I've spent the last couple of days engrossed in Battlefield 3. However I also took part in the Alpha and the Beta testing, so in my Origin account, I have multiple entries for BF3 (one for alpha, one for beta, one for retail).

Obviously, I can't play the old 2 anymore, so does anyone know of a way to remove these from the Origin game list? There doesn't seem to be an obvious way of doing so.

I'm not familiar with a way to actually remove the game from Origin, but there is a way to hide the game from actually appearing in Origin. Open the file

C:\ProgramData\Origin\InstalledGames.xml

The Battlefield Beta has an ID of 71171. Find that line and change

hidden="0" to hidden="1"

I'm not quite sure what the ID for the alpha is, but you could just follow a similar process to remove that one as well.

This no longer works. Any other ideas? –  user20104 Feb 17 '12 at 20:01
    
@Tr0n, you could try grouping the unwanted entries and then collapse the group, or at least you can do so in Steam. Don't know about Origin. –  kotekzot Feb 17 '12 at 20:05

You need to contact EA support. They will disable whichever games you want.
