As a result of the significant number of impact players who have reported that they are unable to play the game, we have made the decision to do additional research into this issue in order to determine the root of the problem. The following is a condensed list of all of the potential causes:

In this particular scenario, the only thing you can do is to research the problem and wait for the developers who are responsible to fix the server problem.
  • Your account has been prohibited – According to the developers who worked on this, the overwhelming majority of the time when this error occurs, it is because your account has been banned. This could be happening as a result of you cheating and other players reporting you, but it could also be happening as a result of the ban system automatically flagging and banning you. Both scenarios are possible. You have no choice but to join the official The Cycle Frontier Discord server and inquire with the server moderators as to whether or not you have been banned. Talk to them about the different choices you have in a situation like that and see what they think.
  • Corrupted files –  Another factor that could be causing this issue is the presence of corrupted files on your computer, which have a variety of effects on how the game is played. The Cycle Frontier error code 2 is only one of the many different types of errors that might occur as a result of damaged files. This is occurring as a result of a false positive, an interrupted update, or for one of several other possible reasons. To resolve this issue, all you need to do is run a check on the files using the Steam application to ensure that they are in good shape. If errors are identified in the files during this check, they will be fixed as well.
  • Drivers for Nvidia that are out of date – The Cycle Frontier error code 2 could possibly be caused by some pending Nvidia upgrades that you have neglected to apply. This may occur due to the fact that the game will not function as it should if the most recent update is not installed on the system. Use the Nvidia GeForce Experience application to check for available updates, and then install those updates on your system if they are found. This issue can be resolved by following these steps.

Now that you are aware of all of the factors that could be contributing to this issue, the following is a rundown of the solutions that you should use in order to resolve it:

1. Check if there are server problems

Before you go straight to the potential fixes that will help you fix this issue, you should first consider that The Cycle Frontier error code 2 could be caused by an ongoing server outage.

This error might appear when the server is going through some problems that are making it unplayable, or when the server is going through a scheduled maintenance period where the devs are repairing in-game or server problems.

You should take a few moments to check or disprove the applicability of a case like this before you dismiss it as irrelevant. If you keep getting this error code whenever you try to log in to The Cycle Frontier game, this is a very likely explanation for the problem.

The only place that you can check the server status is the official Twitter page dedicated to this game. When you access this page, look through it to see if the devs have made any new posts or announcements about ongoing server problems or scheduled maintenance.

In case you see a post that shows you this, read the description and the comments as well to see what are other people recommending.

If you didn’t find anything and you are sure that the server is not the problem for this issue, check below the next method.

2. Determine if you have been blacklisted

When you run into this problem, the second thing you need to do is check and see whether you have been banned on your account. If you have, you need to fix that. A significant number of people are reporting that the vast majority of the time this issue occurs because you have been banned.

You can get banned at random even though you know you haven’t cheated and are positive that you haven’t broken the rules in any way, as long as other users you’ve come across while playing has submitted false claims about you. This is something that you’ve probably experienced. The system for banning users ought to be manual, which means that the support personnel ought to look into the matter before they ban you. But it’s possible that the decision to ban you was made by a computer program or a bot.

It is necessary for you to make contact with a Cycle Frontier moderator who is privy to this information in order to determine whether or not you have been banned. This is something that can be done using the official Discord server that is dedicated to The Cycle Frontier.

After entering this homepage, you will notice a button labeled “Accept invitation.” Click on that icon to enter the server where the game is being played. After familiarizing yourself with the server’s rules and confirming that you accept them, you will be granted access to the full functionality of the platform. You need to find a game administrator right now and inquire with him about whether or not you have been kicked out of the game.

If you have been banned from the forum, you need to contact the moderator as soon as possible to discuss your options. If you have been permanently banned from the site, you should investigate the possibility of creating a new account. However, if you feel that you were wrongfully banned from the site, you should talk to a moderator about regaining access to your account.

In the event that the moderator lets you know that you have not been banned, you need to inquire about his recommendations.

If after attempting this, the Cycle Frontier error code 2 continues to be displayed, proceed to the next solution.

3. Verify the game files’ integrity via Steam

The third thing you may attempt is to verify that all of the game files are complete and correct. Utilizing the Steam client is the way to go about performing this verification. Some players who have encountered this issue in the past are advising you to perform verification in an effort to establish whether or not corrupted files may be detected.

During this procedure, each game file will be analyzed for any signs of damage, and any files that are found to be damaged will be swapped out for those that are in pristine condition. If an inconsistency is found between two versions of the software, the software will immediately replace corrupted files with their uncorrupted equivalents.

Players have reported success in fixing the Cycle Frontier error code 2 by updating their NVIDIA drivers via the official program. This technique, while not the only one, has shown to be the most effective. This is a straightforward procedure that has shown to be effective for a lot of different players.

  4. Even if the installation does not specifically ask you to restart your computer after the updates have been installed, we strongly suggest that you do so nonetheless.
