1. A lot of people don't like the opening 10 minute intro movie, but there is a way to get rid of it. Go to

C:....mass effect 2BioGameMovies

Change the extension of the following files to .bak:

Opening_End_Seq.bik

Opening_End_SeqFM.bik

Opening_Seq_INT.bik

ProCer_300_FirstFlight.bik

ME2_Opening_SunMid_INT.bak

ProNor_Pod2.bik

ProNorEscapeKaid.bik

ME2_Opening_SunMid_ESN.bik

ME_EAsig_720p_v2_raw.bak

BWLogo.bak

ProNor_Shepard_Rebuilt.bik


This will not get rid of everything, you still have to watch the non-CGI cutscenes and Save Joker. BUt it does cut down quite a bit. If you want those movies back just rename them to .bik again. If you're worried your renaming the wrong thing, you can download a BIK palyer and confirm the files.


2. Changing the first nam of your character does require an external program, but is pretty easy overall.

Download Gib's Save editor here: http://mod.gib.me/masseffect2/saveedit_rev23.zip

Open a save game here: C:Documents and SettingsUSERNAMEMy DocumentsBioWareMass Effect 2Save

Backup whatever save data you want.

Delete all the files except the one you want.

Open it in the editor, go to the Raw tab.

Under squad, click player, and change the first name.

Save the file under something new, since it won't allow you to overwrite for some reason. Make sure it's a save name that makes sense like Save_0002.pcsav, has to follow that format.

Rename the directory the your desired name, and you're done!

3. For those who hate planet scanning and hacking, there is an easy ini file edit floating around. This is just a colaseced editor that you guys have already been playing with but this one seemed pretty idiot proof to me. This again needs an external program but is non-excutable.

http://www.mediafire.com/?yjjzlzzzmyj

This has all kinds of stuff like god mode, extra weapons, infinite ammo etc., but if you just want the money, just use it to get your resources, save, then exit the game and revert to the non-hacked state.

I think that's the same guide I used way back when. It works, just rename the movies to .bik.OLD or something. Pares it from 10 minutes down to ~3 minutes.

just....leave me alone. i gotta think.

Dox the PI converted the Grinch who stole christmas into
The Batarian Who Stole Christmas

Every Human Down in the Milky Way Liked Christmas a lot…
But the Batarian, Who lived just north of The Terminus Systems, Did NOT!
The Batarian hated Christmas! The whole Christmas season!
Now, please don’t ask why. No one quite knows the reason.
It could be their slaving isn't right.
It could be, perhaps, that his jump suits too tight.
But I think that the most likely reason of all,
May have been that he has eyes, two more then normal!

Whatever the reason, his suits or eyes,
He stood there on Christmas Eve, hating the Humans,
Staring down from his ship with a sadistic, Batarian frown,
At the warm lighted windows below on the planet.
For he knew every human down on Earth bellow,
Was busy now, hanging biotic mistletoes.
“And they’re hanging their ez-zo!” he snarled with a sneer,
“Tomorrow is Christmas! It’s practically here!”
Then he growled, with his brown Batarian fingers nervously drumming,
“I MUST find some way to stop Christmas from coming!”

For Tomorrow, he knew, all the Earth girls and boys,
Would wake bright and early. They’d rush for their consoles!
And then! Oh, the noise! Oh, the Noise!
Noise! Noise! Noise!
That’s one thing he hated! The NOISE!
NOISE! NOISE! NOISE!
Then the Humans, young and old, would sit down to a play.
And they’d play! And they’d play! And they’d play!
play! play! play!

They would play M-E-1 and play M-E-2.
Which was something the Batarian couldn't stand in the least!
And THEN They’d do something He liked least of all!
Every Human down on Earth, the tall and the small,
Would stand close together, with Christmas bells ringing.
They’d stand hand-in-hand. And the Humans would start singing!
They’d sing! And they’d sing! And they’d SING!
SING! SING! SING!

And the more the Batarian thought of this Human Christmas Sing,
The more the Batarian thought, “I must stop this whole thing!”
“Why, for Twenty-Three years I’ve put up with it now!”
“I MUST stop this Christmas from coming! But HOW?”
Then he got an idea! An awful idea!
THE BATARIAN GOT A WONDERFUL, AWFUL IDEA!
“I know just what to do!” The Batarian laughed in his throat.
And he made a quick Space Santa Claus hat and a coat.
And he chuckled, and clucked, “What a great Batarian trick!”
“With this coat and this hat, I look just like Saint Nick!”
“All I need is a reindeer…” The Batarian looked around.
But, since reindeer are extinct, there was none to be found.
Did that stop the old Batarian? No! The Batarian simply said,
“If I can’t find a reindeer, I’ll make one instead!”
So he called his Varren, Max. Then he took some red thread,
And he tied a big horn on the top of his head.
THEN He loaded some bags And some old empty sacks,
On a ramshackle sleigh And he hitched up old Max.
Then the Batarian said, “Giddap!” And the sleigh started down,
Toward the homes where the Humans Lay asnooze in their homes.

