UNSOLVED The Division 2 + too much LED software = I accidentally the whole Easy Anti-Cheat1 Likes/6 Replies/732 ViewsOriginal poster JellyOfDeath 2 posts
I just tried running The Division 2 on brand new hardware a few minutes ago, and ran into an interesting problem. Apparently, running iCUE , Mystic Light and the LED lighting services from my Asus mobo makes Easy be not so easy!
Ledkeeper, LightingService and various other bloatgunk processes from the three vendors got flagged as cheating. I tried uninstalling Mystic Light and iCUE, which made everything run smoothly.
Considering that both iCUE and Mystic Light are integrated into the game, Ubisoft might want to crack a few skulls to make Easy support their games.
Hardware specs and a couple of tests that I did:
Asus TUF Gaming B560M-Plus (Armoury Crate is fine on its own)
MSI RTX 3080 Ti Gaming X Trio 12G (Mystic Light worked fine on top of Armoury Crate)
Corsair Vengeance RGB Pro Black 3200MHz (installing iCUE made every warning klaxon go off, blaming me of cheating, when all I wanted was pretty lights)

I stay away from any useless stuff like this that would only bloat my system with additional software "required". It's one of my buying criteria.
If I can't get around it, I prefer to turn if off from low level software (bios) and forget about it.
Lighting wise, all I need is an illuminated kb, one color, static (no circus lights).
... and I actively avoid all those software pieces you enumerated. They only create additional issues, and they have no real utility.

@jellyofdeath Thanks for reporting this to us. Do you have any other games that use Easy Anti Cheat? If so, can you see if it happens there too?
If you don't have any others, I would still suggest raising it to them too, as if it happens with The Division 2, it may be likely to happen with other games that use EAC, so it's something that they would need to know about.
