The mech-style Titans returns once again with their arsenal of abilities and seven new gameplay mechanics to wreak havoc in the war of humans versus aliens. Developed by Respawn Entertainment, Titanfall 2’s plot line revolves around the militia rifleman Jack Cooper, a wannabe Titan pilot. Titanfall 2 is one of the most awaited games for Fall 2016 and will be facing a huge competition from EA’s Battlefield 1 that got released last week with an overwhelming positive response from the fans. EA has taken it as a challenge to release two back to back blockbuster titles in the span of a week with one of them doing good already.

1. Titanfall 2 PC- Crash at startup/ CTD/ Game not responding/ APPCRASH/ Black screen fix:-

  • Update your Nvidia and AMD drivers to the latest versions.
  • Disable antivirus/firewall or add game to the exception list of the antivirus software.
  • Disable all recording softwares like Fraps, MSI AfterBurner, D3DGear etc. They may conflict with your DirectX Direct3D settings resulting in a crash.
  • If your game is crashing while going full screen, try playing in windowed mode.
  • Black screen issue- Well this issue can be due to lot of reasons. First of all, you should check that the in-game resolution matches the resolution supported by your display device so that there should not be any conflict. If you are using HDMI, try unplugging the HDMI cable from TV and launch the game. Wait a few mins before replugging the HDMI cable back into the TV.
  • Registry clean using CCleaner can also fix some of the crashes. You can download CCleaner from here.
  • For any DLL error or APPCRASH issue, it is recommended to do a clean install of Directx. Or, you can download the missing DLLs from here and paste them in the game directory.

2. Titanfall 2 PC- Server/Connectivity issues:-

First of all, make sure that your antivirus/firewall is not blocking the game's connection. You can add game to the exception list of your antivirus. Also try opening these ports to solve connection issues. Finally, if you are using any other network adapter like VPN, then disable it and run game as admin.

3. Titanfall 2 PC- Low FPS/ Stuttering/ freezes/ lags fixes:-

  • Updating your Nvidia and AMD GPU drivers is a must.
  • If you are facing optimization issues, severe lags or stutters; you can try turning down shadows, MSAA and adjust other graphics settings. Updated GPU drivers is mandatory.
  • For AMD users, disable Raptr from task manager. Disable any other intensive applications that may be running in background. Also try setting ‘Tessellation mode’ to 8x/16x and 'Texture Filtering Quality' to Performance from your latest Crimson edition Radeon software to fix frame rate drops.
  • For Nvidia users, go into your control panel 3d settings. Make sure that ‘Power Management Mode’ option should be set to ‘Prefer Maximum Performance’.
  • If you are experiencing screen flickering or frame-pacing issues, disable Crossfire/SLI and run the game using a single GPU.
  • Turn off all overlaying softwares and disable any recording softwares like Fraps, D3DGear, MSI Afterburner etc.
  • Disable third party background apps and set High Priority for the game in Task Manager. Disable any kind of overclocking.

4. Titanfall 2 PC- Engine Error fix:-

This error is mostly due to insufficient graphics memory(VRAM) of your system. You should note that Titanfall 2 is a graphics intensive game, and if you are getting crashes with such error message, you should try running the game at lower settings.

5. Titanfall 2 PC- 30 FPS capped fix:-

Try disabling the Sync graphics option from the settings. As this setting tries to cap the FPS for low end systems.

6. Titanfall 2 PC- Controller not working fix:-

A temporary solution to this issue is to use a third party software like Joy2Key or x360ce. If you are using a generic controller but the buttons don’t match with the game, just download the Xbox360 controller files. After the completion of download, copy the file and put them in the FIFA 17 folder.

  • For x360ce, first you need to download the software from the above mentioned link.
  • Next extract the contents from the archive and copy x360ce_x64.exe to the game directory.
  • Then launch the software. Make sure your controller is detected by the tool. Then under Controller 1, choose Auto or Manual as per your preference. We recommend to choose Auto as it automatically maps the buttons on your stick and has worked perfectly for most users.

7. Titanfall 2 PC- No Data Centers/ High Ping fix:-

First of all, go through #2 to check if your game's network is working properly or not. Try to choose the best datacenter for your region. Also, try connecting through a wired internet as Wifi can cause high ping problems. If nothing works, try restarting game and router once.

Heads Up: Titanfall 2 is available on Origin for $59.99.
