Can't Launch Rust - Nothing Happens After EAC Loads
3 replies, posted
Hey everyone, I'm completely stumped. I played Rust just fine last week, but when I start Rust from Steam, this happens:
1) The Rust logo pops up, Easy Anti-Cheat starts to load
2) The blue loading bar fills, the logo closes
3) My Steam name goes green for a few seconds (like I'm in a game), then it goes blue. Nothing.
There's many posts over the past couple years with the same problem. So far I've tried:
Unplugging my headphone/disabling sound in Windows (weird, but it works for some apparently)
Verifying Rust game files in Steam
Running in windowed mode (via launch options)
Opening Rust.exe from files, not Steam (nothing happens)
Running everything I can think of as administrator
Running in different compatibility modes (Win 8, Win 7)
The only way Rust will run is if I force OpenGL via the launch options (though performance is terrible). Rolling back GPU drivers didn't work.
The only thing I haven't tried in reinstalling Windows, which I've heard is a last resort (I'd rather not).
I'm normally pretty good at googling computer problems and fixing them, but this is on another level.
My specs: i7-3770k, AMD 7970, 16 GB of ram, SSD (tried on HDD too), Windows 10 64-bit
Moved to help subforum.
Hopefully someone from the community or staff will be able to help you with this.
Seems strange. you are best asking the devs Submit a request – Facepunch Studios
UPDATE: I contacted Facepunch, one of their suggestions was, "We've also been recently made aware of a Citrix incompatibility with Unity. If you have any sort of Citrix communication software installed try uninstalling it."
This was it. I had to install Citrix for a class, I uninstalled it, Rust is working now.
