The PC version of Titanfall 2 is facing errors and issues like the game not saving, crash at startup, the game not launching, stuttering, resolution unsupported error, and more. Here I have compiled a list of errors and issues with the game along with their fixes and workarounds.
Titanfall 2 Crash, Stuttering, And Fixes
Titanfall 2 is a gem of game that was overlooked in 2016 thanks to its release date. Now that the game has launched on Steam, the game got a second chance. However, Titanfall 2 PC players are facing errors and issues with the game like the crash at startup, resolution unsupported error, disk write error, Directory Creation Error, and more.
The following are the errors and issues that players are experiencing along with their fixes and workarounds.
Game Not Saving Fix
Titantfall 2 players are reporting that the game’s isn’t saving their progress. Once they close the game, they have to start from the beginning.
The issue might be your anti-virus/Windows Defender blocking the game’s access to create save files. For Windows Defender on Win 10, open Windows Security > Virus & Threat Protection > click “Manage Settings” under Virus & Threat Protection settings.
Click “controlled folder access”, turn it on, and click on “Allow an app through controlled folder access”. Click on “Add an allowed app” > browse all apps > navigate to the Titanfall 2’s install folder and add titanfall2.exe. This will fix the game not saving issue.
Game Not Launching Fix
According to players, when they launch Titanfall 2, nothing happens and sometimes Origins doesn’t even recognize the game is installed or running. There are multiple reasons why Titanfall 2 isn’t launching and the following are the fixes.
Let’s start with the simple fix to Titanfall 2 not launching. Start the game and if Steam is showing it as running, then wait for a while. After some time, Origin will itself sort it out and will launch followed by Tatanfall 2. Or launch the game directly from the exe file instead of the Steam library.
Another fix for this issue is to open Steam > right-click Titanfall 2 > Properties > Local Files > verify integrity of game files. Let Steam complete the process and then start the game. It’ll work without any issue.
If the above fixes didn’t work then, open Origin and go to “My Game Library”. Right-click on Titanfall 2 and select “Locate Game”. Now navigate to the game’s install folder and add Titanfall 2. Origin will restart and the issue will be fixed.
For some players, apparently there is no “Locate Game” option. If you are one of those players, close both Steam and Origin. Then start Origin but, run it as administrator. After that, Start Steam and the game will launch without any issues.
Resolution Unsupported Fix
Titanfall 2 players are reporting that when they launch Titanfall 2 they get the resolution unsupported error. The following is the full error that players are experiencing.
Failed to CreateGameWindow. Resolution unsupported?
This error is related to the game’s resolution. The first time players launch the game, it runs at 1280 x 720 resolution. If you display doesn’t support the resolution then the game crashes at launch and “Resolution unsupported” error pops up.
This can easily be fixed, all players have to do is change the game’s resolution in the config file. Go to the Documents folder and navigate to “Documents\Respawn\Titanfall\local”. Open “videoconfig.txt” file in notepad and look for the following settings.
Now if your display is 1080p, then set the values for these settings as shown below.
Save the changes, launch Titanfall 2 and it’ll start working with the resolution error.
Disk Write Error Fix
This is another error that is stopping players from downloading or update Titanfall 2. The following are the fixes for this particular error.
- Right-click on Steam.exe > “Properties” . “Compatibility” tab > check “Run this program as an administrator”. Apply the setting and error should be resolved.
- Open CMD and run it as an administrator. Use the following commands and press enter after each of them.
select disk # (# is the number of the hard drive in which the game is installed)
attributes disk clear readonly.
- If the error still persists, go to Steam/logs/content_log. Scroll down and look for “failed to write”. Open the file and it has paths to some corrupted files. Follow the path and delete these files and the game will install.
Titanfall 2 Deluxe Edition Not Installed Fix
According to players, when they launch Titanfall 2 they get the following error.
The game Titanfall® 2 Deluxe Edition does not appear to be installed. Please install it or try relaunching the game.
