FIFA 13 Crashes, Errors, Connection, Freezes and Fixes

By   /   3 years ago

FIFA 13 is out, and the Football community across the globe is quite excited about it. However, the excitement can be spoiled with the inevitable problems one may face on an unlucky day. FIFA games usually don’t give much trouble, but if you have been unable to play FIFA 13 on PC, you can refer to our troubleshooting guide for workarounds.

#1 FIFA 13 Crashes – No Windows Media Players
Before the issue gets patched up officially, you should make sure that Windows Media Player is installed in your OS to avoid the crashes.

#2 FIFA 13 Free Kick Problem – Players Cluttered Together
The issue has been noted by the developer, and they are working on the fix.

#3 FIFA 13 Freezes With Custom Keyboard Controls
The problem existed in the demo but with the latest patch, it should not be present in the full release. If you are looking for keyboard control customization, you can refer to our guide here.

#4 FIFA 13 Invisible Man Free Kick Bug
The issue was noted in the demo and should be fixed in the full release. Just make sure that you are using the latest version of video card drivers.

#5 FIFA 13 Crashes After the Game Logo
It may be due to some peripherals connected to the PC, including your controller. If the game works fine after you disconnect the controller (Xbox 360), you should try disabling and then enabling it. Updating the drivers to the latest can also resolve the issue for you.

You can also try the following work around to fix the problem:

  • Go to your documents folder and then the FIFA 13 folder
  • In the folder, open the file fifasetup with notepad
  • Change the aspectratio to 1 instead of 1,33336.

#6 FIFA 13 Crashes On Choosing Play Match
It seemsrunning the game as administrator can fix your problem. Furthermore, try the workaround mentioned in #5.

#7 FIFA 13 – Career Load Crash issue (Xbox 360)
Try loading the career after installing the game on to the hard drive of your console. This can fix the issue for you.

#8 FIFA 13 – Connection Bugs
If you are sure that your internet connection is not a problem and are still being disconnected from the online game modes, you better contact support.

#9 FIFA 13 Stuck on the Loading Screen
If you are using EA’s central app, delete it to resolve the issue.

#10 FIFA 13 Password/Account Locked Issue
If you are having issues related to your account, you can find a detailed solution here.

#11 FIFA 13 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. FIFA 13 seems to have troubles with 5.1 surround system.

#12 FIFA 13 – Career Mode Crash
The problem seems to be related to a game face bug. If you delete it and don’t load a new one, the career mode can load up for you. Furthermore, make sure that you have deleted everything related to FIFA 12 (except for the save games) on your system.

If you come across any other issues in FIFA 13, let us know in the comments and we will help you out!

  • Sushruta

    The return key is not responding in FIFA 13 . . . Please help !

  • Justin

    Also, every time it crashes it says “Device Driver has stopped responding and has recovered.” Any ideas?

  • Justin

    How do you play as an administrator? I have problem #6

  • Rasmus

    Playing on PC and return button doesn’t respond. This is not a big problem outside matches as I can click “advance” with the mouse but a major problem in-game every time I get a free-kick outside the penalty area coz the tactical free kick menu pops-up and I can’t use my mouse to click advance so I’m stuck and can’t go anywhere. Fix return problem or tell me how to shot off the pop up screen.

    • Sushruta

      I found out the solution . . . Instead of Enter key, press Ctrl + Enter and it will work ( it has worked for me)

  • kevi

    What is happening to FIFA 13 by EA Sports? Have tried different installations of the game still crashes. First it crashed anytime i want to play match, then I uninstalled that one. Tried installing another one from blackbox and it crashes to desktop immediately after the logo when you run the FIFA 13 application. What the hell is wrong with FIFA?!!! Think i’ll just stick to playing PES 2013 but I love FIFA n thats why I am concerned cos i always like to do a comparison of both soccer titles each year. Electronic Arts is not getting their acts right these days, The RUN drags n freezes on my 6gb ram nvidia system and now FIFA 13 can’t even work. DAMN! Any body with a workable solution for me? Or maybe i should just 4get FIFA 13 for good cos it seems the game is an issue i’ll have to use a tissue and shove it down the toilet.

