I'm giving Deus Ex a quick playthrough as a refresher before jumping into Human Revolution. In the interest of expediency, I've decided to cheat. ^.^
Normally, cheats must be re-enabled for each level when playing the original DX. I've encountered instructions on several sites (word-for-word identical instructions, so clearly copy/pasted) for permanently enabling cheats, but they aren't working for me:
Because you will need to redo this for every level, you can open up 'user.ini' and add 'bCheatsEnabled True' in the [DeusEx.DeusExGameInfo] section of the file to allow cheats to be activated forever.
Not only is that not working for me, it doesn't even look right compared to the rest of the file (space instead of
=). With increasing desperation, I've tried adding that line (both verbatim and switching to an equal sign) to every section of both
DeusEx.ini which looks even remotely plausible — even creating a
[DeusEx.JCDentonMale] section, just in case.
Does anyone know how to get this working? I'm running DX:GOTY version 1.112fm from Steam on Windows 7.

%SteamDir%is the folder where Steam is installed (usually
C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam).
