Need help fixing the General Error for a Settings.formatVersion issue? I’ve got you covered!
As of launch day, I encoutered the pictured issue in the Paradox launcher:
Thankfully the launcher settings are easy to find, and as JSON, is easily editable by any text editor!
- Right-click on Victoria 3 in your steam library. Find and click “Browse local files”.
- You should see a window open to your local Victoria 3 installation. Open the “launcher” folder.
- Open “launcher-settings.json” with any basic text editor (not Word!).
- Find the “formatVersion” value, which should be at the top. It was “1.1” for me; change it to just “1” (sans quotes).
- Relaunch, and you should be good!
I hope this helps!
