How to convert save to EU4 with converter?
I preordered EU4 and my game says it has the converter DLC, but i've no idea how to convert anything. Where do I go to do this?

Start CK2 >Load save > Press esc > Export game

The Export button is greyed out for me, even though I have both EU4 and the converter installed. Any ideas?

Same for me, the steam store says I have the converter, but in the game the button is greyed out.

Ok, I fixed mine; maybe this will work for others. I had to right click on my game and go to properties. Then choose: verify integrity of game cache. At the end of the scan it said one item couldn't be verified and would be reacquired. It then re-downloaded the converter and when I loaded my game up the button wasn't greyed out anymore.

im not recieving a luancher in EU 4 so i cant load any mods, how do i get the option of getting a laucher or how to i make the mods active?im using a mac, is the fact that the launcher is and exe might be a problem.

Did you all restart steam since EU4 was released?

I converted the save file but i don't know how to get it into EU4 is it supposed to automatically go in?

@Linco, Open the EUIV launcher, there will be a mod that says converted_<country>_<date>. Check that.

Try going into the game files on steam and double clicking on eu4_launch. This should boot up the launcher.

thats the issue, the launcher is a .exe file which isnt mac compatible, which is different to the launcher for ck2 which i belive is a .dos or dmg when downloaded on mac, i think its something that will have to be patched by the developers.

Ah, sorry, didn't realize you were on mac. This is what I found on the tech support forums on Paradox for mac users:

"There's no launcher for the mac version yet I gather, so the only way to do it is to right click the game in your library, go to properties, in the general tab go to set launch options and type:
-mod=mod/InsertFileName.mod "

Hope it helps.
