Hungary is already an interesting country, as it has a lot of room for expansion, and even some historical struggles, that defined the nation's diplomacy in the years of the war. The main focus of this mod is adding more flavor to the country, primarily with the new focus tree. The political branch allows for either a revisionist policy (which focuses on restoring old territory), or an ideological shift, which enables a democratic, or communist Hungary, each with its own decisions to make. Following the revisionist branch presents opportunities to reform Austria-Hungary, demand former territories of the realm, and even develop the newly acquired lands.

Latest changes

For detailed version history, check the file descriptions.

v 4.2.0

  • Some tank variants have new icons.
  • Sobrance is now part of a supply zone, and the Czechoslovakia strategic region.
  • The flag of the Kádár administration (with the Kádár crest) is now properly loaded, once the focus is completed.
  • Artillery icons should now no longer show up as generic black outlines.
  • Descriptions and icons of some planes and tanks have been updated.
  • Italy is now notified, if Hungary honors/dishonors the terms of the Adriatic Initaitive.
  • A whole new branch of focuses have been added, which handle the various orders of battle, and armament plans of Hungary/Austria-Hungary. The Árpád-Line focuses have also been moved under this branch, and have been extended somewhat. - courtesy of warchief1978
  • The communist branch has been expanded, enabling, amongst other things, the formation of the Warsaw Pact, by spreading communism in Poland, and inviting them into the Comintern.
  • The liberal branch has been expanded, and it now has access to some king-election focuses that were exclusive to the conservative branch before.
  • The king-election branch has been detached from the conservative branch, and has received some new options.
    • The branch is now available after completing either the "Liberal Ideas", "Hungarist Ideas" or "Maintain Conservative Government" focuses.
    • The ideology chosen will limit which candidates can be chosen as king.
    • The focus "Dismantle The Monarchy" has been slightly reworked: The focus will turn Hungary into a republic, and is only available to non-aligned, or democratic ideologies.
  • Hungary now starts with the national spirit "A Kingdom Without a King", which gives a slight reduction to national unity. The national spirit can be removed in various ways (eg. electing a king, or officially dismantling the monarchy)
  • New focus on the aviation branch: "The Aeronautics Institute": grants a research bonus for aircraft models, and some air experience.
  • The leader of democratic Hungary (Endre Bajcsy-Zsilinszky) now has the traits "Anti communist" and "Anti fascist".
  • Some missing trigger tooltip localisations were fixed in the Hungarian version.
  • For purposes of unambiguity, the focus "Restore The Monarchy" was renamed to "Restore the Austro-Hungarian Monarchy" (this is only affects the English version, the Hungarian version was already unambiguous).
  • It is now possible to start the "Demand Slovakia" focus, even if Carpathian Ukraine / Ruthenia is a Czechoslovakian puppet.
  • The national spirit given by the focus "Military Land Survey" now impacts max planning instead of planning speed. - New focus on the Revisionist branch: "Budapest Research Group". The focus creates a research group for the New Central Powers faction.
  • The Austro-Hungarian focus branch has been expanded with two focuses, that lead to a monarchist coup in Germany, restoring the German Empire. (focus pictures courtesy of the Wolferos team)

Known Issues

Piece of advice:
The mod is under continuous development, and I don't have the capacity to thoroughly test every single feature. Bug reports are therefore much appreciated, as they help me in finding all the flaws that were left in during development. Also, if you are playing with the mod enabled, consider making frequent saves, to prevent bugs from potentially ruining your campaign.

  • Some people experience issues with the focus tree, mostly reporting that the focuses are "tangled up", making the whole tree a mess. I have not been able to replicate the issue yet, but as soon as I find out what might cause it, I'll get on to fixing it.
  • Some people have reported, that the event warning them about the British decree against Hungarian expansion is not showing up (this is supposed to happen if you keep aggressively grabbing territory through national focuses). I have not managed to replicate the issue yet, so any feedback is appreciated.
  • Some people have reported, that the referendum for Burgenland does not work. I have (yet again) been unable to replicate the issue. Any input is welcome.

If you detect an issue, that has not yet been reported, consider disabling any other mods, reinstalling the game, then reinstalling the mod, and starting a new game before reporting it. Many problems are solved by starting with a clean slate. If you really want to make sure that the issue is with the mod, and not your installation, also delete everything non-essential from the User folder (Documents/Users/[Username]/Paradox Interactive/Hearts of Iron IV/). Save games and mods can stay, the rest will be regenerated when you start the game again.


As of v4.0.0, the mod is compatible with v1.4.0 (Oak) of the base game
The detailed compatibility description has been migrated to the readme file, to conserve space on this page.

Szia! a mod kiváló viszont találtam egy bugot miszerint Kádár portré nélkül van miután miniszterelnökké választom

Reply Good karma Bad karma+2 votes


Lenne egy javaslatom, amikor Horty Hitlerrel tárgyalt Hitler megkérte hogy vegyen rész a csehszlóvákia ellen történő fegyveres fellépésben és meg kapjuk egész felvidéket, de Horty visszautasította a magya hadsereg kicsínységére hivatkozva.

Jó lenne egy event 1938 körűl erre hogy akarunk vagy nem

A Horthy-Hitler tárgyalásra elvileg már van egy event a modban, ami aközben jön fel, hogy a németek csinálják a Csehszlovákiát feldaraboló fókuszt.

A mod egyre jobb és jobb.
De sajnos találtam egy bug-ot az angol király focus-t befejezi ugyan csak nem valasztja ki a játék.

Tudnád részletezni ezt a hibát? Pontosan mit jelent az, hogy nem választja ki a játék? Nem kapod meg az angol királyt mint national spirit?

Reply Good karma+2 votes

Igen nem kapom meg national spirit-ként csak hagy egy üres helyet ahol a kiraly fotója lenne. Meg event pop-up sincsen ahol kiírna ,hogy megkoronázták vagy valami.

Úgy tűnik megkapja a játékos a modifier-t csak lemaradt az icon a national spirits mappában.
