I have the same problem with a new intel build with a 3080 rtx graphics card. The game runs fine without EAC but I can only play single player then. If I start the EAC launcher, the splash screen just disappears. I find the game dumped on startup but there are no EAC errors in the EAC log. HELP!
Having same issue with the Steam version Star Wars Squadrons. Haven't played it since the update but gave it a whirl during the holidays and can't get beyond the EASY Cheat splash screen. The splash screen disappears and the Squadrons icon is removed form the task bar. Steam tells me the game is still running. Task manager tells me the game is still running but somethings not right.
verified the files
uninstalled and reinstalled Squadrons
tried to run in VR mode and non VR mode
Altered my screen resolution
Changed the high DPI settings
uninstalled Steam VR and Reinstalled
