Issues Caused by Easy Anti-Cheat
Sometimes Easy Anti-Cheat fails to install itself properly, which may lead to two most common issues:
- the game won't launch at all
- the player may be randomly kicked from game matches.
EAC installation fixes
To fix Easy Anti-Cheat installation, in the vast majority of cases you just need to verify game files integrity in Steam:
- Right click on Shatterline in your Steam Library and choose "Properties...".
- Click on "Local Files" in the left-side menu.
- And click on "Verify integrity of game files...".
Step 2, in case the files integrity verification doesn't help
- Press on Windows Key + R on the keyboard, type services.msc, and hit Ctrl + Shift + Enter.
- Among the listed services, find Easy Anti-Cheat and double click on it.
- If the Startup type for the service is "Disabled," change it to "Manual" and hit Apply.
- Navigate to C:\Program Files (x86)\EasyAntiCheat_EOS and delete the EasyAntiCheat_EOS.sys file.
- Relaunch Shatterline to generate a new EasyAntiCheat_EOS.sys file.
EAC manual installation
If earlier steps fail to do the trick, manual Easy Anti-Cheat installation should help.
- Navigate to the game folder on your computer (the usual path is C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Shatterline).
- Locate the installscript.vdf file there and open it with Notepad or any other text editor.
- Under the heading “eos_anticheat_install” you will see two lines: process 1 and command 1. Command 1 will have the text “install a_string_of_numbers_and_- letters”. You need to copy this text in the quotation marks, but without the actual quotation marks.
- Navigate to the EasyAntiCheat folder in the game folder you are already in.
- You need to launch the EasyAntiCheat_EOS_Setup.exe file with the parameters you’ve just copied. Run CMD and execute the file. The command will look something like that: C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Shatterline\EasyAntiCheat\ EasyAntiCheat_EOS_Setup install a_string_of_numbers_and_- letters.
- Hit Enter and the anti-cheat will be installed.
You should be able to launch the game now.
