I can't find a tutorial on to do it. There is no "settings" folder?

There are a couple of ways you can. The easiest way is to right click on your desktop shortcut, go to the properties tab, then add -enabledevelperconsole in the target box.

The other way is to go to the "data" folder in the main dragon age install directory and open the "DAOriginsLauncher.xml" file.

Replace line 180 with
<true action="execute" file="${BINARIES_DIR}\DAOrigins.exe" arguments="-enabledeveloperconsole;" path="${BINARIES_DIR}" autoquit="true" />

After that you must go into the keybindings.ini file usually located in "My Documents\BioWare\Dragon Age\Settings\" Find the line "OpenConsole_0=Keyboard::Button_GRAVE" (change GRAVE to any key not used in the game.)

I have "doctored" the short cut AND the "DAOriginsLauncher.xml" file.
And in the "keybindings.ini file" I changed the word "GRAVE" to just the letter "y".

And once in the game i can open the console and type"y".... BUT .... when I then press enter I get an error message that says the function is not recognised .... nor can I close the console OR exit the game.

Can you please assist ??

I am not technically gifted and will need clear and simple instructions, please.

Thanks.

Hey man, i'm here. I got it to working and will explain how.

First, you don't have to change your key. Or alter those lines. I don't know why it was suggested, but it is bullshit.

I take it you have the mod for console visibility installed. If not, do that.

I also suggest to reverse the changes you made.

All you need is:

A shortcut with -enabledeveloperconsole at the end (with one space from the last letter,
so: blablabla -enabledeveloperconsole

Just to check; have you made the shortcut directly from the exe file? not the shortcut gog gives you. Go into the directory and make a shortcut from the normal exe. Then apply the -enabledeveloperconsole to that.

This should work. I hope it does. I did it like this, with gog's ultimate edition and it worked. Laptop, windows 10. Let me know.

Confirmed. Adding the -enabledeveloperconsole to the text line in the Target box in "Properties"(right click shortcut) works, but only with the shortcut found in the bin_ship folder. The shortcut which works for me is the one with the blue Grey Warden griffon symbol on a golden kite shield, not the red dragon icon. For some reason, the red dragon icon shortcut is the one placed on the desktop during installation so at first I assumed it would work to add the extra text to the target box in "Properties" of the red dragon icon shortcut, but it only works with the blue griffon shield icon shortcut. At least that is how it worked with my machine.