    ARE you f**king kdding me! I had accumulated over about 60 seasons in FIFA 12 but acrosss different saves, because each time it decides to crash in the year 2021 or something.
    FIFA 13 did not have to be made(my career mode is seemingly crashed in the second season now). They just needed to make a FIFA that does not crash. Screw messi’s 360 super duper precise dribbling and flashy crap; THE ONLY THING NEEDED IS A FIFA THATS UN-CRASHABLE.

  • WAC

    Playing in career mode and onto my 2nd season in January and my game crashes and nothing I can do. 2 weeks effort gone. Seriously unimpressed that they put a game on the market without adequate testing

  • Thomas

  • Casualer

    Game crashes and exits on “Welcome To Fifa 13 screen”.
    What should I do?
    Thank you.

  • Shubham

    Whenever I change the resolution, they show this- E0001. I am playing the game on its lowest resolution(800*600).. But I am dying to play it on better resolutions.

    • Ali Asif

      Politeness, is a thing my friend. Anyway, if your head gets cool, read the news about the upcoming fix to address the connectivity and crash issues.

      • Fernando Torres


        I agree with KING. Ali, if you saved up and bought a BMW on the RELEASE DATE, with one brake pad short and would you drive around with bliss waiting for a fix from BMW?No. Do gametesters even test these games?
        And these ‘fixes’ are a load of crap; FIFA 12 still has more issues than anything.

        Have a good day.

        (PS. ORigin is a load of crap as well)

  • Hussain Gani

    Why in my Fifa 13 Career Modes, whilst simulating in the Calendar (pressed Advanced) it freeze? The music stops, the scoreline at the bottom stops and no controls work on the PS3 altogether. It is really frustarting, I am 3/4 into my season and this has happened twice now. I have never had a problem like this on all the other previous FIFA editions. What can I do to fix this problem? I have even rebuilt my database, restored my PS3 system and restored file system yet it freezes still. Any advise?

    • john

      I have found that in career mode it crashes when you are about to sign a player. If you dont try to sign any players or free agents then you are ok, just when they are about to agree the contract it fooks up. have a good youth policy and dont sign anyone and your ok. shouldnt be like this, load of shite for £40!

      • David

        I’m using FIFA 13 on XBOX and just had exactly same problem. So, I cannot sign any new players in order not to crash the game. WTH!

  • 123

    This game is horrible, Career mode freezes & Every match i have like 70% of the possession & about 10-12 shots.. & The computer has 1 shot & scores everytime.. You can have the fastest player on the game vs the slowest defender & the defender always catches you up??.. This Isnt Fifa, EA have Ruined it completely in my opinion.. Iv never taken a game back b4 but with this i am 100%.

  • JP Rock

    I’m using Xbox360. Whenever I want to load a Career I started as a Manager IT FREEZES. I have started new careers as a manager and played on to almost a year, but when I save and want to load back to it, it just freezes. I even have started nerw ones whotout doing anything and it doesn’t load but only freezes. I have a Career as a player and it wokrs fine. I mostly like to play as Manager so it is a BIG BUMMER. I cleared the cache, delited prior careers and started new ones on my hard drive. Nothing seems to work. I need help.

  • Frank

    In career mode VP I will go to edit pro to change boots or shirt or traits and when I’m done I will try to exit but it says “the spurs team is full your player has been sent to free agents” something like that and it won’t let me exit so I have to restart the game… For it being Fifa 13 I expect a game a lot better… FIFA 10!!!

  • Mark

    I’ve got Fifa 13 on the xbox 360. On my career mode it seems that players from all other teams aren’t growing in potential at all (after half of the game), while almost all of my own players have grown at least 3 or 4 in potential.
    I wonder if that’s normal or there’s something wrong with it.

  • David

    I’ve got this on PC Windows 7, I use logitech f510 controllers. The game shuts down my computer, ie it switches off completely, then needs start-up repair or freezes onscreen with a buzzing sound. Task manager won’t work when it freezes. I either want it fixed or I want a refund, I downloaded it, will I be able to get a refund?

