Introduction

FemShep & Jack Romance Mod (FJRM)
 is a mod for Mass Effect 3 that allows FemShep players to romance Jack in ME3. Without this mod, Jack's romance is restricted to Male Shepard. Due to this gender restriction, no dialogue was ever recorded for FemShep during these romance scenes. In addition, many animations were left buggy or unfinished. This mod solves these problems and allows for a fully functional and fully voiced FemShep & Jack romance story in Mass Effect 3. Below is a more detailed list of what this mod does.

Important Reminder: 
Users will need to have romanced Jack in ME2 to be able to continue her romance in ME3. 
This is how romances have always worked in Mass Effect. 
This means that before you can use this mod, you will need to install FJRM for ME2, romance her in that game, and then import your ME2 save file into ME3. Then you can use this mod to continue her romance story throughout ME3. Alternatively, you can use Gibbed Save Editor to make the game think you romanced Jack in ME2.

Mod Changes
1. Remove gender blocks so FemShep can choose romance dialogue
2. Restore unused FemShep romance audio where possible
3. Replace unrecorded FemShep dialogue with re-purposed FemShep audio from other areas of the game
4. Ensure adequate lip-sync for new dialogue
5. Fix broken and unfinished animations during romance scenes between FemShep and Jack
6. Create compatibility patches for certain mods

Please thoroughly read the Installation section before downloading and installing this mod.

Attention: 
You must disable this mod prior to playing as MaleShep
This Mod will cause various dialogue issues for MaleShep players.

I recommend only having this mod enabled when playing FemShep and actively romancing Jack. 
This is the best way to avoid bugs.
