Encountering the ACE Center error in Wuthering Waves can be frustrating, but fortunately, it’s an easy fix. This error is linked to the game’s anti-cheat system, which is designed to prevent cheating and maintain a fair gaming environment.

To resolve the ACE Center error, you’ll need to adjust the settings for the anti-cheat system in Windows Services. Here’s a step-by-step guide to help you fix this problem:

  1. Open Windows Services:
    • Press Win + R to open the Run dialog box.
    • Type services.msc and press Enter. This will open the Services window where you can manage various services running on your PC.
    • Alternatively, search for “Services” in the Windows Search Bar.
  2. Locate the ACE Center Service:
    • In the Services window, scroll down the list to find the service related to the ACE Center. It might be named something similar to “ACE Center” or “Anti-Cheat Expert.”
  3. Change the Startup Type:
    • Right-click on the ACE Center service and select Properties from the context menu.
    • In the Properties window, find the Startup type dropdown menu. Change it from its current setting to Manual.
    • Click Apply, then OK to save the changes.
  4. Restart Your PC:
    • After making these changes, restart your computer. This ensures that the new settings take effect and can help resolve any lingering issues.

Once your PC has restarted, launch Wuthering Waves again. The ACE Center error should no longer appear, allowing you to enjoy the game without further interruptions. By setting the ACE Center service to manual startup, you effectively mitigate the conflict that causes the error.

If the issue persists, consider reaching out to Kuro Games’ support for further assistance, as they may provide additional troubleshooting steps or updates to the anti-cheat system.
