So I had several rage fits over getting disconnected over and over each time I tried to play Rust. Sometimes I’d be in the game for 5 to 15 minutes and others I couldn’t even wake my character up. I searched around and I couldn’t find any help.
First of all Easy Anti Cheat needs Steam to run. I did not know this so the .exe I was running is why I was getting dumped immediatly upon entering the game. So first and foremost you need to run Rust through steam.
Second. Even though I had done the above I was still getting the random drop out. I would be running around gathering wood and then the wood would stop counting up and in a few moments I would be completely kicked from the game. I went into my system files and I gave a rust.exe permission to always run as an administrator. The pathway for me was
C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\Rust
in that folder there are two items named Rust, one has the logo and the other is genaric. I right clicked on the genaric one. Properties. Compatability. Run As Administrator.
I then tested it out for 2 hours without fail… for science.
I hope this helps. & Video Below.
