I am unable to start the game on Official Realm. No error message received and I am still able to tab to the launcher itself.
I am however able to start the game on Modded realm even though I have never installed any mods.
If I make launcher run as administrator then it works fine, however that is not an option since i get steam_appid.txt presence error in the folder which annoys the hell out of me (I was able to ignore it for over a month but enough is enough).
I have tried re-installing the game, fixing the anti cheat etc but nothing works.
So yeah, I need a solution to game not starting on official mode and to that steam_appid.txt file error pop up if i make it run as administrator (deleting the file aint working).
If you haven’t already, could you please try:
- Remove the ‘Certificates’ directory located here:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Warhammer Vermintide 2\EasyAntiCheat
- Then, proceed to repair Easy Anti-Cheat using the EasyAntiCheat_Setup executable located here:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Warhammer Vermintide 2\installers\EasyAntiCheat
You may be prompted to Verify Integrity of Game Files on launch. Keep me posted!
Hello, I’m unable to start a game in the Official Mode, every time I start I get a Backend Error - Server cannot connect. I’ve verified the game files - no errors at all.
What do I do in that case then? Vermintide is added as an exception to my firewall already.
Just in case, do you need my console log or sth?
I did manually verify the files as well and steam found 2 conflicts so it downloaded something new, however that also did not fix anything.
That did not help.
My steam is also located on D drive, not C.
I was not prompted to Verify Integrity of Game Files on launch.
Any other update regarding this issue?
Could you try a Selective Startup, to see if any of your programs are conflicting with Easy Anti-Cheat?:
- Press the Windows key
- Type ‘msconfig’ and select ‘System Configuration’
- On the ‘General’ tab, select ‘Selective Startup’
- Deselect ‘Load startup Items’
- Reboot your PC
- Launch Vermintide 2 as normal
Still same thing, won’t start in official mode. Let me know what other steps I can take.
It’s a complicated one unfortunately. Am I right in saying that you can dismiss the
steam_appid.txt error, and the Official realm will work as normal?
I can only dismiss the error if I do not run the game as Administrator which in turn won’t even start the game even though the modded starts.
So my options are: either play it in admin mode and get the same error every time or do not play the game at all cause it won’t start part of it otherwise.
I need solution to either of these 2 things
I think you may need to reach out to Easy Anti-Cheat directly, in this situation. They’ll be best suited to assist with this. You can reach them at: https://www.easy.ac/en-us/support/game/contact/tech/
It’s likely a Process Monitor Log will be requested. Instructions on how to do this can be seen here: https://www.easy.ac/en-us/support/game/guides/logs/
Sorry we can’t be of more help.
I’m having the same issue, so I followed this tip and deleted the Certificates folder. Unfortunately, when I run the eac_launcher.exe to restore the certs, it says that my Vermintide2.exe is invalid.
I did a Verify Local Files, which identified 3 items to be reacquired. It did acquire them, but the game still won’t launch, with or without mods.
