In-Depth Description

The CrashReporter.SimulateCrash is a debug command in Europa Universalis IV that simulates a crash of the game, which results in the game exiting. This command doesn't have any gameplay benefits; instead, it's used for testing and debugging purposes.

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 .
