THE BUZZ: EA released a patch for FIFA 12 yesterday that may have caused more problems than it actually fixed, crashing players games at random times.

“Some users have reported game crashes since installing the 10th November patch on PS3 and Xbox 360,” said an EA Community Manager. “We believe this is caused by mismatched data in Creation Centre content downloaded before installing the patch. To solve this issue, delete this content from your system and then re-download it.”

Here’s a workaround for the issue:

PS3

In-game UGC File Deletion

[Main Menu] -> [My Fifa 12] -> [ FIFA12 Profile] -> [SAVE/LOAD/DELETE]

– Press the [Cross] button and choose delete

– Choose your UGC file

– Delete the file

– Reboot the game.

PS3 XMB method to delete UGC File

– Proceed to the PS3 XMB

– Use the Left Analog stick to move left/right and choose the controller icon to the far right

– Scroll down to Save Data Utility (PS3)

– Choose your file “FIFA 12 – UGC Data 1 Contains UGC file”

– Press the [Triangle] button and then choose Delete

Xbox 360

In-game UGC File deletion

[Main Menu] -> [My Fifa 12] -> [ FIFA12 Profile] -> [SAVE/LOAD/DELETE]

– Press the [A] button and choose delete

– Choose your UGC file

– Delete the file

– Reboot the game.

Dashboard Method to delete UGC File

– Press the Xbox360 Guide button

– Press the [Y] button to proceed to the Xbox Dashboard

– [My Xbox] -> System Settings -> [Memory] -> [Hard Drive/MU] -> [Games] -> FIFA 12

– Delete UGC file

PC

In-Game

– [Main Menu] -> [My Fifa 12] -> [ FIFA12 Profile] -> [SAVE/LOAD/DELETE]

– Choose the UGC file

– Delete the file

– Reboot the game.

File Explorer

– Open the “My Documents” -> “FIFA 12” folder in File Explorer

– You can manually delete the savefiles from that folder

EGM’s TAKE: We love patches that create new, completely unforeseen issues. Let’s hope EA clears this one up quickly.
