Key points

Saves can be imported from Mass Effect (see Import Mass Effect saves).
In-game graphics options miss half of the actual settings, which are thus usually left to the erratic first run auto-detection to decide.

Widescreen resolution

Use Flawless Widescreen
Allows changing FOV
Doesn't work with Origin version properly[13]
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[14][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[15][16]
  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 in-game 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

Enable joystick move to be used with mouse[18]
  • 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")

Changing language

Steam version can simply adjust this setting from the game proprieties
  1. Make sure the alternative language is installed
  2. Go to <path-to-game>\Mass Effect 2\data\
  3. Open sku.ini with a text editor
  4. Set TextLanguage to one of the language codes above


VOLanguage only seems to work with the Polish retail build[22][23]
This is also going to be the dubbing language for the next fix

Independent text and voiceover

Unlike the previous game, subtitles are stored in the same file of UI and other strings (so they can't be separated)
Replace the global text files[24]
Only the English localization is going to stick around when another one is installed (if even). With others, backups of the pertinent files from the YYY version will be needed
  1. Go to <path-to-game>\BioGame\CookedPC\
  2. Copy BIOGame_YYY.tlk and BioGame_Update_YYY.tlk
  3. Go to the configuration file(s) location.
  4. Create the BIOGame\Published\CookedPC directory
  5. Paste the aforementioned files, and rename their subfix from YYY to XXX


XXX is the language code for dubbing
YYY is the language code for everything else

Change your EA Online Account password to only alphanumeric characters[25]
Length limits for both the e-mail address (100) and the password (16) also exist.[26]

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[27]
  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[28]
  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[29]
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 is set to the highest setting[30]
Set the proper Brightness in-game, once having checked display calibration is right[31][32]
Adjust filmic response shader[33]
  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[34][35]

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

The freeze happens while walking through the ground-level corridor that connects to the other side of the map under Liara's office, which may cause a black screen and CTD.
In most cases the problem is caused by incompatibility with the video or audio drivers of the user's computer.
Enable windowed or windowed borderless mode[citation needed]
  1. Open Mass Effect 2 Config > Video
  2. Windowed > Windowed
  3. Window Mode > Borderless
  4. In the menubar select Mass Effect 2 > Save Settings
After passing through the corridor, it's safe to enable fullscreen mode again.

Crash during vehicle chase on Illium

In most cases the problem is caused by incompatibility with the video or audio drivers of the user's computer.
The crash happens at the end of the taxi chase with Liara on Illium during the cutscene, where the game freezes completely showing either a frozen image or a black screen while the music continues.
Use config tool to change from fullscreen mode to windowed borderless
Run in Windows 7 compatibility mode
Launch the game with the -nomoviestartup parameter
Uninstall and re-install all game files and DLCs (or use Origin's Repair feature)
Issue may still persist after all of these have been done.

Crash when entering the galaxy map

Re-enable audio[36]
  1. Open %USERPROFILE%\Documents\BioWare\Mass Effect 2\BIOGame\Config\GamerSettings.ini
  2. Delete the DisableAudio line.
  3. Save the file.

No sound even though it's On in the Configuration Utility

Make sure to disable any kind of OEM audio tool or enhancement[37][38]
Run the game in windowed or borderless window mode[39][citation needed]

Unable to save any more games

Patch game files[40]
  1. Download Mass Effect 2 PCC Patcher (mirror)
  2. Extract the program in <path-to-game>\Binaries\ and open it
  3. Provide the path for the following packages and load them
    Engine.pcc: <path-to-game>\BioGame\CookedPC\Engine.pcc
    SFXGame.pcc: <path-to-game>\BioGame\CookedPC\SFXGame.pcc
  4. Go to Gameplay tab and tick Increase max saves count
  5. Save packages

Conrad Verner claims player has pointed gun at him

To prevent this bug use ME1 Recalibrated in Mass Effect and Project Variety here
Fix save file variable[41][42]
  1. Download ME2 Gibbed modified Save Editor (or Trilogy Save Editor).
  2. Run it and open your actual savegame.
  3. Go to Plot tab and then to ME1 Imported plot table.
  4. Go to Flags sub-tab and untick [Conrad] (3) Intimidated Conrad (Renegade).
  5. Save changes


This only works if the player has not spoken with the asari bar owner in Illium yet.

Importing ME1 character still launches the interactive story

This happens if you have installed the Genesis DLC (You can un-check it during download on Origin)
Can invalidate your ME1 character's decisions in place of new ones
Remove the DLC[43]
  1. Go to <path-to-game>\BioGame\DLC\
  2. Remove the DLC_DHME1 folder

Heavy geometry flicker and other artifacts

Disable any kind of forced AA
Use post-processing methods or downsampling alternatively

When moving the camera with the mouse the game starts stuttering/having performance problems

This is likely an issue with the mouse polling rate on systems with Windows 10 installed
Lower mouse polling rate to 500Hz or lower[citation needed]

General stuttering or frame drops

Disable the Origin in-game overlay[44]
Disable ASUS Gamer OSD[45]

Selection circles on characters and interactable objects do not appear

Lens flare can be disabled actually for good with a mod[46]
Make sure "LensFlares" is set to "true"[47]

  2. Add or change the line LensFlares= and set it to true.
  3. Save the file and exit.

Textures become black as you approach them

You most likely had A Lot of Textures (ALOT) applied to the game in the past. Apply it again or use one of the fixes below.
Launch the game through ME3Tweaks Mod Manager
Set the Texture LODs to Vanilla with LOD Switcher in ALOTInstaller's Settings
Delete Configuration Files
  1. Open %USERPROFILE%\Documents\BioWare\Mass Effect 2\BIOGame\
  2. Delete the Config folder

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 Word or the default Windows Notepad (at least until Windows 10 1809). They will permanently corrupt your ini file.
  • Advanced users could also use Mass Effect 2 Coalesced Editor or ME2 Coalesced Compiler
  • 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.