All their windows were dark. Quiet snow filled the air.
All the Humans were all dreaming sweet dreams without care.
When he came to the first little house on the square.
“This is stop number one,” the old Batarian Claus hissed,
And he climbed to the roof, empty bags in his fist.
Then he slid down the chimney. A rather tight pinch.
But, if Santa could do it, then so could the Batarian.
He got stuck only once, for a moment or two.
Then he stuck his head out of the fireplace flue.
Where the little Human stockings all hung in a row.
“These stockings,” he grinned, “are the first things to go!”
Then he slithered and slunk, with a smile most unpleasant,
Around the whole room, and he took every present!
shotguns! And spaceships! hammerheads! guns!
Mattocks! Locusts! Omni-Gel! And plums!
And he stuffed them in bags. Then the Batarian, very nimbly,
Stuffed all the bags, one by one, up the chimney!
Then he slunk to the icebox. He took the Humans’ feast!
He took the Human-pudding! He took the roast beast!
He cleaned out that icebox as quick as a flash.
Why, that Grinch even took their last can of human-hash!
Then he stuffed all the food up the chimney with glee.
“And NOW!” grinned the Batarian, “I will stuff up the tree!”

And the Batarian grabbed the tree, and he started to shove,
When he heard a small sound like the coo of a dove.
He turned around fast, and he saw a Human!
Little Commander Shepard, who was not more than two.
The Batarian had been caught by this tiny Human,
Who’d got out of bed for a cup of cold water.
He stared at the Batarian and said, “Santy Claus, why,”
“Why are you taking our Christmas tree? WHY?”
But, you know, that old Batarian was so smart and so slick,
He thought up a lie, and he thought it up quick!
“Why, my little tot,” the fake Santy Claus lied,
“There’s a light on this tree that won’t light on one side.”
“So I’m taking it home to my ship, my friend.”
“I’ll fix it up there. Then I’ll bring it back here.”

And his fib fooled the child. Then he patted his head,
And he got him a drink and he sent him to bed.
And when Commander Shepard went to bed with his cup,
The Batarian went to the chimney and stuffed the tree up!
Then the last thing he took Was the log for their fire!
Then he went up the chimney, himself, the old liar.
On their walls he left nothing but hooks and some wire.
And the one speck of food That he left in the house,
Was a crumb that was even too small for a mouse.
Then He did the same thing To the other Humans’ houses
Leaving crumbs Much too small For the other Humans’ mouses!
It was quarter past dawn… All the Humans, still a-bed,
All the Humans, still asnooze When he packed up his sled,
Packed it up with their Cains! The Helmets! The Trophy Bots!
The DLC! And the Amps! The Launchers! The Heat Sinks!
30 million feet up! Up earth atmosphere,
He rode with his load to the ship to dump it!

“PoohPooh to the Humans!” he was humming.
“They’re finding out now that no Christmas is coming!”
“They’re just waking up! I know just what they’ll do!”
“Their mouths will hang open a minute or two,
Then the Humans down on Earth will all cry BooHoo!”
“That’s a noise,” grinned the Batarian, “That I simply MUST hear!”
So he paused. And the Batarian put his hand to his ear.
And he did hear a sound rising over the lands.
It started in low. Then it started to grow.
But the sound wasn’t sad! Why, this sound sounded merry!
It couldn’t be so! But it WAS merry! VERY!
He stared down at Earth! The Batarian popped his eyes!
Then he shook! What he saw was a shocking surprise!
Every Human down on Earth, the tall and the small,
Was singing! Without any presents at all!
He HADN’T stopped Christmas from coming! IT CAME!
Somehow or other, it came just the same!
And the Batarian, with his feet ice-cold in the snow,
Stood puzzling and puzzling: “How could it be so?”
“It came with out guns! It came without flames!”
“It came without mattocks, locusts or cains!”

