I added the command to WD2 shortcut, but a message pops up in STEAM asking me if I want to ok that. Can command just be added to Steam Game Properties launch options instead of Desktop Shortcut? If yes, what do I put as command in launch options under game properties in Steam? Thoughts appreciated

UPDATE: I was able to get EAC disabled just through Steam. I didn't use a desktop shortcut or Launch Options in UPlay. I added the following in Launch Options under game Properties in Steam: "-eac_launcher -launcher_restarted". I didn't start a save or new game, but I did get the EAC disabled message when I booted/started game through Steam. Hope this helps you guys also

Side Question: How do I know for sure if Online mode is really disabled?

I think I found a possible work around for my issue...

What I did was reinstall EAC as it should be, which I still had the same issue with it crashing at the splash screen. When it failed, I ran the game using the Steam created shortcut, which got everything starting, and when it started to load the fake login, I ALT + F4 out of the game, then started the trainer, following the given instructions, and it loaded correctly with the EAC error and all... hope this works for others as well, and good luck.

I am having the same issue as you were before, but your fix didn't work for me. Any thing else you think i should try?

Thanks in advance

If you are uncertain pull the plug or set your firewall to block all traffic during gameplay.

And ofc set the Uplay client to offline mode Link.

I purchased WD2 on Steam and set the following commands in Launch Options under game properties in Steam: "-eac_launcher -launcher_restarted". This may sound like a stupid question, but is it normal to not get the EAC disabled message if UPlay is set to offline mode? Thoughts and help greatly appreciated

Not sure why you are adding -launcher_restarted which could have an effect, but whenever I have tested the trainer I have put Steam in offline mode and UPlay in online mode and it works fine, I get the message and trainer works with no problem.

I added "-launcher_restarted" because that seemed to work straight through Steam, without having to have a desktop shortcut to the game. Someone earlier in thread said to have UPlay in offline mode (I purchased WD2 through Steam). Anyway, with UPlay in offline mode, I did not get the EAC disabled message, but did get a message saying some services are disabled or something like that. I just want to make sure I am doing this correctly, don't want to get the ban hammer

I'm getting an error that says missing EasyAntiCheat Launcher.dlls.

Can anyone assist with a work around to this?

Thanks in advance.


Edit: Solved my own issue - human error. Thanks

Ok, so here is the real question. Anyone figured out how to skip the 2 minutes of intros and fake login crap yet?
