I'm late to the party, but Original Mass Effect with insane texture and lighting

is just the cup of tea I wish to drink.

There is a mod that has been around apparently that I was not aware of, but damn, it is pretty great.

http://www.nexusmods.com/masseffect/mods/1/?

You can get it there. I loved that game from the second I played it, and I still think it is a benchmark for quality gaming experiences.

Crank up the textures. If you have a headed south setup like I have (GTX 460's in SLI that are the poster child of needing to be upgraded and have had themselves squeezed of every bit of overclocking that could possibly be done ...)you can still have fun with it. Even my lame set up can do DSR to emulate 1440p just bearably(4k shit the bed and required a reboot) to smooth out the jaggies.

Can everybody tell that I am going to drop dead if I don't get a new video card yet?

It has been Computex hype damn central but nobody has any cards of any sort except leaks, reviewers and people impersonating GTX 1080 owners (because who is going to admit that they spent an additional 100 bucks for a reference card with shitty cooling?) and a gaggle of VR crap that nobody in their right mind wants to adopt right now.

Anyway, I'm chilling playing old ass Mass Effect with massive textures, simulated 4K resolution on my ancient video setup, and life isn't so bad.

Please read the instructions. You have to have a valid Mass Effect install where you at least did configuration once. Set your card to do VSR/DSR then in the menu of display properties in the game you will see the option to run at 4K.

Please don't expect this to be playable without a tad of tweaking on non-enthusiast level graphics power, but if you are up for a good time with an oldie but goodie (and actually, many oldie but goodies) title, it's kind of great.
It looks great.

see this Hi folks,

We announced back in December that there was a database leak beginning to circulate around hacker circles from Nexus Mods. This database leak occurred all the way back in July of 2013 and affects anyone who had an account before August 2013. The leak contained your username, your email address and your hashed/salted (e.g. encrypted) password. With our sincere apologies, we asked that everybody please change their passwords.
