Quick Overview

The CrashReporter.DeleteCrashData command in Europa Universalis IV (EU4) is used to remove local crash reports that are older than a specified number of days.

When you input this command, you would typically follow it with a numerical value that represents the age of the crash dumps you wish to erase. For instance, CrashReporter.DeleteCrashData 30 would delete all crash dumps that are more than 30 days old.

In-Depth Description

This command, CrashReporter.DeleteCrashData, is helpful in maintaining the performance and storage space of your local machine when you're playing Europa Universalis IV. When a game crashes or experiences other technical problems, it often generates files known as crash dumps. These files record the state of the system at the time of the crash, and developers use them to diagnose what caused the issue.

Using this command followed by a number (X) will instruct the game to automatically delete any crash dumps on your local machine that are older than X number of days.

For instance, if you type CrashReporter.DeleteCrashData 30, it will delete all crash dumps that are 30 days or older. This can free up hard drive space, especially if you're experiencing frequent crashes that can generate a sizable amount of data over time.

Using the command, however, it's not just about space saving. It can also be useful if you're troubleshooting repeated crashes and want to ensure that your data is up to date. Older crash data may confuse the troubleshooting process and make it harder to identify your current issues.

How to Open the Command Console

In EU4, cheats are executed from the command console, a text box that you type commands into.

To open the command console press the ~(tilde) key, which is typically located under ESC (escape).

If your keyboard does not have that key, or pressing ~ does not work, try the following keys:

  • ~
  • SHIFT + 2
  • SHIFT + 3
  • ALT + 2 + 1

Type your command into the console, and then press ENTER .
