What's new in this version:

Origin 10.5.16.49299
- The download manager needed some serious attention this week: the progress bar wasn't displaying properly for games with progressive installation, some of the controls weren't clearly labeled and if you made your Origin client window very small the download manager would shove the profile tile on top of the notifications tile. The bar's been tweaked, we used our label maker to take care of the buttons and gave the download manager a stern talking-to about respecting others' personal space
- You can now resize Origin chat windows when they're popped out, instead of having to accept whatever default size they feel like being that day
- Have your text-to-speech messages sounded alittlelikethisrecently? It's hard to hear anything when people are talking too fast or interrupting each other, so we've slowed things down a bit. Now messages should sound more like a conversation and less like an auction
- Now the Origin installation window shows off more recent games in its image loop, because we love our children and want to brag about them


Origin 10.5.15.44004
- If you tried to purchase BioWare DLC recently you weren't seeing double - our system was duplicating purchases. The glitch has been fixed, but if you believe you were affected please visit help.ea.com and click "Contact Us" to speak to one of our advisors
- Origin will now run in the background on system start-up - that means it can sign you in, install updates and more without throwing a sign-in or update window in your face
- Origin no longer turns game art in your library into gray blocks when you load a game (because it thought you weren't looking)
- After broadcasting on Twitch you might want to grab a snack or take out the trash before someone reminds you *again*. In the past, when you tried to change your status from "Online" to "Away" Origin wouldn't let you. We've addressed its separation anxiety, so feel free to go do what you need to do. And can you grab us a soda while you're up?
- Origin is supposed to sign you into the Origin forums automatically when you visit from the client, but for a while, it was making you sign in manually out of paranoia and/or laziness. Whichever it was, we fixed it
- When you earn a bunch of achievements you probably want to know it. Unfortunately, our notification system gave up after telling you about just one. We hung a few motivational posters around the office, gave the system a good old-fashioned pep talk and it's now brimming with team spirit. It can't wait to tell you all about every last one of your latest achievements
- You might've noticed that scrolling on Origin with your Mac trackpad has…been…a…little…slow. Well, we noticed too and gave the scrollbars an espresso or two. They're moving a whole lot faster now
- The old "one to open, one to keep in the box" rule doesn't really apply to digital games, so we figure when you buy the same game twice it's a mistake. Now Origin knows that too, so it stops you if you accidentally try to buy a lower edition of a game you already own
- What do Ouija boards, the Voyager space probes and our game invite system have in common? All three were attempting to reach the unknown. We can't be sure about ghosts, or aliens, but we do know that offline players absolutely can't join your game, no matter how many times you invite them. Now the system knows it too


Origin 10.5.14.38647
- We geared up and went full exterminator on bugs of all sorts - bugs that rearranged pages, broke buttons, twisted up text or just wouldn't let you do what you wanted to do. We squished them all with extreme prejudice


Origin 10.5.12.32066
- Now you can see if your friends are online or not even if their real name appears on your friends list, because apparently, Origin couldn't handle that level of intimacy for a while
- The scroll bar on download queues seemed to get stuck going in only one direction. We added the coding equivalent of a little WD-40 and now it's back to moving up and down smoothly
- If you've poked, prodded, tapped and jabbed at the "Add to Order" button on our bundles page to no avail, we apologize. Now if you try to add a bundle to your order from your phone or touchscreen device, a single, gentle touch should suffice
- Now you can shut your PC down normally even when Origin is on the sign-in page without bringing the whole process to a screeching halt
- The download option went AWOL in some users' game libraries. We sent out the MPs, gave it an official reprimand and now it's back on duty
- Searching for a game with a number in its title briefly deleted the "View All in your Game Library" option. Now it's fixed and you can marathon every single Ultima game with ease


