So I literally spent a whole day whittling it down to customizations. If you customize your car to a certain point, races don’t like it - and even getting to a race will make the game crash.

 

So, to PREVENT this — do not use any body kit customizations past a certain number. 5-8 is a safe number. Skin/wraps/decals count as one customization.

 

If you experience a crash, you WILL have to do the following to “initialize” the vehicle in order to use it again:

 

1.) Remove all customizations — including wheel customization — from your car.

2.) Exit out to the main menu.

3.) Load the game and complete a race. In the beginning levels there’s one just straight ahead from where you exit the garage.

4.) When you get back to your garage, add on no more than 5 visual customizations.

5.) Play the nearest race to test. If it doesn’t crash, you may add another 3.. maybe even 4 —- at the max. Test again.

 

Add no more than 8 customizations. If your game crashes and you get the ever-irritating CE-34878-0 error, you WILL need to repeat the initialization steps above. Simply removing one or more customizations doesn’t fix the problem once you’ve experienced a crash.

 

Until EA/Frostbite creates a fix for this.. we need to be counting how many visual upgrades are “safe” for each car.

 

Fortunately tuning/performance upgrades aren’t affected, as far as I can tell.

@EA_Atic ??? You havent found the cause? You must have tested the console versions for it to be allowed out for sale, how the hell dont you know it was happening? You must have known for christs sake, were not stupid. Its EA constant lying that makes us all mad. I have a game i payed 60 quid for and it does not work, i will never forgive you for this.

@sbaka They wont fix it...they are claiming its hard drives causing the issue, even though its BS and they know it. thousands have the same error on ps4 and xbox and have returned the game. EA dont care, so just trade the POS back in for something else.

Need for Speed Heat Game Crashing: Error code (CE-34878-0)

★★★★ Novice

Since its release last week Friday I've been having problems with Need for Speed Heat crashing when I race in certain areas. Online is even worse because I can't even complete an event with other players without getting Error code (CE-34878-0). I've lost about 3 million in Rep today because of this stupid error. You're arguably the largest video game publishers in the world this should not be happening. This game has crashed on me more than 20 times already. I tolerate it because the game is so good otherwise but I'm reaching my breaking point. Please fix this fast. You owe it to your customers for crying out loud.
