- Burnout Paradise may crash on start-up if you have screen recording software running, such as Xsplit. This occurs because the game sees the software as a webcam.
- The easiest way to rectify this issue is: close the screen recording software, load Burnout Paradise, Alt + Tab out, then run the screen recording software. If this is not effective, you may need to uninstall the screen recording software entirely.
Issues with CL Eye Driver
- Users with the CL Eye Driver installed (to enable support for the PlayStation Eye Camera as a webcam) will encounter crashes when loading Burnout Paradise.
- Currently, the only solution is to uninstall the CL Eye Driver entirely. You may encounter further problems even after doing so; it is most likely not your fault. This game is a low-quality PC port, you may have to experiment with trial and error by closing some Windows Services in the Task Manager, then running Burnout Paradise.
Nvidia graphics issues
- Users with Nvidia graphics may have Nvidia’s Streamer Service installed (used for streaming to Shield).
- You may have to end nvstreamsvc.exe via the Task Manager for the game to load.
Windows 7 solution
- Windows 7 users have reported crashing when attempting to run the game.
- To rectify this, set the game to run in Windows XP SP3 compatibility mode, or Windows Vista SP2 mode. It may also help to reduce or disable Anti-Aliasing in the game’s launcher.
- As a last resort, the game may be fixable by entering -multithread into the launch options.
1. Game crashing while playing
First off, thank you to pestilencemage, sblbeech, zero32483 and m1k3ol, who discovered that the majority of the crashes appear to be related to a specific song: #25 “Never Heard Of It – Finger On The Trigger”.
Workaround: If Burnout Paradise on PC has been crashing early after starting your game and getting into your first car, stay behind the wheel by:
- Start a game in Party Mode, choosing 2-players, and press F1 to open your game menu
- Open Audio Option, select EA Trax, and find Song #25, “Never Heard of It — Finger on the Trigger.”
- Change this song to Don’t Play.
- Go back, save, and return to your game.
2. Crash on Start Up (splash screen)
You can try these two workarounds, if you are experiencing these
- Right click the BurnoutParadise.exe file in the games installation directory, select properties and open the compatibility tab. Select the Windows XP Service Pack 3 Compatibility Mode and click apply. (Thanks bigjeffy)
- Turn off any Overlays, either Origin-In-Game or third party ones such as (Xsplit, MSI-OnScreen, etc.) as well as any webcams. (Thanks grachplaytv6 and again sbleech)
3. Miscellaneous crashes
If you are still crashing and playing on a multicore CPU do the following: (Thanks iamlepermessiah)
- Right click Burnout Paradise in the Origin Client. Select Game Properties… And then put the following in the Command Line Arguments field: -multithread
- If that still does not help, please post your latest Dxdiag report:https://help.ea.com/article/how-to-gather-dxdiag-information
