FIFA 14 PC crashes to desktop, fix debated

How are you enjoying playing FIFA 14? While some of our readers took time off work to play FIFA 14 all day and night, it appears that some gamers using the PC version of the game have hit a number of problems.

We have received feedback from a few FIFA 14 PC owners that are experiencing crashes to desktop, and this happens shortly after the EA Sports logo in some cases when the game will abruptly freeze after start up. It should be pointed out that other players experience crashing on the PC during gameplay as well, and there are those that manage to play the game with no such problems with their copy.

Taking a quick look at the official EA forums reveals hundreds of people being affected by freezes and crashing on FIFA 14 for the PC. Some of these messages were posted before the latest patch that addressed balancing issues and the update officially aimed to stop freezing and crashing being reported by gamers.

FIFA-14-PC-fix-debated

The developers explained that while the FIFA 14 PC patch will fix a lot of crashes, including those crashing to desktop, the update would still leave a “small percentage of problems”. With this in-mind, we would love to know if you still experience problems with FIFA 14 on PC, Xbox 360 or PS3 after the latest patch?

We recommend you make sure the latest updates are installed before reporting any problems to EA, or leaving comments below. EA has also reminded users about the correct versions of Windows to operate the game smoothly, although with 12 forum pages on one thread and growing by the day it is clear problems remain.

Is your PC version of FIFA 14 crashing to Windows desktop? Let us know if you have a crash-free and freeze-free game, or if you experience a game crash once the match starts like many users are reporting. Some reports from users after the patch include FIFA 14 freezing in the in-game menu, which can only be fixed by ending the task in Task Manager, so again share a comment below with any other problems you have found on the PC version.

Sorry, had really fun/annoying glitch on 14.

Referee’s had become card happy, sending off 5 players for not even a bookable challenge (Pressing ‘B’ too many times) to both me and the AI in one game. Carried on a few times in Career, thend decdided to restart FIFA. Fixed it, but left with one of the most confusing glitches of all time for FIFA… for me.

Just bought the game today, via Origin – but “Fifa 14 has stopped working” message comes up instantly after I play press button. Searched for updates – no new found. Repaired installation – no problems. Did the bdcedit thing in cmd and installed framework 4.5. No matter what I do, this problem keeps occuring. Can’t even see a logo or Messi’s face as others has reported. I press play and the error occurs immediately. If they really want people to BUY games rather than download them illegally, maybe they should make sure that their games are WORKING when people buy… Read more »

It appears I may have found a reproducible glitch.

After one whole game on Career (Watford manager, you ‘Orns!), restart AT THE END OF THE MATCH WHEN YOU CAN ADVANCE and play as normal again. Around the 80th minute, I’ve noticed this two – three times where it freezes by a frame or two then crashes to desktop.

Anyone got this?

I’m experiencing this on the PS3. It doesn’t happen while playing in a match, it’s after a match that seems to be the issue. I’ve had several occasions where at the end of a game, I’ve gone to restart a match (to save time and keep building up game time) and it also after a match when i’m in the stats screens or back in the tournament mode screens etc it just freezes for no apparent reason and then I try to exit the game, however, I can’t exit through the PS3 controller button and have to press and hold… Read more »
