Quick Overview

The verify_loc command in Europa Universalis IV is used to verify the localization keys in the game.

Localization keys are used to display text in different languages supported by the game. When you use the verify_loc command, the game checks all the localization keys to ensure they are working properly.

If there are any keys that are not localized or not working as intended, these are written to the error.log file for the user or developer to review and address.

In-Depth Description

The command verify_loc in Europa Universalis IV (EU4) is a debugging command or cheat used to verify the game's localization keys. Localization keys are essentially the pieces of text you see throughout the game - dialogues, tooltips, event descriptions, menu text etc.

When the verify_loc command is run, the game checks to ensure that all text strings are correctly linked to their respective localization keys.

If there are any unlocalized keys (text strings without a properly assigned localization key), they are written to an error log file. This can be useful to developers or modders aims to determine if any parts of their game or mod are not localized correctly.

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 .
