I uninstalled Baldur's Gate from Program Files (x86) and reinstalled it into My Games directory under Local Disk (\C:). I opened Baldur.ini and placed the line Cheats=1 under the text document's postulate "[Game Options]" and ran the game. I still haven't moved anything from the previous GOG file to see if I could keep my saves, but I spose I really don't need them if I really wanted to overplay it.
Just as well, to finalize it: The process worked.
Console is available when UAC does not conflict with the GOG interface. I guess I'll take more time when they so much as mention the UAC saying, "Windows 7 users, be aware that UAC (User Account Control) might cause the GOG.com installer to launch with a slight delay (up to a few minutes). Larger files will cause a longer delay."
So for anybody else reading this: I'm the hard example that learned it for ya.
Thanks for all the help. I was skeptical about putting it in there just because it mainly holds newer games and emulators. Haha.
