Mass Effect 1 Won't Launch. [SOLVED]

Post by JyL on Sat 12 Feb 2011, 07:25

Hi, I just downloaded your Mass Effect 1 torrent on piratebay and I can't get it to run. The installation went fine and I did the galaxy map fix. It gave me the "General Protection Fault" error when I tried to run the game (from binaries).

So then I patched to 1.02 and tried the crack you linked to (http://www.antistarforce.com/_ld/60/6094_MassEffectv1.02.7z) but then when I try to run the game (either from binaries or through the launcher), it simply crashes("Mass Effect has stopped working").

Problem Event Name: APPCRASH
Application Name: MassEffect.exe
Application Version: 1.2.20608.0
Application Timestamp: 4a55ff66
Fault Module Name: MassEffect.exe
Fault Module Version: 1.2.20608.0
Fault Module Timestamp: 4a55ff66
Exception Code: 80000003
Exception Offset: 01388ad7
OS Version: 6.1.7600.2.0.0.256.1
Locale ID: 4105
Additional Information 1: 0a9e
Additional Information 2: 0a9e372d3b4ad19135b953a78882e789
Additional Information 3: 0a9e
Additional Information 4: 0a9e372d3b4ad19135b953a78882e789

I'm on Windows 7 Ultimate. All system requirements are met, and my directx/graphics drivers are up to date.

I tried uninstalling and reinstalling but the same problem happened.

Hello,

Please install the v1.02 patch here: http://files.bioware.com/masseffect/updates/MassEffect_EFIGS_1.01a.exe (And patch your game to v1.02)
When that is done, download the new, updated NoCD crack for v1.02 here: http://www.antistarforce.com/_ld/60/6094_MassEffectv1.02.7z
Copy that NoCD crack to: C:\Program Files\Mass Effect\Binaries and REPLACE it by the existing one. The game should work fine now.

Hello,

I know, but did you copy the crack to exactly that folder?

If yes, I recommend you contact our Live Support through www.games4theworld.org when "Online" and see if they can fix the problem for you through TeamViewer. More information: www.games4theworld.org > Contact us > TeamViewer

The tech guy on teamviewer was very accommodating but s/he couldn't figure out how to fix it either. Suggested that I should look for an updated crack.

I'm pretty sure mine is not an isolated case though, a few people on piratebay seem to have the same problem, and none of them offered a solution from what i can see.

//EDIT

Ok all I had to do was run the exe as administrator. Thank you isohunt comments.
