Titanfall: Issues and workarounds

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.

Installation

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

Connectivity:

  • 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

Hardware

  • 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.

      It friggin rocks, although if you wanna play for free and not use a credit card to pay to win…it involves a lot of grinding. It’s still a ton of fun though.

        How much grinding? And how is the ping?

          I actually haven’t even looked at ping, I tend to not get too hung up on it. If it is playable I’m happy. Having said that, it is extremely playable but I do play off 3G. Overall, I am able to find games in seconds and it is always full. The servers crashed on Saturday when it went free2play due to the interest in the game, but within 30 minutes everything was fine.

          As for grinding, I’m currently earning about 200 Hawken credits (I never said I was great at the game) per round, and the mechs start at about 4000 credits. Upgrades vary in price but start at about 500 credits. So it can take a bit of time to build your arsenal.

            It had early access if you were willing to buy one of the bundles, by free2play, I mean they opened up access to everyone on Friday.

            I didnt buy anything and have been playing for free for over 2 years ?

            March 13, 2014 at 11:44

            It was probably initially open and free, but for the last 3 weeks I was trying to get access, only two options were a $9 and a $19 pack, both come with mechs and upgrades. Then Friday (US time, Saturday our time) it opened up for free download.

            TBH the only area where Bioware is really lacking is after release support for their games. Mass Effect 3 still suffers from quite a few bugs, missing textures and the like but they won’t fix it for some reason.

        I found it an extremely boring grind. May just as well have been PvE botmatches the mechanics are so simplistic.

        Unlike any FPS MP game. Three factions on three continents. The battle is always ongoing not round based. Continents are huge. Battles can be more than 50 vs 50 at one time. You have classes with jetpacks, extra shields and cloak abilities. No limit on the number of tanks or planes that can be spawned. Theoretically you can have 50 tanks or planes at any given time. Check out a couple of Youtube videos.

            Yeah, crazy stuff, I’m guessing it was more, since I had about 4 kills in that “battle” and was about #363 on that current kill scoresheet, and there were plenty of freeloaders waiting for the inevitable XP

    So, final time I’m asking before making my decision. To everyone playing the released retail version of Titanfall: does it perform well enough on our networks that you would recommend buying it?
