Mass Effect Problems Mac

Post by wasted0087 on Sun 18 Mar 2012, 01:01

Alright, so I installed Mass Effect for Mac via Torrent (TPB) and everything worked out just fine, so fine that I increased the graphics and what not to the max and it was still running smooth on the main screen.

There wasn't a single problem until the Character creation menu where there was a minor glitch on the characters face, this isn't what I'm here for.

Once I have passed the Character creation it goes to the intro and after the Generals are talking about Shepherd and after the first paragraph of words it blanks out and those boxes come up with the errors. Anyone know what to do? (I have 2 pictures attached one for each pop up box)

MacBook Pro 17" 2011
Snow Leopard V 10.6.8
Processor: 2.53 GHz Intel Core i5
Memory 4 GB 1067 MHz DDR3
Intel HD Graphics & NVIDIA GeForce GT 330M

If any other info is needed let me know and I will gladly provide it. Please find a fix? Smile

Hello,

This seems like a problems some people are having with the torrent you downloaded.
Try removing the application from your PC Mac. After you've done so, go back to the original zip file and extract it using Stuffit Expander.
After that, re-install the game.

Will be waiting for the result. Good luck!

Stuffit Expander won't Extract it for some reason. I tried it on my Mac and my Windows and on the Mac it just refuses to Extract it and on my Windows it'll extract nothing from it. The Zip is about 9Gb. I have Archive Utility and UnRAR on my Mac and Winzip on my Windows.

Any other suggestions?

Hello,

If it's a Mac download, I doubt whether it'll open on your Mac.
Why can't you extract it on your Mac? Does it give an error?

With Stuffit it gives me a couple different Errors, I have pictures in the Attached files.

The first is trying to Extract it using Stuffit directly and the Latter is trying to extract it by "Open With -> Stuffit Expander"

I can extract it with one of my other programs just fine... I'll tell you the results with my Archive Utility if you'd like.

It won't let me add the pictures so I'll just tell you what the problem is with it.

The first when using Stuffit directly says
"A failure has occurred.
The archive may be damaged."

The second when doing the "Open with" says
"The application can't be opened.
-35"

Hello,

Try re-downloading the torrent, if that's not too much of a hassle.
