I felt quite nostalgic these days and wanted to run a full playthrough from ME1 to ME3, always on Insanity.

But then when I reached the last instalment I remembered how annoying is to always fight with only one bar of health because differently than ME2 we don't have a full health regen, only the most damaged energy bar.

I was looking for a way to tweak that behaviour only in ME3, after all, I've played several times in this 10 years timespan since the first title. It's possible, yes, but even a Husk kills you. >.<

Since usually these settings are configured in the Coalesced.bin I started there, but without much success.

I tried to change the entry SFXGame.SFXModule_damageplayer\healthregenpct (that's how ME3 Coalesced Utility shows to me) from 0.25f to 1.0, 1.0f and 100, repacking the file and restarting the game after each change, but the health doesn't regenerate as expected.

I didn't want to download one of those mega tweak packs form Nexus to not risk making my playthrough super-difficult (or super-easy). It's just this single píece of "immersion" if you call it that, that I don't really like.

Anything else I have to do?

    what you are trying to do was not intended or explicitely allowed by the devs, so it has nothing to do here. Arqade is not meant to help in hacking games, in any way. Commented May 2, 2018 at 13:48

    You could always just play on a lower difficulty level. Especially if your goal is simple nostalgia - what are you trying to prove? I mean, if it's so important that you play on Insanity all the time, then surely any effort to modify the game would ruin that goal. After all, you're not really playing on Insanity anymore.

    @KevinTheGreat Because there a lot of things that the devs don't allow, but we as gamers have to do ourselves in order to get certain things working. I'm not even talking about this question in particular, but for example there are file modifications that are made to other games to that we can still play them on modern machines. This is just one example of why these types of questions are not a shut-and-close case.

    @V4karian We're not lawyers here. We won't help with piracy, or online cheating, but modding for single player use isn't a big deal, I think. Honestly, we're not the dev police. We don't enforce their rights.
