Both ME2 and DA have a screenshots folder (DA takes SS's periodically) but what is the key to take screenshots? (without fraps)

Will see what could be going wrong with the textures, not sure if one of the graphical options is turned down or if I just need the retail version of the game. I'll be buying it soon anyway.

Oh yes, and I'm playing with 4xSSAA and it looks perfect and runs just fine (5870 @ stock right now). I can't see any hint of jaggies on anything, SSAA is brilliant!

Yeah, supersampling didn't help. I don't get how dual GTX 275's get 20 fps in the engineering room on the Normandy. What the hell would explain this? I get 60 fps EVERYWHERE ELSE except a few other places. Something is wrong here.

I am using "08020205: Unreal Engine 3" compatability with 4x Multisampling AA with Gamma Correction and Super-Tranparency AA checked as being used. Seems to improve image quality tons with very little effect on FPS (even on the Normandy). Supersampling to me seemed to make everything too "fuzzy".

Bought the download straight from EA. One good thing about doing that is it allows installs on all personal computers you own. I was able to install it on mine and the one in daughter's room as well with no problems.

Beat the game. Was orgasmic.

BTW how do you get the steam digital download extras (other than DLC stuff)? I can't seem to find it anywhere.

Thanks lol... I was about to ask the same question.

But since that was answered... another question. Does anybody know how I can skip the intro movies? Starting a new character is EXTREMELY annoying since it literally takes about 20 minutes before you get to do anything of any importance. I know how to get rid of the splash screens, but those aren't as annoying to me as the actual intro when you start a new game.

Please help me .

Ahh nice thank you.

edit: the extras were mostly crap but the artbook was kinda cool.

I tried using Nhancer different compatibility modes for Mass Effect 1. And with 0802 I got corrupted screen.
But I am still not satisfied.

I am testing aa on Eden Prime. Without aa I have 60 stable fps. With little 2xaa 0801 mode Its 30-40fps... Isnt that to much impact for 2xaa?

Then in that folder, move or rename these files:
BWLogo.bik
GLO_01_Relay.bik (This is for traveling between systems via Mass Relay)
ME_EAsig_720p_v2_raw.bik
ME2_006_ON_AntiGlamour2.bik
ME2_Opening_SunMid_ESN.bik
ME2_Opening_SunMid_INT.bik
NumberReel.bik
Opening_End_Seq.bik
Opening_End_SeqFM.bik
Opening_Seq_INT.bik
ProNor_Pod2.bik
ProNor_Shepard_Rebuilt.bik
ProNorEscape.bik
ProNorEscapeAsh.bik
ProNorEscapeKaid.bik


Enjoy.
