Hello. I have a problem with downloading games on origin. I discovered that Apex Legends was free earlier today, so I grabbed it to put in my library. I tried to download it a bit later, and it got stuck on 0% with the word "Preparing..." under it.
I don't know if my hardware just isn't good enough for the game, because I know I have the amount of space (35.9 GB - 22 GB = 13.9 GB left over) and RAM (5.92 RAM usable) for the game to run. My processor hardware is (exactly as written in the computer settings) an "AMD Ryzen 3500U with Radeon Mobile GFX 2.10 GHz".
If my hardware isn't good enough, it's just a bug, or any other answer, it would help greatly.
(edit, a picture of the problem I described has been added)

Hey @NovaYT1234 great to hear that it is working for you, if the issue occurs again and the download is stuck then you need to ensure that your firewall and anti-virus are not blocking Origin and that you also have the ports for Origin open.
The ports to open are:
You can also try turning off the routers firewall to see if it helps.
