I thought just for fun I'd enter in some commands, but ever since I haven't been able to remove the console.

I tried Ctrl + L, ~, disabling it. Nothing.

I can remove it with Ctrl + L for a brief time until I click with my mouse then it brings it up again.

I even exited my world and shut the game down and it's still doing this. It's kind of annoying and prevents me from being able to play the game.

  • I don't know, but it's happening on all worlds. Old ones and newly created ones. Commented Apr 23, 2015 at 1:48

Check the settings in your Documents/Klei folder, and make sure that ENABLECONSOLE is false:


Next, check that all your files are intact. It could be that somehow your scripts/constants.lua got damaged. Make sure that the values of the following three constants are still valid:


Last, but not least, make sure that it's not a configuration problem. Go into your settings menu, then controls, and click on the right arrow till you get to the last page. Make sure that the debug/console/log functionalities aren't bound to wrong keys or even a mouse button.
