Battlefield 3 Crash - Help :(

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I am having technical difficulties with trying to get Battlefield 3 to start...

Alright so I'm having a problem I have been searching up on all day, and I finally asked for some help (I usually try to fix problems myself). The problem is (sort of) common; I download the game through Origin, and when I launch through Battlelog it it just says "Initializing"... and doesn't stray from that message. I know others have ways to solve that problem (which none of the solutions work for me), BUT my situation is a little different.

When I install Battlefield 3 it installs it into "C:\Users\Gabe\Desktop\Games\Battlefield 3\Game\Battlefield 3™" for some odd reason, probably because I had old data back there or something (?).And I think Origin is launching from wherever the hell it is supposed to launch from, instead of the folder Battlefield is really located at. But if I move the "Battlefield 3™" folder to "C:\Program Files (x86)\Origin Games", it doesn't even initialize.

Multiplayer, co-op, and campaign do not work for me. I am about to give up on this roughly 12 hour quest to get Battlefield 3 to work, and if no one can help me I will just wait out a patch or just simply give up.

One last very important note... I bought the Battlefield 3 key from some CD-Key-Warehouse website for $20, after some extensive research on the legitimacy on the site. No one has apparently ever had a problem with the Battlefield 3 key, according to some 500 reviews. I used the key on Origin, and it installed a Russian-only copy, which I will fix once I can get this damn game to work.

Thanks for the help!

P.S.
Please don't tell me to do the following...
-Restart
-Reinstall/Repair Battlefield 3
-Reinstall Web Tools (Required to get Battle-log to work)
-Use different browser
-Block Origin
-Screw with firewalls
