> Properties -> Attributes: Read-only) as the game can restore your edits. If you want to change anything in it, simply uncheck the Read-only box.
