Just Got BF3 But Can't Get it to Work! :(

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
So guys I got BF3 the other day and left my computer up all night to download it. I got up bright and early hoping to play some but as soon as I go on Battlelog and click 'join a server' it just gets stuck on the 'initializing' phase. I tried it again with task manager open and I can see the BF3.exe on it using around 34MB of RAM but it disappears after like 5 seconds. I've tried every possible workaround I can think of and I just can't get it working!

I would be SO GRATEFUL if one of you guys could help me out! smile.gif

I've got the latest version of Google Chrome and Origin along with Battlefield 3 installed.

You could try a repair install. Right click on game in origin. Also, disable UPnP on your modem if you don't want to have to deal with disconnections..

Make sure that you're using Origin Beta to download and install it.

Hey guys I managed to fix it, turns out the TM thing on the Battlefield 3 folder was the thing causing it, I had to fool around with the registry to get it to work though. smile.gif
