Mass Effect-DETONATiON

A long anticipated game hits the scene, Mass Effect pre’d by grp. DETONATiON, i guess the game will hit like a bomb… “haha :| ” I cant play it since, my machine is prolly too bad, but all you who can, have fun :)


Mass.Effect-DETONATiON got nuked saving.stops.working.after.a.while



One of the RLSLOG users seems to have found a proper way to play this game:

So…my turn to stem on the podium? Well..

ME: 0_W_N_E_D!

I won’t more than:
This is a .CT table, meant to be opened with Cheat Engine (google for it, it’s a freeware anyway)
-launch Cheat engine (CE in short)
-open MassEffect.CT with cheat engine
-start game (russian or reloaded proper with savegames dunno size=48 956 922 bytes)
-at the main menu, alt tab to CE
-in CE open your game (corner left icon with a computer)
-select all lines in the bottom pane
-press space (all tick boxes near “no description” should be ticked)
-re-alt tab to mass fx
-wait a loooooooot (like the loading, but you see your desktop)
-load savegame

Works for me, i don’t provide technical support.


Developer BioWare has always been at the forefront of progressive storytelling in games, so it’s no surprise that Mass Effect’s story is one of its best yet. It’s got a unique take on the chase-the-bad-guy-across-the-universe plot, and just when you think you’ve got everything figured out, the game throws you yet another surprise. BioWare has created a politically charged universe with an exhaustive backstory and filled it with a bunch of interesting, multifaceted characters. Combined with an exciting and unique combat mechanic, it makes for a fun and absorbing experience that you’ll want to see through to the end, just to see how everything turns out–even if the game isn’t perfect by any means. In fact, it’s surprising that so many small annoyances and glitches made their way into a game of such general high quality. Still, most players will be able to look past them and enjoy Mass Effect for what it is: A terrific role-playing game with great production values and fun, exciting action.

As in most role-playing games of this nature, you begin by customizing an avatar. You play as Commander Shepard, potential savior of the galaxy, but there’s plenty of room to mold him or her as you see fit. Physical customization isn’t as deep as you’ll find in something like last year’s Oblivion, but the system is relatively robust, letting you choose from a variety of preset features, and even letting you round everything off with a scar. Shouldn’t every badass commander have one? Of course, you’ll also choose a class. In this case, you’ve got six to choose from, each with various strengths in combat, tech, and biotics (Mass Effect’s sci-fi equivalent of magic). More impressively, you will select a few autobiographical tidbits–and these choices aren’t just for show. Through the course of the game, characters will refer to your past, and your resulting dialogue options will allow you to react to their comments with various degrees of humility, wistfulness, and scorn.

    Err. My last message wasn’t posted. Anyway, I believe this is a great game, I will surely try this one. But the draconian schemes EA put up against us has soured me. I will surely download this one. So they decided only 3 installs was enough for everyone (640k anyone?), well this is too nazi too me, so thanks The Scene and P2P. Hail brothers!

    This is a port of an Xbox360 game… ports to PC almost always turn out bad and the game was crap enough that my mate who loves rpgs, traded it in on a an other game.

    Looks like they’ve left the xbox graphics as well…

  25. Reardon
    May 29th, 2008 | 23:27

    The 360 graphics were astounding, amongst the best on the machine. This is one huge and involving game too.

  26. LR4004
    May 29th, 2008 | 23:27

    @26: Better inform yourself before you post something like that. Yes they left the XBox360 graphics which is excellent, but you’re wrong with everything else. :P

    May 29th, 2008 | 23:28

    I’m still waiting for a good RPG. There’s been nothing really for a few years. All these Oblivions, Mass Effects etc have nothing RPGish about them apart from stats. Crappy dialogue, terrible storylines, dumbed down gameplay.

  28. Yep
    May 29th, 2008 | 23:28

  33. gavian
    May 29th, 2008 | 23:35

    Okay… the Rapidshare links Shephard posted contain some version of ME as far as I’m able to tell, but unless I’m missing, something, it’s NOT the Detonation release. And it’s supposed to be 7.something gigs, not 13x 100 MB archives as well.

    Wtf rlslog is just posting crap these days.

    Look at the graphics on this thing! Butt ugly. The first screeny looks like its from Star Wars: Tie Fighter. That’s like 15 years old!

    And wtf at the second screen? Somebody is still developing the Quake 3 engine?

    Come on guys, let’s pick up the pace. Stop with these Skidrow-level releases.

    May 29th, 2008 | 23:48

    @55 mr.Floppy: Before the host change I emailed Martin about it and he fixed it, however after the change it’s back to how it was. I was going to wait a little while before emailing again to give him time to complete the site transfer. I can understand your frustration as I despise IE too and am an Opera user. I’m sure it will all be resolved in the not too distant future.

