Mass Effect

“Dad – my game keeps crashing.”

And there goes an hour I won’t get back.

Turns out there’s something wrong with Mass Effect 2.  Was it the antivirus software? No. Settings for the graphics? No. In the end I set Steam to run as Admin, and registered the game with EA Games – Heck, must I have a relationship with every company who sells me anything on the Internet? – and voila, it worked.

Not entirely a wasted hour. Kurtzhau kept diving into the cupboard which serves as my study, armoury  and library, and asking what I was doing, pretty much the way I did when Dad fixed my bike, and my Dad would have done when his Dad was doing what they did back in the 1940s.

  1. Did you get the version of ME2 that comes with all of the extras? If so, then you need to download them from EA, if I remember correctly. Which is, indeed, a major faff.
