Anyone know how to do this on the Android tablet device? I'm using an LG one BTW.

Toshi: Yes, but if you want to use the enhancements via the dosboxULTIMA7.conf file you're going to need to a type a bunch more line commands. This isn't practical every time you play. Exult handles all that for you, plus the cheat menu is built into the app.

theranmafan: I downloaded the latest version (on 17 Sep 2016) and am encountering the crash error. I edited dosboxULTIMA7.conf to disable the memory managers etc. but it's still crashing on Journey Onwards. Anyone else have any ideas? I do dearly love my QOL hacks. :P

Edit: I figured out how to run Black Gate with cheats on the GOG wrapper! The key element is to basically run the final 'ultima7.com ABCD ' line by hand. Here's how I did mine (back up all conf files of course!):

1) Edit the desktop shortcut. Remove all arguments outside the quotes (so it doesn't close the window after executing). It should look something like

C:\Games\Ultima7\DOSBOX\DOSBox.exe -conf "..\dosboxULTIMA7.conf" -conf "..\dosboxULTIMA7_single.conf"

2) Edit dosboxULTIMA7_single.conf (in notepad)
2a) Strip it down to:
[autoexec]
mount C: [your ultima 7 installation destination. I recommend not using spaces when installing.]
C:
@echo Run Ultima 7 by hand for cheats!

Then I just type in command with the cheat argument and it works!
This worked! I had to make some tweaks to get it to run. I was able to copy the desktop shortcut so I have a shortcut for vanilla U7, and cheatified U7. I made a copy of the file dosboxULTIMA7_single.conf and named it dosboxULTIMA7_single_cheats.conf . I had the new shortcut point to it:

"C:\GOG\Ultima7\DOSBOX\DOSBox.exe -conf "..\dosboxULTIMA7.conf" -conf "..\dosboxULTIMA7_single_cheats.conf"

As per step 2a above, my dosboxULTIMA7_single_cheats.conf looks like this:

[autoexec]
mount C C:\GOG\Ultima7\
C:
@echo Run Ultima 7 with cheats with ULTIMA7 ABCDalt255

Thanks for the tip, and I hope this helps others
Another thing you could try if you're having trouble typing that character:

1. Create the shortcut (or batch file), but use a different character instead of the one you can't type. (For example, you could use "u7.exe ABCDE".)

2. Open the shortcut (or batch file) in a hex editor.

3. Change the replacement character (in my example an "E", or 65 hex) with hex FF.

This should work.
There's no need to butcher your .conf file and manually type in ultima7.com ABCDalt255. Edit the .conf with Windows Notepad and copy and paste ABCDÿ after ultima7.com (like this ultima7.com ABCDÿ). The ÿ is hex FF.

THANX! I had the problem inside cube generator, when crossing first bridge cashes the game. Only solution was to get the debugmode and "teleport" Avatar to final platform. Adding lines to dosbox config or making a batch file didn't work and finally your metod was an answer :D
