Error while loading game/anti-cheat

Hello, me and a few others guild members are facing this same error while trying to start the game.
What we have tried: Game file integrity check / Game repair
Tried restarting PC
Reinstall drivers
Uninstall and install game again and nothing work.

Hi @EasleyRR, I can’t read the writing in the picture but I do think I understand enough to reply.

'Error 3005: Create File Failed with 32 ’ error is displayed when a user tries to launch a game that is protected by Easy Anti-Cheat and it occurs because the application fails to create a file in the folder where Easy Anti-Cheat is installed. It might also indicate a corruption of the software.

I think you need to repair your EAC install.

To repair Easy Anti-Cheat:

  1. Open the Lost Ark Application in your Steam library.
  2. Open Settings, select Manage, and then Browse Local Files.
  3. Go to Steam > steamapps > common > Lost Ark > Binaries > Win64 and open the EasyAntiCheat folder.
  4. Right click the EasyAntiCheat_Setup.exe file, and select Run as administrator.
  5. Select Current game, if it’s not the default option, and then select Repair Service.

I hope that helps you.
Good Luck :+1:


Well, it worked. Thank you!
Spreading the word to guild members, it also worked for them!


Excellent stuff @EasleyRR, I am glad that worked for you and hope your Guildies have the same success.

Enjoy :+1:
