Forgive me if it was asked before, but is Byzantine Empire supposed start off with feudal rather than imperial government? Or is it a bug?

That happens only if you run the mod with SWMH but without EMF, I believe.

I'm in dire need of help. I tried messing around with the files of HIP to merge it with the Better Slavic Pagan Mod, and it worked for the most part, but some of the flags got messed up (like the Kingdom of Ireland had the Duchy of Ulster flag, and the HRE having the flag of austria). I tried reinstalling HIP three times but it's still wrong.

Have You deleted all the modules and HIP folder (the one in mod directory, not above it)?

What's it like playing Byzantine in this? Is it hard to beat the arabs?

If You reach the Arabs, then You're pretty fine already, as it means that You necessarily have succeeded in dealing with the really difficult part, which is beating the Turks first and going all the way to at least Antioch.
If You mean the Ottos though-it's harder than in vanilla. Substantially.

Is there any way I can disable how this mod keeps randomizing the pagan flags? and just have each title for them have a set flag like in vanilla? because it's SUPER annoying for me to see them keep getting flipped around and shit.

Install HIP without the ARKOPackArmoiries.

Hey, probably been asked and answered: Tiger Hunts have been removed ? Also neither Muslims, Hindus and Buddhists can hunt with the Hunting focus ? Any reason as to why ?

Not sure if this is the place to post "suggestions", but if someone hasn't suggested it already, I would highly suggest adding the Parthenon as a wonder for Athenei/Athens county. Mechanically, it would work the same as a Great Cathedral/Great Mosque/Great Temple, just with a unique image/skin, ideally resembling what it looked like intact, as it has only been in ruins since 1687, well after the end of CK2's timeframe, though a modern "ruined" picture would also work for the "damaged" wonder status.

As the building was in use as a Christian church from from around 590 AD until the 1450s/1460s, which covers CK2's entire timeframe, the building should function as a "Great Cathedral" for all of the start dates/game starts, though with an option to convert it either back into a Hellenic temple if the owner is Hellenic, or into a mosque, as the Ottomans did so historically after 1456.

"Turkish poet Evliya Celebi expressed marvel at the Parthenon and figuratively described the building as "like some impregnable fortress not made by human hands". He composed a poetic supplication that it, as a "work less of human hands than of Heaven itself, should remain standing for all time"."

Quick question:
I'd like to make a few small changes to the files, but I don't know what Notepad ++ language to use. Any advice?

You mean like programming language? AFAIK, the files use their own system, so just straight up edit. Brackets still light up and stuff

Is there any way out when you have too many loans to pay off?

I'm a count with 2.5 gold per month, -800 wealth, and max loans. I can't see it getting paid off.

I haven't played HIP in some time, am coming back to it after a 2 year absence. I just installed the latest Frosty2 and was checking some of the files, when I noticed that Frosty2 does not have a "01_artifacts_books.txt" file in common/artifacts, although the vanilla game does have this file.

Does this mean that with HIP you can no longer create any Magnum Opus books or gain any book artifacts at all? I really enjoyed all of the book artifacts, so can I just place the 01_artifacts_books.txt from vanilla into the common/artifacts folder inside HIP and play with them again?

I really liked all of the mystical/occult aspects of the game, even though I know they're not historical.

I cannot help but write some comments/complaints/suggestions about Inaccuracy of Bohemia in the iron century start...
-independent Moravia as a full duchy.... while the Premyslids did not have full control over the entire area they held some influence, enough so that Boleslav I felt obliged enough to defend it against Hungarian raid later freely expand into Silesia and all the way to Krakow, which would suggest that at least north Moravia was under control. Either way, after the fall of Great Moravia it certainly was not unified duchy, but more propably a bufferzone of small local rulers under the influence of Premyslids
-Boleslav paying tribute to Germany.... After killing his brother saint Wenceslaus in 935, stoping paying the tribute was one of the first things he did as a new duke, he even went to war with germany from 935 to 950 because of it (reminder that startdate is 936)
-if you are going to make Vok the father of Slavnik, then give him Hradec (c_hradec) province and viceversa in viking startdate give Sobeslav the Kladsko (c_boleslav) province and give those provinces to Slavnik upon Voks death in history files and pass them both as one till the slaughter of slavnikids
EDIT I moved one part that was here to other message since its too long
936.1.1 = {
liege = d_bohemia
holder = 168358 # Vok Slavnik
}
968.1.1={
liege = d_bohemia
holder = 168360 # Slavnik Slavnik
}
981.3.18 = {
liege = d_bohemia
holder = 168363 # Sobeslav Slavnik
}
995.9.28 = {
holder = 510 # Boleslau II storms Libice and slaughters most of the Slavnik family. Effectively exiling Sobeslav, because he was abroad campaigning with Boleslaw the Brave
}
bonus assumption, I think you might have considered adding Boleslav before but added Kladsko instead but already had the province related things done so you just reused it which is why Kladsko is c_boleslav, is my assumption correct?
