I've found out how to open the console, but when I input debug_dumpevents, it tells me, in red text, that the command is only for developers.

So how can I access the list of events, such as you see scrolling along in the events window in the bottom of the page? I would like to keep record of the historical progression, and I would assume this data is being saved somewhere.


To be able to use this command, you have to launch the game with the following parameters :

-debug -debugscripts

In Steam, you can right-click on the game, select "Set launch options" and enter that here.

    Since they all use the Clausewitz engine, I imagine that this answer applies to HoI3(and probably 4 when it comes out), EU 3 and 4, and Victoria II as well. I'm sure I'm missing some one-off games as well with the engine. – Tarkenfire Aug 7 '15 at 13:40
