I want to have another Mass Effect 1 playthrough. I had a disk copy of the game ages ago and put the cod into Origin, which added it to my library. I've played it digitally ever since.
A recent driver, patch or Windows update or Securom-thingy has made it unplayable; I get 15fps outside on a 4770k/AMD 390 and then my 3700k/1070ti. It also plays at 15fps on my intel netbook.
I dug out my disk copy but the activation servers have been shut down. I remember being careful to redeem activations whenever I uninstalled it so I know there will be unused activations available, but but now it fails to find the server at all. Yay for DRM.
Has anyone had any luck getting it to work properly on old (or new) systems?
