    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.

    Thank you so much for all your work!
     
    I have a question about these two outfit mods: 

    https://www.nexusmods.com/masseffect3/mods/316

    https://www.nexusmods.com/masseffect3/mods/1

    Is there a way to install these together with a lot? I'm asking because in the description it says ME3explorer is needed to install these outfits and a lot is incompatible with ME3explorer...

    Ty once again!

      You can install any .tpf file with the Mass Effect Modder, which is fully compatible with ALOT. Just download the MEM here: https://github.com/MassEffectModder

      Then use the MEM to install the tpf version of your desired mods. No need for ME3Explorer. Also, the next time you update a lot you can install any additional tpf files directly with the installer.

      These also include pcc files which a lot or MEM installers dont support.

      As wisegal said, install the tpfs after AL0T. The pccs should be installed before.

    Is there a way to update a lot 7.0 to 9.0 without having to reinstall the whole game?
    I have a lot of other mods installed and I hate going through all the effort and time to reinstall them again.

      No. That's just how ME modding works unfortunately

      You're asking me that ?? In my opinion it is, absolutely. But I'm not you, I can't make decisions in your stead.

    Shadows are too dark. Deleting the config file to be re-created fixes it but restores vanilla textures.

      There is a cap on texture resolution in the default config files. Open the Installer > Settings > Game Utilities > ME3 > Apply Game Settings and Apply LOD Settings.

      There's no setting that makes shadows darker. Can you screenshot the problem and post a diagnostic ? https://imgur.com/sflQV1U

    After fiddling around with a lot mod, sometimes FPS drops and it horrible lag spikes in Shepards Cabin in which i tried Low reso Prothean Sphere it worked but didn't fix the fps drops outside the Cabin (A glossy Cabin triggered me). I mess with the INI files and removed origin Overlay, it fixed my Lag issue but the graphics look fantastic on my GTX 1080 4GB. It would have been nice if there was a Low, Medium or High graphical option before installing than messing around with the INI files. But I'd guess Origin Overlay doesn't help the Majority of the time. I hate Origin So much, half of the time in newer games it Lags more than Steam titles. And i managed to fix the Cabin issue without Low reso prothean file.

    Hello, i have a texture-related problem, (probably) everytime i try to select Ashley on a mission the game crashes with the following errors:
    ME3Log - Logging started.
    Attempting to load unused mip #0 for Texture2D BIOG_HMF_ARM_EDI_R.EDIb.Textures.HMF_ARM_EDIb_Norm

    Besides of course, NOT using ashley as a squadmate, is there any solution to this? Or, worst case scenario, anyway to just uninstall this textures?

      I suggest reading the description of AL0T... Do not use ME3Explorer.

      I understand that I must not use ME3Explorer with a lot

      But how can I use Ashley hair then? :(
      It is written in the instructions

      Or there is another one mod with her hair that does need ME3Explorer ?
      I am confused

      Ah, I didn't see there were only upk files in that mod, apologies. I never came across this one, but it might indeed not be possible yet to install it with MEM. I'll ask the MEM author, but in the meantime you can also find good hairstyles here : https://www.nexusmods.com/masseffect3/mods/425 :)

      Oh... Maybe I am stupid, but I can not understand how to install .mod file before a lot because a lot installer is automatically installing a lot first...
      Or I must use another programm for installing .mod files?

      Ithought I read everything, but I can not find information about it...

      Oh boy, I wasn't completely awake apparently. You're right of course, it has to be installed after AL0T through the installer. Just drag & drop the file.

      You can use gibbed to change your hair on a custom shep. There should be instructions for that on one of the hair mod pages.

    Edit: This is regarding the MEHEM crash:

    When am i supposed to replace BioD_End002_500Choice.pcc from DLC_CON_END into the main game cookedpccconsole and MEHEM folders? If i do it before a lot, it fails to install when it gets to the file. Should i do it after?

      When I do that after a lot, I can get through TIM scene but it screws up all my textures (black polygons all over faces, black screens, huge black shadows, etc--like I'd expect from messing with a DLC after texture mod installation). Textures break for the entire game, any save and character.

      Please, can anyone confirm, if this is really an issue, or if this was only problem on user's side? I have installed older a lot with mehem on my second PC and I don't know, if I can safely upgrade it (I mean reinstall offcourse) or I should rather wait for permanent solution of this problem..

      And by the way, I have latest version od a lot (without mehem) installed on my main machine and it looks fabolous!! :)

      If it's version 8.x or older you have installed, you'll need a complete reinstall.

    For some reason a lot isn't detecting the backups I have of ME2 and 3 (might be because I moved the backups to another folder, or because of the a lot update, idk which). It's detecting my ME1 backup, but is there a way to edit the file paths a lot uses for the backups?

    Which log do I send? (ME2, ME3 or both). Here are the diagnostic links:

      "because I moved the backups to another folder"
      Yes, that would be why.

      "is there a way to edit the file paths a lot uses for the backups?"
      No, but you can move the backup back to where it was and the Installer should detect it.

    Hey having a slight problem with the latest version of a lot, for some reason the installer is detecting the main file as corrupt or not the right size, I've downloaded it a few times trying to get it to work and the same thing pops up, worked on previous versions but not this current build, any idea what I'm doing wrong or is it broken.

    Thanks

      There's some answers in the description. About 2500 out of 27 000 textures in total for ME3. But take into account all the shadowmaps, cubemaps, lightmaps and textures that don't need / can't be upscaled and you're left with a completion rate of around 75% I'd wager. Just look at the screenshots, it looks damn good :).
