Hull breach rectified! Ha they certainly fixed the connection issue, but they didn't fix the buy-all-dlc-with-ration-seals-issue...

i get the feeling they didn't mean it quite that literally when they said we would be able to buy everything with ration seals

Hi citr3x!

 

At first, download and install the latest version of Origin at www.origin.com/download (and make sure you have your Origin account ready as well).
Close the origin client and go directly to you origin folder  C:\Program Files\Origin Games. Run the origin.exe in this folder with a rightclick -> run as administrator.  Please add Origin.exe and Deadspace3 to the exception list of your firewall/antivirus software.

 

This worked out in the most cases, if not, try to deactivate your firewall/antivirus software and/or check the online ports of your connection:

TCP: 80, 443, 9988, 20000-20100, 22990, 17502, 42127
UDP
: 3659, 14000-14016, 22990-23006, 25200-25300

For specific instructions on how to open your ports, please visit http://www.portforward.com/ or contact your router manufacturer.

 

Please let us now, if this problem after this workaround still exist.

 

Please keep us updated!

Dead Space 3 Limited Edition PC hanging

★★ Newbie

Hello:

 

I just downloaded and installed DS3 Limited Edition via Origin client.

 

The game starts fine but hangs at "Scanning for downloaded content". How may I proceed past this?

 

Thanks.

Normally the game scans for what you have installed / what can be installed and then just proceeds. Titlescreen -> Save Screen -> Menu. Everything, excluding having to select your save, happens automatically.

Thank you for your reply.

 

Yes. I understand the proper sequence but unfortunately, the game quickly progresses past the title screen, the search for game saves, and then hangs (does not progress past) the searching for downloadable content screen. The progress symbol continues to rotate but the game does not move on. Any ideas?

This forum is certainly full of bug reports (which nobody bothers to fix), but I myself haven't heard of this one yet. Just infinite loading? Well, I hate to hand out obvious advice such as "re-install the game", but it is all I can advice at the moment since this is a new one. Perhaps others will have a solution. Try re-starting a little and etc.

 

My apologies, but it is more advice then most you'll find within a short amount of time.

Again, thanks for your kindness in replying.

 

I have re-installed the game once already but still have the same issue. I will give it a day and see what more I can do tomorrow.

 

Thanks again.
