About this mod

Add key bindings to activate and deactivate screenshot mode : freeze time, toggle fly cam, toggle the HUD.

Permissions and credits
Very simple mod to activate and deactivate screenshot mode : freeze time, toggle fly cam, toggle the HUD.


You will need to modify the configuration file BIOInput.ini, located in the folder "Documents\BioWare\Mass Effect\Config".

Browse to that file, open it in a text editor, and add the following lines to the [BIOC_Base.BioPlayerInput] section of the file.

Bindings=(Name="G", InputMode=BIO_INPUT_MODE_NONE, Command="SloMo 0 | ToggleFlyCam | ToggleHUD",Control=False,Shift=False,Alt=False)
Bindings=(Name="H", InputMode=BIO_INPUT_MODE_NONE, Command="SloMo 1 | ToggleFlyCam | ToggleHUD",Control=False,Shift=False,Alt=False)



In the lines above, pressing the G key freezes time, activates the fly cam and deactivates the HUD; while H unfreezes time, deactivates the fly cam and reactivates the HUD.

You can customize the exact bindings to your liking, see guide here. The important part is the combination of three commands separated by "|" :
- SloMo 0 : freeze time
- ToggleFlyCam : toggle fly cam on and off
- ToggleHUD : toggle HUD off and on

Other useful commands and information (thanks to Tajfun403) :

- Tiledshot x y : make screenshots at x times the resolution of your monitor. y is how many pixels overlap between each tiled shot, it should be set to around your window height divided by 2.5.
You need to disable whole HUD using Show Scaleform before using it. Screenshots will be saved in *.BMP format in C:\Users\%USERNAME%\Documents\BioWare\Mass Effect\BIOGame\Screenshots and named Highres_Screenshot_00000(number).
You can't make photos with a GUI with this method.
- Slomo 0 doesn't really freeze the time. It only makes everything about 100 times slower. If you prefer a complete freeze of time, you can replace it with PlayersOnly instead. It works as a toggle.
- ToggleHUD leaves the power bar and some parts of the HUD visible. You can use Show Scaleform instead - it works as a toggle and hides everything except selectors. You can toggle selectors by using Show Lensflares. It hides lens flares from sun as well.
