Is there a solution to this other than just having a bare metal backup with windows or running games that use this in a Virtual Machine? I would love to be able to run Elden Ring with some friends but TBH I’m not comfortable with EAC just having it’s way on my Linux system.
It’s a trap.
I’m sure the mouse would love to eat the cheese, too. But if he is smart, he’ll walk away.
Elden Ring has EAC support on Linux (https://areweanticheatyet.com/)
You have 2 choices:
- Play the game with friends (EAC involved)
- Don’t play the game at all (no EAC involved)
There ain’t no fun in using Easy Anti
I’m always on a VPN, & that posted link won’t even let me onto the site to read about it.
So I just walk away (so to speak).
Welcome to the EndeavourOS forum. I hope you enjoy your time here.
- Play the game solo, (& with no player messages) (no EAC involved) by running eldenring.exe directly.
On a different note, I think EAC is much less invasive in Linux. Not kernel level at least.
I wonder whether it could be sandboxed to some useful degree, for instance with firejail, and still work.
AFAIK Elden Ring has a launch option for disabling EAC.
Not natively, but this
echo "%command%" | sed 's/start_protected_game.exe/eldenring.exe/' | sh
seems to work.
And for more options, I just tested this
echo "mangohud gamemoderun %command%" | sed 's/start_protected_game.exe/eldenring.exe/' | sh
which works a charm. It’s good because EAC has been giving me trouble for two weeks or so. Much more convenient than renaming the executables.
No friends, no anti cheats
To be honest I play mostly story driven single players. The last multiplayer game I played was Insurgency Sandstorm and It was working fine with EAC.
