Hi there,

 

Just been looking for a solution to this problem since i'm having it as well, it started with the ghost update and it's the same with pools, i've also noticed the same thing happening with one of the aspirations (can't remember which one though), that's a bit more annoying since you can't actually know what the task you have to complete is...but anyway. I'm in France, my game is in french and so was my origin client. I tried turning it to english US and repairing but had no luck with that. i checked and it says the strings file was last updated on august 14. oh and also i don't use any mods.

 

So yeah hopefully we'll find a way to fix it soon, it's ok for now but if that same thing happens with the new career update it's gonna be frustrating.

French, that's a new one.

 

Do you have the disc version or Origin download ?

Then I think reinstalling is the last straw.

 

Use these instructions so you don't have to redownload everything: http://help.ea.com/en/article/backing-up-and-restoring-your-origin-games/

Newest Patch - All new "pool" actions do not have proper names.

★★★★ Newbie

Hi everyone,

 

I have recently updated to the latest patch that includes pools.

All new actions do not have proper names.

For example, if i click on the pool the options: *** BE97AC03 *** and *** DC87FEF7 *** come up, which appear to be swim and swim laps.

The same thing happens for the splash action. (and possibly others I have not found yet?)

 

I have not had this problem at all previously or with any options that are not from the latest patch.

 

Does anyone have the same problem or know how to fix this?

 

Thanks!
