EA have updated their notsteam Origin client to version 9.0. Most of the changes are cosmetic – like adding new title bars to windows and changing the mark as favourite button to a star icon (it’s hold on to your seat innovation I know) – however the new version does apparently fix issues gamers have been having with the FIFA 12 invite system.

  • Updated the look and feel of the My Games tab.
  • Updated game tiles with high resolution box art.
  • Added a slider allowing users to resize game tiles.
  • Moved the Download, Install and Play buttons into game-specific mouseover windows.
  • Changed the Mark as Favorite button to a star icon.
  • Added new sorting options to the My Games tab.
  • Added a refresh button to the My Games tab.
  • Moved the Friends List into a standalone window.
  • Added ability to hide the Friends List.
  • Added button to the navigation bar that shows the Friends List if it’s hidden.
  • Added new navigation options to the Origin system tray menu.
  • Configured Order History page to display both web and client purchases.
  • Added new title bars to a number of windows.
  • Improved overall performance of the Origin client.
  • Fixed an issue that was keeping some users from being able to patch properly.
  • Fixed an issue that was blocking FIFA 12 invites from being sent for some users.
