|Latest Wine Version Tested:||3.10|
Maintainers: About Maintainership
Everything except audio (without quick fix).
Simple as installing it via Steam and starting it up.
Used MEUITM for HD textures, worked fine by copying files from a Windows install of the game + mod.
Would be Platinum if it wasn't for audio issue.
What does not
At first audio does not work, but is fixed by going to Documents/BioWare/MassEffect/Config/BIOEngine.ini and beneath [ISACTAudio.ISACTAudioDevice] adding
What was not tested
A full playthrough, but I visited many locations and did a lot of dialogue scenes.
-Few minor dips in framerate, but nothing unplayable. System used: i5 4690k, GTX960, 8GB Memory

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!
