However, unlike most of the console gamers, PC players are more vulnerable to the issues that can hinder with a smooth experience specially around Launch. You need not to worry though, as we have got your back.

While EA tries to resolve the issues at its end, we have shortlisted the common problems faced by FIFA 15 players and their possible fixes and workarounds.

You can check out the list of FIFA 15 errors below:

#1 FIFA 15 Companion App Not Working
In preparation for the launch of FIFA 15, companion app on the mobile devices may not work for you. Once the game gets launched, the mobile app will work as it should normally.

#2 FIFA 15 Connectivity and Lag Issues
As you might already know, to get a smoother experience online, you need to make sure that some of the ports are opened and aren’t blocking the connection. Which ones you might ask? Following is the list for respective platforms:

#3 FIFA 15 Crashes during Intro Video
Some of the players faced this issue in the demo and although the full game might not present the issue at all, this workaround should get you started if you experience the crash with the full game after the release.

#4 FIFA 15 .Net Framework Error While Launching the Game
Many users reported that they were receiving .Net Framework error on starting the game. Although we don’t have a confirmed working fix for it, but I believe that if you try out the general troubleshooting for this error, this could fix the issue.

Simplest thing to do is re-install the latest .Net framework on your PC.

#5 FIFA 15 Censored Word Error When Naming Your Ultimate Team
It’s a known bug at EA’s end, and they are looking into it. In the meanwhile, if your name of choice isn’t working, you can try using another name or maybe wait until the issue is fixed, which can take some time.

#6 FIFA 15 Black Bars Issue/Resolution Fix
Sometimes, if the full screen scaling is not enabled via your hardware, you can have black borders on the edges. If you want to get rid of them, this tutorial can help your cause.

#7 FIFA 15 PS4 Lag Issue Fix
If you are experiencing lag on PS4 while playing FIFA 15, make sure that your NAT is not restricted. You can open it by going to your router/modem settings. Furthermore, as mentioned in #2, make sure that your concerned ports are opened.

#8 FIFA 15 Unable to access FIFA 15 Ultimate Team
Some connectivity problems are expected around the launch so if you are not able to enter FIFA 15 Ultimate Team, you need to be patient and try out later.

If there are connectivity issues, make sure that the you have your concerned ports opened as mentioned above.

#9 FIFA 15 Micro-stuttering Fix
Micro-stuttering issue has been there for a long time, and I am not saying that it’s EA’s fault as it mostly happens due to compatibility or driver issues.

First thing you want to make sure is that you have the latest drivers for your GPU. If you are using SLI/Crossfire, try disabling it as some users have reported to resolve the issue by doing so.

And if you aren’t using SLI/Crossfire, you need turn on V-sync from the launcher menu or from the control panel settings of your GPU (Nvidia Control Panel/AMD Catalyst).

#10 FIFA 15 Crashes to Desktop on EA Logo
This could very well happen due to bad driver installation. I am not staying that your drivers might not be update but your installation can be corrupted.

In order to solve it, you need to uninstall your previous drivers completely and do a fresh install rather than a simple update.

#11 FIFA 15 – Transfer Market Players Stuck at 30 Items
If you are getting the limit even after the upgrade, it’s because of a known bug and EA Sports is aware of it. So for the time being, you can wait a little while they fix the issue.
