EA and Respawn name Titanfall’s worst issues on PC, start fixing them

Titanfall is already out in the US, and imminent in Europe.

Acknowledging the problem is the first step to something. Free chocolate? I forget. In any case, EA are on the right track. They’ve set up a help page for Titanfall, which they’ve filled with known issues, temporary workarounds, and assurances that Respawn are fixing what’s broken. Here’s some of the stuff that might be affecting you.

The worst issue you could encounter is the one customers are seeing when installing Titanfall on 32-bit Windows – operating systems it was never designed to be compatible with.

If you’re lucky enough to get beyond that, though, you might find that the install fails at 20% – in which case you’ll need to reinstall DirectX – or at 31% – which means there’s likely a problem with your downloaded Titanfall audio files. To fix the latter, head to right-click on Titanfall in Origin’s My Games tab and select ‘repair’.

Once installed, some players have struggled with connection errors.

“Exceedingly slow internet connections may cause an error message when trying to join a server or play your game,” write EA. “Some players may even get stuck in an infinite loop when trying to connect.

“Try resetting your router or modem by unplugging it from its power source for at least fifteen seconds and then plugging it back in the game.”

Once in-game, the key problem seems to be crashing when accepting an invitation to an in-progress match while in a match yourself – solved by not accepting an invitation to an in-progress match while in a match yourself.

Issues with certain Intel processors, meanwhile, can be solved those by downloading the Intel beta graphics drivers for Titanfall we mentioned the other day.

For the time being, that’s it. Have you encountered any problems running Titanfall that’ve stopped you running up walls? Do let us know in the comments.

Titanfall’s had a rocky launch in the US. Our Rob reckoned in his Titanfall review in progress that the Titans were no fun, except to shoot. He might change his mind yet though.
