Can't update?

#1thomasfreidPosted 3/12/2012 4:00:04 PM
So I'm trying to update this game but origin is stuck at "preparing" Battlefield 3.
Is there anyway to fix this?

I tried skipping origin and opening the game but when I said yes to the update it just showed the progress bar stuck at 0%.

I keep trying to update but everytime I do Origin ends up crashing after about 30min of "Preparing".

Any help?

I'm really desperate here. I only got the game little over a week ago and haven't even been able to play it!

I uninstalled Origin and reinstalled it but still no luck.
However, I have just uninstalled BF3 and am reinstalling it now (since repairing it just caused Origin to freeze and crash) so hopefully this will do the trick.

So reinstalling BF3 still doesn't help. The update won't download.
Anymore ideas?

Also when I try to "check for Update" through Origin it doesn't find one and continues to endlessly search for an update. However, when I launch the game it says an update is required (obviously) but when it starts the update it doesn't manage to get past the "calculating" stage.

Is anyone else having similar problems?

Help... Please?

I even tried copying my mates update files over to my Battlefield 3 directory but Origin doesn't seem to notice them at all, even when I try a repair install.

At this point you're better off contacting Origin customer support:
