Yep, still happening. Nothing loading and if it does, it takes 10 minutes.  Games wont install. Launcher is just busted.  Have reinstalled many times. Going to try the Old version "fix" and see...Apparently they are aware of some issues with games not wanting to install but I feel like it is probably all related and not being fixed very fast at all...

HERE IS THE FIX!  Link to where I got it and the steps below so you don't have to click the link! I also clicked the checkbox for the launcher to install Beta Updates. Some combination of these things fixed it!

 

https://www.reddit.com/r/origin/comments/efkqg4/origin_needs_to_download_files_and_is_waiting_for/?u...

 

-Close Origin

-Windows + Tab + X

-Click "Computer Management"

-In the Left pane click "Services and Applications"

-In the middle pane double click "Services"

-Scroll down to "Origin Client Service" and double click it

-Under the "General tab" change the "Startup type" drop-down menu to "Disabled"

-Relaunch Origin

 

WHY CAN'T THE DEVS FIX THIS?!?!  SOME DUDE ON REDDIT MANAGED TO!!!!!!!!!!  Clear the fing cache...ffs...get your poop in a group EA!

@Yodamoo in the latest version of origin you can go into the application settings and choose "try the beta launcher", if all else fails you could give this a try. It did not completly solve the lag issues I was having, but it got better.

As I explained in my previous post, the current state of the origin launcher will bassicly NEVER work butter smooth compared to other game launchers as the origin launcher is nothing more then a glorified web browser ( you visit the origin website with your launcher ).

Why can't you agree on fact that origin SUCKS. Also all the game in its library sucks. Instead of blaming PC's, GET BETTER.
