Hello, everyone. I'm having an issue involving the game freeze after the loading screen following Anderson's briefing and delivering a speech to the Normandy squad. I have tried reloading the save adjacent to the briefing (the one in the Earth hubspace, where you can say "goodbye" to your squad, individually), I have restarted the entire mission, but the freeze persists. 

Here is a list of the mods I am running:

Mass Effect 3 FoV Mod
Intuitive Controls Mod
Citadel Epilogue Mod
Tali Romance Mod
Tali Remastered
EGM - Expanded Galaxy Mod
ME3Recalibrated
Individual Cooldowns Mod (ME1 Style)
MEHEM The Mass Effect 3 Happy Ending 
ModBonus Power Packs
Project Variety
Priority Earth Overhaul Mod
Ark Mod
Spectre Expansion Mod
Respawn - Mission Overhaul

I am also running ALOT, but it was installed after all previous mods were successfully installed, and all instructions followed to the letter for each one. My game freezes after the PEOM cutscene showing off all the soldiers fighting on Earth, which includes shots from the multiplayer trailer. After this cutscene, the game shows a black screen, and freezes. Any help on this would be appreciated. Thank you.

Edit: I have run an ALOT game diagnostic. It says PEOM is of an unknown SFAR size, but that's the only error I get from that mod in particular.

Edit 2: Replaying the introductory part with protecting Hammer while destroying the Reaper AA turret has some occasional crashes as well, usually when something loads. The problem is that this particular crashing is random. Sometimes, this part goes without a hitch, sometimes it crashes after Cortez is shot down, sometimes it's after I destroy the Reaper AA, sometimes it's on the way to the roof. In addition, sometimes I'm allowed to manually save in the Earth hubspace, most times "save" is greyed out. Something about POEM is unstable on my installation, but removing it means removing triggers for MEHEM and Citadel Epilogue, which will require reinstallation, which means overwriting ALOT, which means more problems. I'd really appreciate some advice and wisdom right about now. Thank you.

I'm afraid I have no wisdom to offer but I just wanted to check whether you had figured out the problem.

Having the same issue right now, for the first time ever.

 

I only use

-   EGM and

-   ALOT (everything but ALOV).

 

So the only thing that changed from the countless other playthroughs of ME3 is EGM and that I use a [email protected] monitor.

 

Since I can't see why the monitor would cause the crash at this cutscene, it seems that it has to do with EGM. I'll try without EGM and then report the outcome.

 

Or is there a solution by now?

 

Is any of the ALOT mods known for issues?

 

 

Edit:

Without EGM, the problem still occurs.

 

I tried everything, Vsync is on, lower resolution, reinstalling the game, it always freezes during the cutscene. Is there a way to just skip the whole cutscene?

 

 

Edit 2:

So I found a solution on the EA forums that worked (if anyone else might run into this issue):

 

- Rename the GamerSettings.ini to old_GamerSettings.ini

- Restart Origin, then start the game

 

That actually worked for me.

Hey Im having this same issue but if you are referring to the GamerSettings in C:\Users\Username\OneDrive\Documents\BioWare\Mass Effect 3\BIOGame\Config then it doesn't work. At least it didnt for me. Anyone have any answers?
