Product: Star Wars Battlefront II
What is your issue related to? General
Summarize your bug If I don't delete the BootOptions settings file in settings folder before launching the game won't start up,it just loads for a few minutes and then just crashes. When I do delete the file the game starts up just fine and plays smooth.
What is your gamertag/PSN ID/EA Account name? WraithDemonSoul
How often does the bug occur? Every time (100%)
Can you tell us the date (MM/DD/YYYY) that you saw the bug? 11/9/2017
What time did you see the bug? (HH:MM AM/PM)
In what game mode did the bug occur? Galactic Assault
What is your time zone?
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Just start the game without deleting the BootOptions file in Documents/STAR WARS Battlefront II/settings
What happens when the bug occurs? If i don't get rid of this file before launching the game, the first loading screen will freeze up and crash. When I do get rid of the file before launching, the game loads in just fine and I can play as long as I want until I quit out and have to delete the file again.
What do you expect to see? I expect not to have to go into the game settings and delete the file every time i want to play.
Please select your region North America
AMD or Nvidia Model Number Nvidia Geforce GTX 860m

I have a bunch of crashdumps but I can't attach MDMP/zip/or 7z files.

@YourBuddyGarrus Hi, thanks for the post. Can I check the actual text of the file that you see before you have to delete it. You can open the file with Notepad and just copy across the contents. 


I ask because the BootOptions file is pretty lightweight and there aren't a lot of variables to check for, hopefully we can just make an edit to the appropriate value then you'll be good to go.
