Update There has been an update pushed through via steam, this update does appear to have resolved the issue. Please Log-in to Steam and download.
I’ve run into a bit of an issue after the recent update on 1/21/16. I was playing fine all day, then after the update I’ve been unable to play more than 2-5 minutes. I am able to launch the game fine, I’ll play for a couple minutes and then I will be disconnected receiving the following error message:
Disconnected EAC: EAC Disconnected
I assume this is related to the Easy Anti Cheat software, I have not made any changes to my game files and can assure you I have not made any attempt to cheat/hack/exploit in any way. As i’ve said, I was playing for a couple hours straight before this happened no changes made other than the pushed update. This error occurs on any server I attempt to connect to official and community alike. Below are the specs for my Mac to further assist in getting the issue resolved.
Processor 2 x 2.26 GHz Quad-Core Intel Xeon
Memory 15 GB 1066 MHz DDR3 ECC
Graphics NVIDIA GeForce GT 120 512 MB
Software OS X 10.9.5 (13F1507)
I understand my graphics card is a little under powered however with the settings turned low it’s been working fine, I have already ordered a better one and I’m just waiting for it to arrive. This does not appear to be graphics related as the game will run just fine for 2-5 minutes without lag. The launcher itself works just fine, I simply get disconnected from what appears to be the anti-cheat software after about 2-5 minutes of normal gameplay regardless of activity or movement.
Troubleshooting Steps Attempted
- Tried multiple servers.
- Closed and re-opened Rust
- Closed and re-opened Steam
- Launch directly from steam library
- Verified Integrity of Game Cache
- Uninstalled/Reinstalled Local Files
- Ensured my computer was the only one accessing my steam account.
Any assistance you could offer would be greatly appreciated please and thank you.
