The Deus Ex version I'm playing is the Game Of The Year Edition, available from GOG.com. The main menu shows a version 1.112.fm.
Particular things I've tried:
set DeusEx.JCDentonMale bCheatsEnabled Truein the in-game chat.
-hax0rto the shortcut.
Despite all of these, the game still does not respond when I press the tilde key. Another thing I've noticed though, is that the USER.INI file I'm editing does not appear to match my current game configuration. Some of the other key mappings listed do not match my custom settings.
The USER.INI file I'm working on is stored in the following location:
C:\Program Files (x86)\GOG.com\Deus Ex\System\User.ini
Is there perhaps a different USER.INI file which I should be working on, or is there something else I can do to enable these cheats? Or, is it likely that the GOG.com version is specially altered in some way that (intentionally or not) prevents enabling of cheats?
EDIT: I've just noticed that, even though I still seem unable to actually access the cheats console, my save games are still flagged with CHEATS ENABLED. So, it seems that the game acknowledges I've enabled cheats but for some reason isn't allowing me to use them.
