I ripped the data from a 360 formatted usb. It should look like this
Content\0000000000000000\45418987\00080000
with the actual demo file in 00080000. Dunno what format it is though lol.

Yeah, my friend just stopped by and had to lower it back to normal because of the enemy at the end of mission 2 lol. Then again he was trying out Vanguard for the first time, where in ME2 he was Adept.

1. Download Horizon 360 from here.
2. Plug your flash drive into your computer and open up Horizon 360. It should automatically open it up in the program on the bottom right hand side.
3. Drag and drop the BF3 file into the window that has your flash drives contents, it should start importing.
4. Once the import is done, close the program, unplug your flash drive, plug it into your 360, then go to My Xbox > System Settings > Memory > USB Drive > Demos, and copy the BF3 Beta to your 360.
5. Once that's done, go to your game library and it should be at the top of the list.

Try this?

Vanguard is really hard in this game. I switched to Assault when I decided that using up close tactics when enemies had multiple turrets wasn't happening. :lol

I wish I could skip to part 2 so I could try more classes more easily, since the game plays so differently now.

Okay the download from Gambit does not work if you copy the "data" files straight to a usb drive. Looks like we will have to copy them to the drive extract the content folder with a USB Xplorer and inject it into out own formatted USB structure.

Testing now if it works ill write a tutorial

I tried this one but when I put it into the 360, it says "Mixed Media Disc" and won't load

Any ideas? Not tried putting demos onto disk before and I followed the guide.

Then it looks like we have a problem - that's what it says when you try to play it on an account other than the one you downloaded it with.

My burn will be done in 3 minutes so I'll confirm it.

So one of BioWare's main combat goals for Mass Effect 3 was to diminish the necessity to use a ton of guns. They wanted to make powers more useful and versatile, and the trade off of carrying less weapons for faster recharge worthwhile. So you could theoretically pimp the pistol + powers Vanguard or whatever, using more powers than guns.

Did they succeed or fail?

Varying levels of success. It's certainly better than it was in ME2.

I need to do an Adept run.

Yeah that's what I'm hoping. Honestly didn't like that the demo was like straight combat all through, hope it's not representative of the final game. Maybe I'm just burnt out on Mass Effect combat after playing so much of 2 but I feel like I had lots of "oh god another wave?" moments.

Seems so, but for the 2nd gameplay scenario (in the opening you only have a couple powers) they give you a full loadout of 4 weapons and you can't change that, which means your power recharge time is increased dramatically. So hard to get a good feel of it. Kinda annoying trying to play through as an adept and waiting like 10 seconds for Pull to recharge :/. But yeah the intro section I basically just played with the powers I had (warp, singularity, and biotic punch), with only a pistol the recharge times were extremely fast, even at a low level.

I only saw a couple of video of the demo, but the power cooldown in the 1st gameplay scenario is extremely short. Having 4 weapons must impact the recharge time greatly, but an adept would probably run with small guns or mod them so that they don't cripple your usage of biotics or tech.

Yup, same message - can't be launched.

Well, looks like we gotta wait for a lucky code or all the way till Tuesday - dummy accounts, USB sticks and discs won't work with this - luckily I only use re-writables for demos.

Should've done the Expertzone thing, but this was totally unexpected with this demo thing.

I'm happy that Bioware made it quicker to see Shepard's face in-game. In ME1 and 2, I hated that they put in unskippable cutscenes that you had to watch before finding out that Shepard looks hideous in-game when they otherwise looked fine in character creation.