Obviously, Origin isn’t recognizing that the game is installed. First, players need to set the same download location for Origin as Steam. Open Origin > Application Settings > Installs & Saves. Set the location under “Game Library Location”. Now, go to My Library and start downloading the game. It will recognize the already installed Titanfall 2 and the error will be fixed.
In case, Origin doesn’t recognize the installed game starts to download from scratch, there are two potential fixes for it.
The first fix is simple, open Origin and go to “My Game Library”. Right-click on Titanfall 2 and select “Locate Game”. Now navigate to the game’s install folder and add Titanfall 2. Origin will restart and the error will be fixed.
The second fix: stop the download and delete Origin. Open Steam and launch the game from there. It’ll ask you to install Origin. Install it and this time Origin will recognize the game as installed and the “Titanfall 2 Deluxe Edition does not appear to be installed. Please install it or try relaunching the game” error will be fixed.
Directory Creation Error Fix
This is another Titanfall 2 error that is not allowing the game to make save files. The following is the complete error that players are experiencing.
“Directory Creation Error”
Error trying t find the Directory for the Game Config File:”
Because of this, players have to start the game from the beginning. Here are the fixes.
One reason for this error could be the anti-virus or Windows Defender. See under “Game Not Saving Fix” to see how to fix this error with Windows Defender.
Of course, the error also states the folder it can’t access. For some players, that folder exits in OneDrive. This error can happen if you have changed your PC. Also, the game doesn’t support cloud saves on Origin.
To fix this, players need to create a dummy account and play Titanfall 2 using that account. This will fix the error for good.
Crash At Startup Fix
According to players, they are unable to play Titanfall 2 as the game crashes at startup. Here is how you can fix the issue.
One reason for the game to crash is the lack of admin rights. Right-click on the game’s exe > properties > Compatibility tab > check “Run this program as administrator”. Apply the change the game should start working without any crash at launch.
If the above fix didn’t work, then the culprit might be your anti-virus or Windows Defender blocking the game’s exe. Either disable the anti-virus or exclude the game’s folder from it.
Here is how to do in for Windows Defender on Win 10. Open Windows Security > Virus & Threat Protection > click “Manage Settings” under Virus & Threat Protection settings. Click “add or remove exclusion” under “Exclusion” > add an exclusion > folder. Add the Titanfall 2’s install folder. Now, verify game files from Steam and it’ll fix the Titanfall 2 crash at startup issue.
Another reason for the game to crash is the use of third-party tools like MSI Afterburner. Just disable any third-party tools or software you are using and the issue will be fixed.
Low FPS, Performance Fix
PC games are known to have performance issues thanks to so many configurations out there. Titanfall 2 players are reporting low FPS and stuttering issues with the game and here is how to fix it.
First, install the latest GPU drivers and make sure no background process is using too much HDD, CPU, and GPU.
If you are playing on a laptop, probably the game isn’t switching to the dedicated GPU. For Nvidia GPU users, open Nvidia Control Panel > Manage 3D Settings > Program Settings > select the game > select “High-performance Nvidia processor” under preferred preferred graphics option.
For AMD GPU, open Radeon Settings > Preferences > Additional Settings > Power > Switchable Graphics Application Settings. Select the game and select the “High-Performance profile” to the game under Graphics Settings.
If the above scenario doesn’t apply to you then open Nvidia Control Panel > Manage 3D Settings > Program Settings > select the game. Make the following changes.
Set “Power Management Mode” to “Prefer Maximum Performance”
Set “Texture Filtering- Quality” to “High Performance”
Set Vertical Sync to “On”
Disable in-game v.sync and you should be seeing improved FPS and stuttering fixed. In case stuttering still persist, follow the steps mentioned above but, set Vertical Sync to “Fast”. This will fix stuttering and give you a performance boost if you have a decent enough CPU and GPU.
