Console command codes

If you’d like more skill points or a higher companion approval rating, you can enter command codes that will open these and other cheats up to you. There’s nowhere within the game to input this information so you have to play around with some settings on your desk top. The first thing to do is make a shortcut on your desktop of the “daorigins.exe” file. Then go into that shortcut and under “Target add” –enabledeveloperconsole after “daorigins.exe”. Next go into “My Documents\BioWare\Dragon Age\Settings\”, select the line “OpenConsole_0=Keyboard::Button_X” and then change “X” to any button you want that’s not already used in the game. Save this file and then open the game through your new desktop icon. Now during gameplay press the button you’ve chosen and then input one of the following codes.
