Constant EAC CTD.......

Well, it’s been 3 days now of not being able to log into the Experimental Rust, although I was playing prior to that with NO problems. NOTHING has been changed on my end. Can play Legacy with no problem. Am running Win 7 with 16 GIGS of Ram. Intel i7-4820K CPU @ 3.0GHz, NVidia GeForce GTX 770. Have tried running from Steam, running from shortcut, running from directory with ALL “RUN AS ADMIN” and the game loads up, starts to load about 20-30 servers than CTD. I rented a server 3 days ago but can’t get into it to see if it’s even running. Does ANYONE have any help. Delete and re-install has happened FOUR times now so that’s not the issue. Here’s the EAC error text. …

Is this the right place to post to get help?

Try ending PnkBstrA.exe in the task manager. See if that helps.

Thank you for the reply. I turned it off but still crashed after about 10 seconds into the server loading screen.

Do any actual programmers or reps come in here to help address these issues? I can’t be the only customer who has encountered this problem. Thank you in advance.

Starting your request for support after 5pm on a Friday is not the fastest way of getting attention and support from the devs that do come by here, mind you.

Have you used a Patch Guard disabler for the Windows session?
