For some reason i can't open my game with my Ironman save, it simply does not start when i click to open on Steam. I can open the game without the save and i don't use mods.
The realm rejoices as Paradox Interactive announces the launch of Crusader Kings III, the latest entry in the publisher’s grand strategy role-playing game franchise. Advisors may now jockey for positions of influence and adversaries should save their schemes for another day, because on this day Crusader Kings III can be purchased on Steam, the Paradox Store, and other major online retailers.
I'm not sure I understand, as there is no option in Steam to load any save game. That only happens either in the game's launcher or within the game itself. What do you see in those two places?it simply does not start when i click to open on Steam.
I mean when i click the 'play' button on Steam, it opens a white screen like if it was about to open the launcher and it crashes without any error message.I'm not sure I understand, as there is no option in Steam to load any save game.

And did you have any problem when you last played that campaign?
Well, i did everything listed here and it doesn't work. As i said, the game runs perfectly without the said ironman save, when i add it back the game does what i said before (crash).I see, so this may be nothing to do with your Ironman save.
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 Interactive/CK2 folders
In particular make sure there are no files or folders left under either the Steam CK2 or Documents CK2 locations, before installing again.
- 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 BEFORE restoring the save game files - does the game start up now?
No, i quick saved and left the game normally, and i didn't had any problem with the game in that campaign excluding this last one.Ah, so just having the save in your /save games/ folder causes this, is that right? If so I can only guess it must be massively corrupted. Did you have a game or computer crash while playing perhaps?
I appreciate your support, even if it didn't solved my problem, and i already accepted that my save went to limbo. Thank you!I don't recall any previous case like that, the save must be really corrupted! I have no explanation how it got like that if there was no game or computer crash, it is certainly not a known issue with this game.
All I can suggest is, just before or after a play session, you make a copy of your Ironman save file so if this were to happen again you could revert to that.
My apologies for the problem, regardless of what caused it!
