http://www.masseffect2faces.com/ for all your character face code needs.
One fairly significant change as of 1/27: From now on, all saves with more than one file will be zipped.† This will save on bandwidth, save me time and be easier for you guys too, I think.† Iím not going back and fixing the files from 1/26 and before right now, maybe after I finish the game myself and have more time.†
We are hoping the move to http://www.masseffectsaves.com with the site redesign over the weekend.
This page was originally created for the Something Awful Mass Effect 2 thread goons, but welcome to gamers from the entire internet! Please keep spreading the word about this site throughout the gaming community!† Itís my plan to continue expanding the site to include ME2 saves, automatic submissions, and to be a hub for Mass Effect gameplay information.† If you have info on Mass Effect you think would be useful to the gaming community, please let me know via e-mail!
Huge thanks to everyone whoís taken the time out to send in their files.† I try to get all saves & updates posted within 24 hours of receiving them, so if you donít find a Shepard you like, try back in a day or two.† Also, thanks from the bottom of my heart to those who have donated to help me keep the site going.† All donations are being reinvested into the site right now.
Constructive criticism and suggestions are always welcome!† Please email me at the firstname.lastname@example.org address or IM me (AIM: AnnakieSA) if you have a suggestion or see anything that needs correcting or updating.† Iím just one person with a job and a life running this thing so give me some time to get back to you!
If you have Mass Effect 1 PC saves, please consider submitting your Shepard, especially if youíve got high-level Shepards that donít have the same choices as other high level Shepards on the site!† Iíve gotten over 100,000 unique hits on this site now, the more variety of Shepards I have here, the better.† Many of the Shepards here have been downloaded over 1000 times each!† Please click here for submission instructions. Submitting will only take 5 minutes or so and your Shepard will live on in the games of others!† Thank you!
News & Updates
∑ ME1 decisions page updated.
∑ Spending much of my time today preparing for tomorrowís move.† Big day coming up!
∑ Sorry about the lack of updates yesterday, I had some personal and work stuff to do at night and didnít get a chance to work on the site.† At least 3 new Shepards coming later today.† I also still have some emails to answer that I will get to.
∑ Okogawa has sent in a link to a guide heís written to using gibbedís savegame editor.† Youíll find the link in the mods section.
∑ I want to thank everyone whoís sent in donations to help with the site.† Iíll be using the donations so far to upgrade my plan with my hosting provider so hopefully we wonít run into bandwidth issues again.†
∑ New Shepards tonight: MP/N, FR/K, MP/A
∑ Hey have you checked out the State of the Site Address?
∑ Hal Shepardís (MM/A) download links fixed.
∑ Got a request from someone via Twitter for partially-completed ME1 save.† Click here to see his request.† Please note after the site relaunch this weekend Iím going to be working on an automated reader-request page!
∑ Some answers in the FAQ were out of date, so it was updated.
∑ New Shepards tonight: MP/L/60, two FP/L.† Apparently yesterday we hit 100!† So now, 103!
∑ Split MP/L into level 60ís and below level 60ís.
∑ Another choice added to the ME1 decisions page.
∑ Fixed the link to dogkisserís ammo mod (apparently I am not good at the internet) and added contact info for gibbedís savegame editor both on the mod page.
∑ Rachel #2 is back up with working files.
∑ List of Mass Effect 1 decisions that carry over to Mass Effect 2 page created.
∑ At least 5 new Shepards up tonight!
∑ Evening Shepard Update: one FR/K, one MM/A, two MP/L, one MR/A
∑ Male Mixed Alignments split into romance options
∑ Rachel #2 (FM) updated with different council alive/dead options
∑ Front page redesigned a bit for easier link-finding.
∑ New Sheps today: One FR, one MP/A, one MR
∑ Rachel #2 (FM) has been removed for corrupt save files.† Daniel Shepard moved from MP/N to MP/L per email from someone who used the Shepard.† Lianna Shepard moved from FP/N to FP/K per submitter.† It looks like if you get the scene where the Romance option comes into your quarters before Ilos, that does count as a completed romance, even if you choose not to sleep with them.† This probably affects more No-Romances files here than just these two.
∑ Male and Female Renegades split up into Romance categories.† Turns out we have NO Male Renegades who romanced Liara, and only one for No romance.† Please consider submitting your saves if you have either of these types of files.† Thanks! :)
∑ Renaming page updated with two new renaming process options.
∑ Reminder: There will be no evening updates tonight, I wonít be home!† Hereís the current bandwidth state, I expect traffic will continue to decline, so everything should be fine.† I do have an emergency procedure in place in case something does happen, though. (Goons: please alert Count Choculitis or RoryGilmore if you see the site go down today.)
∑ Was alerted by a reader that Jane #4 (FP/N) had two different files for council alive/dead and the names were switched around.† If you downloaded her, you may have the wrong ending for the council.† Iíve switched these around.
∑ Chalfon Shepard updated with new Saving Council files.
∑ New Shepards today: One FM, One FR, One FP/L, and one MP/A.† That would be 93 Shepards on the site now!
∑ The Submission page has been update with more info on how I need saves sent in to me to help me get them up on the site easier and quicker.
∑ FAQ has been updated. If youíve submitted a Shepard, you may want to check it out, thereís an issue there Iíd like feedback on.
∑ Was alerted that I had put Chalfon Shepard in the wrong category.† Huge apologies to anyone who downloaded him and found an Ashley romance instead of Liara.† Iíve moved him to the right place.
∑ NEW PAGES ADDED: Mods List Page and mods list submission page!† I canít host mods right now but if you have one youíd like listed, See the submission page and Iíll link it here!† Please note I cannot provide support for these mods, please contact their makers if youíd like to ask questions, give comments or support.
∑ Very much less important new page added, News Archive.† Link at the bottom of the page if anybody really cares what happened at the site in the past.
∑ No time this morning to update new Sheps, sorry guys.† Will get them all up tonight.
∑ As of 8am/c this morning weíre at 89% bandwidth,† I bought some extra monthly bandwidth from my hosting provider, so it should no longer be an issue.
∑ Also, we had a small downtime sometime overnight.† That was the hosting provider putting into place a solution to a root cause of other downtime earlier this week.† Hopefully should be more stable now.
∑ Evening Update (Itís a big one) Valen Shepard (FP/K) has been updated to level 60. Chalfon Shepard (MP/A) updated with different Save/Kill Anderson/Udina save options.† Joanna Shepardís (FP/L) link was wrong, I have updated her download link to the correct link.
∑ New Shepards: One FM, two FP/L, one MR, a new FP/K, one FR, one MP/A, one FP/N.† Is that 89 Shepards?† Iím starting to lose count!
