I've been unable to play recently due to two problems:

  1. The game hangs on the copyright screen with the wise and Unreal logos, then quits


  1. The game loads, but then is unable to find a match to join

I suspected either a video problem or a Easy Anti-Cheat problem.
I validated files in Steam, then reinstalled the game.
I found two places in my file folders with Easy Anti-Cheat (C:\Program Files (x86) and C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\sandstorm) and I reinstalled them both.

I saw the sticky that suggested rolling back ADM video drivers, but I'm a little loathe to roll my drivers back 2 years for one game.

Any other thoughts or suggestions? I was really enjoying the game until recently. Thanks in advance!
