How to fix your keybindings and your thermal clip packs on the Talon Merc

PRELIM: Go here and download the nice, easy to use, coalesced editing utility.

  • bioinput.ini > sfxgame

    • sfxgamemodebase
      • Scroll down to the bottom. In the empty line with an asterisk, type:
        ( Name="TCP_Fix", Command="CastPower 10" )
        Hit enter. TCP_Fix can be whatever you want, as long as it's unique.
    • sfxgamemodedefault > bindings = (multiple)
      • Change the "Name" value of any of these necessary so that it matches your personal keybindings.
      • Scroll down to the bottom. In the empty line with an asterisk, type:
        ( Name="Eight", Command="TCP_Fix" )
        Hit enter. TCP_Fix neesd to match whatever you used above. The "Name" value should be whatever key you want to access your thermal clip packs with.
  • You may need to do these as well:

    • sfxgamemodedefault > 00000409 > localizedbindings = (multiple)
      • Change the "Name" value of any of these necessary so that it matches your personal keybindings.
    • sfxgamemodedefault > 0000040c > localizedbindings = (multiple)
      • this is for french (AZERTY) keyboard localizations. I don't know if you have to alter these for an AZERTY keyboard. Given the way the bug works, it might just be pulling the default QWERTY layout. If some of your changes don't work, add them here as well.

Notes:

  • Your thermal clips still won't show up, but the command will at least work.
  • If you have a 5 button mouse, the thumb buttons are called ThumbMouseButton and ThumbMouseButton2. Any other buttons can be found by browsing through biogame.ini > sfxgame > sfxgamemodemanager > keynames = (multiple)
  • If you want multiple keys to access the same command, just add another line, where the "Name" value matches the second key, and the command matches the first one.
  • If you use ESDF instead of WASD, good luck. We can help, but I'm too lazy to write it up here.
  1. Unzip the folder.
  2. Select all of the files and copy them to a folder somewhere.
  3. Double click on ME3Coalesced.exe
  4. Choose file > open (or ctrl+o) and find your Coalesced.bin. If you're reading this, it's probably located in:
    C:\Program Files (x86)\Origin Games\Mass Effect 3\BIOGame\CookedPCConsole
  5. Save when you're done.

If you screw up your coalesced, just delete it. Origin will notice and redownload it the next time you try to play.
