Mass Effect Legendary Edition It features a vast character creator with more options for customizing the look of the shepherd than the original release of the trilogy. However, many longtime fans are wondering if it is possible to import an old shepherd into a remastered version.
Fortunately, BioWare developers expected this popular request.There is a way to reintroduce the original shepherd into a new version of the game, but with a little patience, the right resources, and Face code..
How to find face codes in the original Mass Effect trilogy
It may seem obvious, but let’s start by clarifying it. I need to access the save data of the old Mass Effect To import the shepherd look from those games into the Legendary Edition. First, dust off your PS3 / Xbox 360 / late 2000s gaming PC and load a save file featuring the shepherd you want to use.
Enter the squad menu and look at the upper left corner.You should see what is called ID code: A string of numbers and letters that does not differ from the IP address. This 36-character code contains details of Shepherd’s unique look. Make a copy exactly as it appears and double-check the appropriate measurements.
What to do when extracting face code from Mass Effect 1
The above method works with the original release versions of Mass Effect 2 and Mass Effect 3.
However, if the shepherd face you’re importing is from an old Mass Effect 1 save, there are some additional steps you need to follow. This is because the ID code (brand name changed as the Legendary Edition face code) was not introduced until ME2. However, as long as you have a copy of the original Mass Effect 2 on the same system, you can still get the facecode.
Start a new game with ME2 and select when the options appear Import ME1 characters.. The selected ME1 shep will be imported into the ME2 character customization screen and the game will generate their ID code. Copy it and continue as above.
How to import face code into Mass Effect Legendary Edition
I copied the old face code, so it’s finally time Launch Mass Effect Legendary Edition..
Start a new game, Please enter a new ID.. Before we dive deep into the realm of customization, we need to make some choices regarding backstory, character classes, and more. When asked to make a choice, be sure to choose the same gender as the shep you are copying.
When you become Appearance of the character In the section, at the bottom of the screen code.. Copy the 36-character ID code from the old save to reconstruct the familiar face.
Face Code System Limitations and Possibilities
If you copy the code correctly, it will copy the shepherd’s facial structure, such as skin color, eye and hair color.
However, keep in mind that Legendary Edition is designed as a graphical upgrade. Not only does everything look at least a little different, but there are more options for character creation than before, which can lead to loss of nuance. The imported face should look pretty close, but you may need to make some adjustments to make it look as you remember it.
In addition, it is important to know that you can only convey the appearance of the shepherd. In all other respects, they will be a completely new version of the character. They are blank in terms of statistics, placement, relational values, etc.
However, one of the great advantages of all these is the possibility of using face code to import someone else’s shepherd design. Fans of the series have shared their identity code since the original trilogy was released. And with the release of the Legendary Edition, people who share their unique Shepherd work with the world may be revived.
