FIFA 12 Crashes, Freezes, Stuttering, Lag, Keyboard Controls Mapping, and Performance Fixes


FIFA 12 has been released in North America and though stunning in many ways, it still fails on several technical grounds for PC gamers. Starting with messy keyboard controls that will limit your ability to execute several skills and moves set.

If that wasn’t enough, the unbearable lag and poor overall performance and stuttering will ruin your day. Add to that random crashes and freezes and it becomes your first experience with FIFA 12 on PC.

EA has already released patches and updates that address few of these issues but sadly everything is not fixed.

So if you are experiencing any of these issues, you may want to look at the workarounds in our troubleshooting guide to temporarily resolve these issues till EA fixes everything with future patches and updates.

1# FIFA 12 Installation Problems
You have the disc version but you are asked to download it again from Origin ? Yes, sometimes you may end up doing that. Some of you may also not be able to play the game because of the release check, since FIFA 12 hasn’t been released in some regions.

Or You have downloaded the game, and when you click the executable, nothing happens, it just sits there and creates a crashdump file when you try to run it. If that’s the case, you may want to run it as admin in compatibility mode.

2# Update Broke FIFA 12
When you install FIFA 12, it prompts you to install an update – you install the update but still can’t play the game. Well, you may have to wait a bit more to play this game because obviously something is wrong at EA’s end, and when it is fixed, you will be able to play the game.

3# How To Change Arena Ball
A sweet trick if you don’t like the default Arena Ball. Just put one of the following codes in your rna.ini file – create one if you can’t find it. Don’t forget to remove the ball name that is in brackets. If you want to play with Seitiro EPL ball, put FREE_ROAM_BALL_ID=5 in your rna.ini file.

FREE_ROAM_BALL_ID=5 (Seitiro EPL)
FREE_ROAM_BALL_ID=9 (Seitiro high-vis)
FREE_ROAM_BALL_ID=8 (Seitiro A-League)
FREE_ROAM_BALL_ID=7 (Seitiro)
FREE_ROAM_BALL_ID=6 (Seitiro La Liga)
FREE_ROAM_BALL_ID=3 (Jabulani Gold)
FREE_ROAM_BALL_ID=2 (Jabulani)
FREE_ROAM_BALL_ID=23 (Puma Ligue 1)
FREE_ROAM_BALL_ID=220 (Umbro England)
FREE_ROAM_BALL_ID=199 (Tracer Hi-Vis)
FREE_ROAM_BALL_ID=198 (Tracer)

4# FIFA 12 Crashes and Shuts Down PC
You start your first match and in second half, FIFA 12 crashes to desktop and shuts down your PC.

5# FIFA 12 Lag Fix
If you are experience lag and poor performance with FIFA 12, download and Install This App.

  • Open D3DOVERRIDER
  • ADD FIFA 12.EXE (+) to the list.
  • Application detection level (HIGH)
  • Force triple buffering (ON)
  • Force Vsync (ON)

Now Run game with D3D Application open. It’s a perfect lag fix for ATI users. For Nvidia users it does improve performance and fixes lag but not to that extent.

6# FIFA 12 Lag, Stuttering and Performance Fix
If you are experiencing low performance, lag, or stuttering while playing FIFA 12, disable AA and Vsync and run the game again. You can also try running the game in windowed mode to resolve the issue temporarily. You can follow the steps below to resolve this issue:

  • Disable in game Vsync
  • Disable in game Anti Aliasing
  • Force Vsync with D3DOverrider (You can find the link above).
  • Force Anti Aliasing on *ATI Catalyst Control Panel or Nvidia Control Panel.

7# FIFA 12 Freezes With Xbox 360 Controllers
FIFA 12 seems to have issues with default Xbox 360 controller drivers and if you are experiencing freezing issues and stuttering with the game while playing with your Xbox 360 controller on PC.

Uninstall Xbox 360 controller drivers and re-connect them. Let Windows configure the controller and start the game. You will definitely see improvement. FIFA 12 will run smoothly and won’t freeze.

8# FIFA 12 PC Controls Issue
You can follow the instructions here to resolve it, if you can’t configure the controls through FIFA 12 Setup settings.

9# How to Manually Map Keyboard Keys in FIFA 12
If you want to manually set keyboard controls in FIFA 12, you have to edit the buttonDataSetup.ini. Search the file with “keyboard” keyword and edit the button mapping as you want.

AddController “Keyboard”
AddMap SC_RIGHT VB_AI_LS_RIGHT

10# FIFA 12 Audio – Commentary Fix
Run the game in stereo. You can set the sound to stereo by going into the settings of your audio control panel.

11# Nvidia Performance Fix
Make sure you don’t download the newly release Battlefield 3 Beta drivers since they mess up FIFA 12. Keep earlier version of Nvidia drivers and things will be much smoother.

