Mass effect 1- Please insert the next disk (disk1). [SOLVED]

Post by Bonkahe on Mon 06 Jun 2011, 04:40

So, I have started installing mass effect 1, I beat mass effect 2 & wanted to start over & work my way through both storys & be ready for number three, but the problem is that when I start to install it says a little way in to insert disk 1, retry retry blah blah blah, wont work, I extracted to the desktop, & ran as admin, ect, so I did some snooping around & the install manifest has allot of .rar files that are not in the data folder (starting after isact.rar it doesn't contain any of the files below,) I assume that the download has failed but I don't know, so essentially when I extracted the rar to my desktop im missing some files, could use some help.

Hello,

Please open the .rar file you downloaded using only WinRar, which can be downloaded from www.games4theworld.org . (If you use any other software than WinRar, like WinZip or 7-zip, the files will get messed up!)
When you've opened the file using WinRar, select áll the files in it and drag & drop them to a folder on your Desktop. When the extraction is done, close the .rar file and open the folder on your Desktop.
Now, start by reading the included "# Installation Guide.txt" and you should be able to get the game to work yourself. Good luck!

If you read my post you would know that coping & pasting that answer wasn't gonna work, but that's fine, I figured it out on my own, turns out for some reason winrar didn't extract all of it, I went in & manually pulled it out, thanks for the game.

Hello,

Well, you said you missed some files and that's usually caused by a wrong extraction.
Anyhow, I'm glad the game works for you now. Have fun playing!