    Till then just got to put up with IE (but only for getting the links) I view the rest of the site using Opera.

    There will NEVER BE a working crack downloadable at because they do not deliver files that circumvent online activation.

    It seeems that we have to wait untill there is a cracked installer, a procedure that let it install without activation or (like i do) wait for the official release in europe and buy it…

    Grafics!!!every game have that,on high settings this locks great.

    Should be more difficult its to easy to play,to simple.

    Story may be the best on the game.

    Its great but not good enough to be “The RPG”.

    This is my Favorite Console game of all time, the storyline is comparable to a great movie. My Previous favorite console game of all time was Assassins Creed, which beat out Ocarina of Time, so a big gap there.

    The port of the Xbox 360 of Assassins Creed was excellent, with more missions, etc.

    The changes they have made to this game should make it an excellent port also.

    This game is worth the price tag.

    @Bored Moose

    On page one shepherd posted some rs-links from a russian site.
    Comment was deleted.

    It contains installer (working), four keys (working for installation) but no crack.
    Installation is fine, but no start up without cracked-exe.

    The installation itself is not bioshock-like, files seem to be completely installed, but a EA-Dialogue demands a registration code.

    A crack is needed to prevent this dialogue…

    Thing was this, there were two Detonation versions floating around, 7.18 and 7.19gb ones, both incompatibile with eachother. Also, the Rapidshare’s do NOT work. The first oen is just the retail, the oen shepard posted, and the second one that Jofo did which was repeated over and over had corrupted and missing files. I dident check the megaupload ones but by now, the correct 7.19 version should already be on public/private trackers worldwide so just get it from there.

  212. Topper Harley

    May 30th, 2008 | 03:51

    Just to confirm that the links at #94 Shephard are indeed corrupt. Many people have pointed out that the file me-dtn.r00 does not work, likewise I have the same problem. Further more, I managed to aquire a working version of the r00 file but it still wont unpack as all the other files in the archive are also corrupt.

    Props to Shepard for trying to bring it to us all, I’m sure it’s not your fault.

    For everyone hoping to get the archive working with a replacment r00 file, might as well forget it and download a different version altogether.

    The rapidshare links in post n. 176 aren’t corrupted. It’s just a 74-part repack of the 78-part Detonation release, but none of the rars are corrupt. After downloading two faulty versions I got this one and I unpacked and mounted no problem.

    May 30th, 2008 | 08:57

    This crack is not working. Works up to the part where you gain control of the normandy/ship and have to access the Galaxy Map there the map wont show up. I personally just reinstalled XP cause it wasnt working on 64 bit vista and the first thing I did after installing sound and latest NVIDIA WHQL drivers was install this and I get the exact same issue. NEED PROPER PROPER!!!

    For Zorvan – use Internet Download Manager (IDM) – easy and effective – MassEffective :-)

    Just downloaded the entire rld rls just to get the crack and while I was initially excited because the size was much larger thinking it would be different and work turned out to not. I tried again and no go. Maybe, maybe its my save file but I really doubt that and the only other save file I have was 2 hours earlier and have to redo those 2 hours to get to this part again. Can someone please collaborate or tell me if you have gotten past the part where you access the Galaxy Map for the first time.

    Avast detects a trojan virus in the keygen.

    The crack does not work, the game does not even boot, it gives an error.

    I uninstalled this POS and deleted it from my CPU.

    Can’t seem to get it to work.
    Vista 64bit SP1
    I used both cracks, the Detonation and RLD. Det = 46MB and RLD = 7 MB
    As soon as I open the exe I get a ‘Mass Effect stopped working’ error. And yes it’s in the right dir.

    It does not make a link in the start up

    Any way I put the cracked EXE in to the
    Binaries folder and ran it from there and
    The game works I must have played it for
    An hour or so any way to get the game to
    Work you have to run the cracked EXE
    From the binaries folder ware you put it

    OK never mind my post… found a source for the reloaded crack…
    let’s see if it works and doesn’t crash at the star map…

  257. John
    May 30th, 2008 | 14:19

    They both crash at the galaxy map, unfortunately your wasting your time..

  258. Alucard
    May 30th, 2008 | 14:20

    So what is the true working version with a working crack? And I suppose it’s the us version, is there an european version out yet?

  259. John
    May 30th, 2008 | 14:23

    I tried both RELOADED and DETONATiON cracks, once you hit a specific point in the game it will f*ck up and you will be stuck.. also I noticed that you can’t save the game around that point as well.

  260. iMiKE
    May 30th, 2008 | 15:03

    Please, upload RELOADED CRACK ONLY to some host!
    It would be useful

  261. Sanity
    May 30th, 2008 | 15:08

    Yeah, confirmed what John is saying. Both cracks break the galaxy map, and you can’t safe after you enter Citadel

  262. chasm
    May 30th, 2008 | 15:08

    Well, since the Reloaded one also doesn’t seem to work, it wouldn’t be of any use…

    I hope a working crack will be released soon… I’m itching to play this and in Europe you can’t buy it yet….

