Battlefield 4 Patched

DICE has patched the Windows edition of Battlefield 4, their military shooter sequel. The update addresses a number of bugs and issues, though it may have introduced a couple of new ones, as word is SLI rigs may now exhibit graphical flickering and the revive bar sometimes gets stuck, two problems they say they are looking into. In addition to bugfixes, they also promise improvements to what they themselves refer to as the game's "so-called 'Netcode'." Here's the list of fixes:

  • Fix for a crash that would cause the game to stall, resulting in a sound loop. This should eliminate most of the problems relating to this.
  • Fix for the SUAV (introduced in the China Rising expansion pack) not exploding when hitting enemy soldiers. While these indeed should be deadly, they were never designed for “roadkilling” opponents.
  • Fixed one of the issues related to the so-called “Netcode” (see below for details).
  • Fix for an issue where 4x the damage from a vehicle's minigun would be applied to the chest when a player had the Defense specialization equipped.
  • Fix for player tags not always showing when needed to, resulting in players shooting team members.
  • Fix for graphical flickering appearing on terrain.
  • Fixed the instance where players suddenly would transition into Spectator Mode while playing the Defuse game mode.
  • Fix for a Defuse bug where none of the teams would win a round by letting the timer run out. -Fix for players getting stuck in the revive screen after being killed.
  • Fix for players getting stuck in the kill camera after being revived.
  • Fix for the game mode specific ribbons being counted twice in the multiplayer progression.
  • Made NVidia 331.82 or later driver versions mandatory for all players.
  • Disabled DirectX 11.1 on NVidia cards that have outdated drivers.
  • Fixed driver version not being properly detected on NVidia Optimus systems.
  • Fixed a minor crash that could occur when bringing up the scoreboard.

China Rising update broke my game......awesome.

People seem to have better than average knowledge of computers/software on bluesnews, so don't be insulted, but have you tried the Repair Install function through Origin?

Of course if you have SLI, ignore the above, there is a texture issue still with SLI.


It broke mine too. I had to uninstall and reinstall (after re-downloading overnight) to get it to work again. Yes, I tried the repair function a bunch of times. Also, EAs customer service people are morons. They are literally following a script that they don't even understand. They asked me to check that my computer was ON. Yes, asshole, I'm trying to get the game to launch, it won't, but the computer is completely off. I am just describing the screen to you from my imagination.

All this to get it working just in time for them to fuck it up royally with this patch. Call of DOOOOTY!
