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 4.4.1

  • István Horthy now has the proper portrait, if he is the king.
  • Leader traits have been added for István Horthy, Victor Emmanuel, and Wilhelm von Hohenzollern (all possible successors of Horthy).

v 4.4.0

  • The mod is now compatible with the 1.5.4 version of the game.
  • Removed the victory point in Arad (Southern Partium), and added a victory point in Oradea (Northern Partium) instead.
  • A missing localisation for a technology bonus was added.
  • The focus "Polish-Hungarian Intelligence Exchange" now grants a small bonus to decryption technology for both Poland and Hungary.
  • Completing the "Renounce Claims Towards Croatia" decision while owning Croatian lands will now cede said lands to Croatia.
  • New decision available for Austria-Hungary: "Renounce Claims Towards Poland". The decision is available, if Poland exists, and owns any Polish lands, that are claimed by Austria-Hungary. Upon completion, the decision will remove Austro-Hungarian claims and cores from the Galician region, and cedes any held land in that area to Poland.
  • The focus "Wilson's 10th Point" now no longer requires the country to own land in the Galicia-Lodomeria region, if claims towards Poland have been renounced.
  • News events have been added for several (internationally significant) events, like territorial demands that are met, or the restoration of Austria-Hungary.
  • It now costs 50 political power for Romania to issue a counterdemand when Hungary demands Transylvania via the focus.
  • The focus "The Second Army" has now been converted into a decision. The decision shows up if the country is at war with the Societ Union.
  • Missing localisation has been added for the advisor Anna Kéthly.
  • New decision available for Austria-Hungary: "Reinstate Croatian Military Leaders". The decision shows up for Austria-Hungary, if they own the state of Croatia. Taking the decision requires some Croatian states to be owned core states of the country, and it awards 3 Croatian generals, and one admiral.
  • Austria can no longer join Nazi Germany via the democratic annexation event, when they are asked by a democratic/non-aligned Germany.
  • Austria now has a chance to refuse their democratic annexation by a non-aligned/democratic Germany. This chance is higher, if Austria is in a faction, and is practically 100%, if they are in a faction with Hungary.
  • When Croatia declares independence from Yugoslavia (after a German attack), they now properly get their territories, including Zagreb.
  • The decision to merge Slovakia and Carpathian Ruthenia now works as intended.
  • The decision to create Slovakia-Ruthenia now no longer shows up once it has already been completed.
  • Hungarian localisation was corrected at several places.
  • The Árpád-Line decisions now only set the fort level to 5 in provinces that have a fort level of 4 or less.
  • The "Remind The Germans Of The Glory Days" and "The Kaiser's Coup" focuses are now bypassed, if Germany has already completed the "Oppose Hitler" focus.
  • The time required to complete "The Kaiser's Coup" focus is now 140 days instead of 210 days.
  • For owners of the "Waking the Tiger" expansion, the focus "The Kaiser's Coup" now completes the German focus "Oppose Hitler", instead of starting the event chain introduced by the mod.
  • Most German focuses that are in the "Rhineland" branch, now require the country to be fascist. This way, if a fascist Germany gains access to the "Oppose Hitler" branch via the Kaiser's Coup, they won't also have access to the Rhineland branch.
  • The decisions to prepare each phase of the Győri Program now include a tooltip that explains what kind of bonuses that phase will give, once activated.
  • A unique portrait has been added for István Horthy, thanks to /u/CaptChetson.
  • Various equipment purchase decisions have been added. These decisions are unlocked by completing one of the following focuses: "Secret Rearmament", "Swedish License Trade", "German License Trade", "Soviet License Trade", "Allied License Trade" (each focus unlocks different decisions). The tooltips for the decisions only show the appropriate effect, if both Hungary, and the sending country have the relevant technology researched. Most of the purchases are based on historical deals, but in some cases (such as the equipment from the allies) credible alternatives were selected. Thanks to warchief1978 for all the research on these.
  • If Horthy is the head of state, and his succession is already settled, a new decision allows forcefully retiring him.
  • Various spelling and grammar errors were corrected in the technology and equipment descriptions (this mostly affects the English localisation).
  • If Yugoslavia owns any of their starting claims (Zara, Fiume, Istria, or Primorska) when Hungary completes the "Partition of Yugoslavia" focus, those territories will be included in the event chain.
  • The focus "Restore The Ausro-Hungarian Monarchy" is no longer available, if the country is Hungary-Poland.
  • The focus "Hungarian SS" now only shows up, if Germany is fascist.
  • The "Hungarian-Slovakian Small War" event can no longer trigger, if Slovakia/Chechoslovakia is a puppet of Hungary.

The following changes only affect the realistic version:

  • When completing the focus "Demand Transylvania", Romania can now issue a counterproposal, to only cede Northern Transylvania (the territories Hungary would get with the Second Vienna Award). The chances of this occurring are quite low.

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 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 v4.4.0, the mod is compatible with v1.5.4 (Cornflakes) of the base game.
The mod is not guaranteed to be compatible with any other mods.
The detailed compatibility description has been migrated to the readme file, to conserve space on this page.

Az új DLC megjelenéséig biztosan nem kerül ki új verzió a modból.

Valószinűleg egy darabig most nem lesz mod, mert mindenki a Man The Guns-ra vár, amiben már megint egy évnyi változás lesz.

Ki kéne venni Bukovinát a követelményekből, hogyha lemondunk a lengyel küvetelményekről. Kicsit hülyén néz ki Galícia nélkül.

Hi, the mod crashes on 1938 July 29th. I don't use any other mods.

I'm sorry to hear that. However, I can't seem to reproduce this issue. Several other people have had this problem, so it can't be unrelated to the mod. I'd try starting with a clean installation of the game, cleaning the user documents folder, and reinstalling the mod. It might help.

sziasztok !
Jó lenne ha megcsinálnátok hogy pl székelyföld az ne legyen román core tartomány hisz ott Magyar többség van, ugyan ez a helyzet Dél-Felvidékkel is ott is Magyar többség van az se legyen cseh core tartomány!

A játék alapvetően nem veszi figyelembe az egyes országok kezdőterületének nemzeti megoszlását. Tudtommal máshol sincsenek ilyen okokból magterületek megvonva (pl. Lengyelország kiindulásnak egy csomó ukrán, litván, fehérorosz területtel rendelkezik). Amíg az alapjátékban nincs erre precedens, addig a modban sem tervezek hasonlót.