    Let’s hope Vitality or some other group will step in…

  263. valkryst
    May 30th, 2008 | 15:08

    So is it the cracks fault the galaxy map is having a fit, or corrupted/missing game files or something, similar too the Assassins Creed debacle ?

  264. oblivionrpg
    May 30th, 2008 | 15:09

    Guys, if you want a CRack then go to gamecopyworld… there it|s 100%….

  265. Mess Effect
    May 30th, 2008 | 15:21

    Yup, gamecopyworld has both cracks but that doesn’t really help all that much since they both don’t work.

  266. Vladimir
    May 30th, 2008 | 15:28

    Hi there! On Russian forum found info that says – problem with both cracks!!! We’ll have to wait for another one…

    All Rapidshare Links are dead…

  268. Sanity
    May 30th, 2008 | 15:46


    It’s confirmed. It’s the crack that’s causing the problems with saving and the galaxymap. I checked some with some friends, they can use the galaxy map and save in Citadel, using the original game.

    When the crack is installed, you can’t safe in Citadel, or use the galaxy map.

    Time to wait for a crackfix I guess.

  269. Sanity
    May 30th, 2008 | 15:48

    It’s also been officially nuked for the bad crack. Both of them

    May 30th, 2008 | 15:57

    Those who got the detonation links with the mass password, you can use a piratebay torrent to continue, just extract the rar files that you already got and use them to continue the torrent.

  275. Leady
    May 30th, 2008 | 17:41


    As OP said, many files in the megaupload links are corrupted so don’t download them. I can confirm post #217 is corrupted. Even if you have downloaded them all, you still won’t get a working iso.

    Hope someone will give good megaupload links soon.

  276. dAVID

  277. loco
    May 30th, 2008 | 17:47

    just relax. it is official:
    with both Detonation and Reloaded u can play only till some point, after that -> crash
    something similar like with Assassins Creed :(

  278. Sanity
    May 30th, 2008 | 17:51

    Well, similar to AC in practice, but this time it’s not caused by missing files, but by a bad crack, or maybe even copy protection.

  279. excoz
    May 30th, 2008 | 17:56


    i hope so, i don’t wanna dl 8 gb again.
    please post if there are better cracks out there.

  280. Valygar
    May 30th, 2008 | 17:57

    So we just need to wait, I guess reloaded will make a new crack in a few days (or even today, who knows).

    For the people who downloaded the files with the “mass” password from rapidshare, the links from %199 response work and are interchangeable; also they seem to be OK.

  281. loco
    May 30th, 2008 | 18:00

    who knows!? they failed many times, i would compare installed files with D2D version, if i had it…

  282. Sanity
    May 30th, 2008 | 18:07

    Well, I checked with a friend, who said that everything worked on the d2d version, but stalling the crack broke the galaxy map. That’s all I know.

    It also looks like a render error, not a missing file.

    So nothing’s wrong with the release of the files, it’s just the crack that’s fcuking it all up… can anyone confirm that, don’t really feel like downloading another release. :(

  287. Sanity
    May 30th, 2008 | 19:32

    Fourth time:
    Yes, it’s confirmed. The crack is screwed up. Retail versions with the crack break, retail without the crack works.

    2. So, regardless of what version I’m getting, the cracks are all messed up?

    When you play casino game, sometimes, the game freezes, exactly like when we launch galaxy map.

  303. Sanity
    May 30th, 2008 | 21:24

    you can’t explore a planet. It’s impossible to zoom to planet level on the galaxy map. You can go to other systems with the “Smash-rmb” technique, but you can’t go down to the planet.

    We’ll have to wait for a crackfix, or a proper-proper.

    No, that doesn’t work. That is caused by crappy programing, our problem is either caused by the crack, or some copy-protection scheme.

    it don’t matter,even if you play just with autosave, (which i did), u’ll eventually have to take the ship out, and you can’t.

    here is the way all russians play ) and it really works

    1) go to MY DOCUMENTS and find folder Mass effect -> Config -> file BIOInput
    2) in that file find the line with the word “console” and write new line ConsoleKey=Tilde
    here is how it suppose to look like

    3) Here is a list of the planets u gonna type in console in game :
    Noveria – AT BIOA_ICE00
    Feros – AT BIOA_WAR00
    Virmire – AT BIOA_JUG00
    Caleston – AT BIOA_LAV00
    Ilos – AT BIOA_LOS00
    Oculon – AT BIOA_STA00
    4) start the game, go to your ship, press ~ , and write planet code on which u would like to fly ;)
    5) then wait for a loading screen, well u r on your ship again, but only right next to the planet u typed in console

    have fun ;)

    Console workaround will probably break something in game and i highly doubt that it will let you save your game…

  355. resonance
    May 31st, 2008 | 16:46

    And you still can’t LAND with that workaround, or I haven’t been able to. So it’s pointless.

