Troubles Launching the Mod?

A lot of users have been experiencing trouble with the new HoI4 launcher, getting messages like "no descriptor file", being told the mod is for an outdated HoI4 version (1.8), or outright being unable to select the mod to play. This is a launcher issue and not a Kaiserreich issue. Go here for some troubleshooting tips: https://kaiserreich.fandom.com/wiki/Troubleshooting_the_HOI4_Launcher

@Willem Despite the launcher saying "please contact the author of this mod", it's not a mod issue. It's a launcher issue. You can look here for advice on how to fix it: https://kaiserreich.fandom.com/wiki/Troubleshooting_the_HOI4_Launcher -- when I had my "no descriptor file" issue, it took doing a clean reinstall to fix it.

@Ze Kaiserreich There's a rework for the Philippines underway, but there's no ETA yet for its completion. We're all volunteers, so the speed of reworks depends on our free time.
