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.
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.
