  • Soooooooo any new news?

    I can't play BF4 anymore, the game locks up every time with a sound loop, I used to have rare crashes, maybe once every 2-3 weeks, but now I can't play for more than 10 seconds without a crash (not an exaggeration, i spend more time loading maps than I can actually spend playing).

    EA doesn't seem to care honestly, they've got my money already, who cares if the users can't play? right? They've given no public response to the amazing spike in crashes since the last update (fortunately I'm not the only one, seems to happen to lots of users, even people with MUCH beefier systems than I).

    Anything worth talking about here on the forums instead?

      I had one crash as well. Usually things will be fixed, if they don't fix it with a large amount of people their future money income from you will be lost. It's in their best interest to help everybody.

        You might want to try Tuesday with that patch as they will be releasing Second Strike.

          Same here buddy. Glad I have the new DLC just so I can see the icon in the server list. The update did not correct my sound loop crash. I miss playing BF4, the good ole days it seems like.

              Let me know if any worked for you. The ones I tried had no effect.

                Yep if you set the fps max to something really low and turn on vsync, that let me play for something like 10 minutes last night, that's the longest i've been able to play in a week, i set my fps max to 30, i think if i set it to 20 it might have run for even longer, it's almost unbearable to play, but it's better than not playing at all

                  Just a quick question. Could you problems be driver related? Or have you tried that already? I've had sound issues on some Domination maps, but never crashed due to that

                    Prior to the Feb 13th path, I could play for hours on end. Maybe crash once a week and that's not really a big deal as it could be anything causing that one. However, after the update, I can not play. some maps I can load and crash 1 minute or two in. Most don't even load all the way. I did not anything other than the game. Since I discovered I could not play, I have rolled back to drivers and tried a variety of config suggestions, but to no avail.

                      ditto : before cranking down my FPS Max setting I couldn't play for more than 10 seconds on almost ANY map, with quite a few tweaks to the bf4 settings I could get that up to 30 seconds sometimes, but usually it'd still crash in the first 10 seconds of a map (sometimes I couldn't even deploy before it would crash). I've run the same drivers for a while. AFTER the feb 13th update there have been 2 other sets of drivers I've tried to no avail. I wish I could just blame drivers and roll back and move on, but I know for a fact that it's the game and not the drivers. If you look at my soldier profile I was playing EVER DAY up until Feb 13th. Several maps every night. I was really working my butt off to level up my soldier as much as possible during player appreciation month with all the bonus xp from the daily battlepacks. They said in the Feb 13th release notes they were trying to fix something related to the sound-loop crash (since this has been a common problem since the release of the game). Unfortunately whatever they did they made it 1000x worse.

                        What about deleting the original installation then reinstalling. That might work.
