How to prevent Europa Universalis IV from updating automatically!

  • Hey, Guest! We’re glad you are a part of the Paradox Community and want to know what you think about it. Please let us know by filling out this short survey. We appreciate it!
  • 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

Hi!
Some people are upset when they realize that stopping automatic updated in Steam's settings won't actually prevent the game from updating when you start it.

To properly prevent your installation from auto-updating, please do the following:
1. Right click Europa Universalis IV in your Steam library and select Properties
2. Go to the tab called "Local Files" and press the button saying "Browse local files"
3. You should now have your "...\steamapps\common\Europa Universalis IV" folder open on your computer
4. Move/copy the entire Europa Universalis IV folder (move up one step in your directory hierarchy) to anywhere but the the steamapps-folder on your computer
5. Start the game by using eu4.exe in the folder rather than through Steam

Your copy should now remain in it's current form forever! Please note that you should have your steam client running in the background (it can be in offline mode) for everything to be functioning properly!

Please note that the simpler solution is probably to roll your version back to the previous version by using the Steam beta system! We don't guarantee the patch level you want is supported forever however. The above steps is the only way to always keep it in an older patch level of your choice.

I hope this helps you!

EDIT! This works for all Paradox Development Studio games. Just replace the game name in the instructions!

Thanks, I wish all developers allowed this.. or that Steam did not try to force updates in the first place if you don't want them.

I'd like to know as well.
I'm not entirely sure to be honest. I think you can complete achievements that existed in 1.8. You will of course not be able to complete achievements added in 1.9 will running 1.8 however.

You can complete achievements on a new version, provided they existed in the version you started the game in. I'm not sure what happens if an extant achievement is changed, though, and I don't think you can get achievements while running an old version, because the checksum will differ from the current checksum.

I know this is "old", but stickied. But is there any new info on this? If I have something started in 1.9, and prevent the 1.10 update to finish out a couple of runs, will I still get achievements?

As the post direct above yours states, you can still get old Achievements with Ironman saves made before 1.10, but not new achievements.

Cool. The "and I don't think you can get achievements while running an old version, because the checksum will differ from the current checksum" threw me, but perhaps the crucial word "new" was left out on front of achievements.

So, when 1.10 comes out what we can do to get achievements in a current 1.9 game is download the new patch then rollback with the steam beta system, is that correct?

You say I can roll back using beta. I take it that I *COULD* use it for temporary holding off the patch until I complete the 1.9 savegame until then. Since I don't usually go back to savegames once reached the end of game so I'm not concerned about saving previous version permanently. Unless you would advise me doing the first method you suggested?

I'm not 100% sure of what you are saying here. But here are your options for ironman/Achievements::

- let Steam update to 1.10, and when you want to play your 1.09 Ironman games roll back to that in Steam first
- there are no other choices

The point is, to get achievements you MUST be online and MUST have Steam running.

So the initial post in this thread isn't to allow achievements to still work at an older level, it's just to allow EU4 to work at an older level?

I think there is confusion due to the two threads about what exactly each achieves, especially as the other one says rolling back 'may' allow achievements to work. Having it very clear about achievements would be wonderful as there is no going back once it's wrong! :)
