The Asus Aura app hooks in to DLLs which can be exploited in the game and as such gets locked out by EAC.

This means i always have to manually close the LightingService process before playing? :cry:

You could make a batch file to do it for you. For example, I run one to disable Windows Defender.

That way you’re at least mostly-automating the process.


Does yours not work if defender is running or does it just work better without it? I may try disabling that as well.

It’s an old i5-3570k and gameplay sucks when Windows Defender decides it needs to scan_all_the_things. It turns back on all by itself in around 4 hours after turning it off manually.
