In this guide, we’re going to list all the known issues in Star Wars: Battlefront beta, and ways to solve the ones that can be solved.

Error Code CE-34632-8 says Player “Must Update The Application”

When a player checks for updates it says that the application is up to date with the current version. Even if you try deleting and re-downloading the game you’ll have the same problem. This is a known issue and Electronic Arts announced via Twitter that they are looking into the issue.

No servers found / Can’t find servers

Players who are not able to find servers should restart Origin, and also make sure your game is not missing any updates.

Star Wars Battlefront black screen

If you’re playing the PC version and the game just gives you a black screen after you start it, there’s a couple of things you could try:
  • Update your graphics card driver.
  • Reinstall Origin (not the game itself).
  • Laptop users: force the game to use the Nvidia/AMD graphics card.
  • If you have SLI/Crossfire, disable it.
  • If you’re using TeamViewer, turn it off. Same goes for Skype and IM programs in general.
  • If you’re on Windows 7, make sure you have Service Pack 1 installed (right click on My computer, then Properties).
Sadly, there’s no guarantee any of these will help you, but they have helped other people.

Stuck at “Press Enter to Start”

If you’re playing on PC, you might be getting stuck at the “Press Enter to Start” screen. Several things might help:
  • If you own a gamepad, try plugging it in.
  • If you’re using Windows 8 or 8.1, try disabling UEFI secure boot.
  • If you have an onboard/Intel graphics card and a discrete one (AMD/Nvidia), force the game to use the latter.
  • You could try using the on-screen keyboard from the Start Menu.
  • If you’re on a laptop, try hooking it up to an external monitor or TV using a HDMI cable.
  • Try running the game in windowed mode: Alt+Enter after it starts, or add “-windowed” in launch options.

How to play SW: Battlefront with friends

A party system is implemented into the game, but it’s currently not working properly. If you try using it and don’t manage to get onto the same server as your friends, you’ll just have to wait for the developers to come up with a fix.

This game has not been unlocked

More than a few PC users have reported an issue where the game says it’s not yet unlocked even though it should be. The best thing to do in this case is wait for a while – it seems like launch times are being pushed back in some places, while access is being granted in waves in others. Be patient.

Star Wars: Battlefront crashes on PC

If you’re experiencing crashes of any kind on the PC version (especially if you’re running an older graphics card), you could try adding some launch options to the game:
  • Right-click on the game in Origin.
  • Choose Game Properties.
  • Type “-novid -noborder -windowed” in the box (without the quotation marks).
  • Check “Disable Origin in Game for this game”.

DLL missing: MSVCP120.dll

If you get an error message saying Dll missing: MSVCP120.dll, you should try reinstalling Visual C++ Redistributables, specifically the vcredist 2013 (x64 for the 64 bit version of Windows, x86 for the 32 bit one).

We’ll keep updating this guide with new issues and solutions for the duration of the beta.
