Fix: "Epic Games Account Error" on Fall Guys

The Epic Games Account Error, which comes with the Error Code “200_19000”, is one of the commonly faced errors in Fall Guys. This error can ruin your Fall Guys experience as it repeatedly stops the game from launching.

How to Fix Fall Guys Error 200_19000

Before diving into solutions, let’s see what the potential causes of this issue are.

  • Epic Online Services Not Running – The main culprit of this error seems to be the Epic Games Online Service. If this service is not running automatically in the background, it can cause errors with Fall Guys and other epic games.
  • Weak Internet Connection – If you have a weak or unstable internet connection, Fall Guys may struggle to connect to Epic Online Services. This could explain why you’re receiving this error.
  • Missing or Corrupted Game Files – While Fall Guys were downloaded on your system, some of its files may have been lost or corrupted. These missing/corrupted files can cause many issues and prevent your game from launching.
  • Antivirus/Firewall Interference – Your Antivirus software or the Windows Firewall may mistakenly flag Fall Guys as a potential threat to your system, preventing it from connecting to Epic Online Services which can lead to this error.
  • Outdated Microsoft Visual C++ – Microsoft Visual C++ is a compiler made by Microsoft that is needed by programs to function properly. You may encounter errors when playing newer games like Fall Guys if you have an outdated version of Microsoft Visual C++ on your PC.

1. Check your Internet Connection

If you’re experiencing the 200_19000 Error Code in Fall Guys, the first step is to check your internet connection; just to be sure if your internet connection is slow and/or unstable.

So before you try the solutions listed below, ensure your internet is working properly. If you have something downloading or streaming in the background, you should pause it before you launch Fall Guys.

2. Manually Start Epic Online Services

For Fall Guys to connect to its servers, the Epic Online Services must run automatically in the background while the game is open. You might get this error message if this service isn’t functioning correctly.

If this service is not running properly, then Fall Guys will be unable to connect to its servers. To manually start the Epic Online Services, follow the steps we’ve listed below:

  1. Press Windows Key and type Services before pressing enter. This will open a window where you’ll see a list of services.
  2. Scroll through the list until you find Epic Online Services.
