On the PC steam version, doesn't appear to be in the game anymore. No exp triggers after firing the laser

Okay, today is 11/13/18

Playing on my X1.

I used the XP glitch and went from level 7 or so to 50.

After I got to level 50 I kept trying to do the exploit but it wouldn't give anymore XP.

I'm playing the Mass Effect Trilogy version of ME1, which has Bring Down the Sky DLC on the disc.

Not sure if it's a bug or if this is normal.

Just wanted anyone who is reading this thread to know the current state of the glitch as the last person to post in this topic was 8 years ago.

Glitch still works. But apparently only up until level 50.
Currently playing : Gems of War (X1), Mass Effect (X1), NBA2K18 (X1), Diablo 3(X1), Super Mario World (SNES)

My guess there would be that the data file which stores your achievements to calculate bonuses didn't get transferred from your 360, if you even did something like that. Cause on a fresh game, you have to beat it once before your characters can level past 50.

Yep. I simply forgot that you have to finish the game once to earn XP past 50.

You can continue to use the Therum XP glitch to get from level 50-60.

Personally I think the glitch is pretty pointless as I got to level 50 simply playing the whole game as intended on my first effort and I'm pretty sure I pointed this out in one of the Mass Effect topics. Anyone working towards all the achievements will have no need for the glitch.
I may very well be the oldest member of the site, but I am far from the dumbest :)
I would say the glitch helps if you want to do a new playthrough and get up to 50 quicker sooner. That's what I did when I started over for trilogy playthrough.
Using this exploit over the past two days(4 in the whole month), across three(four) Sheperds.

All three took about 5 hours and 40 mins or so, to go from level 10/11 to level 57. With an average of 615 saves each(lowest was 612 and highest was 617).
On my third run with the exploit. I loaded the initial save from just before I activate the Laser to start the glitch and I was already earning the Xp. It was kind of weird. I had leveled up just before making the save and had been using the exploit the entire day before, so...

However in the future I plan on doing this 3 more times for a Sentinel, Infiltrator, and another Adapt. At the start of this month I initially did this with an Adapt I created back in December and kind of forgot about. However, I had some left over Birthday money and grabbed the digital version on sale. So I can confirm this exploit works with the digital 360 version. Have not tried it on the Xone, yet.

Edit: Forgot, Level 37 is the Devil. The one for you and me.
