Legacy Rust client not working


I am trying to play rust Legacy, but whenever I start up the legacy client, it just gives me a dead smiley face, and doesn’t do anything.

things I tried:

  • Disabling the firewall
  • Disabling anti-virus and anti-malware
  • Tried on 2 different locations (at my place, and my girlfriends place)
  • Deleting the local game-data and re-install.
  • Update .net
  • install vcredist

I know this is like Alpha, so I understand there are bugs, but is there a way too fix this? I also tried googling, but there wasn’t much info.

Also, I can play the experimental servers just fine. I know there are some problems atm, but I am having this issue since 3 days ago (When I bought the game) - Edit



anyone have any idea how i can fix this?
