Can't join many games here. It keeps telling me to install Origin, which is already installed. Tried with Chrome and IE to no avail. Anyone having this problem?

Hi guys,

As we are trying to reproduce the issues some of you are having, we need to get more details - hence this thread. If you have PC specific issues with:

- General performance (that degrades and eventually fails)
- CPU stutters
- Crashes

Please post in this thread. Include as MUCH information as you can, and if you know of a way to trigger the issue, include that too (the more reproducable/clues the better).

We're looking for details like:
Windows version, Driver versions, Direct-X dumps, Settings files, Origin version, web browser etc.

We need to know:
What server, Map, When issues started (do they start during the same part of a game?), as much details as you can think of.

We also need to know:
What you have tried - did you reinstall the game, change drivers, tweak settings, or if you are running some special user.cfg file.

If you have HAD issues - but they are currently improved or GONE, please post here as well so we can gather more information about what could be helping people.

Please utilize the Performance monitor if you include videos etc, it helps alot!

Thank you, and lets get to the bottom of this.

Not sure if this belongs here, but here goes.

Played BF4 last week without issues, steady FPS at High/Ultra settings. Went away for a week and wanted to play yesterday. Started up a multiplayer game and this is what I experienced:

- Game is very slow to load
- When it is loaded the textures seems to be of low quality
- There is massive lag and tearing

At first I thought there was a problem with my Nvidia Geforce GTX680. It's a Gainward Phantom 4GB card. However, I started up Farcry 3 on Ultra and it runs smooth. I also tried CoD Blackops, same story, it runs great, hate the game though ;-)

Then I saw what the problem was, Battlefield just refuses to utilize my Nvidia card, it seems to be fixed on running on the integrated Intel HD GPU all of a sudden. As I said I was away for a week, my PC have been off and nothing have been installed or removed.

I have tried with 3-4 different Nvidia drivers and the problem stays the same. Yes, I completely remove the drivers before installing the new ones. I've done the same with the Intel HD graphics drivers and sound drivers.

I simply cannot get the game to use my Nvidia card. I've monitored the GPU activity (MSI Afterburner) and the GPU load is next none on the card.

Any help would be appreciated!

CPU: Intel i7 2600K @ stock
MB: ASRock Z68 Extreme 4
GPU: Gainward GTX 680 Phantom 4GB, NVidia
RAM: Corsair Vengeance 2x8 GB

All games runs perfect, except Battlefield 4. It did a week ago though...

i have exact the same problem

I was playing on my ps3 on the tunnel in zavod 311 there was a wall blocking where I could go. I was able to walk through it but not shoot through I. The wall is not supposed to be there this big is getting on my nerves. Also I helped with the bf4 community ops and I didnt get my reward for helping.

a good way to improve this game would be to remove these pathetic updates that are nothing but gimps the last 2-3 updates are targeting vehicles and ground weapons witch are now weak to the point of being usless

make hardcore mode ''hardcore'' again and not whatever it is now
not to mention the parachute suicide that never been fixed since the game was release

Great thread. I still think a lot of people are having crashes and FPS issues. Luckily, I have made two videos which apparently fixed these issues for thousands of people. I'm not saying that it will fix everything for everyone, but so far I believe these videos are pretty popular in the genre and I have gotten many friendly comments and likes for helping them. Besides, if you are still crashing after all this time, it's worth a shot right?

Here are the videos:
- How to Fix Battlefield 4 from crashing: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F8Mdfe9r3bQ [youtube.com]
- How to increase FPS in Battlefield 4: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F8Mdfe9r3bQ [youtube.com]

I even helped xFactorGaming out and he gave me a nice comment on one of these videos!

ps. Haters are welcome too, they just don't get any attention.
Please put a compass on hardcore

I just have to rant a little...

WHY DOES PUNKBUSTER SUCK SO MUCH?!?!?!?!
First, it says that it is not installed, THEN it fails at initializing, and on top of that, it kicks me for "No packet flow."
CAN WE PLEASE HAVE A DIFFERENT HACK DETECTOR?
Also, Campaign doesn't even fcking launch for me!
