Just started playing Insurgency Sandstorm again and I'm having no luck getting more than 2-3 minutes into a match before I get kicked with a message that reads " Kicked from server: Anti-cheat: Client integrity violation" I've done some research and found a lot of people were having the same issue but the thread was from like 7 months ago and apparently, 7 months ago the devs were aware of the issue and were working on a fix. I also found that people were "verifying game file integrity" (which I've tried) and uninstalling and reinstalling the game to no avail. Can anyone help me fix this issue? It may be worth mentioning, this is the only game I've experienced this issue with. Thanks for the read.
