Quick Overview

The nopausetext command in Europa Universalis IV is used to toggle the pause notification on and off.

This is particularly useful when you want to take screenshots of the game without the pause banner obscuring a part of your view.

When you apply this command, it removes Game Paused text from the game's screen.

In-Depth Description

The nopausetext is a console command in Europa Universalis IV game that is primarily used for taking cleaner screenshots while playing the game. This command will remove, or toggle off, the pause banner that appears on the screen when the game is paused.

By default, whenever you pause the game, a banner appears across the top of the screen indicating that the game is on pause.

While this feature is understandable from a gameplay perspective, the banner can get in the way when you're trying to take a screenshot of the game for sharing or for keeping personal memories.

Activating this nopausetext command essentially removes the pause banner allowing you to take unobstructed screenshots that display the game environment and other elements without any interruption.

It renders the game's graphics and details more visibly with the complete view of your game screen, which makes the screenshots more appealing.

To use this command, you simply have to type nopausetext into the console command box.

After you've taken your screenshot, you can toggle the pause banner back on (if you wish) by typing the same command again into the console command box.

You should consider using the nopausetext command whenever you want to take a high-quality screenshot of the game screen while it is paused.

Remember to turn the pause banner back on after you're done, especially if you're used to seeing the banner as an indicator that the game is paused.

How to Open the Command Console

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

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

  • ~
  • SHIFT + 2

  • ALT + 2 + 1

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