as per the title lost ark wont load, the EAC banner pops up, finishes loading and then nothing. No lost ark logo across the screen, nada. I have tried reinstalling, and repairing the EAC files. tried restarting the pc. The issue started after another DC occured yesterday, and normally I could force stop the app and just restart lost ark, but not despite all these attempts to fix the issue I cant seem to get lost ark to load.
any help or suggestiongs would be appreciated
I see you have tried to repair EAC, could you also attempt to uninstall EAC. If that fails the steps below may help.
Guessing here but
try to go to C:\Program Files (x86)\EasyAntiCheat
Delete the file named “EasyAntiCheat.sys” ( if it doesn’t let you do it cause the file is being used, restart the pc and delete after restart. )
now try to run the EAC installer again as admin
That error is EAC not being able to write the new files over , so you might still have EAC running in the background ( as such it will not let it rewrite the file ).
Hey, uninstalled eac and reverified and tried that fix already. Both arent working
A full reinstall may be a bit extreme, but what I’ll do is move this post over to the game support section of the forums, our support staff will be able to give some troubleshooting for you.

as state previously thats not working. A fresh reinstall of the whole game worked for about 20 minutes to the next DC, and then the problem persisted and cant play.
I have also been unable to launch the game after attempting the EAC fix.
Tried the fixes mentioned by Eulah and Ominous with no results. I have also done a complete reinstall with nothing changing.
