It helps to either be a total badass or a complete pushover in this game I am on 30 hours of gametime now... and still have a handfull of loyalty missions to do! Exploring every planet and doing every side mission before I hit the point of no return. What an awesome game!

No, you can't I'm afraid. The best option to pick for that would be on the middle-right if you can't select the Paragon/Renegade options. The way they have it set up so it's the most neutral decision you can make. I'm about to run into that scene, so I think I can confirm it for sure.




For those using SLI + AA and getting crappy performance, try using 000100B5 in nhancer's compatability mode. It's not there by choice, so just type it in the pull-down menu. Then select flags: 10, 13, 14, 22 and 25. Makes a huge difference. I can stay in the 50 FPS range in the Science Lab with 4x MSAA now.

For even more tweaking, go to where your Mass Effect 2 folder is in My Documents, then BIOGame/Config. Then open up GamerSettings.ini, and under the [SystemSettings] section, add: MaxShadowResolution=. You'll want to choose from 64 - 512. 512 being the default. I set mine to 128, and it somewhat looks the same while boosting FPS majorly. The biggest impact was the Science Lab and The Illusive Man's shiny room.


Also, I thought you guys might like this. It was extracted from the game's assets.



Enjoy.

I chose the Renegade option which is neutral to either of them (basically tells them to hold off untill after the mission and then fight). My question is that I maxed out Jacks relationship choices and now Miranda says that she wont share and I have to tell the crew that I am taken. So if I say that will I ruin my choices with Jack or will it come down to both women asking me to choose?

It's already been commented on, but man does miranda's head look big. Might be those black coverings on her arms making the shoulders look smaller, but it gives her taht bobble head look when the rest of the unreal engine renders everyone with roid shoulders

I just finished it. IT was one of best games I ever played !!!DAMN! I am very impressed. I played more paragon. Second time I will be BADASS Shepard
Have some ending questions right here:

I had everyone on my team and did loyalti mission for everyone. As so I had red ring under everyone expect Miranda. I couldnt get back her loyalti again.
At the end I I choosed Mordin for vents and he died from shot in head. Also Miranda died under debriess.

I slept with Tali though.
Does Miranda always die?

No your whole team can survive and be loyal

If you go with garrus as your squad leader each time they'll survive since he has experience leading.

The tech should always be legion or tali, your biotic should be samara or jack. Send mordin back with the crew you save. Oh those people need to be loyal or it won't work.

They aren't real nate. Just video game characters. You can't sleep with them.

Hey guys sorry for the stupid question but where does one input the collectors gear code? I was able to put the Cerberus code at http://social.bioware.com/redeem/ and got three downloads from it but I don't know what to do with the collectors code as the above page says it cant recognize it I have registered the game with no issue too so I don't think its that.
Thanks much

A lot of people have had issues redeeming codes. Did you buy the Steam version? I just put in all my codes I could find and I have all the items I'm entitled to.