  356. Hollah
    May 31st, 2008 | 16:52

    So, my problem in detail:

    When i got spectre, i have to go to the dock… little conversation with the embassedor and captain, then i can go into the normandy…the map opens up when i use Space and righ mouse button… i can choose a new location… then a short sequence come up … my ship flies towards the selected location or so… then i come back into the mapthingy… and nothing happens… the game hangs up… is that the normal prob everyone got?

    Sorry for double post but this is another idea so..

    A fix to pass Galaxy Map, sort of.

    Go to : C:\Documents and Settings\your_user_name_here\My Documents\BioWare\Mass Effect\Config (this is for Windows XP, dunno the path for Vista happy).

    Search for a file named : BIOInput.ini, search for a line called [Engine.Console], add the following lines:


    This enables the console.

    In order to jump to another planet you can type : AT BIOA_WAR00 – This is for Feros.
    AT BIOA_ICE00 – This is Novaria

    I took the names of those files from BioWare/Mass Effect/BioGame/CookedPC/Maps. I don’t know the names of those planets so it’s just a matter of luck.

    I’m glad if I helped with smth. Will be back with a solution to save too, after I manage to understand what those geeks are talking on Mass Effect official forums.

  360. resonance
    May 31st, 2008 | 17:37

    Claude, can you post a link to the thread on the official forums? Maybe we can figure out how to land on planets from the console. Probably easier just to wait for a crackfix/proper.proper though.

    I already posted how you can land on planets from the console. Read my previous post.

    About the save game issue, I read about it on their forums, link here:

    I’m not a native English speaker so it’s somehow hard for me to understand technical terms.

  363. Szioul
    May 31st, 2008 | 17:58

    Actually the console commands only take you to the orbit of the planet. You still need to use the galaxy map to actually land.

  364. Pete
    May 31st, 2008 | 18:00

    @ClaudeFTW: That doesn’t help here because the help in the forum thread you linked only refers to a specific situation where you map the my documents path of a vista installation not to a folder as usual but to a harddrive, as an example D:\

    Can you save at Feros?Even if you can i think you will have problems with game; console commands will probably break something in game such as quests or party members…

    May 31st, 2008 | 18:11

    May 31st, 2008 | 20:16

    after you use the console code…and arrive at the desired planet, go to the ” EXIT NORMANDY” screen. there you’ll be choosing your team, and you’ll land automatically. no need for a galaxy map to land.

  379. Tudels
    May 31st, 2008 | 20:23


    which “Exit Normandy” screen ?


  380. FuriousRage

    Where you exit the ship.

  382. Hollah

    Just walk out of the ship, the same way you walked in, but in reverse.

  384. minime

    it is a room in your ship. the room you got depressurised when you first entered the ship.

  385. AI
    May 31st, 2008 | 20:33

    Ok, so apparently the no map thing is a simple bug in the crack, because I can continue playing the game through the console map commands, save works and everything, shouldnt be too long before a new crack arrives.

  386. minime
    May 31st, 2008 | 20:34

    the weird thing, i can quick save, but not all the time. even when i’m not in battle.

    May 31st, 2008 | 20:39

    yes, console map command give you the main planets, but there’s many other land to explore, it’s a not a good solution to play the game half-way :

  388. Hollah

  391. Gnat
    May 31st, 2008 | 21:16

    Anyone have any idea about fixing saves? It allows you to save sometimes, but sometimes it doesn’t, even when out of battle. Such as the Citadel… and forced auto saves don’t seem to come too often.

    In my case I’m on Noveria at Peak15, and haven’t been able to save anywhere around Peak15, only about 5 minutes before it, making it quite the pain in the ass if I die.

  392. Xeneonic
    May 31st, 2008 | 21:20

    If it’s any help I can put up a bit of text here that shows how you can auto-save more often (up to each minute).

    I don’t know of an other workaround other than that though.

    May 31st, 2008 | 22:03

    Please, definitely need help with that too! I just got to a certain part in Noveria or w/e, the snow level, once inside the compound, I probably went through 30 minutes of playing and not being able to save once, no auto save either, I refuse to play if I cannot save at least a couple times during that sequence, you go through many battles and cannot save, very very annoying.

  397. joey
    May 31st, 2008 | 22:05

    The console works for the planets, i would guess you can somehow save with the console too. Haven’t found the right command yet though. Both quicksave and autosave won’t work.

    I think the real problem is you can’t go to any uncharted worlds. Still gotta have that new crackfix..

    If the crack exe says you game has been compromised you just have to use the auto-launch, that one will work.

