DA:I crashes on PC after clicking "Play" due to Origin update on 11/25/2014

★★ Newbie

As explained in the title, the game crashes with a Windows error: "Dragon Age: Inquisition has stopped working" that occurs immediatly after hitting play in Origin. This problem began immediatly after installing an origin update on 11/25/2014. Disabling origin allows inquisition to run confirming this is an Origin error.

 

For others with this problem, go to: 

My games > DA:I > Click on the letters "Dragon Age^TM: Inquisition >  Game Properties > Check "Disable Origin for this game" 

 

For me this allowed it to run. My system is a Windows 7 64 bit.

Thanks for the updated, SolomanKanz.

 

Just to clarify for anyone else looking at home to disable Origin In-game, click on "Origin" in the top left, then Application Settings.

Then choose the Origin tab and untick/tick the relevant box to disable or re-enable Origin In-Game.

I had the exact same problem, I too run the game on Windows 7 64bit, disabling Origin in-game helped.

Thank you very much for posting this Confusedmileyvery-happy:

Hey, just to help troubleshoot this and help avoid locking folks out of MP, if you're affected by this can you try restarting with a Clean Boot then see if the game will run with In-Game turned on?

1) Open Origin

2) Then press Origin on the top left side.

3) Press Application Settings

4) Press Origin in games

5) Look on "general" and remove arrow from "Enable Origin in game".

Hi.

 

I already disabled origin in game as per suggested but whenever I start DAI Origin keeps popping up... Any ideas what I'm missing?

 

Thank you.

Ah , I've been an idiot. I searched the actual Origin files, instead of launching Origin itself. Thanks a bunch!