The players react as if its there but it is completely invisible. Quite difficult to defend against. Also experiencing crash at the end of the August 2013 transfer window. The team info screens seem to be glitching out as well as being incredibly slow. See ya later €60. Any help/ comments appreciated, have already deleted all fifa 12 info. Will wipe it all and start again. Boo to you EA. Not impressed.

  • Ali Asif

    Guys, has any of you contacted support about the issue of game freezing in the career mode etc? (specially on consoles). This will help to resolve the issue faster as they will be officially notified by the problem.

    • yes

      YES! It will probably take them weeks to do anything about it. This was the same issue with fifa 11 and fifa 12.

  • kevin

    Fuckin shit spent 4 hours on fifa what happens fuckin freezes didnt save,spent another 2 hours screen freeze again didnt save SORT IT OUT

    • jamie L


  • Patrick

    I play fifa on ps3 and am having huge issues with the season menu. about one in every 3 or 4 times I connect to an opponent then get taken away to the loading screen with the one on one with the keeper, it just stays in that one on one screen and never goes on to the game. maybe its a connection problem but surely they can put a quit option in as the only way to get back to the game menu is to quit the whole game and go load it up agian. very annoying. does fifa need to have 100 loading screens when it starts up? this game is a rip off man its exactly the same as fifa 12, i never get mad at a game like i do when i play fifa. the AI players are stupid and you never have any time to do anything with the online lag it just isn’t smooth and theres no point playing against the computer as its so sytematic. why can’t they make it fun? fifa 06 is the best fifa of all time i enjoy playing it more than any that have been released since because its FUN not trying to be overly realistic and failing. and the players look stupid. whats with their expressions or lack there of? they look like stick figures with photographs of players faces stuck to their heads. they can’t smile for some reason. its 2012 surely there’s better tchnology out there. EA is a piece of shit. 2K would make an insane football game.

    • clarky1205

      What about season mode on 360. when you play a game it is recording 2 results. if you win a game it gives you 6 pts lose 1 and it shows LL in results stats. nuts!!!

    • Stu

      I am having the exact same problem. Sometimes I load up seasons mode only for it to tell me I don’t have an online pass, even though I played it the last few days. Secondly, when it does decide to let me play season mode and I get to the one on one screen before the start of a game it don’t Fucking do anything!!!!!! It just stays on this screen until I get pissed off with waiting and turn it off, this is happening continuosly. I know this is just a game but we pay our hard earned money to get messed about. It seems one thing after another with PS3 and Fifa 13 in particular. Not happy!

  • michael

    Just got through first season with Liverpool with Carroll, spearing and mukendi out on loans and Sahin at the club as a loanee.
    Just started 2nd season and the only loan return I got was mukendi and sahin is still loaned at my club.
    So unless loans are 12 months long, I can only come to the conclusion that the game is screwed?

    • tom

    Seriously it is so annoying to buy a game for such an expensive price and not be able to even play a single GAME. I am so MAD. Before you release a game like this, fucking check EVERYTHING damn it. I can’t do a shit… keep freezing and crashing. THIS SUCKS.

  • Sam

    This is a JOKE all these problems already with FIFA 13 and its only been out 2 seconds, on my ps3 i go on career mode pick my team then edit the minutes and diificulty an that, then i do my managers name and how he will look then click advance, then like a news article comes up about my manager and his new club and the loading bar reaches the end and then freezes ive tried it about 20 times now and still no luck pleaseeeee !!!! someone help me ???
    every FIFA i have ever bought there has always been a certain problem in each one takes the mick, youd expect better from such a popular and well talked about game :(

    • Phil

      i can’t believe that on consoles there are so many different problems with the game. I play it on PC and in career mode as manager the games plays fine until i save my progress then quit the game, then when i load up the game go to career and load the career i was playing the game crashes, but on my be a pro career it works fine it only crashes on the manager career. The reason why most ppl buy consoles to play games is because of the ability to just put the disk in and away you go not to put in the disk load up the game and have so many issues, sounds like the Console players are having the same problem as us PC gamers how did EA make this possible. EA sort out your game because when PES 14 comes out i will buy that instead of FIFA 14. I paid £40 for a faulty game and can not return it to the shop because the product installs and i am able to play it, so just because EA has released a faulty product i am £40 down until they decide to fix all these issues i can’t play manager mode at the moment because i am sick of having to start a new career every time i want to play in manager mode.

