Re: Character select screen freeze

Hey @_0RIGlNAL_ 

Can you try to disable 1 or 2 cores for Origin in task manager?

Make sure origin is running in the background.

  • Open task manager, look for the Origin service.
  • Right-click and click go to details.
  • The Origin process will be highlighted, right-click and click on set affinity.
  • Now check here as many cores you can but leave one core unselected.

Let me know if that changed anything.
