    Origin games working?


    Has anyone managed the to get the Battlefield 3 beta to work with the developer preview or other Origin games? And if so, did you need to do anything extra to make it work properly?
    Thanks.

    For the beta I only needed to remove the special cheracters in the directory name, and for the game itself I didn't have to do anything just installed it in "D:\Program files\Battlefield 3" and it worked~!

    I have been trying everything to get BF3 and BFbc2 to work with W8 CP, no luck so far. As soon as it loads the map in either game I get "driver stopped responding" and have to close it with task manager if it lets me click anything without trying to automatically go back to the game which is frozen. If it doesn't let me, then I have to hard reset. This even happens trying to play the single player campaigns. Cut scenes and menus work, but when maps try to load it's as if it crashes as soon as it's done and about to start gameplay.

    Using a 560 ti with driver 295.73. Same problems with 285.62 or wddm. I've googled and searched the NVidia community forum as well as the battlefield forum and tried every trick in the book, well except perhaps the one that would actually work, lol. If I can find a place to download 275.xx drivers i'll try those too, but i'm basically out of ideas.