    I got this other bug now, at one point the elevator door won’t close. Since i couldn’t save i have to do most of the fighting i did on Novaria all over again. Oh well, guess i should have bought the game then. I hope i can get further next time, untill a new autosave. The game is thankfully fun enough to do that over again.

  398. Hammi
    May 31st, 2008 | 22:09

    Actually you can go to uncharted worlds.

    For example try AT BIOA_UNC10
    Full list of uncharted worlds is in the
    Program Files\Mass Effect\BioGame\CookedPC\Maps\UNC

    If anyone finds the uncharted world with the Asari party member on it, please post!

    1. I deleted the Bioware folder from My Computer
    2. I started new game, but this time I used the default character, didn’t even change the name.
    3. Then I just started playing and it seems to be working, 10 hours into the game and saving works, and even the galaxy map works.
    Tried with both Detonation and Relaoded cracks and both works.

    May 31st, 2008 | 23:55

    I’ve tried the KitKats way and it works for me. I’ve used the default character, not changing name, went very quickly through the first part of the game. I could quicksave whenever I wanted, and there’s no galaxy problem (previously I’ve customized my own hero – a woman though :) seems like a customization is a problem. Anyway now I’m happy and I can play the game!!!! One thing more, I didn’t accept Wrax as a part of my team (I didn’t take him at the beggining, he was by the elevator to normandy then, still I didn’t accept him to join my team. Could that be any of reasons of the game working? Think not.

    KITKATS way DOES work, you have to completely delete your Bioware folder in My Documents, im not sure if deleting the folder has more to do with it, or starting with the default character, or it takes both, but I do know that deleting the folder, and starting with the default, does work.

    Well bad news, I quit out of the game, restarted it (got the “game has been compromised” message) got it going anyways, map glitch again, where just going to have to wait for a proper crack, no way around it at this point.

  440. Count Spatula
    June 1st, 2008 | 00:57

    I did what kitkat said about restarting the game with default char and moving my original custom char. I got slightly further with the autosaves but after I became a spectre save no longer worked. Also the galaxy map does not work

  441. Hollah
    June 1st, 2008 | 01:04

    OK, tried that delete-thingy of the bioware-folder… now I beam me right at the beginnig of the gam straight to another plant… and wow… now I dont just wake up in ront of the map in the ship… there’s an intro when the ship is coming near the plante I wanna land on… it works! played it now for almoust an hour and no crashes there… but autosave doesnt recognize somehow ._.

  442. Paroxysm
    June 1st, 2008 | 01:08

    What Kitkat says works until you exit the game and enter it again.

    I removed the Folder named ‘BioWare’ in ‘My Documents’ then started the game with a new character (Default, though I don’t think it matters).

    I was able to auto save at any point and access the galaxy map and reach any planet, etc, etc. But after I exited the game and re-entered it I got that ‘game has been compromised’ message ya’ll are talking about and it all the problems pop up again.

  443. medive
    June 1st, 2008 | 01:12

    I started with new char[John Shep.] and i could save the game alltime[like in the City, u cant save the game with custom char].

    About the Map Problem, u will have this with pre-made and custom char.

  444. Qiuness

    we should find what is modified since we can manualy unzip part of the game from the cd

    if we can find the good rar to extract maybe we’ll find the files that need to be replaced at each start of the game

  446. punpun
    June 1st, 2008 | 01:31

    “Game is compromised” appears because nInvalidBuild gets set to 1 in BIOEngine.ini. Setting it to 0 makes the message disappear if you start again. However, the game will set nInvalidBuild to 1 again. Not sure why, but I suspect not being able to save games is connected somehow.

  447. Xio

    yes but for scene grps its a rat race for scoring points – who releases it first (and hopefully working), on the other hand it’s hard to blame them since they probably didn’t know that after a few hours of gameplay the game fuxx up – so just sit tight and wait for proper.proper ;)

    I find it hilarious that Reloaded whined about DETONATiON stole their crack, release a proper one, and it turns out both are crap.

    If DET releases a crack that works faster then Reloaded, il give them all the props for this release ;) If they dont, we know they havent got the skill to have done this on their own anyways.

  459. Bored Moose
    June 1st, 2008 | 02:40

    I think the reason it breaks is because of the BIOEngine.ini getting modified and I want to prevent any chance of that happening from the get go.

  460. Cosmo
    June 1st, 2008 | 02:44

    Bored Moose/480:

    The invalid thing is just a flag to popup the window, modifying it to 0 and leaving it there does change anything besides the nagging screen poping up.

    Also, if you were to do a fresh install, then most likely i think you chould play the whole game aslong as you do NOT restart it. That seems to be the thing that brakes it.

  461. 213
    June 1st, 2008 | 02:48

    that implies that the whole save system is corrupt
    if so when the proper crack pops up then maybe our saved files wont work with the game???
    are my assumptions wrong???

