Pinnacle Station DLC GET
By [ Ø ] Puns
Want to play Pinnacle Station DLC? Whatever your reason for doing so this guide will help you in that. For free. UPDATED
This guide is going to have you copying a folder from one location to another and making an .ini file It's not rocket science so figure that out on your own time. Please don't ask and instead google it or ask someone on your friends list. This guide also requires you to "read first then do".
Illuminati Confirmed, installing Origin
You need to install EA's origin service. https://www.origin.com/en-us/download With that out of the way you're also going to need to sign up for an EA account or sign in if you already have an EA account.
EA, voted most evil corporation of 2012 and 2013. [Consumerist]
"Why not just use the origin version?" ~Some EA shill. Good question. Because I the Origin installed version comes with more glitches and frame rate issues. In most instances the difference between Steam and Origin is Steam's version has a higher framer ate because most of the DRM from EA is not installed with the game. And the difference can be measured in double digits. I don't know about you but I wouldn't want to play with a lower frame rate because EA wants to make sure I bought the game every 5 seconds.
Sorry but not sorry EA, we're only borrowing the install
SPOILER ALERT: You need to temporarily install ME1 in Origin(And we wonder how they won two years in a row). Steams version of ME1 doesn't have any of the DLC, which is why we need to borrow EA's Origin.
Now that you have EA installed and you're signed in. We need to tell EA that you own a copy on steam.
As the image above shows, get your CD key and bring it over to the origin client.
Now you know where to redeem that key.
Now install and go play some games on steam while you wait.
Transplant the DLC
Finished that install? Awesome. Now we're going to liberate the DLC from the Heresy EA's Origin.
The Origin client will tell you where it installed ME1, you're going to that location and find a folder named "DLC". Slow down, you're going to take the folder "DLC_Vegas" and bring it to the DLC folder of your steam copy of ME1. DLC_UNC is the Bringing Down the Sky DLC, which has an actual legit installer and a guide for where to get that. http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=184373328
Now that you've copied the DLC you going uninstall the Origin copy and then revisit the location of your steam copy of ME1. There's a folder called binaries and in it a program called "MassEffectConfig.exe" run it and then click the word repair. Now you're going to click the button that reads "Delete Local Shader Cache Files". But we're not done yet.
Go back to where your steam copy of ME1 and go into "DLC\DLC_Vegas\" and create an .ini file named "autoload.ini"(see disclaimer). You're going to paste the following into the file.
Some users on steam have stated they have an issue redeeming keys through origin and from what I've found, EA is giving out bad keys to Valve which hands those keys off to users automatically. I haven't found a perfect fix for this yet as there isn't a way to buy pinnacle station through EA anymore. And EA's support is giving users mixed results for keys.
TL;DR If you cannot redeem it in Origin contact EA's support and be very polite. They may have a portion of your game hostage, but that doesn't mean they won't pull the trigger so to speak. Results may vary so don't worsen your odds.
I used mods LOL
Then read the directions and notes for the mod or mods you used. This guide is for a non-modded install of ME1. If you do the things outlined by this guide and are having issues, it may very well be the mod(s) causing you to have those issues. Asking here for support on a mod is the same as going to the wrong forum.
