How to fix Star Wars Battlefront Errors: Crash, Black Screen, Server Issue, Freezing, Stuttering and more:

 

#1 Game stuck at “press enter to start” screen fix:

This issue can be solved by following the given steps:

  1. Launch Origin
  2. Right click the game and select Game Properties
  3. Type “-novid -noborder -windowed” without the quotation marks
  4. Check “Disable Origin in Game for this game”

This will disable Origin in game but you will be able to get play offline sessions. DICE is working to create a fix for this issue. So we need to be patient.

 

#2 Crash during startup/random crashes/black screen/failed to launch fix:

  • Players who are facing issues like the game crashing to desktop while launching or during gameplay should try updating their video card drivers. We suggest users to do a clean install of the video card drivers by downloading them from the official website.
  • If you have the game on Steam, we suggest you to verify the game cache to avoid such errors.
  • Another simple but useful method is to play the game in Compatibility mode. For this, right click on the game’s .exe and click Properties. Under the Compatibility tab, set the Compatibility mode to either Windows XP SP3 or Vista.
  • Users with SLI/Crossfire setup can try disabling it and laptop users should use the dedicated GPU instead of the integrated one

 

#3 msvcp120.dll is missing/corrupted fix:

For this you need to download the missing DLL file from here and extract it in the game’s installation folder. Alternatively you can also download the DLL-Files Fixer from here and install it. Start the fixer and go to the “Install DLL files” tab from top. Enter “msvcp120.dll” in the search box. After that, it automatically installs the required DLL and your problem is solved. You can also check and fix registry errors with this software.

 

#4 Game stuck at Vader bug fix:

The only known solution to this issue is to repair the game files using Origin. And then restart the PC and launch the game. Hopefully this solves the issue. We will update this post as DICE comes up with something new.

 

#5 Missing text in Menu fix:

This is an annoying issue which occurs when your Origin is corrupted. Make sure you install the latest version and also repair the game files if all else fails.

 

#6 DirectX error crash fix:

For this error, simply update your DirectX and video card drivers and restart your PC. The game should be running fine after that.

 

If you are still facing issues, feel free to ask in the comments. We will try our best to fix the problems you are facing to run the game. And we will keep updating this page as new issues are faced by the players.
