origin messing with me :(

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I was Downloading Crysis 2 To my new RAID partition and The download was heading towards 2 hours when i Realized That I still had the installs in a different Drive. I installed used my code and whatnot. I launched the Game and realized that i needed the Game saves too.

I exited and Stopped the download from Origin hoping that somehow the game would be found (I did install in same directory of my other Origin games).

Once I found the game saves I tried finding the new Directory but nothing!
I went To origin and hit "Refresh my games" and My library showed that Crysis 2 wasn't installed.

I did Start> other programs> games and I noticed that Crysis 2 had no icon. I Double Clicked it and it doesn't launch.

Back on Origin Burnout Paradise and BF3 don't show as installed. I looked for them where they Should have been installed but they are gone! what gives??

Origin sucks. I had to reinstall it because every time I would try to launch, it would take up 25% CPU usage and then just crash. Looking under free games, I installed Zuma's Revenge, which was actually a free trial and now I can't take the stupid game off my list. You also can't have Origin start minimized when it launches even though so many people recommended it.

Origin is terrible, I hate it so much compared to Steam and wish I could've preordered BF3 on Steam instead of Failigin.

A crysis install on a drive is (as far as i know) probably different than an install from origin.

1. If it crashes, it could be a lot of problems. Uninstall and download it again
2. Yea the whole not being able to remove games is pretty stupid but I will see if something will be done about that
3. Can't have origin start minimized ? is this a real question ?
4. Go play bf3 on steam if you want

Well I'm not having bad CPU usage. Just this game Shenanigans.
Origin is new so I expect a lot of updates before it works correctly >.<

this is what i meant. It sounded like i had a run on sentence but no.
look at Burnout, BF3 and Crysis 2

as for the second response, Well I had the Disc as an image on a different Drive. I basically installed from a disc.

You signed up to reply to this thread? By reading my post, you should've realized I already did uninstall it and reinstall it... Point is the software is crap, I did nothing to change my install. I've never had Steam do this to me... Second point, glad you have some common sense. Third, how is that not a real question? I would like to have Origin launch at startup since I'm going to be playing BF3 frequently (and did during the beta) and I do not want to be greeted with Origin popping up on my desktop. If it would automatically hide to the tray I would be in business. I can do it with Xfire, AIDA64, Steam, Afterburner, and virtually every other program I use so it's pathetic EA can't put this feature into Origin. Especially considering the thread I linked to has 6 pages of users requesting this simple feature to be added. Last point, BF3 is not available on Steam Even if you add a non-steam shortcut it still needs Origin IIRC and Battlelog, and then Steam ingame overlay doesn't work (at least with my experience during the beta).
