    I'm tired of answering questions that are already in the FAQ. Or helping people that didn't follow the instructions. RTFM before posting anything !
    If your post is removed, you know why.


    If you have a legitimate issue not answered in the FAQ :
    - Make sure it's not answered in the FAQ (see description)
    - Make sure it's not answered in the tutorial
    If both the above don't cover your issue, please open a bug report in the Nexus bug section :
    - Send screenshots and the installer's debug log, if applicable. See how to upload a log and make a diagnostic.
    - If the issue is texture-related, send a save game where it can easily be seen.
    - Give a precise description of the issue you are having by answering the following questions :


    Join us on Discord to discuss your issue. We're more active there than on Nexus. Link !

    0.- Base game source (DVD / Origin / Steam)
    1.- Base game in vanilla state (unmodded) (y/n)
    2.- BW DLCs installed (y/n and, if so, how many?)
    3.- Other mod(s) installed (y/n and, if so, which one(s)?)
    If yes, were these other mods installed before or after A.L.O.T ?
    4- SweetFX, ENB, ReShade installed (y/n and, if so, which one?)

    I installed a lot and MEUITM using a lot installer and now everything is kinda blurry, especially the texts (in Codex, Journal, etc). Anyone know a solution ?

      A.L.O.T doesn't make changes to fonts. Do you have any anti aliasing set up ?

      If you installed the Reshade that comes with MEUITM, it's could be the CA setting and can be turned off by hitting Shift+F2 and toggling Chromatic Aberration.

      Thanks guys for the amazing mod and the prompt reply. What Mycenia said was correct. That was also what Meuitm's author suggested and it worked.

    I seem to be having a problem that I can't find anywhere else. I'm running the Steam Version with both DLCs installed. The only Mod I have is the controller mod.

    The installer for a lot is in D:\Mod Library\Mass Effect\a lot Textures by CreeperLava\a lot Installer.

    I can't get the installer to install the net update NET version 4.7.1. It won't install automatically and it installs in a random folder in my D:\ So I tried manually but it says my operating system isn't supported. I'm running Windows 10 Home N. All freshly installed. Also Windows SmartScreen wouldn't let me run the exe at first as well.

    Here's part of my log from where I tried to install the net update:

    EDIT: Done some more digging around, It looks like I would have to upgrade to Windows 10 Pro for the net framework update. So don't worry about responding.

      I don't see why it wouldn't be supported on Home. Does it work if you try downloading the .NET update from here ? https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=56116

      You are using a version of windows 10 from 2015, July. This is the first edition of windows 10 and has been unsupported by Microsoft for over a year, and as such, does not work with the new .net (and we don't support unsupported OS). You need to upgrade windows to a newer version of 10.

    Hey there CreeperLava,

    Great installer, very impressed with how easy to use and elegant is is.
    I think there may be an issue with the install information however.

    For ME1 I imported and installed everything on the list, except for the better hair, including a user file (HR Explore Armor). Now I'm pretty sure they all installed correctly, but the a lot installer is not saying they were installed like with the a lot main file and MEUITM (just addon file is imported).

    Could you confirm for me if this is indeed the case and the installer just hasn't updated the information in the case of those mods?

    Here is an image so you can see what I'm looking at:

      The installation of user files isn't tracked like A.L.O.T or MEUITM. If A.L.O.T has been installed, you can rest assured they're installed as well :).

      Ah I figured it might have been something along those lines.
      Thank you for the swift reply and putting my mind at ease!

      You and the rest of the extremely talemted modding team have made this ME trilogy playthrough something really special.

      So serious props! :)

      Hmm, I have actually found an issue with the installer you might want to take a look at.
      When installing MEUITM through a lot installer and selecting install soft shadows, they don't actually get installed.
      Well at least they don't show up in-game (checked by looking at Chakwas' hair, it doesn't cast soft shadows like it should).

      The workaround for now is to install MEUITM using its dedicated installer and then installing the rest of the a lot packages separately using the a lot installer. Soft shadows show up just fine then.

      Might be an issue just on my end but I figured you'd want to check it out.

      Hmm, that work-around I mentioned doesn't actually work. Installing a lot separately after MEUITM still disables soft shadows. If I install MEUITM after a lot I get an install error for MEUITM saying an incompatible previous installation ocurred and it needs to abort.

      Could you take a look at the issue? It seems something about a lot disables the soft shadows.
      Thanks!

      Soft shadows is fixed in v399.
      If you installed via meuitm installer it will not keep soft shadows.

      So if I just install MEUITM and a lot through the newest version of the a lot installer soft shadows should work?

      I've made a bug report in the Discord, since I figured that would be more appropriate.

    3.- Other mod(s) installed - nope
    4- SweetFX, ENB, ReShade installed - nope

      There is a new build of MEMNoGui we are testing. I assume you are all using polish or russian version, which appears to not work properly with a lot Installers MEMNoGui.

      If you are okay with helping test this, please opt into beta mode through Settings > Beta Mode. Please note that beta mode is for testing features and may not fully work. Please report results, successful or failure here. Please make sure to include links to diagnostic + log in the event of failure.

      Also, I'm using the standard english DVD version. Thanks for the update.

    The 6.0 Textures direct download link needs re-uploaded. It's missing files and throws a guaranteed CRC error upon extraction and an extraction error in a lot every time, effectively rendering any form of installation impossible. Tested 5 different times.

    Omg can I express how grateful I am that A.L.O.T. installer exists. Seriously this is the best texture manager I have ever used. I install all the textures including MEUITM and some other textures. And afterwards i opened MEM program to "update my LODs" and boom, the magic happened. I basically let the installer do all the work. My game looks so amazing with my Tweaked MEUITM Reshade. Thank you and the team for this wonderful work on not just the textures but the installer as well. :D

      I'll hop on discord, but now I'm getting:

      a lot Installer has encountered a serious fatal startup crash:
      Could not load file or assembly 'CommandLine, Version=2.2.1.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=de6f01bd326f8c32' or one of its dependencies. Operation is not supported. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80131515)

      An attempt was made to load an assembly from a network location which would have caused the assembly to be sandboxed in previous versions of the .NET Framework. This release of the .NET Framework does not enable CAS policy by default, so this load may be dangerous. If this load is not intended to sandbox the assembly, please enable the loadFromRemoteSources switch. See http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=155569 for more information.

      This is because windows is blocking dll's that appear to come from over a network. This is normally solved by extracting using 7z or winrar or etc, just not using built in windows explorer - I am not sure how some users are extracting 7z archives with windows, which is how this issue seems to be coming up for them.

      That's the expected behaviour. You're not really supposed to close and open the installer many times, just once to install A.L.O.T, so persistence wouldn't be very useful.
