Easy Anti-Cheat Launch Error: Failed to initialize the game launcher

image__18_.png

What is this?

Above error from the Easy Anti-Cheat may appear when launching the game, preventing it from starting. The issue stems from a limitation in the specific Easy Anti-Cheat version currently used in Bloodhunt where it can’t parse non-ascii characters, which can be present in Windows Usernames for example.
 

How do I solve this?

Following the guide below, will help you solve this error:

  1. Verify the integrity of your game files
  2. Locate the Game’s root folder.
      • Open Steam
      • Go to your Steam Library
      • Right click on Bloodhunt
      • Select Manage
      • Select Browse Local Files
      • A new window will appear.

  3. Replace the launcher.
      • In the new window make sure you see the "Tiger.exe" file.
      • Download the new launcher: Download here 
      • Replace the "Tiger.exe" with the new file you downloaded.
      • Launch the game.

I followed the workaround above, now I'm getting a "Launch Error: Settings.json not found" error.

We thought that might happen. Don't worry, we have a solution for that as well:

  1. Edit the launch options.
      • Open Steam
      • Go to your Steam Library
      • Right click on Bloodhunt
      • Select Properties...
      • In the field below "Launch Options" input: -anticheat_settings=Settings.json
      • Exit the Properties screen and launch the game.
