    I am quite surprised that no one opened a thread on this. Is any1 else in this forums having problems like that in the game ? I am very disappointed myself, since i bought the game i have not been able to play one match online. Almost 2 days have passed and i have 2 kills so far .... I have tried EVERY possible thing including :

    1)Updating PB manually
    2)Updating PB using the setup
    3)Using PB files from the beta
    4)Disabling UPnp
    5)Port Fowarding
    6)Disabling firewalls
    7)Tried various internet browsers
    8)Tried various drivers
    9)Changed in-game settings ... audio and video
    10)Re-Installed the game
    11)Re-downloaded the game
    12)Re-installing Windows
    13)Repaired the game

    Nothing seems to work !!! THAT is frustrating, when you spend $60 on a game .... you expect ..... to, well, play it !!! Any1 have had similar issues ? If so did you get it fixed ?

    I had the same issue as you, but repairing the game fixed it for me.

    Especially EA games. They are known to have plenty of issues at release with their games.

    i did the repair and now everytime it checks the date, the program just shuts off and never activates my game.

    i tried those tips, and it didn't work :/


    EDIT: Don't try the fix Paladinchan mentioned, about deleting the files in the _installer folder. it doesnt work.

    the best way to fix this, is to login to battlelog and join a server. it will ask you to activate and the screen will dissappear like before. but afterwards you will be able to join a server normally.

    Yeah I have encountered some issues.

    -Screen flickering green & red (Using Catalyst 11.9)
    -Occasional hitching while FPS is moderately high (Even with raw mouse disabled)
    -Crash to desktop
    -Game locking up
    -Lost connection to server
    -Kicked
    -Lag on 32 person & 64 person severs (Playing TDM just to enjoy MP on a BF game, go figure)

    Also my Steelseries 6GV2 (mechanical keyboard) experiences key blocking in this game. Sometimes I'll be walking forward while strafing and suddenly stop dead in my tracks wondering "WTF I can't move!" until I lift my finger off of W before pressing it again.

    I heard using a PS/2 adapter allows full NKRO (N Key Roll Over) so I'll try that.

    Anyways it seems I don't like this game as much as I want to. Mainly because I don't like most of the maps and find the vaulting to be clunky.

    I just want to jump over an object without being locked into an animation that fails often.

    Aside from that I think I'm just too used to BFBC2 and it's "unrealism" throwing C4's at a ridiculous range, shotty sniping & shotty quick switching (reload cancel), rockets blowing up vehicles (besides tanks) in 1 hit..then again all of this is gone for the better and I should try to get used to it.

    I've still got this problem, although it is nowhere as extreme as it used to be during the Beta. I googled for hours trying to find out where the problem lied; at first i thought it was my overclocked CPU not getting enough vcore, so i raised that. No improvements, except in temperature :p



    Later on i found a tip where you disabled some services in Windows.
    It didn't remove the problem, but I can play for long sessions now without getting the disconnect.

    • Go into services.msc (run-> Services.msc) and STOP the following services:
    • UPnP Device Host
    • SNMP Trap
    • After this go into your network and sharing center, then click that you want to change/modify advanced settings for sharing. Disable Network recognition (the first one.)
    For some reason my windows language is set to norwegian so some of the 'terms' used in this little howto may be off.. just ask if you need me to explain further..


    Let me know if this helped. Good luck with this extremely frustrating bug!

    BF3 Disconnects

    Hi guys,

    This is my first time posting here and i signed up to reply to this thread! So i hope this is worth it.

    I have a NETGEAR WNDR37000 Router, I logged into it and it promted me to update. I read the new fixes and one of them was for BF3 disconnection issues. It fixed it immediatly, and it works a charm. I was having the same issues being dropped, kicked and disconnected from server. Now i think its just our routers need updating.

    I got onto it because someone suggested turning off the UPnP...

    Let me know if this helps! Cheers!

    Definitely check your firewalls. I had stupidly told it to block Bf3 and tried EVERYTHING to get it working before I checked firewalls settings :bang:
