[PC] BF4 Battlelog not working properly, Plugin problem

★★★★ Novice

Hi there!

 

After starting the game, Battlelog opens, but from there I can neither access the serverbrowser nor the forum. In detail, when I click on "Serverbrowser" (or Favorites), it just continues loading and won't ever stop (just like when the servers are experiencing heavy load). I assume that there is a problem with the plugin (Note: When I downloaded the latest patch it didn't tell me to update it). I already deinstalled the plugin and tried to download the newest one. Unfortunately, after clicking on "download" it just says "installing" but it doesn't. I can't even find it in the download folder, so it seems I'm pretty much stuck here.

 

Additionally, I imported and installed the newest plugin from another computer and it still does not work.

 

PS: My internet connection is just fine. Loading at the same speeds as always.

Re: [PC] BF4 Battlelog not working properly, Plugin problem

For plugin issues, try this steps:

 

- Uninstall the Plugin (in control panel>uninstall) then delete the containing folder placed in: C:\Program Files (x86)\Battlelog Web Plugins

 

Fix for Mozilla FireFox:

- Install the latest plugin
- go to Addons (Firefox menu) -> Plugins
- Search for ESN AND Battlelog
- Set both to: always activated
- close firefox, start it again and it should be fine then

 

For Chrome:

-Clear Browsing Data ( Settings/Privacy )
-Reinstalling the plugin by logging to Battlelog again
-In the search bar typing the following command: chrome://plugins
-Checking the box Always allowed for ESN Sonar API and Battlelog Game Launcher
-Restarting the Browser
-Log back into Battlelog via Origin (Play from Battlefield4 icon )
-Join a Server

 

For Internet Explorer 11
-Restart IE 11
-From Internet Options/General tab -> Clear Browsing data -> Delete button
-From Security tab, slide the bar to bottom -> Medium Protection
-In Trusted Sites -> .battlefield.com should be added along with battlelog.battlefield.com/bf4/ and battlelog.battlefield.com/bf3/
-It will require a System Restart in order for the 7 step to be applied.
-Log in again into Battlelog and download again the plugin.
-Join a server.

I'm using Firefox and followed every step correctly. It still isn't working unfortunately...

 

Is there anything more I can do?

I tried Opera, the Serverbrowser + Forums work now. But I'm still facing problems. When I try to join a server, following errors occur : 

 

"You were disconnected from EA online.Soccer ball"   and

 

"Could not communicate with BF4. Please use the task manager to close it down."

 

I already tried to do the same thing you advised me before (deleting the Web Plugin folder and reinstalling the plugin), rebooting, signing out and back in again and various other things I found on the net that I thought I was capable to do.

 

PS: Thanks for helping me and not letting me down :D

It's seems like you're an expert at this, so I was wondering if you have a soulution to the Origin problem:

"Could not connect to the server please try again in a few minutes"

I have looked up 20 different threads and nothing works, so I can't get access to Battlefield 4 Multiplayer.

Thanks!

@ImFlameZ I suggest you try this, for some this has solved similar issues.

1 - Log into your modem / router
2 - Turn OFF UPNP.
3 - Turn off PC UPnP Service:
4 - Press: Windows-button a window should pop up. Write: "services.msc" (without the ") then press enter.
5 - In the list of services, scroll down to "UPnP Device Host", click it and press "Stop service". Now do the same thing but with the service "SSDP Discovery".
6 - Exit the window and go to control panel-> Network and Internet-> Network and Sharing Centre-> Change advanced sharing settings (to the left)-> Under "network discovery" select to turn off network discovery
7 - Save your changes

And try this also,

Please enable the following online ports on your connection:
TCP: 53, 88, 3074
UDP: 53, 88, 3074
For specific instructions on how to open your ports, please visit http://www.portforward.com/ or contact your router manufacturer.

Could you please provide us some details about your internet connection?
