Everything you need to know about setting up Origin In-Game — including using it with the September 2018 Mojave OS update.
Enable Origin In-Game and get the most out of your gaming experience:
Here’s where you can also change any other Origin In-Game settings you’d like.
If you're in the middle of a game, hold the Shift key and press F1 to access Origin In-Game. You can change the keyboard shortcut from Shift+F1 to something else in the Origin In-Game settings.
Choose the feature you want by pressing its icon at the bottom of the screen.
If you're playing a game that's game pad/keyboard only, you'll still need to use your mouse to navigate Origin In-Game.
You sure can! Origin can track and display your FPS to keep you updated on how well your system is performing.
Want to turn it on?
You can do this in one of two ways:
Get an invite from your friend while you’re playing another game? Accept or decline by pressing Y or N. We’ll give you ten seconds to change your mind before your current game will close and the new game will open.
This is available for most games in Origin.
The Mojave OS update for Mac has some new and enhanced security features, including System Integrity Protection (SIP). SIP effects third party-apps, protecting them from certain forms of exploits and tampering (like code injections).
Unfortunately, because of SIP, Origin In-Game currently won’t work if you upgrade to Mojave OS. For now, you can turn off SIP to use Origin In-Game on Mac.
Follow these steps to disable SIP:
If you need to re-enable SIP, follow these steps again, but type csrutil enable in the terminal.
We’ll update this article when there’s a more permanent fix.

After you sign in, you can adjust your volume levels, broadcast resolution, framerate, or picture quality in Advanced Settings.
When you start streaming, a bar will appear at the top of the Origin In-Game screen to let you know that you're live. It also shows how many viewers are currently watching.
