Fifa 13 Career Mode - End of season CRASH

41 Replies 18,896 Views Created 11-10-2012

I've just finished my 1st season in career mode and it keeps crashing on June29th.

It's a complete crash, music cuts out, joypad stops working and have to force the shut down.

It's done this 8 times now and lots of ppl in forums are complaining of the same thing, although the date it crashes on varies.

What's being done about this?

Is there an update due soon?

Nothing yet.

Some people are saying it might be to do with the area code?

i.e. I bought mine in Manchester but the game might be registered in U.A.E or something???

Don't understand but it's really annoying.

I'll let you know if i find a cure tho.

If you find out let me know please!

Thanks.

Good news.

Just spoken to Sony and they said to try doing a delete and reinstall, and it's worked.

1. When you turn the PS on go into 'game' on the crossbar menu.

2. Go into 'game data utility'.

3. Select the fifa13 folder, press triangle and then delete the folder.

 

And it won't delete your saved progress either, that's saved in the 'saved data utility (PS3)' folder.

That should be alrite now but before you load the game up again, go into your saved data utility folder and quickly run through ur fifa13 components and make sure it doesn't say 'corrupt' on any of them. If any are corrupt it will be clearly indicated so if you can't see any, cool! Non of mine were corrupt but if you have some, just delete whatever it is.

Now go straight back into game and get playing again!

I didn't actually play on it after i reinstalled it. I just went about 5 days into the new season and saved it. Thought it was fixed. It isn't!!

Crashed again on the 8th or 9th i think. Not happy.

Spent an hour online talking to an EA adviser yesterday called Haninder who was *****ing useless. But he informed me that he would 'escalate' the issue to his supervisors as the issue couldn't be resolved. He said they would be in contact within 7days.

So i should have a solution by the 23rd. If i do, i'll post it on here. If i don't, i'll be even more ***** off. The games been broken longer now than it's been working.

Sorry i don't have any good news for you yet.

No email from them so i took the time to get in contact with them today. Toss-ers.

They say it's an ongoing issue and they're 'working hard' to resolve it.

So basically, they don't have a fix yet and they'll be in contact via email once they do. I'm hoping it's before fifa14 comes out.

Hi guys,

 

We have fed this issue back to EA so they are aware of it. Is this happening when you are connected online as this may relate to the EA servers perhaps?

 

A patch was made recently to rectify a number of reported issues, so you could try deleting the Game Data and re-installing the patch perhaps?

 

If I receive anymore info I will let you know.

 

Rabid

Hi.

For me it's happening both ways, whether i'm connected or not.

I've deleted and reinstalled more than once and apart from one occasion when i was able to progress about 10days further, it's been the same crash at the same stage.

The person i spoke to this afternoon seemed clueless tbh.

Thanks for your help tho!

Hi! Kudos to you for trying to solve this problem. I tried deleting the fifa folder but it didn't help. Hopefully you'll find the answer (and post it here).

This is killing me :/ I just finished my first season and when I click on end season, it freezes. Very frustrating. And at least you are getting replies from EA, I have rung, e-mailed, tweeted, facebooked about the problem and they avoid it left right and centre. I really hope they sort it out, manager career mode is the main reason I buy FIFA, so I really hope EA sort this out soon.

I did a live chat with them on their website.

Tbh, they've been ansolutely useless sorting this out.

 

And bcoz manager modes unplayable i've been going on Ultimate team, but that diconnects from the servers before i get my starter pack every time, so i also can't play ultimate team.

 

So seeing as i cant play manager mode, or play ulitmate team, i've been going on online seasons, but for some reason the ball's invisible. So now i can't really play that either.

 

It's beyond a disgrace and i think we should be due replacement discs now. It's gone on long enough and the majority seem to be able to play their games fine.

I'm absolutely disgusted. I have to do my uni work now just to keep busy, not impressed lol.

Tried that game data utility delete thing and it changed nothing. I can't believe it's been going on for this long. It's ridiculous, close to just trading the game in, it's unbelievable, what's the point in having it when I can only play bits of it, might as well download the demo for free and trade it in for another game. I'm gob smacked at how useless they have been

I had the same problem with the ball. All you have to do is change ball that you are playing with. The default ball will mess up sometimes.

 

 

Really hope they fix career mode soon...

Hi guys,

 

I believe that this is one of the known issues with Fifa 13.  Have you contacted EA regarding the issue?

Have indeed Sir. Yesterday was the third time.

I received an email from them today suggesting some basic steps to resolve it. But it was the 'deleting game data utility' process once more!

Thanks for the advice with the ball. Will try it next time and let my mates know too!

They've known about the issue for at least 3 weeks now so hopefully it'll be resolved soon.

Again, if i hear anything and get a fix, it'll be posted here as soon as i get it.

I've downloaded and deleted everything EA said to and finally i've worked my way through a season. I'm half way through my second season and as yet had no significant issues. It still crashes every now and then but i think thats because i'm trying to go through the menus as quick as possible and hitting buttons too quickly. It's not perfect because players like Meireles are still at Chelsea but it works, so i can live with that.

If anyone's still having issues i reccomend you go thru the official advice being given out by EA. It's worked for me, but it does mean that first season you completed has been a waste of time. Get over it and save over it ;)
