Re: Game crashes when I go to Sparta

Ye I also bought it from Origin digital edition a couple of days ago, I used to have it on my xbox 360 but since I got rid of my console I decided to get it on pc aswell since I really like it.

 

Im starting to believe this might be a Orgin download problem aswell.

I bought the trilogy download from Amazon as well. Does sound more and more like files are corrupt on Origin's side, hopefully they have a way of fixing it. Wish I had physical disc to install at this point, seems like those who do don't have the crash problem.

Was there a recent game update? I don't see an update, but based on these posts it's definitely a recent problem.

 

I'll try to replicate the problem and I will post my findings soon. I will also forward the issue to the EA overlords.

 

Update

 

I landed on Edolus in Sparta and the game did not crash. I have the following specs:

 

AMD Radeon R9 270X (14.12)

Intel core i5 4690K

8GB DDR3 RAM

Windows 7 64-bit

 

I tested the Origin digital download of ME1, not from the Trilogy package.

Just a quick reminder that Liara is on Therum, not Edolus. There's a sidemission on Edolus, but in the meantime, avoid it.

When did you download ME1 from Origin, Fred?

Thank you for the posts. It looks like most people seeing this issue are using the Trilogy.

Edit: removing some preliminary test steps.

Testing on a machine with a GTX 770 using the 520.12 and 347.88 drivers, I wasn't able to replicate this, so I suspect the issue lies elsewhere. Also we have reports from users with AMD cards too. 

Thanks.

Hi David, thanks for responding. I have already tried disabling Origin in game and it did not work. I just double checked and it is still disabled. My version of Origin is 9.5.12.2862 - 364867.

Thanks. I just tried to replicate on a test machine but it worked fine. My Origin build number is the same as yours, suggesting that this can be ruled out as a factor. 

 

This hasn't found the source of the issue, but it's very helpful to swiftly rule things out.

Hello David I have this problem with the planets mentioned in this post and I did not buy the Trilogy, only Mass Effect One on Origin. So I do not believe that the trilogy pack is the problem.

 

My origin version is 

Version 9.5.12.2862 - 364867

Thank you @rm8083 that is very good to know. 

I don't think there's a need for any more Origin versions so i'll edit that out of the initial post.
