  • Crusader Kings III Available Now!

    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.


    Real Strategy Requires Cunning

So does this mean that Stellaris is now "Forked"? I use a variety of mods from Steam Workshop, and I really, ***really*** don't want to go back to manually installing - nor do I have any interest in MP. But if Steam-version development now ceases at 1.6.2... or perhaps worse, if the code is now going to be split, there'll be problems for me and many others.

The Steam and Paradox Launcher versions would have to be 1:1 as far as version number beyond 1.7.x. (1.7.x is currently a beta on Steam)

Otherwise they've really shit the bed and are just remaking the hellscape that was pre-steam PDS games.

I don't get this. What is the point of having two versions of the game? I still remember when Paradox pulled out of having two versions of CK2. Back then they wrote essays on why there should be only one and now they are going back to having two versions?

The launcher, for the moment, should only find Stellaris, if you either bought it on paradoxplaza.com, or if you've bought it on Steam and have connected your Paradox account to your Steam account. I can't say when or if we'll be moving other games, although I expect it will happen for at least a few of them some time in the foreseeable future. Stay tuned!

Figured out why the Launcher wouldn't work. RivaTuner apparently doesn't play nice with .Net applications, so Bootstrapper.exe had to be added to it and detection level set to none.

Now, the Launcher finds Stellaris, but claims I don't own it when I try to install.

Are the Stellaris DLCs supported? Stellaris installed and patched properly for me but the DLCs keeps saying "could not download installation".

It is, yes :)

I can't see an obvious reason for that. If the launcher is requesting elevation (ie, admin access) to install the game, I recommend you try running the launcher with admin access from the beginning (by right clicking on the shortcut and selecting "Run as an administrator" or something similar), as there could be some problem with how the launcher gets admin access.

(we're hoping to fix any issues in the future :) )

I had this problem, I think checking Remember Me and logging in, then restarting, fixed it. Or it was a total coincidence.

There's a couple of debug logs you can submit (they can inform you once you contact them), depending on how much time you want to spend, and you can also give them a more detailed account of what you do leading up to the problem.