And he puzzled three hours, till his puzzler was sore.
Then the Batarian thought of something he hadn’t before!
“Maybe Christmas,” he thought, “doesn’t come from a store.”
“Maybe Christmas…perhaps…means a little bit more!”
And what happened then? Well... on Earth they say,
That the Batarians top eyes fell out that day!
And the minute his eyes didn’t feel quite so tight,
He whizzed with his load through the bright morning light,
And he brought back the guns! And the amps for the fights!
And he, HE HIMSELF! The Batarian was carved up and burned with roast beast!
By little Commander Shepard who sold his testes

Bobble Mad an ode to the death of Batarians to the tune of Gilbert and Sullivan
I am the very model of a killer of batarians.
I've shot at many orphans, several teachers and librarians.
I love to use explosives in event of an emergency -
and even when it's not they tend to manufacture urgency.
My genocidal point of view is rarely called contrarian -
I am the very model of a killer of batarians!


The best part of Mass Effect is the romance. Man-on-woman. Man-on-gun. Woman-on-woman.

    Last night, all ME2 DLC was on sale for 200 MS points on Xbox live. I finally picked Lair of the Shadow Broker.

    Not sure if the sale is still on (thought it was just last night). If you don't have these, buy them. Even if you haven't gotten around to buying ME2. All the DLC packs are worth it at that price point.

    (except Cerberus Network was still 1200 points, so you used game buyers are still boned from that, although it is worth it for the stuff you get).

    It says on the wiki about Lair of the Shadow Broker: "It is the first piece of DLC to begin to expand the story in preparation for Mass Effect 3", so that would indicate to me that there's more to come. I haven't heard anything yet, unfortunately.

    Wow, it would be nice if these sales were ever advertised. I log on to Live every single day and I never see any of this stuff. Instead it's links to videos about Kinect with some chick who has a huge rack or it's college football on ESPN. They rarely show sale info. It's usually buried if they do. They just need a permanent link on the welcome portion of the dashboard that has everything on sale. Considering the DLC is listed as 800 spacebucks on xbox.com I would assume that sale is over.

    Anyways.

    Ah, cool, thanks.

    Though I am inclined to believe that there's a diminishing return on the investment, the longer time passes after the release of the original product.

    So I'm just hoping it isn't that.

    Why are you playing ME2 on the Civilization 5 box?

    Cause the turn based version is superior in every single conceivable way?

    Wait, ME2 is turn-based on the PC?!? Like Dragon Age? Cause i liked Dragon Age on the PC.

    No, but you called it the Civ 5 box. Hence my joke.

    It still holds true though that the PC version is the best version by a large margin.

    How? Just curious, I assumed they were identical aside from save game exchanging and face codes.

    It's....it's the PC version. It has KB+M controls, faster loading times, better graphics and mod-capabilities.

    Everytime there's a new thread and I subscribe to it, I wonder just how horrifying it would be to let it send me email notifications for new posts. Then I wonder if Gmail could filter those messages if the ammo discussion was happening again.

    If anyone hasn't done a PC playthrough of ME2 with Legion hacked into your game from the very start, do it. There's so much unused dialogue in the missions he normally isn't available to take on. Notably, Tali's recruitment.

    God damnit, Mass Effect. You screwed up my import game.

    Apparently, something got messed up with the flags r something on importing, and now I arrived on Illium and the game seems to think I went Renegade on Conrad Verner and shoved a gun on his face, and he's gone all stupid and nasty and the game is slapping me on how it's my fault despite the fact that I treated him well every time. Blah.

    Not for me. Conrad doesn't even appear in my game and I can't do that quest or get that discount :( Kinda sucks.

    But... but... but...

    I got nothing.

    The interface seemed to be for a console controller, so I went with that. I am sure load times are comparable to the installed 360 version and the PC.

    Mod capabilities. You got me there. I gotta admit that I have seen a couple mods I want to play.

    I bet future ME2 DLC is going to be on the PS3 first, won't it. I really hope not, but I bet it will. Just like the DLC for Fallout New Vegas being 360 first. I want that damned DLC.

    The load times really aren't comparable for installed 360 version and PC.

    PC just blows them out of the water.

    At least from when I played it on my friend's 360.

    Although load times obviously vary from PC to PC and don't from Xbox to Xbox so you at least know what you're likely to get with the 360.

    So I finally played the Kasumi DLC yesterday and completed it around 2 a.m.

    My initial thoughts are that the content itself is rather short. And I pretty much squeezed out the exploration and conversations until there was nothing left before I proceeded to the next step. One one hand the amount of content is rather small, but on the other hand you
    do get an extra member throughout the game should you want to pursue that route from the beginning.
