So you never see our launcher at all, is that right? If so Please delete the ~/Library/Application Support/Paradox Interactive/ folder. To see it go to the Finder, hit command-shift-G (ie Go To) and paste in ~/Library/Application Support/ . Then run the game from the PLAY Button in Steam, to reinstall the launcher.

If that does not get the launcher running, we will need these files from that same folder:

Attach ALL .log files Found here ~/Library/Application Support/Paradox Interactive/launcher-v2/

Let's try forcing an update of the launcher.

Download the installer package: https://forumcontent.paradoxplaza.com/emailsignatures/2021.5-mac-prod.zip

Unpack the file you just downloaded and place the three files in the Steam folder for the game you're having issues with. If asked if you want to replace already existing files click "yes" - that's a sign you are in the right place!

Then please repeat the launcher reinstall procedure (ie deleting that folder) from before.

Good luck with that!

{ “configPath “ : “ ~/Library/Application Support/Paradox Interactive/launcher-settings.json “ }
That is normal, the launcher is built to be only run from Steam.

I can see in those logs the launcher has not had a clean reinstall since early 2020, so Please delete the ~/Library/Application Support/Paradox Interactive/ folder. To see it go to the Finder, hit command-shift-G (ie Go To) and paste in ~/Library/Application Support/ . Then run the game from the PLAY Button in Steam, to reinstall the launcher.

In future please make a new thread rather than re-opening an old one; the launcher and game have changed a lot since 2021.

Was there no cpatch.log file in that folder?

What exactly are you seeing when you hit PLAY in Steam, any error?

Does eu4.app run from Finder okay?

This game does not run on any iOS device ... ?!?
