What is coalesced.ini?

Coalesced.ini is a configuration file that stores various data for Mass Effect 2, such as graphics, audio, gameplay, UI, and more. It is located in the BioGame\Config\PC\Cooked folder of your game installation directory. By editing this file, you can change various aspects of the game, such as planet scanning speed, power cooldowns, shield penetration, weapon damage, and more. However, editing this file also comes with some risks, such as crashing the game or breaking the balance. Therefore, you should always back up your original coalesced.ini file before making any changes.

How to edit coalesced.ini?

To edit coalesced.ini, you will need two tools: Notepad++ and CoalescedrealCRC.rb. Notepad++ is a text editor that can handle large files and different formats. CoalescedrealCRC.rb is a Ruby script that can fix the checksum of the coalesced.ini file after editing it. The checksum is a value that verifies the integrity of the file. If the checksum does not match the expected value, the game will not launch or crash.

Here are the steps to edit coalesced.ini:

  • Download and install Notepad++ from here.

  • Download and install Ruby from here.

  • Download CoalescedrealCRC.rb from here and place it in the same folder as your coalesced.ini file.

  • Open Notepad++ and open your coalesced.ini file with it.

  • Make the changes you want to the file. You can use the search function (Ctrl+F) to find the sections or values you want to edit. You can also refer to some modding tutorials or guides online for examples of possible tweaks.

  • Save your changes and close Notepad++.

  • Run CoalescedrealCRC.rb by double-clicking on it. It will create a new file called fix_Coalesced.ini with the correct checksum.

  • Rename fix_Coalesced.ini to Coalesced.ini and overwrite the original file.

  • Launch Mass Effect 2 and enjoy your modded game.
