Hi all,

 

Thanks for the updates.

 

It's good to see that the issue has been resolved for many of you with the release of Update 4.1.

 

Because of this, we're going to close the thread.

 

If you're still having trouble and think it's related but not quite the same, don't worry! It's possible that some simple troubleshooting steps can help fix your issue. To avoid any confusion, it's best to create a new thread for your problem.

 

Thank you & See you on the Battlefield!

Battlefield wont open after patch #4.0.1

★★ Apprentice

Recently installed the latest 4.0.1 patch.

 

Tried to open the game after install, game loads the initial splash screen with the easy anti-cheat logo on it, then disappears and the EA app pops back up, essentially crashing.

 

I have tried to run the game as an administrator

Tried to repair the game

Deleted the cache contents

restarted computer

run in compatibility mode

 

Nothing has worked, it just crashes back to desktop. Had no issues before this update.

Game not starting

★★★★ Novice

I had the same issue i see here alot, EAC opens, stays for 10 15 sec, then closes down and the EA app opens, nothing more happens.

 

I assumed it was some other program i had running that made this happen (i have had no issue until this day, play every day, and never had this happen)

 

It turned out that if i close my Blizzard app, BF2042 started with no issue, wich i find weird, as i always had it running before, but today it interfered with BF2042.

 

I hope this helps someone.

I've been seeing the same issue for the past couple days. I believe its random. If I just keep restarting the game eventually it will launch. Sometimes it takes 2 tries. Sometimes it takes 5 or more.

 

I suspect it was just luck/coincidence that it started after you closed the Blizzard application.

Game wont launch after release 4.0.1 patch. I did everything. 
-Start as admin all launcher (, BF2042.exe, EasyAC, etc...)
-Re-install everything (, Steam, EasyAC even BF2042)

-Update drivers...

EVERY. All BF games launching but 2042 wont. I write reddit, @EAhelp on twitter but nobody looked my post or DMs. I have been waiting for 3 days for any answer from EAhelp and forums.

@MigueIOHara 

I'm experiencing the symptom where the EAC splash screen shows up then eventually closes and EA App opens without the game starting. If I just keep restarting the game it eventually does start. Sometimes I have to start the game 5+ times before it finally works. Sometimes it will work on the 2nd try. Its somewhat random.

 

This all started a few days ago after the spike in players. Wondering if there is some backend server or network connection that is being overutilized as a result of increased players.

 

Keep trying to restart the game and see if it eventually does start.

Dont be surprised !

I did get this issue also after 4.01.

I did realy pretty much everything i know , no succes.


What i did that solverd it for me:

Unplug powercord from PC.
Now hold down the power button from pc for about 10 seconds.

Plugin powercord from pc and boot pc.

I still needed to start 2 time BF2042 before it started running again.

But now is everything ok, and no issues !

 

Update us please what it did for you !

 

Cheers
