Is anyone else having this issue, or have in the past? The disk space is used and I can literally look at the folders, so it's definitely not uninstalled, but for some reason Origin is now telling me it doesn't exist and is trying to force me to download it again.

yes, that's the feature of the "advanced origin client" pos..
this will help you - https://forums.battlefiel ... 6618/#Comment_736618

this is what they say - If your Origin is telling you that the game is not installed and you have to download the whole game, I can confirm you do NOT have to download the entire game again.

Click Download and Origin will detect the game files that are already present, And will skip those and just download the patch

I actually can't do that because there isn't enough space on the SSD to even select the option. What a spectacularly complete failure at rolling out a new system on EA's part.

I uninstalled and am downloading each part of it at a time now. I looked through my C: drive but there is literally nothing else I can uninstall to make more room.

Yeah, you have to "download" the game again but in reality, you're downloading like 10 GB worth of extra crap that EA is throwing at you.

On top of that, you have to re-add all your favorites again if you're using the in-game browser.

YAY EA!

It was making me re download the entire game, I realized I've had BF4 installed on my hard drive since the beginning. I just cut it from the hard drive and pasted it into the origin folder on one of my SSDs and when I pressed "download" it started at 85% and just downloaded the new nonsense after finding my game files.

This new UI is probably EA's way of trying to prolong BF1's life by making it more accessible to the BF4 players. There is literally no reason for this UI update other than that.

I really don't get how a company can be making the same game since 2004 and still manage to completely fuck things up.

There is literally no reason for them to update it other than to try to push the BF4 players to BF1.

Well I after spending a couple hours installing everything I got it working. Doesn't looks like many other people have, though; the community is dead right now for the most part.

Comments are great, people ragging BFV and loving Sandstorm!

Semi auto is perfect for this game, as one hit is usually always a kill.
TwinGunsLLP 14th Dec
It's just so much fun with the semi auto weapons at medium range. I put a 2x red dot on the MK14 EBR with a suppressor and wheeee.
TwinGunsLLP 14th Dec
No, I think 5 maps total right now. Played a couple hours again last night, I'm really enjoying it!
superhanssolo 14th Dec
has it got more then 4-5+ maps?
TwinGunsLLP 13th Dec
I'm hoping he plays some more and puts the highlights in one of his highlight videos hah.
TwinGunsLLP 13th Dec
Also, unless you've been playing for awhile since Alpha etc. you're at a big disadvantage. I was playing with folks last night who really knew the game well, so they had certain angles etc. all covered. We need to learn the maps first and then we'll do much better, the game is incredibly fun though!
TwinGunsLLP 13th Dec
Doc is hilarious, you could tell his COD run and gun style is in no way suited for Insurgency. But he knows it's a good game that's why he never threatened to uninstall it lol.
TwinGunsLLP 13th Dec
Good question! Yes it says team damage when you it somebody, but I never actually tkd someone so not sure.
superhanssolo 13th Dec
Doc not doing so well this game but kept his cool never the less. lol i still can't figure out if there's team damage on?
TwinGunsLLP 13th Dec
For giggles, here's the Doc playing it yesterday. https://www.youtube.com/w ... atch?v=9J2Mm0COR6w

It's even more Hardcore more than traditional. There's absolutely no way to know if you hit somebody, or even killed somebody. You only find out your score when you die and TAB out. I really like it!
TwinGunsLLP 13th Dec
Servers are OK, I'm in STL and set it up for East Coast servers. I was routinely in the 35-50 ping range so not terrible. Best sounds in an fps game I've ever played for sure.
TwinGunsLLP 13th Dec
Yep Insurgency Sandstorm, super fun I played three hours straight! REAL hardcore mode game, it's awesome!
superhanssolo 13th Dec
looks like a pretty fun game, 16 vs 16 max muliplayer? what are the servers like? on a side note, went to this shop today and asked for a mouse bungee for a wireless mouse
