Installing the game, navigating in the menus with keyboard.
Starting a game with the default character.
What does not
Mouse clicks do not work, thus the game is unplayable.
It is impossible to create a custom character as the keyboard does not reach some buttons on the UI.
Resolutions greater than 1400x1050 are not supported.
What was not tested
The framerate is approximately 1 image per 7 seconds on a GeForce 8800 (other games have fine framerates).

Get audio to work
Edit "Documents/BioWare/Mass Effect/Config/BIOEngine.ini"
Add the following under the "[ISACTAudio.ISACTAudioDevice]" section:
Ensure "Hardware Audio" is turned off in Sound settings in game
To get the MEUITM installer to work
A custom MassEffectModder.exe must be suppliedThis is seemingly due to it using functions not fully implemented in wine/mono
A hacky, usable version can be found here: https://github.com/DougTy/Mass...
Occasional "rendering exception" error while playing MEIUTM requires your game's binary be large address aware.
MassEffect.exe can be patched using this tool: https://www.techpowerup.com/fo...
Make a backup before patching!
