newly bought battlefront 2 refuses to launch steam/origin

★★★★ Novice

as mentioned in the title my battlefront two will not launch from origin it loads up on steam fine but then it tries to load it via Origin and either says "playing" for a few seconds then nothing or just nothing happens at all i have not been able to launch the game once since purchase and i do not have any of the star wars battlefront two document folders also because of this.

 

i have tried many forums and all of them don't work in my case ,this is like a super bacteria of battlefront 2 where nothing else is working and its resistant to all methods of fixing it 

 

i have contacted live support and was directed here to make a post and just hope that someone high up in development sees this 

 

any help would be highly appreciated as i played this game on ps4 and loved it and i would hate to never be able to play this game again (as my ps4 is now broke)

i very happily can inform you guys i found 2 fixes randomly on reddit with a guy complaining about how his BFV did not work 

 

FIX-1

you can create a new windows profile and make it as administrator, guide below

FIX-2

thanks to the guy on this random reddit post linked here(https://www.reddit.com/r/origin/comments/nw8c5m/origin_games_wont_launch/h7w8n1i/)

"Ok so from the guide I followed from a post that fixed my issue: Step 1, is to type environment variables in the windows search bar at the bottom left of your desktop. Step 2, is to click on GAME_DATA_DIR. Step 3, is to click on the top delete button and click OK. Step 4, is to restart your computer." 

apparently due to origin and frosty mod manager being both great launchers it some how * it up so that's how you fix it

 

i hope one of these two fixed it for you guys and i hope to see you in game share this to anyone who is having the same problem as this is the only fix i have found in thousands of forums

Hey, @harleycm2  can you try a clean boot to see if any programs are messing with SWBF2 and turn off any overlay programs, such as Discord or Nvidia experience.

 

Can you add a Dxdiag so we can see what hardware and drivers you have? 

 

Let me know if this works or not for you. Standard smile

do you think its worth just refunding at this point because i cant find a fix no matter what i do.Maybe if i get a new PC at somepoint it will fix and i can play it but for the time being it seems every single thing i have seen does not seem to work

I am having the same problem. I have tried everything. I am not sure if it is an Origin issue or an STBF2 issue.
