Some users have reported game crashes since installing the most recent patch in FIFA 12. We believe that part of the problem is caused by mismatched data in Creation Centre content (User Generated Content or “UGC”) downloaded before installing the patch. While we continue to investigate the issue, a workaround to this issue is to delete this content from your system and then re-download it.

We would like to thank the FIFA 12 community for bringing this workaround to our attention. Here are the steps to perform the workaround.:

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

XBox 360. Downloaded Patch and Addon. Game freezes after I connect to the Ea Servers (basically after the loading screen before the arena)

Xbox 360 - Same as above, it says connecting to servers, goes through the hospitality settings then freezes right before the arena.

To clarify, is this 100% of the time?

Yes, every time, I have to take the plug out of my 360 to get it to restart when this happens, I have cleared my cache, redownloaded the expansion, but still get the same issue!

Mine was freezing every time too.
However when it gives you the 'Custom Formation' option, try clicking no. Seemed to work for me. Not sure if it was a lucky one off, but I'm not turning my FIFA off and risking it...
