The sticking overheat thing was intentionally inserted as an anti-piracy deterrent. Apparently the devs put in several little things like that designed to degrade the overall experience so that even if the initial authentication check for starting the game was cracked, a pirated copy of the game would still be problematic.

That's very interesting, as I've had the overheat gauge stick once on my XBox 360 copy. Bought from HMV. Ended up resetting and starting from last save point... didn't happen again.

Hello,

i am new here. I bought Mass Effect yesterday at Steam for the low Weekend-Deal-Price about 7,50 Euro.

When I start the game and switch to graphic settings, i do not find a 16:10 or a resolution 1680*1050.
The higehst resolution I can set is 1280 * 1025.

Here in this forum I read that Mass Effect has native support with 1680*1050, that is the native screen resolution for my monitor.

So please help me and tell me what I have to do to get the 1680*1050 resolution for this game.

Thanks.

Set your video options in the config on the launcher, not in-game.

why does it say in the settings "16:9" for all the widescreen resolutions, even the 16:10 ones (ie, 1920x1200, 2560x1600) ?

Probably they're just using the phrase "16:9" as a synonym for "widescreen." I'm sure they'll display in a correct 16:10 AR in spite of the malapropism.

Yes, even though it says 16:9 for 16:10 aspect-ratios, it still displays the HUD fine.

It's not the only game that does that, too. There were a couple others that I can't recall right now.

Surround is fucked, the problem seems to be no regard for aspect ratio, as the menus are all vet- as well as the game as if they are still being scaled to 16:9 (the option that all surround resolutions come under). I couldn't find out where the aspect ratio was being saved to force it anyone have any ideas?

1680x1050

3840x960

5040x1050

So, why arent you guys rallying up and tellings the developers to add HOR+ widescreen to this and Mass Effect 2? It worked for bioshock, right?
