A new version of the fan-made Mass Effect Legendary Edition Community Patch is now available for download, introducing a variety of gameplay and visual fixes.
The 1.2 patch, which can be downloaded from Mod DB, brings a variety of localization, gameplay, and visual fixes for the first Mass Effect, such as an issue where Shepard's shield bar does not show the current shield percentage, NPC's eye moving when they are dead and more.
- Fixed a localization issue where players who used Russian, French, or Polish subtitles with English VO would have LE1 Community Patch’s text in English instead of their chosen language
- Fixed an issue where the pink and white visor bugfix was sometimes not applied to the mercenaries on Noveria
- Also fixed an issue with the mod where the Preaching Hanar would not be visible if you purchased the evangelical license

- NPC’s eyes will no longer move if they are dead