  • Jamie

    I have the same PS3 issue with manager mode not going past May 31 after I enter contract details for a player I’d loaned with an option to buy. I don’t have a game face to delete or an internet connection connected to my PS3 either.
    This is totally retarded. The game is awesome I’d just like to be able to play longer than a season.

    PLEASE HELP!!!!!!!!!!!
    I have just completed my first season on manager mode, i bought chamberlan at the start of the season on loan with a option to buy him in the deal just offered him his contract which he has accepted and when i went to accept/reject to accept the contract the game completely freezes I have tried it a few times and it just says the same thing! any suggestions of what i can do?

    • MEE

      same thing for me 😐 loaned Sterling with right of redemption/buyout decided to buy, offered contract, Liverpool said that they dont want to loan him (dafuq? he played entire season with my team) chose option to make offer and CRASH EVERY DAMN TIME.

      • Guy

        Same here. Even if I ignore the option to buy, once I try to buy ANY player in the transfer market in the second season the game freezes completely.

        • Chris

          Exactly the same here! Word for word

  • Joe

    Als we op de Xbox seizoenen willen spelen en het team geselecteerd hebben dan word er gezocht naar een tegenstander, vervolgens zegt de Xbox dat de verbinding met de tegenstander verbroken is.(er was nog geen tegenstander gevonden). Of wanneer je bij het inschieten voor de wedstrijd, wanneer je, normaal gesproken op start moet drukken, komt er dus niks in beeld, we kunnen niet op start drukken en ook niet terug. Zo hebben wij al 10 keer in een uur tijd de Xbox aan en uit moeten zetten. Heeft iemand hier een oplossing voor?

  • potato

    I’m on Xbox 360 and have just started my second season on manager career, my first game of the season is a against west ham and I simulated it. At the end of the game it had the guy saying the results of all the games but after the first result it freezes. I then restarted it and the same thing happened again so I turned itoff again then waited about half an hour and turned it back on, and it happened again so I restarted it, played the match, and it froze again when saying the results. Does anyone know if there is a way I can fix it without starting a new career?

    • potato

      Also, I don’t know if it’s related but all the players that were loaned out before I started the career didn’t come back after the season even though it said it was a season long loan, and it still said that they were loaned out.

  • Will

  • Matevž

    Hy again,

    I’ve wrote here already but my comment was deleted. Was it deleted cus you are working on it or cus I already should get the answer on my email (I have nothing on my email, or is problem somewhere else. Anyhow I know there has been many comments so I know that if you are working on it it’s alot of work.

    Another thing, is EA working on some patches that will prevent this and if so when do you think they will be available and where.

  • joe

    On PS3, every time I try to load one of my saved career modes (there are four, 2 of which are auto saves of the 2nd) It loads the career mode home screen then freezes before I can click on anything. The music stops and I cant leave that screen, I also cannot use the ps button to quit the game and have to tun off my console using the button on the ps3. What do I do?

  • christian 777

    Im using ps3 and the fifa game bought from best buy. on may 30th of my first season as a coach it keeps freezing. I tried to delete all fifa 12 And its still not going throu may 30th.

    • shaun

      Hi, i had the same problem with the 360 version. I had to set up my 360 console from scratch by deleting everything. Then when i tried to play fifa 13 without anyother info stored on my console i was able to progress incareer mode to season 2. So far so good. Good luck.

      • christian 777

        so you just delete all on your ps3 also your seved in fifa 13

      • mike

        Doesn’t matter. I’ve played through 3 careers(coach), and all of them had the “same date” freeze eventually. It’s a joke that EA released this game like this.

        • Ali Asif

          It’s hard to believe that so many people are facing the issue on consoles. I just hope that the issues will be taken into consideration soon and they will fix it as when it comes to consoles, you can’t do much to fix the issue due to limited customization.

