    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 the links to the log and diagnostic of your Installer. See how to upload a log and make a diagnostic.
    - If the issue is texture-related, send screenshots and a save game where it can easily be seen.
    - Pirated games aren't supported. They may or may not work.

    Hey CreeperLava, I'm done with my Playthrough of the game with a lot for the Trilogy, I would like to make a backup of the Modded games on my external Harddrive, like this the next time I'm ready to play, I can just copy past everything without having to redownload all the files,

    what's the best way to go about it

      Just copy the AL0T Installer folder. There will probably have been updates for your mods next time you play, it wouldn't make sense to back up the whole modded game.

    The link for Mantis m-92 HR texture by thedarkfalkon doesn't work - in fact, just trying to download it has locked my Microsoft account, which is great.

    Hello. I got a little problem with a lot mod when I start the game in main menu the textures are just all black nothing there. When I played it for last time game was normal to play. Really don't know what's happening. I'm gonna try to reinstall game and mod.

    Thank you so much for this mod. I have played the Mass Effect games many times over without modding them. I cannot imagine playing it now without your mod installed. Great Job!!!

    Cheers,

    I have no idea why but the game wasn't working for me after installing. I'm using the ME2Controller mod so I followed the guide totally - empty directory, clean install, backed up the original install, moved the ME2Controller mod's BioGame folder in to install it, start a new game then get past character creation, save. I'd then boot the game back up, load the save to see if it worked, then it did. All fine. 

    But then I'd install AL0T and it wouldn't restore the save nor would starting a New Game do anything (it'd just freeze on the main menu). I repeated these steps a few times, totally clean installs each time, and I'd get the same problem every time. 

     


     

    But, I'm not posting this to ask for help on that. I went back and saw someone else had the same issue and deleted the DLC folder to fix it. I fixed it another way though and that was by not even touching the DLC folder but just restoring the vanilla binkw32.dll file - and now the game is restoring saves with both AL0T & ME2Controller mod and appears to be playing perfectly fine.

    So I don't really need help (just sending some info which may help others) but my question is - could using this version of the binkw32.dll file lead to more issues later on? Thanks!

      I had done, and I don't see my issue there even on an even more careful second reading (I installed AL0T after creating a character, I have a legit copy via Steam, etc.), but I've played with the stock .dll for a while now and it's all good so hopefully others can get something from what I did anyway Thanks again for the great mod.

      Looks like I skimmed your post too quickly, I didn't see the part where you installed AL0T after creating a new game. You'd have to do a full diag after installing just the ME2Controller for me to be able to troubleshoot it, if you still care about it :)

    HI, CreeperLava I have been struggling for the past few days with you a lot mod for mass effect 2. I have modded a fair share in the past. the screenshots look great but I have followed every instruction to a tee and I still get either an error message during the final step or a message saying I have already had it downloaded and I must delete previous versions but I have done that each time. Thank you for your time.

    P.S thanks for the super quick reply and sorry that I didn't read your diagnostic post

      There seems to be many errors with your game files. I suggest removing completely your ME2 folder, and redownloading it from Origin or restoring from a backup if you made one with the installer. Then install your mods apart from AL0T and do a full diagnostic. Post that.

      Thank you :) If you don't have a backup yet, do it after you vanilla the game, a modded backup is useless.

      I was able to get past the 50% margin and it was looking hopeful but still failed.

      Are the DLCs all legit and installed fresh from Origin ? Did you use ME3Explorer at any point ? The errors happen on the DLCs.

      Yeah all DLC is legit and fresh straight from the origin when I downloaded the game. is it worth to just play without DLCs? It's just thats a lot of content I'm missing :(

    Does it change the Anderson face to a higher quality? and it´s compatible with the ME2Recalibrated texture overhaul of Anderson??

      Yes and yes. If you install ME2Re before AL0T, AL0T will overwrite ME2Re's texture. Install the ME2Re anderson texture after AL0T if you want it to overwrite AL0T.

Amazing work on the mod, the game looks absolutly stunning! Again sorry for the dumb question, i think i wont delete it for future moron like me

      Thx, i did look there but it dosent say anything about my problem. It mentions that it can mess with the controllers during char customisation but my issue is when i get the option to choose male or female in the star screen before the intro starts nothing happens after i choose male or female, its like the game dosent load after that because the music and background is still in motion im just stuck there and cant go back either. I dont want to be a pain but i really want this to work because the mod looks great!

      So, to be clear, after you click the button, nothing at all happens ? This certainly sounds like a problem with the controller. I would create the character on a vanilla game (use your backup if you have one), then swap the modded game back in.
