GENERAL FIXES

Generally speaking, some basic troubleshooting tips should always help you resolve whatever issue you are facing with the PC version of any game. If you are running into problems, maybe first attempt the following steps, and if they don’t work out, look into some of the more specific fixes we have below.

  • Make sure the drivers on your PC are updated
  • If you have two GPUs, make sure you are using the discrete GPU instead of the integrated one
  • Set Star Wars Battlefront 2‘s priority to High in the Task Manager Turn off any background programs, including firewalls, chat clients, video recorders, and overlays
  • Try lowering visual settings on the game to see if that improves game performance
  • Make sure you have Windows updated before you attempt to play Star Wars Battlefront 2.

GAME RANDOMLY RESTARTS

  • Run the game using DirectX 12

GAME WON’T RUN IN DIRECTX 12

  • Go to the Documents folder,  and then to Star Wars Battlefront II\settings. Open the BootOptions in a text editor and change “GstRender.EnableDx12 0” to “GstRender.EnableDx12 1” (or vice versa, if you want to disable DirectX 12).

GAME CRASHES

  • Run %ProgramData%, open the Origin folder, and delete everything within it. Do the same for %AppData%. After this, click on the “AppData” at the top of the window. Open the “Local” folder. Delete the Origin folder here. Now restart the PC.

BLACK SCREEN

  • Yep, you already know what to do- switch to Windowed mode (Alt-Enter is your friend)

SETTINGS KEEP CHANGING TO DEFAULT

  • Disable cloud storage

DETECTED DRIVER 0.0.0

  • Go to the Documents folder,  and then to Star Wars Battlefront II\settings. Open the BootOptions in a text editor and change “GstRender.EnableDx12 1” to “GstRender.EnableDx12 0”

Note: Given that the wide range of PC hardware out there, the fixes mentioned here may or may not work for you. But it’s worth giving them a shot since these have worked for players who own the PC version of the game.
