There seems to be two issues here, one where the first loading screen freezes completely and one where the ticker keeps going and the game never actually crashes.


Loading forever (ticket never stops) Issue:



Game FREEZES at first loading screen:


Anyone having this issue, could you please try the following and reply with the results.

  • Repair Install in Origin (Right click on the game portrait, choose Repair Install).
  • Turn off the Origin in-game overlay (application settings - in game - uncheck enable origin in game.
  • If that doesn't work, attempt a clean boot and try to run the game through Origin. Clean boot instructions are in a previous post in this thread.

Ok my game is now working


  • I unistalled Origin, downloaded a new setup and installed it.
  • Opened the game the game and now works (at the beginning it worked but w/o online features because origin in-game overlay was not checked)

The clean boot did not work, I tried that yesterday. I hope that my solution helps other people with the same problem


BTW.... If anyone wants to add me to origin to play online you are welcome to do it.

While this is also happening to me I found a work around.  Once the game starts to load you have about 2 seconds before is crashes in the background.  As soon as you start to load the game Alt+Tab.  This will force the game into Windowed mode.  From there I've had no further issues being able to play.

After you crashed your car, did the game crash to desktop or did you have to ctrl-alt-delete? Did it give any error message?


And again, sorry if I'm repeating this, have you tried uninstalling/reinstalling Origin or turning off the in-game overlay?
