Now I'm confused as fuck.

There's a ban on third party software.
But, some third party software is allowed.

Some similar choices.

I had an Asian girl to begin with but it didn't work.

I have two pics but I haven't enabled the steam overlay so I don't have hosting for it yet.

As far as I know it is a forum wide ban on all third party software that gives PlugY its bad name but there is a certain amount of hypocrisy in it.  The SPF has been allowed to develop and promote certain utilities (ATMA/GoMule, RWM/RRM, various version switchers, run counters) without hindrance but there seems to be an ideological objection to PlugY.  The funny thing was that you could use it if you were playing Median XL, but you were not allowed to mention the program by name; it promotes its use you see!!  The most resent schism at the SPF really brought these (and more) issues to a head.

Actually, for Anthem, think much more of it as a Destiny-like.

I have not modded the game at all.

And yes I am playing it on a PC.  I think Max is our only consistent platform player.

The one thing I think that they might not like with PlugY is that you can reset skills anytime.  Other than that, after playing it for a couple weeks there really isn't much of a difference to me.  I actually had the diablo clone spawn in a game the other day, but my character was much too weak to make a dent in him.

So what's the deal with PlugY and the SPF? Is it an actually an issue the SPF have or is it that the website admin's don't like it?

I remember "back in the day" that Ron (Greybeard) went to the wall to defend the use of ATMA by the SPF, when behind the scenes the Admin and other Mods were discussing that it was a "duping" program and whether to ban its use. That ATMA is still accepted today I suspect is in part to Greybeard sticking to his guns on behalf of the community.

Also, I'm pretty sure you're on PC, so I assume you've looked into mods to sort out minor shortcomings? There's quite a few quality of life mods that help with issues people have with the game.

The lag on the tempest is god awful.  A lot of people get with no clue what is causing it.

:( Weird. Unfortunate. Haven't seen it.

There are all sorts of things that aren't right with how the game flows. 

Yeah, could be. There's a "recommended optimal" path of progress put together by some folks at Reddit that works to make the game flow smooth (in terms of quests and all that), eliminating a lot of the disjointedness that people complain about, and maximizes the chances of actually beating the game by moving a lot of fluff content to the epilogue when you can faff about to your heart's content. I'd post the specifics, but it might be mildly spoilery? Anyway, it's the approach I'm taking this time. It seems promising.

And yes...they have abandoned this game.  A sad end to Mass Effect.

"End" is a bit of a stretch. They did declare this one done but I'm extremely dubious it's the end of Mass Effect as a franchise.  Unless Anthem bombs and EA shutters Bioware over it.

I am not holding my breath for Anthem.  It seems they had these grand ideas for a Mass Effect styles Left for Dead multiplayer.  Now it seems they  are trying to add single player to it.

I haven't paid a whit of attention to it, but people I know who follow the industry and stuff pretty closely seem to think there's a lot of hope there. There's a place in the market for what they're doing with it, and since they delayed it to make it better (so I heard) it suggests it's not getting the Andromeda "push it out the door" treatment, too.

I will remain cautiously optimistic. Bioware has produced too many of my favorite games for me to count them out just yet over one that didn't live up to the hype...
