Origin Error – 1021115

aka {“Error”:”invalid_request” , “error_description” “pc machine id is missing” code : 1021115} – thrown when trying to link a game with Origin from Steam or Epic.

Thanks to Sparta_1ah1 on the EA and Origin forums his suggestion worked after nearly 2 weeks of back and forth trying to figure this out.

The fix?

To quote Sparta directly:

I solved this issue by changing my nickname which i was using some non English letters

what I did is use normal English letters in my steam account nickname and boom problem solved.

In my case – I had symbols in my Steam display name like | and #. Removed these, and off we go.

Hopefully this reaches a few of you who have been banging your head trying to get an answer from EA, Steam or Epic
