pyparadox 0.1.2

PyParadox is a *nix launcher for Paradox games.

Latest Version: 0.3.5

PyParadox is a *nix launcher for Paradox games. It requires PySide (Qt) installed separately. It aims to replace the stock launcher of cross-platform Paradox games, and tries to maintain compatibility with primarily Linux and OS X, and secondarily Windows.


  • Cross-platform: Linux, OS X and Windows.
  • Cross-python: Support Python 2.7 and 3.4. Other versions of Python may work, but they’re not specifically tested.
  • Games: PyParadox supports all cross-platform grand strategy games of Paradox Interactive that use the Clausewitz engine. To date, these include:
    • Crusader Kings II
    • Europa Universalis IV
  • Steam: PyParadox can be started from Steam when starting up the game, and all Steam integration should work just fine. This does, however, require a minor configuration inside Steam to make sure that PyParadox is used instead of the stock launcher.

Linux (Kubuntu)
