I have read that there is a developer console in Torchlight II, but can't find how to enable it - there doesn't appear to be a keybind for it that I can see in the game options.

Is this something that needs to be enabled with a command line parameter before I launch the game?

How to Activate the Console Window

  • Alter the file “settings.txt” found in your Torchlight 2 Save file.
  • The save file is found here: %userprofile%\My Documents\My Games\Runic Games\Torchlight 2\save (There's a subfolder in there which is just a bunch of numbers, and in that subfolder is your settings.txt file, along with all of your saved games)
  • Open the file with a text editor, then press Ctrl+F and search for Console :0. Change the parameter from Console :0 to Console :1 to activate the Developer Console, enabling use of cheat console commands in Torchlight 2.
  • Now that console is activated, you can open the Console window while in-game by pressing Insert.

NOTE : Using the DEV CONSOLE risks having your account marked as suspicious to unmodified players of Torchlight 2 online. Use console commands at your own risk.
