Quick Overview

The reinitchat command in Europa Universalis IV is used to refresh or reset the in-game chat functionality. When this command is used, it posts a CChatSyncAllCommand, which is a technical term for synchronizing or updating all chat data in the game. This might be useful in cases where players are experiencing issues with the chat feature.

In-Depth Description

The reinitchat command in Europa Universalis IV (EU4) is used to reset or reinitialize the chat function of the game. This command posts a CChatSyncAllCommand to all connected players in multiplayer mode.

When used, it can resynchronize the in-game chat for all players involved. This might be particularly helpful in situations where there are issues with the multiplayer chat function, such as delays, synchronization errors or communication blocks. It's a troubleshooting tool to streamline communication between players in a multiplayer gaming session.

As for when to use it, the reinitchat command should be used when there are noticeable problems or difficulties with the in-game chat service amongst multiplayer members. If players are having trouble sending, viewing, or receiving messages, this command can refresh the entire chat service and fix the glitch. It's a 'reset' button for getting real-time chat running smoothly again in the game.

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 .