Origin 10.5.11.27978
- Has your Mac been running a little rough on Origin lately? We've made it easier for you to share diagnostic information with our advisors so they can pop the hood, take a look and get you back to your games faster! Just click Help and select the Origin Error Reporter to get started
- Some Origin Access members have reported missing extra content info in their game libraries. Fortunately, the descriptions and game images have been found safe and sound and returned to their rightful owners
- As long as you didn't own a particular game (say, Extreme Space Ping Pong: Revelations), you could buy the same DLC pack for that game (say, ESPPR DLC Hat Pack) over and over again ad infinitum. We figured that was not, in fact, a thing you wanted to do, so now you can only buy that pack for yourself once
- It's the thought that counts, but we figure you still want to actually get your Origin gifts, so we fixed the button that lets you download them
- Origin on Mac used to get groggy and require a restart if your system went to sleep for more than 15 minutes. We gave it a few shots of espresso to wake it up
- Origin used to pretend that everything was under control when it got a cloud sync error and wouldn't tell you about the problem. It's more open and communicative now
- Triangles are awesome, one of our all-time favorite shapes. But they're not so great when they block half your window. Especially when you're trying to play some of the SteamWorld games. We've…ironed this issue out
- Need for Speed Payback fans, The House hasn't been messing with your cloud saves. That was on us, sorry. Now you should be able to get back to your cartel-fighting, street racing and car chases without any more cloud save problems
- Origin now actually accepts MyCard like it was supposed to all along, instead of replying to MyCard purchases with a cryptic error
- Our game invites wouldn't take "Yes" for an answer and stuck around way longer than they should have. We told them you don't have to go home but you can't stay here
- If you were trying to buy some Need for Speed Payback Speed Points and you got nothing but red lights you'll be happy to hear the fast lane is now re-opened. Hit the gas and grab all the Speed Points you want
- You used to be able to set your Origin in-game menu shortcut to just Shift...and then open and close the menu over and over again by typing normally. Whoops. Unplugged that one
- Steamworld Dig is a good-looking game, and now your fans can see that for themselves because Origin doesn't display a black screen when you try to stream it anymore
- Some of our extra content has not only been budging to the front of the download queue, they're also making it tough to then download the base game. We took care of that because it's all about that base, 'bout that base, 'bout that base game
- You didn't really need to see that download start, did you? That's what Origin thought, so it would bring you back to the top of the page any time you clicked 'Download' on a tile in your game library. Now it lets you stick around


Origin 10.5.10.24870
- Change log not available for this version


Origin 10.5.8.17910
- If you right-click on the Origin icon in the systems tray, you expect it to do something even if you’re offline, right? Well, it didn’t use to but now it does. That’s fixed and will no longer disappoint your clicking expectations
- When the language was set to Japanese, the Origin installer would get a case of the hiccups and display Chinese characters instead of Japanese. We snuck up behind it and scared it. Hiccups cured
- The center of the screen is no place for the friends list, so we had the Origin In-Game overlay slide it over to the right, to the right
- There was an issue where the Great Game Guarantee refund period would start once you installed a game, rather than the first time you play it. No more false starts here
- Sims thrive in communities. So it helps that some Sims product pages are no longer missing the community creation section
- We explained to the search bar that games don’t just pop into existence when pre-orders start, so now you’ll find games that aren't on sale yet if you go searching
- We fixed the screenshot viewer so it disappears when it should instead of sticking around and being an attention hog
- You know how we sometimes have big, full-page announcements on Origin? They somehow made games from the Store disappear. Those games have returned with tales of strange, faraway servers
- The Invite button in the Invite Friends window was shy and use to hide off screen so nobody could socialize; we’ve moved it so it isn’t such a party-pooper anymore
- We stopped text from overlapping throughout Origin because you're not always in the mood for word puzzles
- We convinced the game rating hover that it isn't supposed to block the "Add to wishlist" and "Buy for myself" menu options. Yes, it's fine, we see you
- The Origin client used to play a lame prank where it would say you weren’t online even if you were. We told it to get better material
- We're working on vanquishing error 9:0 so Origin doesn’t go to pieces when it has to complete an installation or an update


Origin 10.5.8.11002
- If you right-click on the Origin icon in the systems tray, you expect it to do something even if you’re offline, right? Well, it didn’t use to but now it does. That’s fixed and will no longer disappoint your clicking expectations
- When the language was set to Japanese, the Origin installer would get a case of the hiccups and display Chinese characters instead of Japanese. We snuck up behind it and scared it. Hiccups cured
- The center of the screen is no place for the friends list, so we had the Origin In-Game overlay slide it over to the right, to the right
- There was an issue where the Great Game Guarantee refund period would start once you installed a game, rather than the first time you play it. No more false starts here
- Sims thrive in communities. So it helps that some Sims product pages are no longer missing the community creation section


Origin 10.5.6.6235
- We squashed bugs, fixed crashes, and made Origin that much better
