Looking for Dragon Age: Origins cheat codes for the PC version of the game? Below you will find a list of the console command cheat codes for this epic RPG from developer BioWare.
In order to enable the cheat codes console, you must do the following steps. Skip to #9 if you’re using Steam to play the game.
1. Make a shortcut to your desktop of “daorigins.exe” (Dragon Age/bin_ship/daorigins.exe). Note: use the .exe that is found in the “/bin_ship/” folder, because multiple wrong daorigins.exe are in the parent folder.
2. Bring up shortcut properties.
3. Under “Target” add the following: -enabledeveloperconsole (after — “daorigins.exe” ).
It will say target invalid unless you put a space between “-enabledeveloperconsole” and “C:\Program Files (x86)\Dragon Age\Bin_ship\daorigins.exe”.
4. Now go into the keybindings.ini file, which should be located in “My Documents\BioWare\Dragon Age\Settings\”.
5. Find the line “OpenConsole_0=Keyboard::Button_X” (GRAVE is default, change X to any button that is not already used in the game.)
6. Save the file.
7. Start the game with the shortcut you created on your desktop (daorigins.exe – shortcut).
8. In-game, you press the key that you have chosen and then type any of the codes below.
9. To enable the cheat codes console in the Steam version, right click on the game icon (in Steam), and select “properties”. Then click “Set Launch Options”. Finally enter “-enabledeveloperconsole” into the box and hit OK. Once you’ve loaded your last save, hit the “~” tilde button on your keyboard, and then type any of the codes below.

Warning: While most of these codes work fine. The developers of the game have pointed out that this is a dev panel and as a result using some of the commands may break your current save game, so it’s best to back it up before you try anything. Reader Cgoodno suggests staying away from immortal, addparty, ai off, killallhostiles, chargen, zz_pre_demo2, zz_pre_strategy, and similar commands.
