Fifa 13 errors fix!

Since many people are encountering the problem of fifa 13 rldea.dll missing, game not starting and crashing, I decided to write some tips which I have managed to gather. So below are some information, which might help you:

-If you are facing the problem of the rldea.dll error missing, then check out this post here.

In the case where you PC name (or your Windows username) contains at least one of the special characters, it will cause FIFA 13 to crash. I suggest you to rename your PC name or your Windows user name by following the two solutions provided below:

Your PC name Contains special characters:

If your PC name contains special characters, please rename your PC name. To do so, click on the Start button and follow the below instructions:
Click on the “Control Panel” and in the “System and Security” section, select “System”.
Under “Computer Name, domain and workgroup settings” click on the “Change Settings” button.
On the “Computer name” tab, click on the “Change” button.
Then, change the computer name and reboot your computer to ensure the changes take effect.

Your Windows username contains special characters:

Please verify if your FIFA 13 config. files are located in a path similar to: C:\Users\Usernàmé\Documents\FIFA 13 (with special characters). If this is the case, please follow the instructions below carefully. As this process is a bit more complicated, if your Windows username contains special characters, you will not need to rename it but simply add a new username.
Click on the Start button.
Click on the “Control Panel” and in the “User Accounts and Family Safety” section, select “User Accounts”.
Click on “Manage User Accounts”.
Click on “Add” and enter a new user name (no special characters), and click on “Next” to finish.
Make the user an Administrator by clicking on the “Administrator” option and click on “Finish”.
(Please be aware that if you are on a network,  you may need to create a local user first from the “Advanced” tab.)
Once you tried the above solution , please try to login with this new Windows user account. Once logged in, launch Origin, then launch FIFA 13 if both options are available to you. If you do not have the Origin icon on your desktop, please reinstall the clients on this new Windows session.


Check that your Graphics card has the most recent drivers installed. For instructions on how to update your Graphics card drivers please see here.
You should make sure that you have the latest version of DirectX installed on your system.
You should check that you have the latest Service Pack and Windows Updates installed for your operating system including the optional updates such as .NET Framework and Visual C++ features.
If after the most recent FIFA 13 game update you're still experiencing crashes or freezes, use the Repair Install function in Origin.

In your games library, right click on FIFA 13 and choose Check for Update. Update the game.
If that doesn't fix it, return to the Games Library, right click on FIFA 13 and choose Repair Install.
These last two steps should prevent the game from further crashing.

If the above does not work for you or if you're using a cracked version, then read on:

-If the game is not starting/opening, try the following tips one by one and check out if they help you :
  1. There is a possibility that the computer might have switched the ownership and hence the issue, to resolve this go to the folder where fifa is installed, and right click on the folder. Then go to the security tab, click on advance and then click change at the top. Upon clicking it, I typed in my name in the field below and hit ok and try launching the game.
  2. Try starting the game as admin.
  3. Download these files from here  and paste them onto your \FIFA 13\Game\Core folder. If it still doesn't help install the .net framework 4.0 from here
  4. I'm very sure the above two points would have solved your problem, if not then update the DirectX to the latest compatible version and also the download and install the latest .net framework.
  5. Try updating your video/graphics card drivers.
  6. Try re-installing the game and try the first two steps again.
-If the game is crashing, once it has launched, and crashes before the match starts or in the menu:
  1. If the game crashes before the match, then before clicking on Play Match, press Windows button and go to desktop, refresh the pc 2-3 times and switch back to the game and play the match, this works like a charm I guarantee you.
  2. If it crashes in the menu, note down the place where it crashes and just before that  press Windows button and go to desktop, refresh the pc 2-3 times and switch back to the game. Once you've doe this the game continues to work, but it might crash before you start the game, to solve that refresh the pc again and get back to playing the match.
These are some tips that I've gathered. Hope these helps and if it did, you can return the favor by following me on G+.
