EasyAntiCheat Error Messages in For Honor

EasyAntiCheat can display a wide array of different messages. With this article we want to help you understand how EasyAntiCheat communicates and what the message you receive means. 

First, please have a look at our general EasyAntiCheat FAQ. It lists a variety of messages and provides an easy solution for most errors on Uplay and Steam. 

Most issues occurring with EasyAntiCheat can be resolved by making sure that your Uplay client is up to date and by VERIFYING THE STATUS OF THE INSTALLATION OF THE GAME.
If you are using Steam, VERIFY THE GAME within the Steam Client. 

If those two conditions are met and you are still getting an error message, the following information should help you resolve your issue.

If the error message occurs when you launch Uplay, the LAUNCHER ERRORS article may help you find a solution.

          The errors documented are:

EAC Hash file not found
EAC Hash error
EAC Hash Certificate revoked
Unknown file version
Missing required file

One or more files of your game may have been modified, damaged or is missing, and needs to be repaired. To do so, make sure that Uplay is up to date and by VERIFYING THE STATUS OF THE INSTALLATION OF THE GAME. If you are using Steam, VERIFY THE GAME within the Steam client 

Unknown game file
An unknown file that is not part of the game installation was found to be loaded from the game directory.
First close the running game and then delete the file inside the game directory. After deleting the file you may start the game again.

Untrusted system file
The game loaded a system dll that failed an integrity check. This error indicates a system level corruption.
In most cases this can be fixed by running the following command with Administrator rights:
sfc /scannow

Alternatively, this error may indicate a virus infection in the system and we highly recommend running a full anti-virus system scan.
Addionally, make sure that all available updates have been installed through Windows Update.

Forbidden module loaded / Forbidden tool detected
A hacking tool running in background.
Check that there are no unknown programs running with the Windows Task Manager. Restarting Windows will also ensure that any previously started hacking tools are fully unloaded in the system.

Corrupted memory
The in-memory game code was detected to have been corrupted. This error is very rare and can occur if the physically installed RAMs are defective and causing runtime memory corruption.
Check that your game installation is up-to-date.
Use a memory test tool, such as MemTest86, to check the condition of the installed RAM.

Anti-Cheat Error
A hack attempt to the anti-cheat core was detected. This error should never occur under normal conditions.
Check that your game installation is up-to-date.

Corrupted packet flow
Packet corruption of anti-cheat communication between the game client and the connected host was detected. This error may occur if there is heavy packet loss in the multiplayer connection.
Try joining to another multiplayer session with low latency.
Check that your game installation is up-to-date.

Forbidden system configuration
This violation is triggered if e.g. the Windows Kernel Patch Protection has been disabled or a forbidden modification is found in the Windows Kernel. This error is a strong indicator of a rootkit virus infection and we recommend running a full system anti-virus scan or re-installing Windows.
