    dear players,

    if you press play button and after that nothing happens please do the following actions:

    please delete frost and system folders from the root folder of the game and delete the folder named 'gameguard' if there is one.
    delete updater.cache.data file in the game folder (file is hidden). use attached .bat file for automatic deletion.
    after that fix game. for that click on a "gears" icon next to the 'play' button on eu.4game.com. then click 'fix game'.

    if it doesn't help you
    1. make sure you added frost and lineage ii files to the exclusions of your antivirus.

    5. if you don’t have any antivirus please check your computer for viruses.
    the thing is that frost sees viruses as cheats injecting game process. for checking you can use, for example, the free utility anti-malware

    7. if you use any proxy servers try to turn it off
    8. if recommendations mentioned above don’t help you please try to disable extraneous services windows
    if you cannot understand what exactly software conflicts with the protection system, the following actions will disable all extraneous services windows, which are not part of your operating system.
    if you use special software (to provide access to the internet, special drivers for audio devices) please remember that these applications may temporarily not work after disabling.
    but anyway, these services can be enabled separately.

    2. indicate antivirus you use, screenshot of its exclusions lists. if you don’t have any antivirus also declare it
