I can't figure out how to access the console menu in Eufloria HD from the Humble Bundle. Every time I press ~, the console opens up but I can't type into it. I've already tried putting "-console" into the shortcut's target property
Do NOT try this if you haven't played the game yet. Eufloria is a wonderful game and should be experienced in the way that is intended, not in the way of cheating.
To cheat, first enable the console by adding "-console" parameter without quotes to the game's shortcut.
In game, first press ctrl+D and nothing will happen. Then press F4 to change faction visibility as well as camera lock.
Press F12 to get desired asteroid ID.
Use ~ to call out the console, and enter a = GetAsteroid(Asteroid ID)
and check that you are indeed the owner of this asteroid: a.owner
this value is 1 for player. Don't panic if it shows error, clean out the input field and try again.
Note: Pause your game before entering any of the following cheats. I have found that sometimes the commands would accelerate time in the game, i.e. everything is faster, way faster for some computers to handle I'm afraid.
