Kicked out of the Forge on loading in

[ Edited ]
★★★★★ Novice

(repost to correct forum) My character is being ejected from the Forge instance every single time I try to enter. On the screen, it shows the graphic for the [ESC] key being held to exit, but I am not pressing it, and the key on my physical keyboard functions properly. I also noticed that when this started I can no longer press [ESC] to skip cutscenes or dialogue, but I can use it in Tarsis to bring up the menu. My [ESC] key also works as expected outside the game. I have not rebound [ESC] to anything in game.

 

Please help - I cannot change items, loadout, javelin etc because I am not able to get into a Forge.

Solution: Uninstall the game and perform a clean install.

Hey @xukiza

 

Sorry to hear about this.

 

Have you tried turning off the Origin in-game Overlay, and repairing the game files in Origin?

 

Let us know if this works.

 

Thanks Standard smile

Thanks for replying. Is there an obvious way to turn off the overlay in-game, please?

I'll try the file repair also.

To turn off the Origin in-game Overlay, you go to Origin, Application Settings, More, and Origin in-Game.

 

You can also turn this off in the Game Properties for Anthem by clicking on the Game Cover, and clicking the cogwheel and going to Game Properties.

Again, I appreciate your reply, but unfortunately neither of those worked to fix it. It still shows as if the [ESC] key is being held down on loading into the Forge instance. Again, nothing physical on my keys, nor bindings, and [ESC] works fine in other areas and in Tarsis and in other apps.

Try this:

  • Make sure Origin is closed.
  • Go to your "Documents\BioWare\Anthem\settings" folder
  • Move the "ProfileOptions_profile" file to your desktop.
  • Start the game and test.

@xukiza Hey there, can you try deleting the files located in Documents\BioWare\Anthem\settings  and let me know if that helps?

Can you load other things where "esc" being pressed would prevent you?

 

Do you have any USB devices connected besides mouse and keyboard? (if so, try disconnecting them and try)

I appreciate you reaching out to help @EA_Cade - unfortunately, in this instance, the solution did not work. I still get that [ESC] key stuck on effect on zoning into the Forge. Soon as I am back in Tarsis I can press [ESC] and it will open the map/settings etc window without issue. 

 

This only began happening after the patch yesterday. When playing prior to the big patch, it worked as expected in all cases.

[ESC] button works as expected in all other cases, with the exception of skipping dialogue in the game, I have to click on the [ESC]  button with my mouse. Pressing the actual key does nothing. Again, if I log out of the game the [ESC] key works fine. This was also not happening prior to the big patch yesterday.
