Mass Effect 2 DLC Issue Workarounds

A post to the BioWare Social Network by BioWare's Chris Priestly outlines solutions and workarounds for problems users have run into with Mass Effect 2, particularly involving DLC and the new Cerberus Network. There's also a forum post with complaints that the game's preorder armor doesn't include the ability to remove your helmet. Thanks Kotaku. Here's the post with DLC solutions and workarounds:

Hello Mass Effect 2 fans.

We are aware of issues players are experiencing and are continuing to listen and work on these issues. When we have more information we will provide updates and let you know.

How can you tell if you are Cerberus Enabled:
When you start Mass Effect 2, there are two computers on the main menu. The computer on the right hand side of the screen should be open. If it is not then check to see that you’ve entered your Cerberus Code in the account creation screens located in game.

PC Collector's Edition Issues :
We’re aware that some PC Collectors’ Edition Cerberus Codes are not working. If you have the number 1688108 on the bottom right of your Cerberus Network card and have not associated it to your EA Online account at 4:00 PM PST your codes will be fully functional. If you already have associated it to your EA Online account at 6:00 PM PST you can restart the game and your Cerberus Account will be available automatically!

Zaeed :
Some of you may be looking for Zaeed as a way to check your Cerberus Account. Zaeed is being propagated to Xbox Live as we speak and will be available mid day tomorrow (MST).

Timeouts:
Some users are reporting timeouts or connection drops to Cerberus Network. We are actively pursuing a fix to this and will update everyone once it is fixed on the server-side.

General Cerberus Issues:
If you’ve entered your Cerberus Activation Code through the web interface and have played other EA Games with EA Online accounts but are not seeing the Cerberus Mission Computer open on the main menu. You’ll need to contact EA’s Customer service line to ensure that the Gamer Tag in Xbox Live is associated with your EA Online account you’ve used to activate Cerberus.

That thread is pretty neat.


Paraphrasing:

"It's not a bug it's a feature.

"We know it's not a bug... it's a stupid design decision!"

"HEY GUYS PERSONAL ATTACKS ARE NOT COOL. LOCKED."
