EasyAntiCheat Launch Error Failed to start the game
(I posted this in the bugs section previously, but realized too late that this area existed and couldn't move it, so I'm reposting here as a failsafe.)
Up until today, Dead by Daylight has run without many issues for me, aside from server related issues every once in a while, but when I tried getting on the game today, I was met with this error from EasyAntiCheat.
I have never encountered this issue before, and I've tried reinstalling the game, verifying the integrity of the game cache, deleting my Steam download cache, reinstalling and repairing EAC,restarting my PC, checked my anti-virus software and made sure everything dealing with EAC was allowed, but nothing has worked. It just loads the bar all the way, then it hangs for a bit, and then this message pops up. Looking at the EAC log file also proved useless, as it didn't describe anything being amiss. I'm at my wits end about this, and it's heartbreaking to me, since I've played this game for almost two years now, and don't wish to lose access to all of that progress. I'm on Windows 7, and if anyone has a solution, please let me know if a fix has been found.
