Stuck on loading screen Battlefield 4 PC

★★★★ Novice

The last couple of days I can only join empty servers. When I try to join servers with players in, I get the infinite loading screen.

Re: Stuck on loading screen Battlefield 4 PC

Hi Hokahey12 try this for the fix.

 

Run the game as Administrator:
Go to the Origin games folder (C:\Program Files (x86)\Origin Games\Battlefield 4) and find Bf4.exe. Right click it and go to PROPERTIES, then COMPATIBILITY and check the box next to RUN THIS PROGRAM AS ADMINISTRATOR.
Do the same with BF4_x86.exe as well.

Run Origin as Administrator:
Go to C:\Program Files (x86)\Origin and right click on Origin.exe and go to properties. Then go to compatibility tab and check the box next to RUN AS ADMIN.

Disable Origin in game:
In Origin - Application settings - Origin in Game - disable Origin in game

Origin Cloud Storage turn it off
Origin, settings, General

If all this fails to fix it then try this...

BF4 folder in my documents holds game configs and screen shots even if BF4 is installed on different drive. When you uninstall BF4 it does NOT remove this folder. So when you install the game again you can still have the same issues.

1- Go to my Documents and remove BF4 folder place it on your Desktop or trash.
2- Be warned you do have to set up your in game settings again.
3-Repair BF4
4- When done go test your game.

Hi smallboy944, I am not sure what you are saying ....Launched it with a photo then pressed enter it wont load..... Are you doing it this way?.... To start game open origin, go to games tab, right or left mouse click on BF4 and click on play this will open battle log then you can find a server to join. 

 

Edit... And you are very welcome TastyHraje happy to help you.

Hello,
 
I have the same issue and tried what you suggested but still it doesnt work. It is still stuck on the loading screen.
 
Do you think would there be any other reason for this issue?

After doing al these you mentioned you need to restart your computer. At least it was like that in my case.

I've tried both methods and both don't work... I guess I'm not going to be doing anything.
