Installing Creating a character and all UI interactions
What does not
Mouse speed is not affected by the senstivity slider, mouse turning and looking is slow as molasses. Good for sniping though.
What was not tested
Getting far into the game.
I used winetricks to install d8input as a native library in Mass Effect's wineprefix to do so, grab a recent version of winetricks and execute env WINEPREFIX="/your/wineprefix/path/here/" winetricks d8input Make sure you run the game with the "Allow windows to capture the mouse" option in winecfg enabled. The mouse works fine in menus, a bit slowly in-game, but fully functional.

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!
