IF YOU DISABLE EAC YOU CAN'T GO ONLINE, IF YOU WANT TO DO SHENANIGANS WITH YOUR SAVE DON'T GO ONLINE WITH IT AFTERWARDS. IF YOU GOT YOURSELF BANNED BECAUSE YOU TRIED TO BRING YOUR LEVEL 999 CHEAT ENGINED CHAR ONLINE ITS YOUR OWN FAULT.
Guide
1. Create a .txt file and name it steam_appid.txt and it needs to go into the same folder that eldenring.exe is in.
2. Open it and add the string of numbers "1245620" (without quotes) to the file.
3. Launch the game by clicking on the exe file, DO NOT launch it through steam, it won't work if you do.

If you see this screen telling you that you can't go online when you reach the main menu then it worked.

However this screen will only show up if you set it to go online automatically in settings.
If you set it to start offline just try to go online and that message will appear.

To go online again launch it through steam so EAC is enabled.

Hello fellow retard here, you don't actually name the file steam_appid.txt because ITS ALREADY A DAMN TXT FILE. I just renamed it to steam_appid and it worked fine for me.:steamhappy:

And to add to that i care much more about my privacy. I would much rather play Elden Ring offline and not let EAC make a copy of every file on my pc.

It would be dumb if they did ban just for disabling it. Anyone playing on linux/steam deck will have to.

Isn't this tantamount to putting a target on your back for FromSoftware saying "please ban me"?

I'm trying to disable EAC because it is flagging one of my system files as untrusted and I can't play the game because of this. All of the methods for disabling EAC including this one don't seem to work for me. Is there anything else that I could try or am I stuck waiting for a patch that will hopefully fix this?
