EA DICE launched its latest update for 2013’s “Battlefield 4” on Tuesday. While some users are finally able to play the title without any annoying bugs, others are saying the update exacerbated the game’s glitches. The update was for the Xbox One and PC.

“We are aware that some of you have been experiencing some crashing since the patch this morning,” EA posted on its forum Tuesday, along with instructions on how to remedy the error on the PC. EA also encouraged users to reach out to their Twitter support. No tips for fixing glitches on the Xbox One were offered by the developer as of this time.

1. Go into your game directory (dir:Program files(x86)Origin GamesBattlefield 4)

2. If you have a “user.cfg” file, open it in notepad.

3. Delete the command line “UI.DrawEnable 1”

4. Save the file

5. Start the game

Yesterday, the forum announced the update would fix the following errors.
