Batman: Arkham Origins Burnley Tower Glitch & Other Common Bug Issue Fixes

The Burnley/Lacey Comm Tower glitch and the Boat Rope bug are getting on everyone's nerves. Here are some of the most common bugs and their fixes (if they have one!).

by   

If you cannot find the issue covered here or want to check out more Batman: Arkham Origins walkthroughs and common bug fixes, check out the Master List.

It is Day 1 for Batman: Arkham Origins, and we are off to a good start running headlong into a whole bunch of issues. Some of these are fixable, some of them will definitely require patching from the developers - but here are some things you can try.

Please note, most of these errors relate to problems experienced on the PC Steam version of the game.

Burnley/Lacey Communications Tower Glitch

This is the big one, and the one that everyone from the Steam forums to WB Games have been screaming about for hours. 

Once you zipline through the ventilation shaft and hack the communications tower, you are supposed to Batclaw your way back up through the ventilation shaft and climb out. Unfortunately, Batman only hangs there by his fingertips and is unable to climb out. 

There is no current fix for this. It will need to be patched by the developers. What you can do in the meantime is Fast Travel out of there, but it will not unlock any of the Enigma stuff or the fast travel for Burnley. There have also been a few reports from some people who managed to get past it "while crouching during hanging up with the Batclaw" but this has been unconfirmed so far.

EDIT: There is a tap-dance workaround for this. (Thanks nghiatito!)


Strangely, this only affects the PC version of the game.

Getting Stuck on Penguin's Boat

This is the second biggest issue people are running into, but at least for this one, some people have been finding some ways around it. At one point Batman finds himself in a section where he needs to Batclaw himself over water using a pontoon. Using the Batclaw on the ring results in the ring being pulled off and the rope falling down, locking Batman on the rope. 

Several players have suggested pressing Left Ctrl which will allow you to let go of the rope. Others have suggested restarting from checkpoint and then opening the door. 

Some have tried pressing Left Ctrl and reported that this will release the rope but not fix the issue and insist that a patch is needed. I have not been able to test this part yet.

EDIT: I have gotten through this section myself, and while I did not see a section in which the rope fell down, I did find that there was no indication what to do when I had finished pulling myself in one direction over water. Pressing Left Ctrl let go of the rope for me, leaving me free to Batclaw something else. No issues. 

Game Crashing

First, make sure that your drivers are updated, check these out in particular: 

  • VC redist 2010
  • NVIDIA PhysX drivers
  • AMD/NVIDIA GPU drivers
  • DirectX Jun 2010 or SDK
  • Dot .net Client profile 4.0
  • Dot .net Extended Profile 4.0

This should fix a few issues with game crashing (while changing resolution, upon game startup, etc.).

Remember that if you use AMD, do not turn on PhysX. NVIDIA cards are the only ones that can run this. You can only set your CPU to run it for you, which will not help your performance. Arkham Origins is optimized for NVIDIA on PC, so if you are experience stuttering, errors, and lag issues, try to keep it under MSAA x4 - this should not be a problem for higher-end AMD cards though. 

Steam Preload Error - No Play Game Button

This affected some players who preloaded their game before the game officially released. After the game was released, the preloaded game did not display the 'Play Game' button. 

To fix this:

  • Shut down Steam
  • Reboot your PC
  • Restart Steam 

Reset Video Settings 

This is if you have messed around too much with the settings and are unable to go back in through the Settings menu to fix them. You can change them all back to Default without being in-game:

  • Access your Arkham Origins folder (Steam\steamapps\common\Batman Arkham Origins\SinglePlayer\BMGame\Config)
  • Remove the BMEngine.ini file
  • Start up the game again, it should be restored to Default settings

Laggy Cutscenes

This can be caused by some issues with Direct X 11 and advanced video profiles which causes stuttering and sluggish cutscenes. 

  • Access your Arkham Origins folder (Steam\steamapps\common\Batman Arkham Origins\SinglePlayer\BMGame\Config)
  • Open BMEngine.ini in Notepad
  • Set AllowD3D11 to False

This will set it back to Direct X 10/9. There are some areas in which you will see random FPS drops throughout the city as well that may be caused by this issue.