          • Derek

            This could backlash against E.A and customers could go to p.e.s. I’ve got all the fifa games. I really enjoy the career mode. With if crashing on me all the time I’ve lost interest in fifa until problem is resolved. The game shouldn’t have been released in such condition

  • Jiri

    My controller freezes sometimes after I press start.. And it only happends to me while playing fifa. What ever I do, it will not continue to work. The only button working is the Xbox button. So now I am forced to leave an other winning game.. :S

  • sam

    It takes me about 3 or 4 attempts to get an online season match to work. Also it will load up and lose connection straight away leaving me to search for an opponent again. Any ideas to stop this happening?

  • emron

    Well I play on the career mode and when i press advance to make days pass it sometimes freezes. So annoying. ps3

  • Xbox

    Im play on Xbox and had the game crash on career mode where the game will not advance beyond a certain point in the season, it simply crashes and even if you re-load it, does not work.

    I managed to fix it by changing all the game settings (Difficulty, time of each half, game speed etc) and then saving it as a new save game. (I.E dont overrite the old one just save it as a new career 1 or what ever) then I restarted the console and continued career instead of load career and it worked for me.

  • Luka

    hello. i have a weird problem. i bought the ps3 version and my system doesn’t even read the disc. all other games works but when i put in fifa 13 it doesn’t even recognise a disc in it and later on the motor for pulling the disc in and out starts for a second and the disc stays in and nothing happens. but when i put the fifa 13 in my other ps3 which is jailbroken, the game is recognised(but of course i don’t boot cause it would have to update). any solutions? i tried everything, resetted the settings, unplugged the ps3 etc. thanks

    • Ali Asif

      Many users on PS3 seems to have this problem. I am not sure about the proper fix. Have your game been updated recently (a patch may be?).

      • christian 777


    • Luke

  • michael

    wow. career mode was working just fine when i didn’t sign in and now during the summer transfers of my second season it crashes a few days before my first pre-season match. i deleted all the files from fifa 12. deleted game face. the only files i have are my fifa 13 career mode, squad update, EA catalogue and profile settings. it keeps freezing on the same date when i advance. anyone having the same issue?

    • Joseph

      Same stuff, It keeps freezing when I go into manager Career mode and use my credits to get international “call up” to manage, when I try and play again, it freezes, WTF…

  • Ben

    So if we want to play fifa 13 crash free we should delete ALL FIFA 12 content from our system. Including previous Career Modes and such?

    I’m on XBox 360 the problem seems to be if you transfer ANY of the default roster free agents then CM will freeze immediately. I simmed to January with a Created Creation Centre team and with edited rosters with no problems, bought players, played a game, simmed games, scouted players…. Try multiple CM options only thing that seemed to be the game changer was FA being moved prior to CM to actual teams.
    Either way UGH

  • joost

    Fixed it, deleted the gameface, installed the game, works fine now :), thanks everyone.

  • Michael workman

    On my first season on career mode, just played my first friendly and the game crashes if I go on sell players. I’m on ps3 and have deleted all fifa 12 saves etc.

  • Sam

    Ive played Fifa 13 today on PS3 and there is one consistent error, on career mode when you start a match you see the players line up, shake hands etc, but when it gets to the point where it will show you, your team and the opponents team line up the game will freeze then I will have to restart my console it has happened 6 times at the exact same point. (I’m playing career mode with my created team from creation centre I don’t know if that has an effect, and I’ve not downloaded a game face) How can I stop this? or do I have to wait and hope for EA to make a patch.

    I have a problem with crush also. Mine happens in kickoff mode when I’m selecting teams. Also I already played one game in Ultimate team and crush happened after I played it.

    please help,

    • Matevž

      I play on pc…

  • Fifa 13 Player

    The commentary just -can not- work, because the files are corrupted. You can check this for yourself, look at for example “english_gb.big” for your language. It is about 400kb and must have a size of ~500mb.

    EA knows this issue, PC Users like me all have to wait for a patch.
    If you want commentary right now, you can set origin to english(US) and reinstall the game because the “english_US.big” file is the only correct one till now.

    I will just wait for a fix and then set or download GB english commentary instead of the german one.

  • Josh Nowlan

    I am having problems when attempting to play a match in career mode, as the game freezes before the training skills warm up. This also occurred in the Fifa 13 early release edition, can you please advise me on what to do, I have deleted my game face from fifa 13 and it stil does it.

