Hi there, @GemzSt4r! Smile

The problem is that you have Origin open and running in the background. This will make your username appear and all of the DLC will be disabled. So, close Origin and start the game again. If you still can't find the DLC, then apply the Fix again. This should make the DLC reappear.

Every time you want to play the game (and don't want to use the Gallery) then Origin needs to be closed, or this will happen. Please, let us know how it goes and good luck! Very Happy

Adding to what SeoY said, I think a huge problem that most people underestimate, is this here:







The option that I marked with a red arrow here ("Automatically launch Origin when I log on to Windows") is ticked by default. That means that every time you boot up Windows, the small window prompting you to enter the Origin ID and password will pop up. And when you then try to start the game, it doesn't start up at all, or you will have other severe issues.

I'd suggest you navigate in your Origin client to the button "Origin" (top left of the window). And then to "Application  Settings". In the "General"-tab, UNMARK this option that I talked about now. 


Good luck !

That option is so that Origin doesn't open automatically when the computer starts, and keep itself open (and hidden). If it's already open then you need to close it.

Disabling Origin in game won't be enough. You have to actually close Origin completely, as I said in my previous post. Make sure that it's also closed in the Notification Area/System Tray. Smile

Good luck!