  462. Bored Moose
    June 1st, 2008 | 02:49

    Yeah I know guys, I rly don’t know how they tested it but obviously not thoroughly enough. I have had a couple of solid rlses from them in the past. but all I was saying is maybe “another group” may have grabbed their rls and garnered some info from Reloaded cracks and added the extra polish to it if u know what I mean.

  463. Bored Moose
    June 1st, 2008 | 02:51

    @ 482 well then what file gets modified after restarting the game?

    we find that we may have a workaround =)

  464. howe
    June 1st, 2008 | 02:57

    still no confirmation on whether or not it only breaks once you restart the game……

  465. AI
    June 1st, 2008 | 02:58

    Exactly, we need to find out what changes after the restart, cause if you start on a fresh profile, I guess it has to be default character? Anyways, do that and delete the bio folder it works, until you restart of coarse.

  466. AI
    June 1st, 2008 | 02:59

    Restarting DOES cause it to break.

  467. Bored Moose

    If U delete the bioware folder and start over it’s ok again right? until u restart of course.

  468. AI

    Yes, I dont think it has to do with having the default character like once thought. Still not sure though.

  469. Bored Moose
    June 1st, 2008 | 03:10

    OK My point was that the file thats breaking the game is stored in that folder so we know where to look for other files that may have changed if it is one file thats causing the map to break.

    If restarting the game simply corrupts all the save files up till then, then we are screwed

  470. Bored Moose
    June 1st, 2008 | 03:13

    Another thing is How are the files been modded unless part of the DRM is still calling home?

    I mean the crack allows the game to start in the first place right? so it really shouldn’t be a problem.

  471. Vanon
    June 1st, 2008 | 03:15

    maybe the problem is the online autentication, the first time you play the game it connects to the internet and checks if it’s everything allright but using the crack this doesn’t happens so the game doesn’t get autenticated (maybe the online check activates something in a config file or something like that. i don’t think that a simple crack would be enough…..the game checks online the cd-key, how can we simulate that? maybe with the check is created a serial code used to autenticate the game

  472. howe
    June 1st, 2008 | 03:15

    yeah that’s what i was asking. whether or not default char has anythign to do withit, or the breaking has all to do with restarting the game. i could live without restarting the game. my CPU can handle it. until someone releases a new crack anyway..

  473. AI
    June 1st, 2008 | 03:21

    To be honest, even if you delete the config files in the bio folder it still wont load the map, it probably corrupts the saved files, good luck with that.

  474. Bored Moose
    June 1st, 2008 | 03:22

    Vanon, perhaps you’re right but I cant see how U can still access all the content before restarting,

    what you’re saying is basically the crack act’s like a one time only activation.

  475. howe
    June 1st, 2008 | 03:27

    so upon first install, can we make custom character and have it run without glitches until restart?

  476. Cosmo
    June 1st, 2008 | 03:30

    I doubt they’d go to that extreme of a measure to prevent piracy. For example, say i get the game, crack dosent work, i buy the new game, i whould want to be able to use my “cracked”-time save game files.

    The worst i saw related to game protection in this matter was in Darkstar One, where a detected crack whould make prices MASSIVE in the stations, making the game almost unplayable.

    Explanation for you who can’t exit the Normandy after using the console command:

    If you managed to get your ship into orbit before using the command (by spam right clicking whe opening the galaxy map), the ship will stay in orbit when using the console to move your ship.

    In other words, make sure you don’t go any further after just entering your ship after the citadel, so that you can see the door switch being active at the ship exit- when you type in your console command for WAR00 or whatever.

    Uh, I’ve been playing past the citadel for a while now, using the console to go around.

    If you haven’t spammed the galaxy map in your ship yet, then it’ll work. Everyone should have an autosave from before you become captain anyway.

    When you type in the console command, you’ll automatically be taken to the squad selection screen and leave the ship.

    Better still, every time you land on a planet, you save, and every time you return to normandy, you save. Also, quicksaving worked like it should on both planets I’ve been on since the citadel.

    Now I’m trying to figure out the name of planet Therum’s console command, for the main story.

  487. Xeneonic
    June 1st, 2008 | 04:48

    Before you read the line below, this DOESN’T WORK when you already can’t save:

    I know the console code to save:

    savegame 05

    05 is just an example, it can be anything ranging from 01 to 999 (00 is an autosave) as said above, this doesn’t work if you already can’t save. Loading the game works the same, just change “save” to “load”.

    There’s some additional response in the console given when you can’t save:

    Unable to save 01 on device Id 1

    This could be a hint, saying that the game would simply “disconnect” the device to save, it’s just an XBox feature where there’s actually a physical hard disk present that can be removed. They were smart enough to “Emulate” it and make the game think it’s removed.

