  • Finally, Rust is in sale and ready to mingle. I downloaded the game through steam (23 november) After pressing play there showed an small image, a rust logo visible in the bottom and a loading bar in the middle. After a few seconds the loading bar completed the image disappeared. Around 10 seconds later I got a crash message: ''Rust has encountered an error and must close.'' Followed by the name of the crashreport(at the bottom of post) and asking me if I would like to open it. So I can't launch the game. My passion for the game drove me to search for a fix, I've yet to be succesfull. Here are the things that I have tried: note I rebooted my PC after each step. 1.verify integrity 2. reinstall 3.Try admin privilages 4.reinstall easyanticheat 5.Install everything in _CommonRedist 6. Tried Rustclient.exe, this started a black window where after a few seconds music started playing.(waited it out roughly 10 mins, nothing happened) 7. Checked graphics drives, yep there uptodate 8. reinstalled OS (win 10 home pro, 64bit) 9. tried the unplug jacks fix, suggested online 10. checked firewall, should not be a problem. And here I am now, surrendering to trying to find the fix on my own and asking for help. If anyone has a suggestion please post it and I will definitely try it out. Thank you so much for your help. -Esperon Here is the crashreport I get after starting the game: Rust [version: Unity 2017.1.2f1 (cc85bf6a8a04)] RustClient.exe caused an Access Violation (0xc0000005)   in module RustClient.exe at 0033:6465ef9f.

  • Try to change your steam download directory to something else and re-install the game. steam settings -> downloads -> STEAM LIBRARY FOLDERS (at top)
  • Thank you so much for your suggestion Unfortunately it did not fix the problem, I installed it on my other drive but still faced the error screen.
