Is your Planetside 2 Stuck at 96% or 94, 98, 24, or any other number when loading? It can be pretty frustrating. This is a pretty common problem after patches but luckily there is an easy solution!
Validating your game files is the #1 way to fix this problem. Something messed up while patching and by validating, the station launchpad will download a fresh and good copy of that file.
To do this, simply open the Planetside 2 Station Launchpad and click the Advanced Tools button. It looks like a teal hexagon at the bottom left-hand corner of the launchpad that has a wrench inside of it. Once you click that button, simply click Validate Game Assets. That will start the validation process immediately and depending on the speed of your computer (CPU, RAM, hard drive and internet connection) it may take upwards of 15 minutes. Once it is done, you will have a copy of Planetside 2 that is 100% validated against the patch servers for Planetside 2 and your loading problem should go away.
Other solutions to the problem include, in this order after completing game asset validation:
1. Restart your computer.
2. Uninstall Planetside 2, delete the install directory if it is left over after the uninstall process. Restart your computer. Download a new copy of the game installer. And reinstall the game. This obviously can take a while depending once again on the speed of your computer (CPU, RAM, Hard Drive and internet speed).