    So if the theory above is correct, you need to “only” make sure it can’t emulate it to make the game think it’s not there.

  488. Xeneonic
    June 1st, 2008 | 04:51

    I did a quick check and look what I found in the engine.ini:

    ParanoidDeviceLostChecking=1 <<< This could be it.

    I’m going to try and change it, I’ll let you know if it works. If it does, it’s required that you make the file “Read-only” so it can’t change it.

    is it the baseengine.ini?

  494. Xeneonic
    June 1st, 2008 | 05:04

    I will copy/paste the part I just typed on the demonoid version of this release:

    I got a permanent fix for your savegame issues, the only way you WON’T be able to save is when you’re in combat, so just kill every mob on your radar, holster your weapon and you can save, this includes quicksave and manual save:

    Go to your \documents and settings\%username%\My Documents\Mass Effect\Config file. Open BioEngine.ini:

    ParanoidDeviceLostChecking=1 <<<Change this to 0

    Make sure the .ini is READONLY (So the game can’t switch it back to 1 again) and you can save all you want. Note that you can’t make permanent changes to your settings such as resolution and quality, if you want to do that, remove the readonly part of the ini, change it, and add the readonly part again.

  495. Alex
    June 1st, 2008 | 05:05

    Could you verify that you edited the right ini and made it read-only? I’m positive it worked, since I had a lot of saves before which, when loaded, couldn’t save anymore, I tried 15 different saves, and now they can all load again.

    This can’t possibly be coincidence right?

    By the way; I made sure the InvalidBuild was set to 0 as well to get rid of the annoying message that pops up for some users.

    Oh and
    There also seems to be a different error with users that have their default documents set on another drive, but that’s an entire different problem, something about manually creating \documents\Mass Effect\ on that drive you set the default documents to.

    My solution should work for people who didn’t change their location of their \documents\ (Could vary slightly due to Win XP/Vista)

    How I fixed the save problem is make sure that your main “My Documents” folder is on the same drive (directory) as your game installation. If not, simply (if your on XP) go to start<My Documents<right click<properties<Target and make sure that its on the same partition (or drive) as your game installation, if not, simply change the letter to whatever the game installation is on the target line.

    That’s exactly how I traced my first solution, which eventually worked for me. It’s disappointing to see it doesn’t work for you though.

    I’ll copy paste here on the info I gained from that message Tom:

    Unable to save 01 on device Id 1

    This could be a hint, saying that the game would simply “disconnect” the device to save, it’s just an XBox feature where there’s actually a physical hard disk present that can be removed. They were smart enough to “Emulate” it and make the game think it’s removed.

    So if the theory above is correct, you need to “only” make sure it can’t emulate it to make the game think it’s not there.

    N 367 ppl. plz read It does work. DO it and just go to the exit from the ship by the Joker. Pick ur crew and ur done. It works. For restart + save stand by.

    here is the way all russians play ) and it really works

    1) go to MY DOCUMENTS and find folder Mass effect -> Config -> file BIOInput
    2) in that file find the line with the word “console” and write new line ConsoleKey=Tilde
    here is how it suppose to look like

    3) Here is a list of the planets u gonna type in console in game :
    Noveria – AT BIOA_ICE00
    Feros – AT BIOA_WAR00
    Virmire – AT BIOA_JUG00
    Caleston – AT BIOA_LAV00
    Ilos – AT BIOA_LOS00
    Oculon – AT BIOA_STA00
    4) start the game, go to your ship, press ~ , and write planet code on which u would like to fly ;)
    5) then wait for a loading screen, well u r on your ship again, but only right next to the planet u typed in console

    have fun ;)

    I can confirm that this still doesn’t solve the Galaxy map for me, but I can however, save all the time now, already on 2 hours and can save whenever I want, including quicksaves :| It’s irritating me that it doesn’t work for you guys and it does for me, makes no sense, but you could still try my >>555 option.

    555 No go. Finished fight autosave 10 sec prior. Holster save – no go. Restart + ini solution = no go.

    The developers are working hard on make sure that the pirate versions go crashed.
    All this effort is really necessary to save 40 bucks?

    Alex> You might want to try loading a proper save instead of autosave, ie. when you still could save the game.

    to 560 – yes. to 561 with great regret 8h into the game i never saved … never tryed normal or quick save =( So all i had was autosaves when i stumbled on a situation when i HAD to save.

    I remember fiddling the Editor.ini a long time ago (The one located in documents)

    And I might have changed something, this strikes awefully familiar:

    ;ConnectionString=DRIVER={SQL Server};SERVER=MSSQL1;UID=;PWD=;APP=Mass Effect;DATABASE=bw_sfx_appreg2
    ;Group=UnrealEd Admin

    I’m wondering if I ADDED the ; in front of ConnectionString like shown above, this in conjunction with my other fix might work. If it already was like this you can discard this reply :/

  544. Xeneonic
    June 1st, 2008 | 06:03

    Oh and, just like above, but absolutely sure this time, deleted something in the engine.ini, again, used together with the solution earlier might work.

