Titanfall: Issues and workarounds

2 min read


Titanfall is out already in the US, with a European release of the mech-battler tomorrow. South Africans waiting to play the hyped multiplayer shooter will have to wait until its local release date of 32 Febtober. Or pick up a key from somewhere like Evopoints, which is where we got our pre-loaded but as-yet-unplayable copies of the game. If you have the game, but are experiencing issues, EA and Respawn have outlined some of the more common errors – and how to fix them.

Here’s an example of the sorts of trouble people have been having with Titanfall, solutions for which can be found at EA’s support site.


  • Titanfall cannot be installed on 32-bit systems
  • Troubleshooting installation fails at 20% and 31%
  • Hard-drive related installation issues


  • Connection errors and infinite loop when trying to connect on slower internet connections

Crashing and In-game

  • Crashing when accepting an invitation to a match in progress while currently in a match
  • Players randomly assigned to the IMC or Militia when starting Campaign


  • Kinect cannot be used for voice-comms, and Voice and microphone functionality on PC
  • Some Intel processors must install specific beta graphics drivers

In somewhat related news, EA, Respawn and Microsoft have confirmed that Australia will be getting its own Azure-powered Titanfall servers, going live tomorrow. We don’t even get the game.

As I said earlier you can work around the lack of a local release and still standby for Titanfall. If you refuse to give EA a cent but still want some Titanfall action, you can click here. It’s probably also worth mentioning that Hawken is available on Steam, for free.
