I'm having trouble with my MODs for Mass Effect 3, well I think it's my MODs. Anyway, the game freezes/crashes after the Mars mission during the conversation with Hackett. More specifically right as he says, "I was worried Cerberus might try something." I have managed to get by it by lowering the resolution and graphics settings but when the screen goes black to transition to the Normandy arriving at the Citadel it just stays black and nothing I try can get past there nor can I get there again. I'm pretty sure it's a MOD issue because I'm able to get past this scene with just a vanilla install of the game without doing any graphic settings changes.
My MODs as well as the order in which I install them (by recommendation of Expanded Galaxy MOD's FAQ) are as follows:
- Expanded Galaxy MOD
- ME3 Racalibrated
- Back Off
- Project Variety 2.1
- Priority Earth
- Miranda MOD
- Spectre Expansion MOD
- Omega HUB
- Bonus Powers - Packs 1&2
- Invdividual Cooldowns
- Additional Texture MODs
I use "MOD Manager" only to install Individual cool downs and to AutoTOC. The rest of the MODs are installed either manually following the instructions to a T. Or are done with their installers.
Before I start installing each one by one and starting the game over and over and over I'm hoping someone may know what the issue is and how to fix it (easily is preferable haha).
I know Back Off and Project Variety are technically incompatible but I've tried installs with one and not the other installed and the same problem persists. Also, the creator of PV says they are compatible as long as PV is installed after BO. Plus they work well together until that point. I know this is about the time the game starts loading up the Citadel stuff so the Spectre Expansion MOD may be causing an issue but I did an install without it and same thing happened.
The only other thing I can think of is that with all the Texture MODs installed via ALOT, the game is reaching its 4GB RAM limit for 32 bit. I don't think that's the case but you all can let me know what you think about that.
Also in case it's relevant here are my Computer Specs:
Intel i9 9900KS
RTX 2080 FTW3
Windows 10 Pro
I appreciate any feedback/solutions you may have.
