Thanks guys. It looks complicated. True or no?

I don't know if you bought it since but ...

Is the game complicated? yes but very accessible. Just place the cursor on blue words. The game is easy to play, hard to master due to the high number of factors.
Do you need to be an expert in medieval stuff? No, units are simple to understand.


It is a game you'll discover and master on the long run.

This is a game that keeps giving... agree with the statement of easy to play, and hard to master.

If you are starting out select an Easy starting point nation. The tooltips are superb, allowing you to drill down into any topic. Start out with your own small goals,

It is often the unintentional outcomes that provide the most enjoyment (and frustration). Not everything will go to plan (succession will create chaos), especially when you start out and is still busy learning the game. And if you are interested in a specific topic there are Youtube videos that will explain it.

If everything goes to plan Paradox will be supporting the game for a number of years, and it will mature. CK2 had an 8-year run, unheard of with most games.

Can't get any of my Paradox games to run right now.  When I try to start one I need to first install the Paradox Launcher.  But I can't because when I try I get: "another installation is taking place and must finish," etc.  But no other installation is running.  I can't seem to find any help at Steam.  Anyone know a fix?  Thanks.

If the game is the Steam version you can try 'verify file integrity'.

    Launch Steam.
    From the Library section, right-click on the game and select Properties from the menu.
    Select the Local files tab and click the Verify integrity of game files... button.
    Steam will verify the game's files - this process may take several minutes.

Thanks Pete. But no joy. Can't load either my EU IV & HOI IV as well.  Both of which used to work fine.  I guess it is a new "launcher" that is causing the problem.
