Baldur’s Gate: Enhanced Edition is a fantastic re-release of one of the original classic CRPGs based around Dungeons & Dragons. These enhanced ports from Beamdog have given the gameplay and visuals of the title a much-needed overhaul, not to mention making it possible to actually play them on any PC released after 2003. Having said that, the game is also incredibly unforgiving my modern standards, which is where console commands can come in.

If you’re struggling with the game, or just want to mess around and see what sort of fun you can have, console commands are there for you. These special commands will change the way that you experience the game completely, from giving you insane stats, to teleporting you around the map with the click of your mouse cursor. Check out the amazing console commands that we’ve found for you down below.

How to Enable the Console

So to make the console acceptable in the game you’re going to need to mess with some internal files, but don’t panic, it’s not that difficult. Head for your documents directory and find the Baldur’s Gate – Enhanced Edition folder. Inside, you’ll find a file called Baldur.lua, which you can open using the notepad. Once inside, copy the line below into the file on a new line. Once that’s done, you can open the console in-game by pressing Ctrl and Space together.
