This user found the "Improved Space Battles [Graphics]" Mod was causing this.

Oh, so this only applies to uploading or creating mods, is that right? Because that's not how I read your OP here!

excosy said: The launcher always warnings this. Also I cannot create or update mod.

Sorry if I misread you.

I have no Create Mod button either, and I'm on Win10. Are you saying you do on Win 10?

On your Win10 machine is your launcher the beta one you show here, or the non-beta 2021.10?

That should not be necessary of course! I'm glad it worked out for you.

Saves in the Steam Cloud should still be available. Local save files might have to be moved, but I know nothing about how Proton handles user files.

Okay I ran up my Ubuntu VM installation. The client log file is .local/share/ParadoxInteractive/launcher/cpatch.log - I'm surprised a search for that filename did not find it!

There are other .log files in that folder too, may as well add the latest one here, thanks.

No issues evident in those files I'm afraid.

You still get that same error as above? Does it show by itself as the launcher runs, or when you go in to look at mods, or when exactly?

Are your mods subscribed in the Steam Workshop or the Paradox mod site?

Either way, do the mod files physically exist here?
Documents/Paradox Interactive/Stellaris/mod/

I assure you that EU4 does not delete saves, ever! If you are playing Ironman it will overwrite the previous one each time it does a save operation of course, but no actual deletions as such.

Local saves are here:
Documents/Paradox Interactive/EU4/save games/

Steam cloud saves are visible here:
store.steampowered.com

Please try this:

- uninstall Paradox Launcher v2 from the Windows "Apps and features" utility, if still present.

Delete the following folders if still present:

- C:/users//AppData/Local/Programs/Paradox Interactive/
- C:/users//AppData/Local/Paradox Interactive/
- C:/users//AppData/Roaming/Paradox Interactive/launcher-v2/
To see the AppData folder you'll need to enable View Hidden Items in File Explorer.

- exit the Epic app entirely
- run EpicGamesLauncher.exe as the Windows Admin user

- run the game from the Epic client

IF that doesn't help, in this folder are some .log files:
C:/users//AppData/Local/Paradox Interactive/launcher-v2/
Please attach them here.

Note that you can run eu4.exe directly from File Explorer, which bypasses the launcher.

The game is getting a Windows error c0000409, but I don't know what problem in Windows causes that one.

I understand that. I was hoping we could do some diagnostic tests to pin down where the problem might be. But if you don't want to do that, that's your right of course.

FYI , in Ubuntu 21.04 I just subscribed to a mod that changes the game's UI to a Burgundy theme. The game loaded and ran perfectly fine, and the mod was enabled okay.

Does that just happen with CK3? Your other games like CK2 and EU4 are okay with mods?

What launcher version do you see? Current is 2021.10

And at what point does this crash occur? While the launcher is starting or running, or while starting or running the game from it?

mactex said: Having the same issue. Any up to date mod enabled causes a crash on launch. Also Linux.
What distro?

Has it always happened, or used to be okay at some point?

Have you checked with the mod authors, maybe they have a problem on Linux only?

Ulcomax said: Sometimes it runs in windowed mode, next time only in fullscreen.
I cannot explain that, it makes no sense really. I'm pretty sure you have a problem outside the game in some way, although quite what I cannot see as yet.

I notice this in that dxdiag:

If the game runs the logs do have to be somewhere. Did you try searching for, say, system.log , error.log or exceptions.log?  
Comment

What happens when you run stellaris.exe directly, any Windows error show up?


DXDIAG is a program you run from the Windows search box on the task bar. After running it will open a window and start collecting info with a progress bar in the lower-left corner. When it completes click the 'save all information' button and save it to a file then attach that file here.

Please attach here your Documents/Paradox Interactive/Stellaris/settings.txt and pdx_settings.txt .
From your Documents/Paradox Interactive/Stellaris/logs/ folder, attach here system.log , error.log .

I see you are in the beta of the launcher, which is actually older than the non-beta at present. Please opt out of that beta.

If that doesn't help, in this folder are some .log files:
C:/users//AppData/Local/Paradox Interactive/launcher-v2/
Please attach them here.

I haven't seen other such reports.

We need to determine which of you two has the problem. Can he join other passworded games? Can anyone else join your passworded games?

What if he hosts a passworded game, can you join it?

Please do a full **clean** re-install:

- move any valued save games elsewhere
- "uninstall" in Steam-EU4
- manually delete both the Steam/SteamApps/common/EU4 AND Documents/Paradox Interactive/EU4 folders
- re-install game in Steam, run a Steam Verify when done.
- add EU4.exe to the exceptions list of your antivirus app; ESPECIALLY if you have Windows Defender, add it to the Ransomware "Apps Allowed Through" list.
- start the game with no mods active and test

In particular make sure there are no files or folders left under either the Steam EU4 or Documents EU4 locations, before installing again.

I don't understand why you could not edit that save game file? What prevents you?