  • DyVo

    I’ve tried all different settings, but the game keeps stuttering. While the Fifa 13 demo was running smoothly. Also some sidelines disappear during the skill games. My specs are:

    Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit SP1
    Intel Core i7 @ 2.30GHz
    8,00 GB Dual-Channel DDR3 @ 798MHz
    Generic PnP Monitor (1920×1080@60Hz)
    Intel HD Graphics 4000
    NVIDIA GeForce GT 650M

    So, I think it does meet the system requirements..?

  • dominick

    Like many people here fifa 13 just crashes at start up. I see the fifa est 2011 logo come up then the screen goes black and then nothing. Installing graphics drivers changed nothing nor did a reinstallation of fifa 13….

  • Zombie

    On-load freezing of careers is due to the gameface. But the in-career freezing has nothing to do with gameface.(well it may as well, but i have no created content, including game face.) Ive tried 3 different careers as a manager, and all three freeze in certain places in the specific career. Like my Milan manager game, it freezes just after the second fixture in the first season against Napoli. Ive tried simming, playing, and skipping via calendar. All attempts lead to complete system freeze. Which makes it unable to get any farther in the career. A similar freeze happens in my Manager Career as PSG chief. I had previously made a deal with flamengos for their youngster Adryan before saving. After i had saved i advanced a couple of days then the option to sign Adryan pops up. No matter what I choose there(Sign/Reject/Stall) The game freezes. And since I had saved after the deal was done, it happens everytime i load as well, making that saved career unable to advance. The third occasion was again different and i was actually screwed out of 2000FCC. I started a Manager Career as York City. I then used the FCC(Fifa Club Coins or whatever the hell they are called) to buy the Club Buyout Item from the catalog. I was going to make them into a top premier team. To my own foolishness i did not save right after the purchase of the club. Instead I bought quite a few players and tried to advance once, and it froze. When I reloaded, I had only approx 240,000 dollars(starting amount), none of the players i bought, and did not get the 2000 coins back. It’s very sad that EA can not extensively test one of the games biggest parts. It’s very frustrating and disheartening to be so amped up for a game to come out, finally get the game, and play for 8 hours, and for it to be AMAZING, only to lose that save game due to an impassable freeze. 8 hours of my life gone, for nothing. And thats just one career. Ive done 3. And on my 4th now.

    • harryboy

      The same thing is happening to me on my Xbox 360. I’m playing as a player on a career got sent out on loan and I’m now about 20 games in to the season and every time I try and play this fixture the screen goes black. I’ve tried starting a few games behind on a different save and as soon as I get to this fixture it breaks. I’m tempted to take the game back but I was so excited for it to come out.

    I have played 19 online games so far. But right now, every time I try to play a game I get stuck on the loading screen with the player against the goally. Have tried to disconnect everything and its still happening. What should I do? Btw I can’t leave this screen, so I need to quit the game and then turn it back on.

  • Malte

    but i still got a problem: i cant set my sound to surround or stereo. my notebook only supports stereo. The commentary audio issue makes me crazy… have no idea to fix it.
    sorry for my bad english, greetings from germany!

  • MIZU34

    I have FIFA 13 for the PS3, when it goes to show the replay, especially when it goes to slow-motion, the replay lags. This happens after a goal is scored, off-sides, yellow/red card. I have no issue with this on the XBOX 360 version. I’ve noticed the same problem on Madden NFL 13 on the PS3, yet it’s not an issue on the XBOX 360 version.

    I don’t think the problem is my PS3 per say, as I can play NBA 2k12, PES 2013, etc fine… it’s just Madden 13 and FIFA 13 for the PS3 that’s giving me this issue.

  • omatje

    my game freeze at the startup. i dont use EA’s central app, but still ist stuck then right after i press start

  • Shake2375

    I got two Problems.

    Second. When get to the window where you should choose your player profile(the one after you choose the language) i could chosse between the profile i saved before and making a new one. if i choose the old one the game just turns off. i tried doing new saves already.

    I had the startup crash (problem#5), too but after i changed the mydocs->FIFA 13->instance0->replay0 file to read only it worked
