Strategy game Hearts of Iron IV received several performance improvements and bug fixes in the recently updated game version, Avalanche 1.12.3.

Performance Improvements

There’s great news for players struggling with low VRAM. The developers applied tweaks so now only the required fonts to display the chosen game language are loaded to reduce the VRAM usage.

Bug Fix for the Italian

The developers fixed an issue where the Italian were able to build factories in states with no Italian control. Now, the Italian can only build in places they control as intended.
