Squad Issue: Won't Launch.

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I just bought Squad today in order to play with my friends, although. When I start tried to start it up on Steam, the Launcher would show that it's loading and preparing to launch the game. I waited for a brief 4-5 minutes before wondering what was going on. I had opened task manager to see if it was truly running. It was.

 

The CPU usage kept going up into the 1,000K region and I decided to try closing it but to no avail. ( http://prntscr.com/cr072n )

I've tried verifying its cache, restarting, clearing steam's download cache. Nothing yet.

 

I am hoping that an admin or developer will see this and help me with this issue.

 

(Also, please don't reply to this topic just to say that you have the same problem. It will save anyone else hassle if they were to have the same problem and were looking for a quick solution.)

Hello and welcome to Squad @kleyna,

try this to figure out if EAC is causing troubles:

 

add "-noeac" to the launch options of Squad.

Spoiler

start Squad.

report back your findings.

 

note: with this start parameter, you will not be able to connect to a Squad servers. - This is just a quick test whether the game starts up.

It works now.

Glad to hear.

What did you do in order to solve the problem?

I had used the -noeac launch option. I don't think I can join any official servers or servers that have the EAC enabled.

Hey, 

after a couple of days trying out multiple solutions to my problem i stumbled upon this one. Tried it, result ist still the same but i think i have the same "symptoms". my pc normally idles at about 15% Cpu ussage, so Squad gets started and it rockets to 100% for about 2 sec. then the game crashes, still haven't found a solution. 

 

thanks in advance

I was able to solve this problem by reinstalling easy anti cheat, since i did that, i never ran into 100% cpu usage issue again.

 

*Didn't do the no eac command.
