      [*]Quick method to Import faces Mid-Game without an me3headmorph file

      If you decide to change your FemShep's face halfway during a playthrough, here's an easy way to do it:

       

      • Create a New Game, name it "Headmorph Shepard"
         
         
      • Paste the Creation Code of the face you desire into the box
         
         
      • Start Game
         
         
      • Let the intro movie pass, once you're at the part where you can see Anderson, quit the game. (Alt+F4 works)
         
         
      • Run Gibbed's Mass Effect 3 Save Editor. Click on Open and select "Headmorph Shepard", Load
         
         
      • Export "Headmorph Shepard" using the steps above
         
         
      • Import to your desired Shepard using the steps above.

MASS EFFECT 3 MODDING BASICS

 

Planned Content

  • Programs Required - TexMod, GIMP/Photoshop, *.dds plugin
  • Dumping Textures basics - Logging mode via TexMod
  • TexMod.log and *.DEF files basics - making sure directory to textures are correct
  • Diffuse, Normal and Specular textures - What is what and how to make spec/norm maps - if possible
  • Making High-res textures - (I'm unsure about this one acutually)
  • Building TPFs - log/def file first
  • Taking screenshots - Fraps, etc

I was playing a bit with Coalesced.bin and you can do wonders with that.

1 click whole plannet scanned' date=' ammo restock after reloading, changing faces/hairs/clothes etc.

 

Here are only few pics with edited Fem shep + clothes + armors mix

 

 

 

 

Do those hairs actually work? Or are they bugged like Ashley?

In case you're waiting for the squadmate armor Coalesced mod (you know' date=' where you can wear squadmate armors), it's been figured out but is still very buggy, http://social.bioware.com/2134634/blog/212376/

following that causes a CTD for me...

 

 

Yeah, told you it's buggy.

If you can give more specific information on the error we might be able to help you. One of the errors that often occurs with Win7 and texmod is a "BEX" error.

 

If you do have a Bex error with Win7 you can often fix it by doing the following:

 

 

1. Left click on the start button and then right click on: computer.

2. Click on: Properties.

3. Click On: Advanced System Settings.

4. Click the Settings button under the performance section.

5. Choose the Data Execution Prevention tab.

6. Turn on Dep for all programs and devices (if it wasn't all ready on).

7. Now add the programs which doesn't run normally.

Hi All,

 

I have the Leathered Liara mod but I cannot get it to work. I can make the Luscious Liara mod work just fine. One sire recommeneded that I have the Luscious version on top in the load order in TexMod, that made no difference. Any hints?

 

Also, is there a way to start ME3 where it won't load the default in-game outfits on my companions. When I close it out to play later, I don't have their mods load at all, but mine does, oddly. I have to re-do the TexMod procedure each time. Maybe a batch file?

 

Thnx much,

Tom

 

P.S.

I love this site, stumbled upon it in a search. :)
