Troubleshooting

Instructions on how to solve certain problems and errors.

Common problems

I can't see any visuals and can't open menu

  • Make sure you actually injected first (you pressed OK on both message boxes).
  • Try pressing F2. This is default hotkey for Streamer Mode, which completely disables LS visuals. Maybe you disabled it by accident.
  • Make sure you don't use any overlays or any other third-party software which may interfere with the game, such as:
    • Blitz.gg overlay
    • Nvidia Experience / Freestyle / Shadowplay
    • Windows Game Bar / XBox Live Overlay
    • Discord overlay

Game freezes when I try to open menu

Few of our users who experienced this issue had Intel HD integrated graphics. Simply uninstalling current Intel Graphics Driver and installing a new one should fix this issue.

You may try using Intel Driver Assistant to install latest driver.

Loader freezes when I try to login

This is a known bug which happens to some users when their code is expired.
Please delete LS_Settings.ini file from LS loader folder and try again.

I get message about HWID reset

This is normal if you recently updated your Windows, changed some hardware, internet connection or used VPN.
However, if you constantly keep getting this message - it means that something is causing your HWID to be calculated differently every time.
Usually this is caused by having multiple network devices:

  • VPNs create virtual network devices.
  • Virtual machines (VMware, VirtualBox etc) create virtual network devices.
  • Your PC (i.e. motherboard) may have multiple physical network devices, although you may be using only one.

Make sure to disable all inactive unused devices:

  • Press Win+R, type ncpa.cpl and press Enter.
  • Right click on each disconnected/inactive network device and make sure it's disabled.
  • Keep the one you use for your internet connection enabled.

Error: '1970-01-01 0:00:00' is not a valid date and time

Error

  • You will have to change your short date format to yyyy-MM-dd
    To do this please open your Windows settings: Region Change date, time or number formats.
    You can open it with either of these ways:
    • Open Windows Explorer, type this path Control Panel\Clock and Region\Region and press Enter.
    • Open Windows Explorer or press Win+R, type intl.cpl and press Enter.
  • Depending on your system language this format may be different (use different letters).
    Basically you need the format to be year-month-day just like this for example: 2022-04-18
  • Choose yyyy-MM-dd short date format like on this picture:
    Date and Time Format
    If you were able to change this here, then just save your settings and it should be fixed.
  • If not, and you don't have this option, please go to:
    Additional settings... Date Date formats Short date Type manually yyyy-MM-dd Press OK.
