I just bought the game via Origin and downloaded the game. As soon as I start the game and press start the games gets stuck in the loading screen.... I unistalled the game and re-downloaded it and the it keeps getting stuck in the same loading screen
Solved! Go to Solution.
For those who are still experiencing this issue, I will try to list below a recap of different workarounds. Some of them were provided by community members and I hope this will help you all.
If you have already tried these steps without success, please let us know.
Also cosmicf posted a message about system requirements and you will find below the recommendations since this is also an important information:
1. Launch Origin Client and Login to user account
2. Click on the Origin Dropdown Menu and select the Application Settings Option
3. Click the IN GAME Tab and uncheck the “Enable Origin In Game” Box to disable the IGO
4. Attempt to Launch the game
fab931025 posted a workaround which involves updating Origin
fraserlaserr refined the workaround here:
tutarr posted a message informing that reinstalling his video card driver solved the loading issue:
I solve the problem of the loading. Its simple, reinstall the driver nvidia in full defaults... But the sound of the Most Wanted 2012... pffff No sounds...
Our recommendation is to make sure you have the latest drivers available for your video and sound card.
Another workaround involving the friends list has been provided by 1april.
However the friend list should not cause any issue since this has been fixed with the last game update too, but I will post here the workaround as an additional information. If you think this can still cause an issue, don't hesitate to inform us.
Minimum System Requirement:
Recommended System Requirement:
cosmicf I have read your message and indeed Windows 8 is not listed on the system requirements.
same problem here too:
i'm running windows 8 x64 pro
and the game endlessly loads at: 627,7MB (task manager) in the loading screen after the "press start" button
the game still takes from 4 to 20% of processor usage
hope you can get this fixed, or get us a workaround
Several things need to be noted. If you can append a DirectX diagnostic to your post it'd greatly help the tech-heads. I do note however that this game will not work, and even possibly install, through the 'Metro' system/screen. A fair number of system functions aren't loaded when using the 'Metro' screen from what I understand.
Funny things... I could make it work on my desktop but the online functionallity goes away (using a stupid "Crack" from the internet) but I don't like this since I bought the game to play it online. Second, my game actually runs on my laptop just fine, and my laptop is "worse" than my desktop.
Have you seen any error message? Can you provide information about your system please? Is anyone else is experiencing difficulty with the online feature?
You mentioned that the game is working on one of your machine so this is maybe due to a setting such as Anti-virus rights? Have you tried some troubleshooting steps like running the game as an administrator?
My desktops specs: Intel i7 950 @ 3.33, Nvidia GTX 465 overclocked, 12 GB DDR3 (Doesn't work, has infinite loading screen after the press start menu)
My laptop specs: Intel® Core™ i7 2630QM, NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 560M, 8 GB DDR3 (It works here)
On my desktop I was able to make it work by downloading a NFS13.exe from the internet, but it disables the online feature (which I reversed quickly because I do not want to play the game like that)
When I try to run NFS13.exe as an administrator it says "Origin is not installed, and is required to play your game. Please reinstall Origin", but Origin is open... So I went and select run as admin all the time and opened through Origin and the infinite loading screen persists. I do not think it is any antivirus rights since I have the same antivirus in both computers, and the game opens but sits in the loading screen after the press enter menu.
There is no error message, just the infinite loading screen.
Got pretty much the same problems as kerimkj. And if you check youtube there is a video of a guy that has the same problem but on the Xbox. So it seems to be a problem with the game, which means we have to wait for a patch or play the game with online features disabled, because I tried it with a different .exe like kerimkj said and it worked for me too.
It happens in the first loading screen after the press start menu (the first load screen with cars in the background and tips in the bottom of the screen, which runs forever)