EDIT: I saw a report on the Steam forums that they released a patch on the first day that fixed many of the framrate and stuttering issues for Direct X 11, as well as multiple mentions of it on the WB Games forums, but I haven't been able to find it in Steam updates history myself to be certain. 

Avast Virus Issue

For some reason, Batman: Arkham Origins shows up on Avast's radar as a virus. This is a false positive.

WBID/Multiplayer Issues

This one affects people in different ways. One of the first things that you are offered is the opportunity to get your hands on a new Batsuit if you create a WBID. Through personal experience, after trying to do this, I got an error through the website when I tried to verify my account. If you attempt to login, you will not be able to.

  • Restart the game. You will get a message congratulating you on creating an account and unlocking the new Batsuit.

Other issues under this umbrella include level resets in multiplayer, and WBID kicking you offline

My best advice is to avoid multiplayer for the time being, since it is the first day and the game is very buggy. You risk running into the above problems as well as losing level resets and player progress in single player.

Flickering Killer Croc/No Dialogue

I experienced this one myself. I had a little trouble in the fight with Killer Croc (that still sounds so embarrassing to admit) which resulted in my fighting him about three times. On the last time, he bugged out and started flickering. Which was fine in terms of gameplay, it made him no harder to fight, but it did make for some silly screenshots. So far, those affected appear to be using AMD, but there have only been a handful of reports.

(Killer Croc trying to eat your face off)

(what you see with flickering Killer Croc glitch)

This will need a patch fix too, but at least it is harmless and not gamebreaking.

Additionally, sound and subtitles may cut out during this fight, as well as at the very beginning of the game. There is currently no fix for these either, and require a patch. I did not encounter this issue. 

Sound Bug in GCPD Communications Tower

Sound may cut out for you in/after the GCPD Tower area. This is fixable, but not immediately.

  • Follow the game through the area and complete the scripted commands
  • You will reach a door locked by a terminal which suggests switching to Detective Mode and scanning around you
  • Exit the game and reboot

Sound and subtitles should now be functioning again.

Skip Steam Intros

And lastly... this is not exactly a bug, but it is very annoying. The opening intros for the game are very long, very annoying, and completely unskippable. 

  • Go to Steam Library
  • Right-click on Batman: Arkham > Properties
  • Add this to launch options: -nostartupmovies

I will post more bugs and fixes as I find them. Many thanks to users on the Steam forums, the WB Games forums, and friends around the internet!

For those of you feeling extremely frustrated, please remember that this is the first day - there will be bugs. They will be horrible and game-breaking, as per any new release. The Batman: Arkham series has weathered these before, and have come away from them as superstar releases stacked with awards. It's not exactly easy, but give it time. 

If you cannot find the issue covered here, I have written several articles on other common issues and their fixes:

  • Issue Fixes #2 (covers getting stuck in GCPD tunnels, Mad Hatter issues, etc.)
  • Issue Fixes #3 (covers post-Steam patch final Bane fight black screen, Steam issues, etc.)
  • Issue Fixes #4 (covers Chapel glitch, My Alibi glitch, Copperhead bugs, Deathstroke, Steam, etc.)

    I was encountering a glitch in the early part of Penguin's boat. Every time I tried to open one door in particular, the game would freeze and I'd get a "This program has stopped working" error. I revalidated my filed on Steam and it solved it.

    Also, thanks for that nostartup vids tweak!

    I found a workaround for the Burnley/Lacey Communications Tower Glitch!!!
    All you have to do is this:
    After you enter through the window you hack the the device. This is the crucial part - As soon as you finish hacking aim for the cable outside the window and grapple out, you will go through the bars if you manage to squeeze that grapple before it closes down.
    Et voila!
    You're out!
    So simple. :)

    *Potential Spoiler*

    I am on the final boss fight, and there is a quick time event in which you counter a move and then return the damage back with beat down but when I click the left mouse stick Batman won't use his beatdown move...he just stands there. The final boss then just punches me, I counter and he then again stands there during the beatdown quick time event. Any idea on how to fix this? Thanks

    SOLUTION TO SIDE MISSION ANARCHY BOMB 3 GLITCH:

    If you're stuck at 71% progress with Anarchy because you've completed the mission #3 but the game is not pointing to the courtroom (but instead keeps showing the position of the third bomb) just simply look again for the third anarkyst supporter on the roof of a building of COVENTRY DISTRICT (where you find it for the first time). The real problem is that his position is no more shown on the map and YOU HAVE TO SEARCH FOR IT ON YOUR OWN. Once you've found it, speak to him again and the mission should resart, giving you another opportunity to defuse the bomb and unlocking the courtroom for the final confrontation with anarchy.

