VAC Check Failed


#1

I keep getting VAC Check Error every time when I try to join a game https://drive.google.com/open?id=1dSUqTNRx-Mhf6aWk4cs2iDjp9zN7P2-k. I also get a black screen when I try to join a plaza https://drive.google.com/open?id=1CA0FyhEbYFi93Xzg2N7CCu1X4V6Y_tUr. I’ve never been banned or anything. I’ve tried everything from this to try and fix this issue https://support.steampowered.com/kb_article.php?ref=2117-ILZV-2837. I’ve also tried reinstalling the game and verify integrity of game files in steam. When I do one of those 2 things, I can like play 1 game and get the error again.

The first error is because the VAC system is taking too long on something, it’s either something your computer is doing or something the server is doing.

As for the black screen, i recommend finding your specs and posting them here, might be they can’t handle running the game for very long.

Well based on the graphics card it could be something related to the drivers you have installed for it, seems that all of the sudden all the newest GTX series are having this issue.

Seems you can fix it by downloading Display Driver Uninstaller if you don’t have it, then uninstalling any Nvidia graphics drivers and any other graphics drivers you might have, and then installing the newest graphics drivers for the GTX 1060.

As for the steam VAC authentication id guess only the devs can help you there.
