Mass Effect Legendary Edition Community Patch 1.5.1 Release Notes

  • Added a Mod Settings Menu accessible from the pause screen, similar to the one included in LE3 Community Patch. Mods can extend this to add their own submenus in a similar manner. Several bugfixes in this mod have been made optional and can be configured through the menu. Huge thanks to DropTheSquid for taking the lead on this project.
  • Integrated the Persistent Options mod for LE1. This will add a FOV option to the settings menu of the game
