Quick Overview

The timer command in Europa Universalis IV is a console command that displays debugging time information.

Debugging time information typically includes data that developers use to understand how long certain operations take within the game.

In-Depth Description

The timer command in Europa Universalis IV is essentially a diagnostic tool used to help debug the game.

When you type this command into the console, the game prints out a detailed report of timing information.

This command doesn't directly affect the gameplay or game strategy in any way but provides valuable insight into the game's performance.

This timing info includes how long different processes within the game are taking to execute.

It is extremely beneficial for developers and modders to identify potential issues related to game performance, such as problems with loading speed or resource demand.

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 .
