Fixing "General Error" for Settings.formatVersion
Thankfully the launcher settings are easy to find, and as JSON, is easily editable by any text editor!

The FIX

1. Right-click on Victoria 3 in your steam library. Find and click “Browse local files”.
2. You should see a window open to your local Victoria 3 installation. Open the “launcher” folder.
3. Open “launcher-settings.json” with any basic text editor (not Word!).
4. Find the “formatVersion” value, which should be at the top. It was “1.1” for me; change it to just “1” (sans quotes).
5. Relaunch, and you should be good!

We hope this helps!
