    Just some info: after FC24 todays update, RTSS overlay is now working with FC24 (maybe with another EA titles too). FINALLY EA put RTSS in the whitelist. I hope they don't mess up again.

    Maybe not the right place, but I saw people asking for EAGames support and they don`t understand that its EA Fault

    Thanks Unwinder for this wonderful app. I love Overlay, there is nothing comparable.

    interesting. I don't own FC24 to confirm it myself, but I checked BF 2042 and FIFA 23 which share the same EA anticheat. RTSS is still not whitelisted there.

    Also working with Battlefield 2042 here, I've seen reports that version 7.3.6 is not working with Battlefield, rolling back to 7.3.5 works.

    Then those guys from EA anticheat team whitelisted old 7.3.5 digital signature only (which is no longer valid to sign anything) and forgot to whitelist a signature used to sign 7.3.6 and newer builds. Typical EA, why I'm not surprized.
    Rolling back to 7.3.5 because of that like linked twitter post is suggesting is just plain stupid. 7.3.6 fixes important things.

    Thats it! I didn't update my RTSS yet, i'm using 7.3.5, cause I didn't feel the need to.

    But, come on EA, 7.3.6 is avaliable like a month ago, 7.3.7 in the oven, and they whitelisted an old version o_O

    Tried to explain it at reddit, but local "geniuses" traditionally downvoted provided info. We know everything about RTSS much better than the developer. (c) What's a fun place :D

    I've been contacted by Andres Roldan @ fluidattacks, the same researcher who posted CVE quoted above. He discovered one more issue inside the driver, and this time it is not an intended functionality, so I'd definitively like to patch it. He found the way to bypass MSI AB driver's ACL and access driver's functionality from non-admin processes. I've already patched it a few weeks ago, but it took some time to get driver signed on MSI side. So new beta with it will be available shortly.

    We're uploading RTSS 7.3.7 beta 3 Build 28022 and MSI AB 4.6.6 Beta 4 Build 16449 (includes RTSS 7.3.7 beta 3) with a fix for ACL bypass vulnerability mentioned in the previous post. Both MSI AB and RTSS got new Bulgarian localization by @didopioneer. Also MSI AB got a few changes mentioned in the previous posts (#1 #2), I'll summarize them a bit later.

    Grab new versions here:

    As I promised before, here is full changes list for recently released betas:

    RTSS 7.3.7 beta 3 Build 28022:


    - Added Bulgarian localization
    - Fixed ACL bypass vulnerability in OverlayEditor's RTCoreMini driver

    MSI Afterburner 4.6.6 Beta 4 Build 16449:

    - Added alternate V/F point locking mode. Now you may consequently press <L> key inside V/F curve editor to switch between voltage locking and max frequency locking modes
    - Optimized GPU context switching implementation in HAL. This provides slightly faster GPU selection in GUI and slightly reduced CPU polling time for the systems with multiple GPUs
    - Now MSI Afterburner uses extended 32KB RTSS text slot instead of previously used 4KB slot to display OSD, so legacy MSI Afterburner OSD can fit 8x more text items without hitting the limit
    - Added Bulgarian localization
    - Fixed ACL bypass vulnerability and NULL ptr dereference in RTCore driver (reported by Andres Roldan)
    - Bundled RTSS version has been upgraded to 7.3.7 beta 3

    Weird. I cannot confirm it sadly. Just tried 2042 on my side, 7.3.6 and 7.3.7are still not whitelisted yet here.

    Probably your https://github.com/p0358/Fuck_off_EA_App somehow breaks EA anrticheat. That's not something I'd like to try to reproduce/investigate. Anyway, it sadly still doesn't work in default config.

    Wow. Just tried it again and got it working with 7.3.7 on my side now. There were no BF updates. Probably EA anticheat is updated iteratively in waves at different systems and not for all at once.

    Can confirm that it works for 7.3.7 28021 Beta 2. Tried it moments ago, no issue at all.

    Edit: EA Sports FC 24 works too!