    I've found a few glitches in the PS3 version that aren't game crashing but still annoying or funny.

    I was fighting through a Crime In Progress when a venom-using enemy glitched into a car and spun in circles, unable to escape. I couldn't complete the Crime In Progress since he was the last enemy to beat, but could not be hurt.

    Then, in the Royal Hotel, the archway leading into the water room with electrical chairs has an invisible wall that batarangs cannot go through. Not really harmful, but amusing.

    Sometimes after using Fast Travel system, the game's framerate plummets and batman lags around the level until you reset the game. Not very dangerous, but irritating.

    Lastly, at the Diamond District, towards the end of the game, there are three snipers at the Coms Tower for this area, and no matter where you are, their lasers are constantly on you. Very annoying when you're just trying to get the datapacks and finish Enigma's challenge.
  • Benjamin_9432
    Well... Discovered another issue with the game...

    There is a problem with a Bane fight...
    Probably spoilers for anyone still playing...



    During the fight with Bane where Joker is in "The Chair" ;)

    The second phase of the fight has a cut scene just before it, my game glitches at that cut scene, then goes back to the first phase of the fight, in a room with just henchman and an untransformed Bane... leaving me unable to actually defeat him... :S

    Can't restart, as it just starts from the cut scene and does it again... and again... and again...

    Going to have to wipe my save and start all over again by the looks of it.

    I have a problem that wont go away. I'm at 94% in story completion and I'm to what I assume is the final bane battle. At the end of the cutscene where bane and batman fall through the floor the screen shakes after bane pounds the ground and the cutscene ends into gameplay where batman is crouched but the entire screen turns gray and if the character walks off the only square of ground and free falls into endless gray until finally it ends and the death cut scene rolls as if I had been killed in the game. it does the same thing everytime. endless gray screen except for the batman character. please help.
  • Byron_2531
    I've got a glitch in the Mad Hatter's first proper encounter. Loading in, the camera is out in the void, nothing but weird smoke and a couple of random objects in the distance. Reloading doesn't seem to change anything and I can't really get out.
  • Travis jones
    I have a major glitch. I am in the sewer system at black gate prison. Them has gone black. I am at the part where you have to plug the pipes with steam on the glue raft. It's stuck and I can't go forward or back. The screen is dark nothing works.
  • Sigi_3306
    Hello,

    I have a problem at the mission where you have to chase Bane or Investigate the corpse at the Morgue.
    I have went a bit back to get other Enigma Datapacks and when i wanted to return, the elevator was up and i am unable to return nor to fast travel.
    I don't wanna begin the game from scratch, if it can't be fixed, i'll just delete the game. To many critical bugs that messed up all the game enjoyment
    Thx in advance if someone comes up with a sugestion/solution
  • lolzipan
    weird glitch when you reach mad hatter's room. If you throw a remote batarang and hit the mad hatter the encounter starts with the music and characters in fighting position, but you cant get anywhere. The door is locked and you cant enter the vent. :|
  • Wicked_3150
    Also, after finishing the main story and after credits I'm back in town. but when i try to confront the enigma handler and other criminals after beating them up its not working. This game is full of bugs and don't see any patch yet. Keep on waiting. Solution for the running game in window and that the game is not saving graphic option changes is: Start the game as an administrator. Every change u make its saved.
  • rudeboy john
    Having an issue with not being able to open some doors. When prompted to rapidly press A (xbox controller option on PC) the animation snags and causes the process to reset, effectively locking me out of the door. I can never press A rapidly enough due to the forced animation reset...if that makes sense. Using AMD as well; seems to be a source of a lot of these issues.
  • SS1Ivy
    I tried the tap-dancing work-around for the Burnley Communications tower... It worked and I can now fast travel to that region, except I now cannot interrogate any of Riddler's informants - in ANY of the regions. :(
  • Strigori88
    Well after about 6-7 hours of playing (PC version) i was doing a story mission walked through a door the moment i stepped in to the next room the textures disappeared below me, i started falling into nothingness,what's even better the game saved at the point i started falling ... so yeah i now have a save at about 45% completion where batman is falling into oblivion and can't do anything except glide and dive. Fun times....

