Thought I'd share with you guys what I worked out for adding cheat key bindings to Mass Effect. This works on both the one from the Trilogy disc version and the PSN version.
First you need to locate your COALESCED_INT.BIN. If you have an update installed you need the one from dev_hdd0/game/**GAMEID**/.....
Copy/FTP that file to your PC and open it with this Gears Of War 2 Editor (I know it's for a different game but it works. It helps you to work with the unicode formatting)
Now for the actual modding. I'm going to list basic instructions and give some examples. Once you loaded up your COALESCED file navigate to ..\..\BIOGame\Config\PS3-BIOInput.ini\Engine.PlayerInput in the editor and add your codes to the main settings for the controls. Don't replace them but add to the beginning of the key binding and put a | afterwards. Examples below
Give Max Money
Teleport to cursor location
( Name="XboxTypeS_DPad_Up", Command="AdjustCredits 9999999 | GUIScrollUp | HandleButton BIO_BUTTON_DPAD_UP 1 | OnRelease HandleButton BIO_BUTTON_DPAD_UP 0 | InGamePropertyEditorUPAction | MiniGame_DPad_Up | Repeat GuiKey BIOGUI_EVENT_CONTROL_UP | OnRelease GuiKey BIOGUI_EVENT_CONTROL_UP_RELEASE")
Set Paragon to Max (Gives new options in conversations)
( Name="XboxTypeS_DPad_Down", Command="Teleport | GUIScrollDown | HandleButton BIO_BUTTON_DPAD_DOWN 1 | OnRelease HandleButton BIO_BUTTON_DPAD_DOWN 0 | InGamePropertyEditorDOWNAction | MiniGame_DPad_Down | Repeat GuiKey BIOGUI_EVENT_CONTROL_DOWN | OnRelease GuiKey BIOGUI_EVENT_CONTROL_DOWN_RELEASE")
Set Renegade To Max
( Name="XboxTypeS_DPad_Left", Command="SetParagon 330 | HandleButton BIO_BUTTON_DPAD_LEFT 1 | OnRelease HandleButton BIO_BUTTON_DPAD_LEFT 0 | MiniGame_DPad_Left | Repeat GuiKey BIOGUI_EVENT_CONTROL_LEFT | OnRelease GuiKey BIOGUI_EVENT_CONTROL_LEFT_RELEASE")
( Name="XboxTypeS_DPad_Right", Command="SetRenegade 330 | HandleButton BIO_BUTTON_DPAD_RIGHT 1 | OnRelease HandleButton BIO_BUTTON_DPAD_RIGHT 0 | MiniGame_DPad_Right | Repeat GuiKey BIOGUI_EVENT_CONTROL_RIGHT | OnRelease GuiKey BIOGUI_EVENT_CONTROL_RIGHT_RELEASE")
All tested and confirmed working. Other console commands can be added to different buttons there. Remember not to replace the current bindings, but add to them. For a full listing of all possible console commands please visit the Mass Effect Wiki
