Thanks for your update. I will try it on Tuesday / Wednesday when I am back home.


But does not seem like the fault reason is the resolution of the screen. Some people playing only in Full HD and have the Error too. 


Possible that lowering the resolution milders the symptoms.

@Sn00zey90 You are probably right. Ful HD is fair bit more than 3840X1600 I think at least +2Million pixels more, but that's frightening if non wide screen is failing too so you know if these people are also using a 40XX class card?

I hope, actually I really hope EA look at this thread Monday morning and get into it.

Let me know how it goes for you.

Same issue on Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 Ti.

Intel Core i7 10700K @ 3.80GHz.


Windows 10.



Tried multiple methods including the deletion of the DX12 file in the game's directory.

No changes.


I really hope they do not abandon this and patch it soon. It's making the game unplayable and disappointing.

So apparently deleting the dx12 file in shadercache folder helps also putting in launch options -dx12

I only play the multiplayer part. After some hours I can say that the game crashs only in races. If I drive around in the open world it works for 1 hour without any problem.

I did 1 race at the start of the game, after that I drive around for 5-10 minutes, did another race, drive around for collectibles (25 minutes ?) and in the third race I crashed at start of the race. 


I never crashed outside a race.

@SuperSixBravo Nope, unfortunately not everyone with this Error uses the 40xx Cards. Looks like the error starts with the 20xx. Did not seen someone with a <20xx card have that till now for this game.


But take a look at google and search for "Apex Legends DX Hung Error". You will find loads of people having that with any card and any resolution.

I'm getting the same issue in both BF2042 and NFS Unbound with the gigabyte 4080 card.  


I had no issues previously (haven't played recently) with bf2042 on my old 2070 super.

Same issue with 4080 GTX


Not addressing this problem in the known issues is really bad.

I really wanted to buy this game, thanks to your 10 hour trial I know that its * and you don´t give a damm in forums, I´ll suspend my EA pass and look for better tested games.

The fact the all the people from EA on here, blatantly ignore all the posts regarding crashing. And not update the known bugs, is absurd to me.
Are they afraid of a potential lawsuit? Or are they just not aware the people are generally more happy with them if they show a hint of transparency? Noone is gonna be bitter if they can admint that there is an unforeseen issue with the game, and that they are working to fix it. 

And yeah, im talking to you EA grunts hiding from the issue, i know you see the complaints coming in...
