Modifications to the same-sex Mass Effect Legendary Edition are underway using cut assets


Characterized by romance, RPGs can give players interested in that kind of content a different level of immersiveness and enjoyment. Skyrim does that. Dragon Age does that. Mass Effect does that. Mass Effect 1 didn’t do that Good, However, the team learned and evolved, eventually adding more options in the next two releases. That said, more options were left on the floor of the cutting room, including Jack as a pansexual option, and the original trilogy mods quickly restored those scenes. Currently, there is only one mod that restores homosexual romance, only the default male shepherd, but the entire community is working hard to restore the cuts.

The file was cut in the original game and the audio lines recorded for homosexual romance options for characters such as Kaidan, Jack, Jacob, Thane, and even Tali were removed. Some of these dialogue options were recorded unintentionally, but I’ll elaborate on this in a bit more detail, but they were cut due to social pressure to eliminate homosexual pairing. There are also some. The most notorious was the decision to cut Jack, a character in a conversation with Shepherd who clearly stated that she was with both men and women. Criticism from Fox News.. Fortunately, the community is coming to save the day by doing the same with Mass Effect Legendary Edition, as Modder did in the original trilogy.

Known as Audemus in the modding community, Ryan Ainsworth recently sat down with his friends. TheGamer Talk to the remaster and one of many upcoming initiatives. Mass Effect Legendary Edition uses an updated Wwise audio engine, so it’s easier to mod with cut audio than the first trilogy that players saw in some of the older homosexual mods. The update makes it easier for the mods community to restore cut romance that was limited to third games, such as Kaidan and Ashley.

“I think it’s very disappointing that there is no LGBT representation in the Mass Effect trilogy,” Ainsworth told the site. “Especially if you play a strictly gay male shepherd, you can’t get a full Paramore achievement in the Legendary Edition. Adding those romance to BioWare for Mass Effect 2 and Kaidan’s gay romance. I know there is a petition to get [the first] It’s a shame that Mass Effect, and it doesn’t seem to happen, but in addition to the potential for our improved Mass Effect 2 audio mods, all of the unused same-sex romance is Legendary Edition. Although still present in the file, these mods are not only in the table, they are definitely created. “

He added, “PC gaymers can be pleased (it was a terrible joke, don’t print it, lmao). From the top of my head, these are Kaidan, Ashley, Jacob, Jack, Miranda, Tane. , And maybe for Tari. Some files don’t have enough files to fully restore, but you can reuse / splice existing lines to fill in the blanks. “

Remember the February interview. Fox News pressure reportedly cut the homosexual option, including Jack, but Kaidan wasn’t intended to be a male shepherd option in the first game.Game director Mac Walters said Game informer The character was later added as a male romance option in the third game, but the audio found on his character in Mass Effect 1 did not show cut content. It’s not like Jack.

When asked if Kaidan’s romance was cut for a male shepherd in the first game, if so, will it be remastered? Walters answered “no” quickly and clearly. He elaborated, “This is interesting. What happened in the first game is that in fact every game you have to actually enter manually when recording the male and female shepherd lines. There was. Flag all lines that shouldn’t or shouldn’t be recorded for either gender at this time. As you can imagine, the process was created with a tool in Mass Effect 1. Since it was just new, it depended on all human beings actually participating. Select every row. There is not only a row, but a record that should not have been recorded because it was not checked. Because of the other lines that were made, it prints like this: Script, they went to the studio, the actors recorded them, they came back to the game, and it was shipped. ”

The team tried to capture as many unchecked instances as possible and eventually added that the toolset was improved to reduce human error, but in the first game it was still all very new. was. And Kaidan’s line slipped through the gap. So Walters added that Kaidan was “unintentional in the original” and could only be romanced by a male shepherd in the third game. The team already wants to keep the remaster loyal. Beyond generalized improvements, source material as much as possible.

Remember: The romance of these games is optional and will further romance the same gender.If you don’t like it, you can simply ignore it, but there are options There Enjoying or ignoring means a lot for a very large part of the Mass Effect fan base.In the game about your There is nothing wrong with experiences, hoping that those experiences will marry real tastes.
