Bizarre PC Issue with ME 1

#1 Posted by PyreofKoL (5865 posts) -
I've been meaning to get these games for a long time and finally bought the original since it was cheap on Origin. Thing is, it won't run. I click Play on the start menu and I just get an error from Windows saying the game crashed. Any idea what's wrong? I'd really hate to have spent $15 for nothing.

You've probably either fixed the problem or have stopped caring by now but for anyone else who might need to fix this issue, download the 1.02 patch from here: http://www.fileplanet.com/204109/200000/fileinfo/Mass-Effect-Patch-v1.02 I had the same crashing issue and that solved it.
