I've posted 2 other threads about the game not being able to launch. It basically goes into an infinite black loading screen after the splash. Just wanted to know if this error log has any meaning to what the problem might be.

Any insight at all?

Before telling me to run ME and Steam as administrator, please do know that I have done this in every possible combination as well as running compatibility.

Thats what caused the failure of launching in the first place. Game worked fine before steam forced me to verifycache files. But I have also tried verifying them again, it didn't work.

About 5 or 6 times. Nothing seems to work. I installed it on my laptop to test if the game was compatible at all, turns out it runs on my laptop, but I want to play it on my gaming desktop. I don't know what is incompatible with the game or why.

i know you tried compatability mode, but have you tried vista sp2 or xp sp3 compatability mode? I know i had a problem with running the first mass effect on windows 7 x64 and setting it to xp sp3 did work.

There is a patch 1.02 on bioware's site. I'd link it but my work blocks game sites. xD
