@Rokebo73 Yes, the two copies are completely separate, I bought it as a gift through Steam, it was sent to my son's email and redeemed through his Steam, on his machine.
Steam doesn't even allow me to buy more than one copy for the same logged-in account, if the game is in my library, it only allows me to buy it as a gift.

@Rokebo73Hey.

Yes, I tested it, and it doesn't work.

First, the new EA App no longer has this properties option (for Steam items).

Second, I entered the parameter +Clientport 22255 in the game's advanced options, within Steam. It didn't make the slightest bit of difference.

Third, my son isn't even playing that game anymore, and even with his machine turned off, mine doesn't work, so it's not his installation that's influencing mine, nor is it our router because the two machines connect through the same router.


I've been following other threads similar to mine, from people with the exact same problem that remain unresolved.

I noticed that some of them have the same processor as me, if not identical, from the same line (AMD Ryzen 5 5600X).

I still believe the problem is related to the processor.

@Rokebo73 I found a solution, and it's related to the EA App itself.

My EA App (C:\Program Files\Electronic Arts\EA Desktop\EA Desktop\EADesktop.exe) was set to run as administrator, and it still never worked. So today I had the following idea:

1. Run the EA App in Windows 8 Compatibility Mode + Administrator Mode. And it worked.

After the EA App first successfully ran the game (both battlefield 2042 and Battlefield V), I closed the EA App and did the following:

1. I removed Windows 8 compatibility mode (I left only administrator mode). And it continued to work.

Maybe it was some initial configuration that the new EA App should have done right after its update, and it wasn't getting it. As soon as I put it in compatibility mode with Windows 8, it managed to complete and returned to running the games normally.
