    I presume it uses Origin? If the disk is spinning up then it's probably installing from the disk rather than downloading it even though it says otherwise. I had the same thing with BF3.

    Go into resource monitor or task manager and you should be able to tell there.

    Hrmmm... don't seem to be able to do the scanning ping thing.. the mouse icon on the screen with 'scan' written under it is in red, tells me to right click but nothing happens. What am i missing?

    Works like Sonar. Sends out signal and anomalies within range are displayed on screen can be on a planet or open space. Hope that helps.

    Not sure.. if there is no onscreen recognition that the scan has occoured then i must have been doing it constantly the last 10 minutes or so and nothing was found.. if there is some sort of recognition, then its not working..? Dunno.

    :confused:

    When you right click white rings should come from the normandy.

    Nothing happens for me. Is it enabled automatically or do i have to purchase a scanning upgrade somewhere... or something? :confused:

    Are you talking about scanning planets when you orbit them? Because you have to hold down the button while you move the cursor around until it picks something up.

    Nope, while in the system tooling around.. the bit where you see a map of the system you are sitting in (sun, planets, etc).

    Started playing, start is a bit slow, but necessary. Now just hitting the action. EPIC.


    Word of advice for PC players, put the brightness down to like -2, because I was wondering why the graphics looked so shit, turns out the higher the brightness, the more the textures look like shit.

    Can still tell this was made for console though. Screenshots look great at smaller res, but at 1080p, you can tell the textures weren't made for it! Here's to hoping for a HD pack, lol. Cos EA are all about helping their fans....

    oh i see....importing your character from ME2 will automatically set it to RPG mode while still giving you the chance to change appearance and abilities like ME2.