    I found another solution for the Burnley district's GCR tower using cheatengine table to teleport you straight to the roof by using coordinates(X,Y,Z). I used SunBeam's table to do this just google it, and read the posts,it is in one of cheatengine's forums.
  • Zero_2602
    XBox 360 version glitch to follow. Any help would be appreciated.

    I've encountered a very frustrating glitch, myself. During a random crime-in-progress fight, the game lagged severely, and froze up entirely. The entire XBox console froze up. I attempted shutting it down by pressing the power button on the console (the controller functions were simply not working), but the power button didn't work. I was forced to unplug the XBox (after several minutes of waiting to see if something happened).

    I rebooted the system, and tried to reload the game. The game started fine. But immediately after the shiny Batman logo, the game displays a black screen. The screen doesn't disappear, and no messages appear. The title music doesn't start, either, so I know it's not just a video issue. The console does not freeze during this, but the game just won't run. I have restarted the system multiple times, I have started the game while not signed into a profile, and I have started the game while offline (I found the latter two suggestions elsewhere on the web). Nothing seems to work.

    I now cannot play my brand new game. I'm considering returning it for a refund and just not bothering with this game until it is fully patched. If there's some sort of way around this problem that allows me to continue playing the game without any damage to my system, my save file, or my disc, I might keep the game.

    Any thoughts?

    Hey guys :( I possibly have a big ass glitch, which doesn’t allow me to proceed further :/
    [SPOILER ALERT!!!]
    When I encounter Joker at the chapel (after defeating Bane TN1), there is a cinematic sequence and player has to interact …
    1) he points a gun at my face and you need to press “counter” button … works fine
    2) you throw him at the end of the chapel and need to hit him … works fine
    3) THIS IS IT … when you throw him at the window, he grabs two pieces of glass and charges at you and I simply can’t do a thing. I watched a youtube video and a “press counter” button is supposed to appear on the screen but it doesn’t. I tried it 10 times, restarted game, pc … etc. … I pressed every button but it’s no use. He kills me in 5 seconds …
    thanks for any suggestion

    I'm on ps3 and my now 2nd copy of this game goes black after watching the assassins video in the batcave, there are a few noises but no visual whatsoever!!! HELP!!!
  • Heathicus
    I haven't played long, but flickering Croc and sound cutting out happened to me. To be honest, at first, I thought this was all part of the plan, so I went along with it until a lightbulb went on when the sound cut out. I turned my settings to dx10 and flicker went away. Still doesn't keep me from playing the game. It's just a glitch. The developers will work them out within a week or so. I play on an Overclocked GTX 770 and downloaded the Steam version. I'd like to thank the Batman:AO team for making a great game with fewer issues than Obamacare.
  • Wilmer_9034
    I keep getting a glitch where I fall through the floor and it's right at the restart point so if I restart I fall again.

    Saw this Burnley Tower fix as I came across the problem yesterday. Tried the glitch for a few minutes and gave up on it. I could find the sweet spot and I would do the little hippity hop a million times and even float in the air but it wouldn't launch me.

    That's cool though. Out of the almost 20 hours I've played the game so far, I've mostly just enjoyed kicking butt out in the open world.
  • miniend
    "Everytime I get off online and get back on my entire character and level progression are reset to 1. No questions asked, regardless of how far i get or what i do it is the same everytime". I have that same problem.
  • tomemozok
    Isn't there any way to add noclip in the game?
    I have the burnley tower glitch,and just can't seem to get that tapdance off,so i will appreciate if someone could just tell me how to noclip. I have been trying to solve that little mystery for hours...
    EDIT: I managed to do the tapdance,and it WORKS! SO to anyone who has this stupid glitch,try it. But noclip will be simpler i think so.. :D

    If I have nothing to offer, that is the only thing left to do. I could suggest that people should continue running into a brick wall and losing all character/level progression every time, but that's a waste of time.

