Mass Effect - Legendary Edition - EA App - Achievements don't unlock.

Hi, I've recently started my adventure with ME: Legendary Edition. I had absolutely ZERO issues with first version of the game whitch is ME : 1, but when I started playing the second part ( ME: 2) I noticed very strange thing, my EA App just stopped tracking my achievements. This is weird because by now I should have at least 5 achievements unlocked (I hired Garrus, Kasumi, Mordin etc.) Can you guys do something about this issue? In addition to this, when I opened ME 2 for the first time and imported my character from ME 1 I instantly unlocked all achievements in GAME not in APP, maybe that is the reason why EA App is not tracking achievements now. I'm playing Mass Effect Legendary Edition in PC / Xbox Game Pass/ EA App Beta . I added screenshot of achievements below. Thanks in advance for all response

You can get it to work with the EA App. There are justa a couple extra steps. 

EA Offline Mode:

1. Make a copy your uncorrupted GamerProfile file on Documents\BioWare\Mass Effect Legendary Edition\Save\ME2

(if its already corrupted, you'll have to delete this file, game will recreate it, but all achievements will be black, although a few might sync up.)

 

2. Have EA App open and visible.

 

3. Launch ME LE and while it’s launching open the EA App menu and click Go Offline. Then confirm.

 

4. (Optional but recommended) when you are done playing: close the game and backup the GamerProfile file

 

5. you can then put EA App in Online Mode again if you want to play another game. Just repeat steps 2-4 whenever you wish to play ME LE.

 

(This method also works for ME 3 Local_Profile)

 

This works for me and I like it better than messing with my Firewall. However it isn’t perfect. The EA App may eventually error and require you to restart and login. If this happens you should save and exit the game and do so because you won’t unlock any achievements while it’s in that state.

I started ME2 and shortly into it the Soldier (kill 1000 enemies) achievement popped. Then I went back to a new playthrough of ME1 to grab some achievements I had missed, and when I came back to ME2 no achievements were popping. Frown

I tried many methods for GamerProfile and TrilogyGamerProfile files , and finally found that the positive solution is to disconnect the network.

After testing, I found that EA desktop can unlock achievements when the network is disconnected, but these achievements will be synchronized to your account only when the network is restored.

Mass effect Legendary edition achievements no longer work through either steam or EA app. Recently reinstalled Mass Effect legendary edition through steam, contiuned my mass effect 2 playthrough and recruited "The asassin" and "The Justicar" would should give two separate achievements but no I've gotten neither.

@NotSoSlowT Same Issue, though it was just me. Tried uninstalling on steam, uninstalled the EA app and replaying the same section again but still nothing unlocking.

@NotSoSlowT +1 I had to uninstall EA App and reinstall Origin to get achievements to work. I really wish they’d fix it, especially if they’re going to deprecate origin soon.

Mass effect 2 & 3 achievements not working

★★★ Newbie

I bought ME:LE on Steam and i wanted to do a complete trilogy playtrough. After the first game though, i stopped getting achievements. I completed the 2nd game and should have gotten most achievements but didn't get a single one. Now i'm a couple of hours into ME3 and also no achievements are firing.

I've heard that it might work if i uninstall the EA app and install Origin instead, but i am not sure how this will work. Will my savegames be removed? Will i have to play a completely new character for the achievements to fire? Would be a shame to have to redo the games again...

No, your save games will not be removed if you uninstall EA app, but you not even have to uninstall it, you can have Origin and EA app installed at the same system, you just can't run them together.

Not entirely sure about this one, but I assume that the achievements you already unlocked will be unlocked automatically.
No guarantee though.
