Titanfall: PC Crash, Installation & Connectivity Issues Help Guide

Having PC issues with Titanfall? You are not alone. To help alleviate the throngs of confused customers, Electronic Arts put together a list of helpful advice for PC users to survive some of these launch issues.

Check out the help guide below to get you out of the PC rut. These fixes, work-arounds and words of advice come straight from EA.

How to Fix – Crashes, Installation & Connectivity Issues

Note: EA promises fixes are incoming. Until then, try these official fixes and tweaks.

Titanfall Cannot be Installed on 32-bit Systems

  • Players running on a 32-bit version of Windows will be unable to install and play Titanfall on their PC.
  • When installing Titanfall from a physical disc on to a 32-bit system, you’ll encounter the below error, reading, “Error: A redistributable package (audio_installer.exe) was not installed successfully. Setup cannot continue. (1)”
  • If you’re encountering this error, you can confirm whether you system is 32-bit or 64-bit by clicking the Start button, then right-clicking Computer and selecting Properties. You’ll find this information listed as “System type.”

Troubleshooting Titanfall Installation Fails at 20% and 31%

  • If your installation of Titanfall fails at 31%, this is usually due to a problem encountered while downloading Titanfall’s audio file.
  • You can troubleshoot your Titanfall installation by opening your Origin client, heading to the My Games tab, right-clicking the Titanfall game tile, and selecting Repair.

Hard-Drive Related Installation Issues

  • Some players are reporting installation issues with Titanfall when using a hard drive formatted FAT32. Due to file-size restrictions inherent to FAT32 systems, some of the larger files within the Titanfall installation are unable to be managed by these hard drives.
  • To successfully install Titanfall, make sure your hard drive is formatted NTFS. You can find instructions on how to convert a hard drive partition to NTFS straight from Microsoft.

Connection Errors and Infinite Loop When Trying to Connect on Slower Internet Connections

  • Exceedingly slow internet connections may cause an error message when trying to join a server or play your game. Some players may even get stuck in an infinite loop when trying to connect.
  • Try resetting your router or modem by unplugging it from its power source for at least fifteen seconds and then plugging it back in the game.

Crashing When Accepting an Invitation to a Match in Progress While Currently in a Match

  • If you’re in the middle of a match and accept a friend’s invitation to join their match also currently in progress, your game will crash when accepting your friend’s invitation.
  • To solve this issue, make sure before you either inviting a friend or accepting an invitation to exit to the game lobby first.

Players Having Issues Receiving “Militia Pilot” Achievement

  • To increase your ability to receive the “Militia Pilot” achievement, try joining a match using the Play option, rather than Quickplay.

Kinect Cannot be Used for Voice-Comms, and “Voice and Microphone” Functionality on PC

  • Xbox One and Xbox 360 players cannot use Kinect for Voice over IP, or voice-communication, in-game.
  • Similarly, PC players with a microphone-containing-webcam set as your default microphone will have your microphone turned on automatically when playing Titanfall.
  • If you do not wish to have your microphone on during gameplay, simply disable it in your game settings or disable it as your default microphone in your computer settings.

Some Intel Processors Must Install Specific Beta Graphics Drivers

  • PC players with specific Intel processors, specifically those with Intel Graphics, must download and install a special beta graphics driver to ensure their game runs properly
  • You can find this driver, along with a full list of what Intel processors the driver is compatible with, straight from Intel.
  • Note: These drivers are intended for Intel HD desktop players only. Some laptop players have reported issues with these drivers.

My computer always restarts itself 5 minutes into a Titanfall match. No error or blue screen, just a complete reboot. Doesn’t happen in any other game.

Well,well,well.Here we go again.EA “did” say that “Titanfall won’t have launch issues like Battlefield 4.” But go figure.They are having issues anyhow.Maybe not the same issues,but issues none the less.When will people learn to not purchase EA games when they are not complete at launch? I laugh at you silly humans.Good luck with your expensive non working game.Hahahahahahahahaha!

No issues for me after 4 hours of playtime.

The repair was not working for me. so what I ended up doing was going into the titanfall folder then into VPK folder and selected cam list which opened up in Notepad. From there i would just delete the names of the files that were failing. and it finally worked. I am about to check it out in game but atleast it finally loaded.

Yesterday was playing titanfall for about 2 hours and in that short time game sound engine crashed twice, once it stuck in deadpoint (for about 2min still image and then cinnection lost message). But when you compate to other “AAA” FPS games this game is not about the stats, it is actualy FUN to play and i had fun long time ago in games so this is so rewarding. Personaly i like the killcam. It points exactly what misstakes YOUI made and why you are dead, shows how accurate are your opponent and i had none of the battlefield 4 WTF momens in here. If you are dead there it is 50perc possibility that this is becouse of the poorly coded netcode. Here is where i salute devs for choosing source engine. If they cud implement destruction in the game it wud become the most popular game ever:) so far no matter how much game wud just die in front of my eyes i will run it again and still have my smyle of enjoyment on the face, what i can’t say about others. If other game crashes… well f**k it :D

Wait, people were actually expecting this game to be developed for PC instead of just ported as an afterthought with practically no QA testing or support?! What a shock in today’s gaming industry.

Haven’t you all learned the cancer consoles have spawned for our beloved industry? It hasn’t been about creating an awesome user-experience for years, it’s been about making generic bull with generic gameplay that they know will sell.

There are very few big-hitting PC game developers out there anymore. You’re far more likely to have a very polished PC game from an indie developer than from Electronic Arts or Activision.
