Game does not start. EAC Launcher Error Code 22

Right so the game was working around 5-6 hours ago when I played it in the afternoon. Wanted to play a few rounds now, but nope game absolutely refuses to start anymore.

When I start the game the EAC launcher opens, it loads to the full bar and then gives me an error saying: "LAUNCH ERROR: Game client encountered an application error. (Error code 22)"

Windows Event viewer gives me a few events too. The one It gives for Sandstorm is this:

There is no game log for this error but there's an EAC error log. It's not very helpful but here.


Also have an image of the error window itself.


Hope you guys can fix it. Thanks for reading all of this. Sling out.

Hey Slingshot

Try re-installing your easy anticheat

usually under C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\sandstorm\EasyAntiCheat unless the game is installed under a differn't drive.

Run the EasyAntiCheat_Setup.exe and it should ask to reinstall

One of our members of ours had the same issue. Seemed to fix it for him.



Issue fixed itself all of a sudden. Thanks though!
