.:: FIFA 13 Bug Fixes :::

We know that many persons are facing different issues with their FIFA 13. Bellow you can find a list of known fixes for your problems! The list is in 3 different categories,PC,Xbox and PS3:

PC Bugs and Fixes:

  • If you experience lag use D3DOverrider and enable/force triple buffering and vsync on FIFA 13 exe. Also enable/force antialiasing on AMD Vision Engine Control Center (AMD/ATI) or Nvidia Control Panel (nVidia).
  • Always update your graphic card drivers! nVidiaAMD/ATI
  • For those with the Direct X crash issue please update your Direct X! Go here to find out how.
  • If your controller has problems with the demo please download these Xbox360 controller files and put them in your main FIFA 13 Demo folder.
  • For the keyboard users that have difficulties with the keyboard setup for the demo go in My Documents -> FIFA 12 and copy the file “buttonDATAsetup.ini” and paste it in the FIFA 13 folder from My Documents and FIFA 13 Demo folder.
  • If you have this problem, turn off the Anti-aliasing and V-Sync from your graphic card Control Panel OR set Anti-alising mode to application-controlled.
  • If you get the “APPCRASH” error select the fifaconfig.exe and FIFA 13 Demo.exe go to their Properties > Compatibility and select Win XP SP3 as compatibility mode.
  • Try the next solution if the demo crashes before launching: Open C:/My Documents / FIFA 13 Demo / instance0, select “replay0.bin”, right-click, Properties/ Check read only. Thanks to FGB for the tip!
  • If the game crashes before you start a match, go and update your graphic card drivers! nVidiaAMD/ATI
  • If the demo crashes at the language page you need to re-install Windows Media Player! Tutorial here. The intro can’t run without WMP, so the demo crashes.
  • For those with heavy stuttering/lag:
    From the fifaconfig.exe disable MSAA Options and Vsync and thick “Disable Windows Aero Theme”.For rendering quality is up to you how to set it but remember that an old PC would never run FIFA on High! Now follow the next steps:
    • Nvidia: Go to your graphic card control panel (right-click on desktop), go to Manage 3D Settings,Program Settings and add the FIFA 13 demo exe and set these settings for it. (At Texture Filtering – Quality put High Performance)
    • ATI: Get RadeonPro make a profile with the FIFA 13 Demo,select it,click on Profile > Visual and add these settings: Anti-Aliasing = Application Controlled, Anti-Aliasing Filter = Multisampling, Anti-Aliasing Mode = Multi Sample, Anisotropic Filtering = Application Controlled. From the Advance and Tweak tabs turn OFF Vsync & Tripple Buffering.

Note that these are only standard settings and will not fix your problem 100% because everyone has different specs. You can change and tweak the settings yourself until you reach an ideal configuration for your game and the lag and stuttering will stop. Also don’t forget to use the D3DOverrider!

  • If you still get the crash before you start a match after you updated your graphic cards drivers try to ALT + Tab before you click play match,return to the game and enter the match.
  • Another fix for the start up crash is to download msvcp100.dll & msvcr100.dll and place them inside “FIFA 13 Demo\Game” directory(where fifa13_demo.exe is there). Thanks to blade for the fix!
  • If you get the ”E0001” error is because you graphic card doesn’t have the Shader Model 3.0! You must try to run your game on low settings and do the next: check that the resolution from the fifaconfig.exe is correct, uncheck Vsync from fifaconfig.exe and try this fix. Also try to update you graphics card driver!
  •  Ultimate team disconnection after a match fix: Uninstall Hamachi or Tunngle from your PC.
  • Career Mode crashes fixes:

  • Score counted for two times fix: You must disable the end game sending statistics to your mail. Online mode / Settings / Match Report / Cancel ending at end game. Remember that your opponent must do the same thing in order to work!
  • Always check for updates from Origin! Go to Origin and right-click to your FIFA 13 game and select “Check for Update” and if it doesn’t work select “Repair Install“.
  • FIFA 13 is currently unable to support special characters (such as àéñõü).

    Taffs:

    Hi I play Ultimate team FIFA 13 using PS3, I am facing a very big problem. My players keep passing and sliding by their own without my intention. Whenever I get to the opposition box, My players passes the ball by itself preventing myself to shoot. Please help

    I have the same problem, only this happens when i play toghether with my friends and only on one of the controllers. It also changes if my team plays with offside trap and sends my CB into attack, tells wings to change side etc.. the problem is only in fifa13 and only in matches. No problem with the controller in other games or in the menu.