    I found another bug. With the ko moves when you have the electric gloves: at first you do a special ko with electiricity but then is like a normal ko with broken bones
  • huehue_9080
    Hey. I just found out how to fix that glitch in burnley tower. It's weird solution, because you need to use other 2 glitches(lol) but it worked for me. So first thing you need to do is to destroy the window, then stand next to the window(dont go inside) and use your Cryptographic Sequencer to unlock the computer. Then you need to use that glitch on the video(flying batman and pipe). When you are on the top of the building you just need to open the real doors and unlock the real computer. Then you can just open doors and leave ;p
  • Shawn Saint
    There is also a major bug in the Mad Hatter side quest where you get stuck in the wall when you try to climb a ladder later on in the mission. I really hope they start patching this game soon ...
  • xandercorp
    Well... I got a bug where I'm stuck on Penguin's boat forever, cause the door I was supposed to take didn't open(I saw it open in a walkthrough). It was closed for me though, and I'm stuck there with nothing to do but replay the entire bit until that point... I've played the entire series, this... is by far the worst one.
  • Coxy_9689
    I've written myself a simple batch script which I've configured in the Windows Task Scheduler to run every half hour that backs up my save game, this way if I encounter one of the game breaking bugs (I've hit two already) I'm only out by a maximum of 30 minutes.
  • Kanmax92
    There were 2 bugs that really annoyed the crap out of me, there is a bug right before the firefly boss fight where you have to grapple on to a wall after scaling the side of it. If you grapple but choose not to climb on to it, you will fall and that wall be not be target-able.

    Another one happened fighting Bane for the second time, after the cinematic my character just floated off into darkness. I watch for 5 minutes as Batman just floated on and on and on.... Either way most of these were remedied with restarting.

    That said that Burnley Tower bug is a pain in the rear end!!
  • god_9356
    There is also the problem on pinguins boat that if you decide not to get out after defeading DS and you go back trough the mine shafts to the theater that you are stuck forever.
    Cause the door to the boiler room and theater is closed.
    And trough the ventilation shafts is a one way street.

    My game had been glitching in really terrible ways which makes me question the true quality of the work. Two times now I've been sneaking behind guys and it's obvious nobody can see me, but it won't let me do a silent takedown. I just tried in the part where you have to get into the GCPD building's morgue, and there was a sniper in the middle of a bunch of guys with guns, and I tried to take the sniper out, but it wouldn't let me. I had to beat him up and run away.

    How odd. With sneaking I haven't had a problem sneaking... in fact, I've been doing so laughably well that I can be pretty much in front of someone and directly in their line of sight, but they don't see much until I whip around behind them and suffocate them.
  • Jake_2617
    Yeah, so far it's only been with those two snipers though. But also, when I fought Bane the second time part of the battle ending involved him doing an inescapable attack that was part of the story... thing is, it did damage to me and killed me at the same time, and then as he taunted me in the loading screen, and then even as I started the battle over it played the sounds of the cutscene as though I hadn't died. I'm not sure what they were thinking when they made some of this stuff :\ I'm also annoyed by the lack of a map marker.

    That's true. Although I really like how the world-map markers look. Subtle, but noticeable, like spotlights.

    I'm in this situation too, if someone finds a solution, please post ! Or maybe we can work it around. Where is the save game file located ? Maybe we can restore a previous version... (kinda like for the TDU2 corrupted savefile bug...)

    Nevermind, found the solution: ---> Found the solution !!! ---> http://www.gamefaqs.com/boards/710576-batman-arkham-origins/67635202

    Good article, it's really helpfull. But i didn't found the fix, just point it to the one who found the solution. And btw, i don't think this is really a glitch, you just need to go another direction to get out of there... :))

    I have a problem, but it's on my console version. Matchmaking in AO Online doesn't work, I just get put into my own lobbies that nobody joins. I live in New Zealand, so could the problem just be that I don't live in America?

