Uh, for ME3, you do put Origin into Offline mode before starting the game, right? (In Origin Menu bar "Origin" -> "Go Offline" -> You little avatar image in the upper right corner should become grey) 'Cause that cuts the network connection and DLC checking times really short.

Working quite well for me. Wondering if anyone else is experiencing this. Without the quick load movies installed as I'm trying to run as vanilla as possible for testing, after about 5 seconds, the video stops, the circle of death shows up from Windows, and the sound keeps playing. But, when the sound is done at its normal time, the game continues without issue.

Anybody else have that issue or is everyone testing with the quick load movies so you haven't seen that?

But it is working awesomely with a new mod as DLC I'm testing out. Even without the mod as DLC in place, it's still locking up a bit.

I did a full vanilla install from steam directly and emptied out my My Docs folder to be safe; works like a charm. I was having some issues from what I thought was a vanilla install with intro movies hanging after 5 seconds but then everything went ahead. But now, it's working great. Thanks!
EDIT: Forgot I made that post above, d'oh.

Alright, *proper* version this time:

The link still didn't change.

I abused backward compatibility a little with previous versions... sorry! :mrgreen:

EDIT: still the same link lol.

Yeah, my Origin is permanently offline AND I have a firewall block built in for it and ME3. Regardless, it still spends a minute or two in the main menu trying to "contact the server" (little wheel in the upper left) each time I launch the game.

Awesome. Will test soon but I already know it will work.
EDIT: As expected, works great. Thank you!

After using this unlocker - with Improved Textures installed - when ME2 starts up is says it can't authorize the Zaeed, Normandy Crash Site and Cerberus Weapon pack DLCs.

Is there now a fix for that?

Personally, I'd suggest you use Erik JS's binkw32.dll files. I had the same issue, and using those instead worked for me.

Hi guys. I need help.
After installing texture (using TPF/DDS tools install valid method) and applying unlocker, my ME2 still cannot authorize Zaeed...which is weird 'cos I have zero problem with Normandy Crash Site and Cerberus Weapon pack. What can I do??

I tried ME2explorer DLC crack as well. The status log looks promising but same result.

This pertains to ME2 and ME3. I don't know if I should've posted this on the ME3 topic, but I think this topic needs more views, and also I posted here before, so...

https://github.com/Erik-JS/masseffect-binkw32

I never publicly posted my ME2 bink code, so it's there now. Also the ME3 dll has been slightly updated by me (it's even "better" than the version I packed with PSE).
