So I ran my Advanced System Care 5, then uninstalled and started from scratch - game patched fine. About to hit the "play" button.
*edit* - Opening cinematics work fine...Gameplay is fine as well! HOLY SWEET ****! 50 FPS! I was lucky to get 20 a couple months ago! I don't know what Bioware did with that last update but my machine is running it SO MUCH SMOOTHER!
I'm glad to hear that the issue has been resolved.
Hope you enjoy playing!
