You can tweak a number of validation settings by copying a text file from the SettingsFiles folder into the game directory or mod directory, and naming it ValidatorSettings.txt. Then just open it and modify. This is where many of the former settings got moved to.

Also, comment ignore is here! Simply put
Code:
# Audax Validator "." Ignore_XXXX
in front of the node causing the error that you want to ignore. XXXX is an error code, found in Information/errorCodes.txt. So far only a few errors are supported, so tell me which ones you really want to be able to ignore. For more information, see DidYouKnow.pdf, in the dowload.

If there is interest, a new version of the Validator will be released with bugfixes and so on. If you are not satisfied with the current final version, please download this and report any issues you find. Please do this by 1 September 2014. Note: I will try to fix reported bugs, but there is no guarantee that they will be fixed.

when i go into the validator, the game dropdown doesnt show any games, it's just a blank white box. Even when i entered the game path, nothing. It also says at the bottom "since there was a problem with initial loading, validation can not continue". It isnt letting me validate bc i havent selected a game but in the dropdown there are no games listed. I reinstalled twice but nothing has been resolved. What am i doing wrong?

Why does the validator find so many errors within the vanilla ck2 files (the ones that I haven't modified in my mod)? Should I do something about those errors?

What happened to this program? I used to use it all the time; I can't make Mods without it. Is there any sort of successor?
