Dragon Age 2 PC Cheats

“I’ve got so many bruises now, they have names and families.”

I have had a few people ask me about the PC cheats for Dragon Age 2, and since I had to visit several different sites to figure it out, I thought I would do everyone a favor and post a full cheats list here.

Before you can use the cheats, though, you have to set up your game to accept the cheats.

Dragon Age 2 PC Cheats Set-Up (See specific instructions for Steam versions of the game below):

To do this, you are going to need to edit a game file. Before you edit it, though, be sure to create a back-up copy of the file.

  1. Open up the “KeyBindings.ini” file in the “Users[yourname]DocumentsBioWareDragon Age 2Settings” directory.
  2. Change the “Open_Console_0” line to read “OpenConsole_0=Keyboard::Button_F12”
  3. Save the file.
  4. There should be a shortcut to your game on the Desktop. If there isn’t, create one. Right-click on the short-cut icon and choose “Properties.”
  5. Choose the “Shortcut” tab if it isn’t already chosen.
  6. Under Target, add the following at the end of the line, AFTER the last quotation marks: -enabledeveloperconsole so that the Target looks something like this: “C:Program Files (x86)Dragon Age 2bin_shipDragonAge2.exe” -enabledeveloperconsole (Note: There is a space before the -enableddeveloperconsole line – do not eliminate that).

Dragon Age 2 PC Cheats Set-Up Using Steam

  1. Find the file “…Dragon Age 2/data/DragonAge2Launcher.xml” and open it in a text editor. Make a copy of this file for back-up before editing it.
  2. Find the following line:
    <condition name=”FirstRunCheck” type=”FileExist” file=”${USERDATA_DIR}SystemInformation.xml”>
    <true action=”execute” file=”${BINARIES_DIR}DragonAge2.exe” path=”${BINARIES_DIR}” autoquit=”true” />
  3. Change that last line to read:
    <true action=”execute” file=”${BINARIES_DIR}DragonAge2.exe” path=”${BINARIES_DIR}” autoquit=”true” arguments=”-enabledeveloperconsole” />
  4. Follow steps #1-3 from the standard PC set-up above (Editing the “KeyBindings.ini” file).

Please note that when you hit F12, the game will not let you know that anything is happening until after you have entered your cheats. So when you’re ready to cheat, hit F12 and then any of the following, followed by “enter.”