    I remember I tried to use this at first and only worked for a short while, but now with the other one we might have a permanent solution. Keep your fingers crossed though:

    Package=OnlineSubsystemLive <<< Deleted completely

    so now it looks like this to me:

  546. Xeneonic
    June 1st, 2008 | 06:07

    You know, if someone feel like volunteering, why don’t you try my Engine.ini and User.Ini and see if it allows you to save now?

    Just hard to post links here… if you want a copy of mine just send an e-mail to


    *Prays this reply gets posted*

    Remember that I have my own settings, and the engine.ini is read-only, so graphics settings might be too high for you. Bear with it if you can; if 2 FPS can assure us my ini is a definite fix it’s worth it.

    (Resolutions at 1680 x 1050, and the rest maxed) so might be easy for you to edit before entering the game and setting it to read only.

    hmm… I was just wondering why the “Save” folder in My Documents was marked “read only”? Could this be part of the problem or is it just supposed to be “read only”?

  549. Godlike

    results are in, and no

  550. Xeneonic
    June 1st, 2008 | 06:15


    I have no clue, when I check the properties on my save folder, it indeed says that it’s partially read only, but when I check all files within partially, they’re not read-only at all…

  551. Godlike
    June 1st, 2008 | 06:27

    Look. Fact is, at a random time, after a random amount of saves the game goes corrupt. It can’t be fixed in the .ini files, obviously the problem is deeper than that, and made intentionally.

    Here’s my idea, this is the route I’m trying right now: changing time-stamp on saved games. no luck yet though.

    @ Al

    default for My Docs folder is in C: for windows XP. if you install the game on another partition, the target should still remain at C: shouldn’t it? I don’t think the game installation and Docs need be in the same location

  553. Xeneonic
    June 1st, 2008 | 06:32

    I’m starting to notice that once every auto-save you can’t save manually anymore… be it the “every 10 minute” auto-save or the “Important Mission Trigger” auto-save.

    Which could lead to >>577′s suspicions.

  554. Azurit
    June 1st, 2008 | 06:33

    577: I honestly don’t believe this is a deliberate antipirate programming, even though it fits the description (basically a demo). I think it’s just an unstable executable.

  555. Azurit
    June 1st, 2008 | 06:34

    I thought it was autosaves as well so I turned them off. Didn’t help.

  556. Tom
    June 1st, 2008 | 06:34

    Quick observation I made…

    I’ve been playing the game through the console jump, and I’ve just been dealing with the save issue. Something I noticed though is that every time I enter the Mako, I am able to save as intended. I thought this was kind of strange. Anyone else experiencing the same thing?

  557. asdf
    June 1st, 2008 | 06:38

    582: Indeed, the save issue does not appear to hinder saving while in the Mako.

  560. Xeneonic
    June 1st, 2008 | 06:58

    Their issue was slightly different, it just produced the same results.

    Some users had trouble with Mass Effect because Mass Effect was looking for files in the wrong directory, because they changed their default documents and settings directory to a different partition. Theirs was also solved. I tried producing the same results to no avail.

    There weren’t many people complaining though, 10 at most.

  561. obis
    June 1st, 2008 | 07:03

    yes, saving in the Mako works fine so I don’t think it’s deliberate, or anything from an .ini file. Alas, I think we have to wait for a new crack, though I’m happy to be proven wrong :)

  562. Xeneonic
    June 1st, 2008 | 07:05

    after 10h of gametime i lost it all after jumping from 1 loc to other. Well, no point in crying since i AM using a cracked version etc. Ppl using console commands for jumping from loc to loc – beware. Somehow my char went from lev ~20 to lev 1 and autosaved on that =) Heh =) tough cookies ppl.

    Anyone else having a problem trying to leave noveria after arriving via the AT bioa_ice00 workaround? Once I finish the objectives and it says to leave via the tram you arrive in, I do so, and then see a load screen. Once it’s “loaded” I just get a black screen, but I can move the camera and make out vague shapes. It’s like the lighting system dies. Can’t find anything on the official forums and wondering if it’s broken-crack related.

    At the black screen, you just use at to move to feros or another planet and it’s back to normal mission complete. Trying to go back to ice00 results in the same normandy-without-lights.

    Look GUYS as Claude mentioned that thing with the galaxy maps, i figured out a easier task, when u access the galaxy map by pressing (E) u have to rapidly press right click, and u will be able to see the map!!! Now, the thing is…that u can go there, but not land on the actuall planet…the orbit of the planet gives u a black screen which u can still get out of by pressing 3 times right clik! :/
