AMD Server timeout & crash fix (fx series)

[ Edited ]

step 1 - open apex legends

step 2 - open windows services by searching "services" using the windows home button

step 3 - stop windows audio endpoint builder (its near the bottom)

step 4 - start windows audio (its right above audio endpoint builder)

edit - you dont need to wait for the game to timeout / crash, and this does not seem to be working for most cpus outside of the fx series

 

so the game seems to be having issues with the windows sound service

 

no download required

 

it also helps keep the actual game after lobby stable no crashes yet - fx6300

 

Edit - this does not seem to be working for most cpu's outside of the fx series. Still might be worth a try tho

 

Edit 2 - Disabling the microphone before launching the game and enabling it after the game launches also seems to work as well you still cannot talk in game tho. Credit to @7JG26Godman for making the suggestion to test this

 

post fix update edit - changing the microphone drivers worked for awhile but eventually i got a timeout so the above method is still the only option

Today i discovered the problem of the huge DC problem dropping me out in 2 to 5 minutes. This is the Brazilian/LATAM server.

When i used a Windscribe VPN to Miami, my game just worked pefectly, no DC, no lag, no nothing. Please Fix the Brazilian/LATAM servers.

 

My ISP is: NET Virtua - Rio de Janeiro

I dunno if there's a route problem from my ISP to the BR/LATAM server or other things, but i'm tired of so much time out problem.

 

My PC specs are:

 

AMD FX 6300

8GB DDR3 Single Channel

AMD RX460 2 GB

Apex Legends connection to server timed out

★★★★ Novice

Hello all, I keep getting timed out whenever I am in the menu or in game. When in the menu I've seen that the menu freezes then times me out. It seems to happen when I'm in a party . When I time out in-game the game freezes then puts me back in the game then goes to the time out screen that has occurred.

 

Specs:

CPU: FX-6300

RAM: 8GB Single-channel (Idk if that matters or not)

GPU: AMD RX 470

People with FX-6300 seem to have this same issue. Including me. I’m getting an upgrade just for this damn game.

It seems to only happen to the FX series. I'm not too sure about the FX-8350 or other FX CPUS, but I know for sure that this does happen on every FX-6300.

I do not know if this works for other FX-6300 CPUS, but if you turn all your graphics settings to the lowest they can go it seems to fix it. I've played like 3-4 games without getting booted, but I have not tested this with parties.
