nicadopolas Hey there, I know this is an old post, but I tried this method with Titanfall, to no avail.
I did everything exactly as specified, the files are in the right location, but still the button says 'Download'.

Any thoughts?

Thanks, Danz207

You can delete the installer folder but just remember if you ever want to install those games again you'll have to re-download the installers again.

Edit: delete it through Origin.

truestorybro545 I did it and had some issues, but Origin has an install repair system, so it worked out just great. I would suggest that right after loading the games into your "Origin Games" folder.
