Mass Effect 3: SMN (Console Action Layout)
This is my first profile upload, so please bare with me if there are any snags along the way.
I began playing Mass Effect 3 with Errol's profile which I found intriguing, but a bit overly complicated. I decided to alter his original setup and set the controls up as close to the console version's controls as possible, but with the added bonus of shift buttons for easy access to all of your powers.
Please let me know if there are any issues. Please see the linked controller mapping for reference (Yellow text indicated functions when in Shifted Mode):
* (3/13/12: Made a slight update. You can now melee by pressing the right stick in while in shift mode. This should allow you to do running melees) *This had no real affect, but left it in.
* (3/16/12: Replaced Shift Mode Back function, removing Text Chat in favor of activating the Origin Overlay. This seemed like a more convenient command.)
* (3/21/12: Quick Slot 3 can now be activated by tapping Y. To toggle the command hud simply hold Y. The Quick Slot buttons have changed positions on the Y, B, A, and X buttons to keep the ordering clockwise.)

A quick note: I altered and re-uploaded the file. So if you downloaded this early on you may want to redownload and replace the old one.
You did a pretty good job for your first profile. Nicely done. How did you label that pic? It looks great, I'd like to use that for my profiles as well.

I just made the pic in Photoshop. When you create your next profile, let me know and I'll create one for you if I have time.

OK, I tested and it seems to be working correctly. I think you are just a little confused about the shift buttons. Everything with yellow text requires you to hold down a shift button, either Left Bumper, Right Bumper, or Left Trigger (Aiming down Sights). You can assign powers to Quick Slots by pressing Y and then clicking and dragging them from the section at the bottom middle of the screen into the Quick Slots you want them in at the top left of the screen. You can assign any Quick Slot to a squad mate's power when in a squad by clicking and dragging the powers you want to command into any Quick Slot location as well.

yea..but one thing i didnt get it
u said only works by Holding shift<<<comooooooon
u mean i have to play with gamepad then i get back to keyboard to hold shift
then play pad and shift pad and shift???
or u mean there's shift mode in gamepad profile?
EDIT: ooooooooooooh yea
u mean LT,LB+RB = shift mode? holding them then use the quick slot and etc right?
EDIT: ok i tryed holding shift mode LB or LT or RB and choosing ASHLY power on D-Pad Left..but nothing hppnd!!!!
what to do man?
u made it easier with Liara D-Pad Right power and taking enemy to the air and shooting them
but couldnt with Ashly ? why bro..? what to do

Are you holding the shift key down while pressing D-pad left? You have to hold the shift key down. And make sure you have a power in quickslot 7. There's no reason it shouldn't work...
