I tried automatically updating my drivers but that didn't work. I've extracted the DxDiag perhaps you guys can tell me what's wrong? I really want to get back into this game again.

  • Make sure Origin is closed.
  • Go to your "C:\Users\>Your username>\Documents\BioWare\Mass Effect" = "Documents\BioWare\Mass Effect" folder and move the "Config" folder to your desktop. > Test.

Holger there you were again to pull my buns out of the fire.

 

Worked like a charm. The game is restored. Now it's just a matter of reloading all of those texture mods all over again. ARGGGGH!
