  • Europa Universalis IV
Hello!

Bought the game on steam yesterday (the digital deluxe and call to arms DLC) and installed it.
When I started the game and wanted to play the campaing I discovered that all the flags/sheilds for all nations are black.

What the hell is the problem? Tried to reinstall but without luck...
Anyone got a tip or solution to the problem?

Cheers!

The black flags is a common issue relating to corrupted cache files.

Delete the "gfx" folder in your Paradox Documents folder.

There's a corrupted / missing stuff. If you delete it Steam will automatically recognise that something is actually missing this time. (It should before but *shrug*)

Delete the GFX folder in the location the guy describes.
If your PC is caled Paladiner it'd likely be in C:\Users\Paladiner\Documents\Paradox Interactive\Europa Universalis IV
