Disable Easy Anti-Cheat

Online functionality might be affected. Play offline to prevent the risk of an account ban.

The embedded Easy Anti-Cheat component prevents unknown third-party tools from injecting themselves in the game. This protection can be disabled, which allows the use of said tools.

Launch the game without EAC[3]
  1. Go to <path-to-game>\RED\Binaries\Win64.
  2. Create a shortcut to RED-Win64-Shipping.exe.
  3. Add -eac-nop-loaded as a command line argument to the shortcut.
  4. Launch the game using this shortcut.
  5. Third-party stuff will now be able to properly hook or inject into the game.


Be sure to have Steam running when using the shortcut, as otherwise an "Unable to initialize SteamAPI" error will be given.

For simplicity and ease-of-use, it is recommended that you use DBFZ Mod Manager before acquiring and installing mods.

DBFZ Mod Manager

A very simple tool that allows you to install mods by dragging and dropping them into the utility.
Includes built-in 'one-click-install' functionality via GameBanana which allows you to install mods from the website. Requires a free GameBanana account to set up.
Advice and troubleshooting
  • You should disable Easy Anti-Cheat before installing any mods. You can do this through DBFZ Mod Manager too.
  • Make a copy of the game's original executable before doing anything. Useful in case you have issues after patching the game through the mod manager.
  • The game must be patched via the mod manager before mods will function. This patch needs to be reapplied after each subsequent update released for the game.

DBFZ OST Mod Maker

Best used intandem with the DBFZ Mod Manager utility.
A powerful tool that can create a custom music mod replacing partially, specifically, or the entire original soundtrack.
Audio conversion may be required; the sound files added to the program must be of the .OGG file format.
The file size of each desired song must be equal to or smaller than the song it replaces, which will vary for each song. The tool will notify you the file size limitation for each song upon selection.
