For players delving into the challenging world of “Dragon Age: Inquisition” (DAI), finding ways to ease the journey can be a part of the adventure. Unlike its predecessors, DAI does not support traditional console commands directly through the game console. This feature offered players shortcuts and modifications to enhance gameplay or simply have fun with the game’s mechanics. This shift left many wondering how they could still gain an edge in the game without the direct cheat codes available in previous Dragon Age titles.
Console Commands Workaround
Initially, players found a workaround by modifying the game’s executable file to enable developer console access. This method involved adding “-enabledeveloperconsole” to the end of the target field in the properties of the DragonAgeInquisition.exe file. However, updates to the game have since patched this exploit, making it a relic of the past. Despite this, the method remains viable for older game installations, activating various cheats such as God Mode, attribute buffs, and even instant kills.
- Navigate to C:\Program Files (x86)\Origin Games\Dragon Age Inquisition\.
- Right-click DragonAgeInquition.exe and select Properties.
- Add -enabledeveloperconsole to the end of the Target field. It should read C:\Program Files (x86)\Origin Games\Dragon Age Inquisition\DragonAgeInquisition.exe -enabledeveloperconsole.
- Click Ok.
- Press the ~ (tilde) key in-game to enter the developer console.
