If you see An critical error occured while patching game! warning after starting the game you need to close the game and Steam client completely then start Steam and the game in that order.

If you run the game before Steam client (e.g. using game shortcut) Steam client will interrupt patching and the mod won't work until you restart Steam.

Temporary solution: Always run Steam client first before you run the game.
If doesn't helped add a comment with a link to the logs zip archive you can create using button in FPS Booster options

This mod works as intended with FPS booster, despite a weird "green screen of death" that triggered on my windows 11 insider build after enabling the mod initially, but I've gotten it before with trash windows updates so yeah, thank microsoft for that one.

Anyways, thanks.

Working fine for me with Linux.

can someone help me understand what this mod does? Too many mods nowadays just put a bunch of updates, not what the thing actually does

When I activate this mod, my buildings disappear when I zoom in. When I zoom out all is back. If deactivate the mod all runs normal. Is it conflicting with some other mod?
FPS booster and this mod are up date, so are all the other mods I use.

@Arathaen did you enable the mod in-game before changing launcher config?

I am having difficulties with this mod-- When I follow instructions (change path to ../../../, then I hit play from Steam, it does launch paradox game launcher and play/resume buttons are green. However when I hit play, the game simply does not load.

@Spoderman you have to unsubscribe also other mods which use it, e.g.: FPS Booster and Load Order Mod otherwise they will download it again because they can't work correctly without this mod and most of the time users forget about a dependency mod.
Spoderman Sep 15 @ 12:40pm 
Yo I unsubbed this and now I cant run the game it literally says Patch loader mod was installed please re open the game again. And it just subs to the mod by itself. I dont know what to doo man help

@boowilkes could you share an ouput_log.txt(Windows) or Player.log(linux/MacOs)? I can handle that, but there must be something that confused compatibility report tool.

Hi, Just to say that I found this in my Compatibility Report report;
[Note the recommendation to unsubscribe- yet I use FPS Booster and Load Order Mod (from your 23 Aug @ 7:23pm comment) and maybe more that depend on this]
You may want to notify them of this?

Anyway, thanks! :)

Unsubscribe this. It is only needed for mods you don't have, and it doesn't provide any functionality on its own.
This is compatible with the current game version.
Always run the Steam client before you run the game.
On Linux and MacOS some user action is required, see the installation guide:"
