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.

Mine did the same thing this morning but from what I can tell, as long as you have your install path set to the correct location of your CURRENT BF4 install, when you hit download in origins it will recognize the installed files and ONLY download the new portion (about 7Gigs). Although now that I have it installed fully I haven't noticed ANY differences, I still join via battlelog, I have no desktop icon nor any other option to launch BF4, I haven't looked much into it though..

I need to go to the gym, sadly I am too skinny to care
Angry_Cuban13 12:58 PM
No gym at your college?
Texas_Flexas 12:53 PM
Absolutly, too bad thats a drive. But worth it
Angry_Cuban13 12:36 PM
Long enough to go to the gym though.

Having a 2 hour break between classes kinda blows. Too short to go home, too long to stay entertained.

Also, the PVP aspect of it is really fun. It is comparable to Quake and Unreal Tournament.

If we keep growing we are planning on adding fireteam channels under the Destiny 2 channel so it isn't so crazy in the main channel.

I mean, I personally enjoy it. We have a pretty active crew (2-4) people who log in every day that can help you out if you have any questions.
