With the anticipated remake of Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic on the impending horizon, re-visitation has been imminent. The thought of reliving this beloved title has left many craving for the upcoming release. To satisfy that craving, some have fled to replaying the game with an interest to implement cheats into the gameplay. Here’s how you can unlock and use cheat codes in Star Wars: KOTOR.
Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic Console Commands
In order to use the console commands for the game, you must manually enable their functionality into the game. In other words, you need to go into the game’s system files. Assuming that you purchased the game through Steam, follow these steps. Find your game within whichever drive you have Steam installed. Locate KOTOR by following C:\[your game directory]\Steam\steamapps\common\swkotor.
Open the swkotor.ini file to initiate a Notepad displaying the game’s various options. Head toward the [Game Options] section. Add a space after [Game Options] where you will then add “EnableCheats=1” to the list. Once you have that typed in, save the file. After that, you’ll be set; go into your game and use the tilde key to instigate the console commands.