12# FIFA 12 Crashes To Desktop
For some people are experience random crashes to desktop, unplugging the controller has fixed the issue. Try your luck!

13# Origin Update Freezes – FIFA 12
Try to run the game as admin and then update the game.

14# How To Run FIFA 12 Windowed ?
I want you to not bash EA when you can’t find how to run the game Windowed. Just put FULLSCREEN = 0 in the fifasetup.ini file in your documents folder and you will be able to run the game in Windowed mode.

15# Game Face Freezes FIFA 12
When you go to download your Game Face, it freezes at every 5%. To fix this issue, erase your game face at My FIFA 12 – where it says profile – load/save/delete. Hit delete and delete the game face file. After that quit the game and restart. You should be able to download your game face again without any problems.

Let us know if you face any other issues, and we will try to help you out.

      But now the game crashes to desktop after configuring keyboard buttons…

      When it’good, it’s like this : http://www.hafidaggoune.com/fifa12mac/goodgraphics.png
      It changes every time during the match between bad and good… unbearable !

      Where did you download the Origin from Nohj?

    • http://echenze.wordpress.com Emmanuel Chenze

      Hi I’ve just installed FIFA 12 but i’m getting this error message; “Origin is not installed. Please reinstall origin to play the game”. What could be the issue?

    • Luis

      The installation of this game sucks. I am an IT professional and this is all I can say:

      1) The installation procedures inside the box are wrong as thay suggest that you can install the game without Origin (users with disk) when in fact you apparently can’t.

      2) Origin sucks. It installs correctly, then asks for an optional update installation, forces you to go ahead with the update, since cancelling doesn’t allow you to install FIFA, and then fails the update with a misterious error, giving no detail except “Origin can’t confirm the installation” or whatever.

      3) EA sucks. All these game protection softwares end up protecting YOU from playing the game you bought. MAYBE THAT IS A GOOD THING after all!

      What a bunch of incompetent idiots.

    • Adithya

      Hey Momo….what you can do is to go to your installation folder(directory where your game is installed), go to \Game> fifasetup> fifaconfig> open the application and go to \Game Settings\ In the aspect ratio, choose your choice..(if you have no clue as to your screen resolution, right click on your desktop> personalisation> display> check your current resolution and put the same)….Have fun!

    • Rejdyn

      I cant download my game face. I have my face on ea web, but in game not. Any ideas? Thanks

    • transvin

      I am a keyboard user. I use ‘s’ key for passing and ‘d’ key for shoot. (A & B controller action buttons respectively. And also ‘d’ key for player contain and ‘s’ for teammate contain. (B & A respectively)

      But in fifa12 full version, the keys assigned for defense are interchanged. And whenever I try to interchange them again, the attacking keys also change i.e. the ‘d’ key becomes pass button and ‘s’ key becomes shoot button.

      In fifa12 demo, i was able to change controller settings in the initial menu and I successfully interchanged A & B buttons (* to ps3/xbox controls).

      But now I don’t find the option to edit the positions of A & B in fifa12 full version.

      Does anyone know how to solve this issue? I just want B for player contain and A for teammate contain, without changing the attacking actions of A & B (i.e. pass & shoot respectively). Thanks in advance.

      P.S. I’ve tried copying my Fifa11 settings to Fifa12 document folder, it didn’t work.

    • Momo

      I try to add line FULLSCREEN = 0 in fifasetup.ini and do the same in the rna.ini (that i create in the fifa installation directory ) but nuthing, i cant play the game in window mode! please help !

    • Peter

      to #14: There is no fifasetup.ini anywhere in the game-folder! creating it anywhere/everywhere doesn’t work either…

      • Retep

        The Fifasetup.ini file can be found in your documents\fifa 12
        There you can edit it, but it didn’t worked for me. I tried alt+enter like many people say, but ain’t working either….

      • TheWall

        Try documents in your user files in the fifa folder there, there is the fifasetup.ini.

        My Fifa12 simply does not load. I´ve read a solution to set the documents/fifa12/inventory0/replay0 file to unwritable. However i do not have that file, even not hidden.

        If anyone has news on my problem, i appreaciate the help.

      • MagnificusDrei

        There is a fifasetup.ini file.
        C:\Users\…\Documents\FIFA 12 You can put the line in but that doesn’t seem to work.

        • Seann

          His instructions for how to launch in windowed mode don’t work. He said people shouldn’t bash EA because they could not find how to do it. But the fact is EA purposely removed this feature from the game. It was implemented in the demo then they removed it from the final product. EA have confirmed this on their forums.

          Maybe he should test and see if what he’s saying is correct before telling people not to be upset with EA.
