[Solution] Cant Join Any servers in Battlefield 3 Beta  

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
Okey guys,

I had the follow problem in bf3 beta, i couldnt join any server, i even waited a hour to join a server, but no result. So i found a solution to fix that problem!

1) Go to the location where Origin installed battlefield. This folder is called: "Béta Battlefield 3" (grave accent on first e). Now this is the problem; the Windows registry system can't cope with the 'e' with the grave accent, so change it to a normal 'e': "Beta Battlefield 3".

2) Next press the Windows key + r on your keyboard and enter "regedit" (without the "), press enter. Now navigate to: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE -> SOFTWARE -> Wow6432Node -> EA GAMES. Click on 'Bf3 Beta'. On your right you see a row of information where the 3rd and 4th row are filepaths, and there the annoying 'é' is back! Change the é's with the grave accent to normal 'e' in both filepaths and close the registry editor.

You should be good to go! No restart needed, battlefield will work also with quickstart

Goodluck boys smile.gif

I have the same issue, it finds me a server, reserves a slot, then sits at the "Joining Server" screen indefinately. I don't have a grave accent E either.

Nope, all My E's check out...in fact, the folder that origin used is named "Battlefield 3 Beta", not "Beta Battlefield 3" I tried changing it to what you originally had and it just failed all together.
