Quick Overview

The reloadinterface command in Europa Universalis IV (EU4) is a console command used to reload all elements of the game's user interface (UI).

This is typically used after making changes or modifications to the UI in order to apply those changes without having to restart the entire game.

It is particularly useful for developers and modders testing new interface elements or changes.

In-Depth Description

The command reloadinterface in Europa Universalis IV is a console command that refreshes and reloads the game's graphical user interface (GUI).

This command is very useful in situations where the game interface has graphical glitches, has become unresponsive or if elements of the interface are not displaying properly.

By reloading the interface, this command effectively forces the game to recalibrate and redraw all visual elements.

This includes menus, buttons, icons and panels, and even in-game elements such as map details and units.

Any temporary data being kept in the interface will be wiped, so it can also be useful for 'refreshing' the display of information.

Use of this command is appropriate any time you experience glitches or rendering issues with the interface, or simply when the display of information seems to be incorrect.

For instance, numbers in the interface that are not updating appropriately could be fixed by this command.

Keep in mind that this command doesn't affect the save files, game progress or game settings - it only refreshes the interface.

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 .
