I experienced a freeze in my battlefield 4 game on PC, and now I can not continiue playing. 
Its on the mission were you have to get the voicerecorder from the USS Titan, to find out what happend. I am in the room were you get the voicerecorder, I press E and grab the recoreder. Then Agent Kovic tries to take it from me, and the game freezes. I hear a loud crash in my headphones and the whole game stops. I tried reloading the checkpoint, but I start in the same room again. This time i already gave the recorder, but Kovic runs away through the roof, and i am stuk, al the doors are closed. I tried replaying the mission, had the same problem. I tried reinstaling the game, had the exact same problem.
I can not continiue playing now and there for am sad. I just bought this game last Saturday and have not even finishd a quarter of the game and I already can't continue.
Someone please help me!! I don't know what to do!

PS3 Rubber Banding issues are terrible the game is currently unplayable. Been that way since the June update. Was hoping the July one fixed it but nope.

I played Conquest on PS4 last night and still the sound of vehicles/tanks/boats is muted on starting a game in any of them. It takes about 20 seconds for the engine noise to kick in even though other game sound starts on time.

Hope you have fixed already but if not then make sure your controller is set to 'controller 1' before loading the game.


good luck

Please DICE, get on this or offer a solution. I already went through many of these threads.Nothing worked.
I can't play more than 5-10 min no sooner than I get blasted by this crash message:



More of the same but with different codes:



I HAVE DONE EVERYTHING THAT I THINK IS POSSIBLE TO DO.... PLEASE anyone with some real helpful advice?

I tried just about everyting:
- reinstalling GPU drivers, DXdrivers with 'clean' install (used DDU to totally remove all)
- Have the latest 4,5 Miscrosot Framework
- Run the game in Windows Clean Boot
- DELETED ALL .cab files (DXfiles) while leaving the .dll and .exe files (you should have 2 .dll and 1 .exe files)
  then reinstalled it C:\Program Files (x86)\Origin Games\Battlefield 4\__Installer\directx\redist
- Updated and Reinstalled PF countless times
- Delete the PROFSAFE_PROFILE file located at: Documents\Battlefield 4\settings to RESET it
- Locking  FPS to 60 in user.cfg
  ' gametime.maxvariablefps 60 "
- Cleaned most of the registry with CCleaner
- Tried to run sfc /scannow (seems to now work in Win 7)
- opened the NVidia Control Panel and changed PhySx to the card and the "Power management mode" from Adaptive to "Prefer maximum performance"
- Disabled CPU core parking utility
- Ran the game in windowed mode...yeah...YUCK
- and finally created a " user.cfg " file with the following info:

RenderDevice.Dx11Enable 1
RenderDevice.Dx11Dot1Enable 1
RenderDevice.Dx11Dot1RuntimeEnable 1
RenderDevice.TripleBufferingEnable 0
WorldRender.TransparencyShadowmapsEnable 0
WorldRender.MotionBlurEnable 0
WorldRender.MotionBlurForceOn 0
WorldRender.MotionBlurFixedShutterTime 0
WorldRender.MotionBlurMax 0
WorldRender.MotionBlurQuality 0
WorldRender.MotionBlurMaxSampleCount 0
WorldRender.SpotLightShadowmapEnable 0
WorldRender.SpotLightShadowmapResolution 256
WorldRender.LightTileCsPathEnable 0
RenderDevice.ForceRenderAheadLimit 0
PostProcess.DynamicAOEnable 0

...and placed in the BF4 root folder, i.e. the same folder that the BF4.exe is in.


PLEASE EA/DICE have some mercy and get on this. Don't let this be another error to ruin your reputation.

I don't understand it not annymore...I do have the latest windows updates + origin updates + BF4 updates + NVIDIA updates and I have lot of problems like:

1. Suddenly Blue screen...

2. It's so difficult to login when you start a game out of origin...sometimes I need to try up to 20 times to get logged in.

3. And it goes all slow, when I can start the game, most of them are allready playing. ==> Did not activated firewall (hard or software) and antivirus is even disabled!


When I play other games, I don't have problems, they just occur with BF4...

When I did start it now...I just had an update (latest update) and this update makes mine computers so NUTS that it every 15 minutes max. give a blue screen when I play it...pfff

Even the login goes so hard???? When I'm logged in into Origin, why I need to fill again mine username and password??? And why I need to try it for up to 20 times to get logged on? If you release updates, make it at least more updates I get, how more worse it comes....this is not funny annymore...



Only one thing works perfect...when I play offline....but that's boaring Frown


What do I need to do for fix this????


best regards,
