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.

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