    There have definitely been a lot of multiplayer issues, and even though I know a lot of that is on the PC end of things, multiplayer needs your WBID regardless of PC/console if I recall correctly, and things have been a little problematic on that end. :/ I can ask around though!
  • Jordy2211221
    I now know the problem. The matchmaking service isn't the best, so all I needed to do was keep searching over and over again till I got a lobby with at least 4 other people. Thanks for responding though! :)

    Only problems I've found so far are issues with Batman climbing up from ledges, similar to the Burnley Tower, but a quick shimmy to the left or the right normally fixes it... Now that that works when trying to climb into a grate, though...

    I'm running...
    Radeon HD 7970 VAPOR-R 3GB
    i7 4770k
    16GB RAM

    I've had a couple of framerate stutters, but nothing I would consider out of the ordinary...

    Yeah, I've done that a few times. He does some pretty hilarious things movement-wise but I guess that's kinda expected with this kind of movement/combat system.

    I've had a few framerate drops while I've just been exiting out of a cutscene/flying around the city, but the new patch seems to have taken care of that.
  • Benjamin_9432
    A patch? excellent.
    The framarate drops are more disheartening than actually annoying... Just makes me feel like I need to spend MOAR money on this machine... It's sapped enough from my wallet as it is! :P

    So far, it is a *rumored* patch. I have found official references to one, but I've only seen mentions for PS3. :/ Unofficial mentions have been for PC/Steam versions, but I haven't been able to confirm these for myself. Regardless, framerate drops for me have almost completely disappeared.

    And tell me about it. My baby is getting along in years, but she's behaved well for most new releases... until the framerate drops on this one.
  • Benjamin_9432
    Gah, everything is 'rumoured' these days... I didn't even find out about the delay of the physical copy until the day before it was due to ship, as most stuff was dismissed as rumours...

    My setup is 'almost' brand new... Just upgraded motherboard and CPU in advance of uni ^_^
  • Stephanie Tang

    I've found a few trustworthy sources that say there is one... but I haven't been able to confirm it myself through Steam update logs. (e.g. http://www.geforce.com/whats-new/articles/batman-arkham-city-patch-improves-directx-11-performance) I'm not exactly one to trawl through rumors myself, too much to sift through.

    Very nice, I'm considering switching off of AMD but that will take a while in the actual implementation. I'm not amazing at choosing hardware, and it's pricey learning. :P
  • Benjamin_9432
    "Page not found" haha, I love it when that happens!

    For graphics, I'm a bit of an AMD whore... Just get a better and more affordable result for the sort of thing I'm after.
    My machine is used for Computer Animation and Game Development, aswell as being my main gaming machine, too...

    There also appears to be a problem with the main questline becoming halted after you do the anarky questline. It is mentioned in this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cPoWRGKYchs&feature=c4-overview&list=UUns4T9U8VSIRovKa1a_r7rA and in the comments of this video and I am currently experiencing it myself. Very frustrating, unsure what i'm supposed to DO.


    EDIT:

    Turns out the actual event triggers for the Lacey tower mission is bugged which has been widely reported. If you head towards Lacey towers on the map (watch a walkthrough to get there, search lacey towers in youtube) you take out the cops on top of that building and the quest seems to progress as normal despite no marker.

    Damn. :( I know, it sucks. Until they release a patch though, your best bet is still to fast travel out of there and check out some of the other stuff you can find in the game.

    Omg you changed your name, I was so confused for a moment and thought I'd just credited someone else. D:

    I'm having a problem while fast traveling to the batcave. I see the cut scene where batman enters the batwing and the loading screen appears, it just keeps the loading screen up. I've left it for about 20 minutes, no change.

    Have you tried alt-tabbing? Not a full-proof fix, I grant you, but some people (on both Steam and Origin) have had some luck alt-tabbing out of the game for a few seconds, then alt-tabbing back in.
  • Clauricaune
    The "flickering" Croc glitch also happened to me, and I'm running a GTX 770. Additionaly, the sound cut off during the fight. The game previously crashed while I was fighting him. I have fully updated drivers. No clue what that was about.

    Thanks for the input! I'm glad you were able to get through it though, even if I can't offer you any quick fix for it just yet.
