the oldest patch or two were removed. they explained that less than a hundred people were using them.
As one of those few players, I'm sorry to hear that they removed roughly 5 patches. Thanks for your help.
To clarify, they were requested to do so by Steam as they will only support so many "beta" entries in the Betas tab of any one game. So they picked the versions with the lowest user counts.

This means that others will probably have to go as new releases come out.

i did what was instructed but it dosent show me the versions im looking for

im looking for 1.10.4
As mentioned before not every version exists, as there is a limit of how many can be provided
and some versions get the cut when not used that much.
What game is that for ?

With HOI4 only 1.10.5 is provided, then older ones from 1.9.3 back. If you have a mod that requires 1.10.4 it will need to be updated by its author to work with later game versions.

Those codes are only necessary for game versions more than about 2 years old, before GDPR.

I understand (but don't like) the point that Steam will only support so many versions. But is there no option to download the removed older beta versions directly from Paradox, and run them outside of Steam? I'm looking for the older versions of EUIV that seem to have been removed in the last year.

No, there is no option to do that, I am sorry.
