Some time ago, I installed the "The Rise of Islam"-mod, and the "The Beginning of the End"-mod. When I installed the "The Rise of Islam"-mod, De Jure started getting weird. The countries were also deformed. To solve that, I created the world without the mod, and activated the mod after the world had been created. It worked fine. Then I installed "The Beginning of the End"-mod. I deactivated the "The Rise of Islam"-mod, and things went smooth. However, I felt like playing a game without it later on. So I did what I normally did; I deactivated the "The Beginning of the End"-mod, and created a new world. But there was a problem; the map was all messed up


Tibet doesn't exist, nor does central-Africa, there are holes everywhere, etc

I then deleted all the files in the CK2 folder, and verified game integrity, yet it still doesn't work. Have I permanently destroyed my CK2 copy? Is there anything I can do?

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

- move any valued save games elsewhere
- "uninstall" in Steam-CK2
- manually delete both the Steam/SteamApps/common/CK2 AND Documents/Paradox/CK2 folders
- re-install game in Steam, run a Steam Verify when done.
- add ck2game.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 CK2 or Documents CK2 locations, before installing again.

That will do it for you!
