    So after installing OS X El Capitan from beta 1, I haven't been able to login to Origin, EA's Game client. It just says that "Origin online is currently unavailable" Anyone else have this issue, and has anyone been able to resolve it? I've tried everything!!!

    Been having this issue since Beta 1 as well. I had an Origin update a few days ago, but it didn't change anything. Updated to Beta 5 and the issue remains.

    Yep! I just hope that it'll work soon because I cant even actually play any games since I had to do a clean install....

    Apparently EA is aware of the issue and says a fix is coming, but god knows when that is, EA's customer service is awful.

    See, I never got a reply from them so that just shows how good their customer service is xD

    It worked for me too. The trick was making sure I installed the beta 7 version of Xcode (at first I was trying to do it with Xcode 6 — no go.

    Even after I installed the Xcode beta, I still couldn't get openssl to install. Turned out I had to get the Xcode command line developer tools installed (it wasn't by default). I did that with the terminal command xcode-select --install.

    Yeah, it was a little bit of a PITA, but I finally could run the games I shelled out good money for.

    The instructions use Homebrew to build OpenSSL, but you can also use MacPorts.

    Guys, bad news - now with the official El Capitan, I have the same issue, but the fix listed above did nothing. Instead what happens is it acts like it can download a game, but the game download never completes - in fact, never gets past more than a percent or two.
