Experimental branch crash. Rustclient.exe not responding. White screen.

Hi guys, I’ve been able to log into and play the experimental branch until a week or so ago when it’s starting crashing on launch.

When I select Rust from my steam library, it goes through the usual motions, and when I select experimental it opens the config screen, and no matter what options I select it opens a big white screen titled “Rustclient” and says that its not responding. This goes on until I am able to terminate the process, which takes ages and multiple attempts through task manager.

Strangely enough it also seems to affect my browser (chrome) while the unresponsive white screen is open, making pages load extremely slowly, or more often not at all.

I’ve tried re-installing the EAC, reinstalling, updating .net framework and changing from windowed to full screen and don’t know what else to do, which is disappointing since experimental almost seems to be in a playable state at the moment.

Any idea’s chaps?

I have the same problem :frowning:

Tried to load experimental and I was getting the same thing at first. After a few attempts I was able to get the main menu and select a server, but after selecting a server it wouldn’t move past building height, so I was stuck on a grey screen that simply said # building height or whatever it says when trying to load a map.

For some reason I could only get information from my motherboard via device manager, and all it says is ACPI x86-based PC, hardware ID acpiapic.

I have this problem only when I start Rust through steam or when I start rust.exe. If I start RustClient.exe I can join on a Server, but I get kicked after a few seconds, because EasyAntiCheat is not running. That’s why I think EasyAntiCheat is the problem.

I’ve reinstalled Rust, but I still have this problem.
