Using commands[]

In order to use console commands, you need to be able to access the console and enable cheats.

Accessing the console[]

Deus Ex: Game of the Year Edition or v1.112fm Older versions of Deus Ex
  1. Press the chat button (default: T).
  2. Delete "Say" so that only ">" is visible at the bottom of the screen.
  3. Type in a command and press Enter to execute it.
  1. Go to "DeusEx\System" and open "User.ini" ("Documents\DeusEx\System" if using certain third party launchers, such as Kentie's Deus Exe)
  2. Replace any instances of "Tilde=" with "Tilde=Type" (alternatively, "Tilde=Talk" can be used instead, but the word "Say" will have to be deleted when the Tilde (~) key is pressed in-game.)
  3. In-game, press Tilde (~) to open the console.
  4. Type in a command and press Enter to execute it.

Turning on cheats[]

Most of the commands listed below are classified as "cheats," and cannot be used without following extra steps.

  • Method 1: Adding a launch parameter
    • Add "-hax0r" to the game's shortcut target line ('0' is a zero, not a letter O).
    • If you have the Steam version, follow these instructions to add the "-hax0r launch option".
  • Method 2: Editing the user.ini file
    • Open User.ini (located at "DeusEx\System" or "Documents\DeusEx\System")
    • Add "bCheatsEnabled=True" under the "[DeusEx.DeusExGameInfo]" section.
  • Method 3: Enabling cheats via the console
    • Open the console and enter the command "Set Human bCheatsEnabled True" or "Set DeusEx.JCDentonMale bCheatsEnabled True".
    • You will have to do this every time you launch Deus Ex if you use this method.

If cheats have been enabled, saving the game will show - CHEATS ENABLED - on the screenshot. To eliminate this, simply load the game and disable cheats by inputting the console command "Set DeusEx.JCDentonMale bCheatsEnabled False".

Fullscreen console mode.

Fullscreen console[]

In the Deus Ex: Game of the Year Edition or v1.112fm, the fullscreen console can be accessed by pressing the chat button (default: T), and then pressing "Shift+Tilde" to open the console in fullscreen mode.

In older versions, if you have set "Tilde=Type in your "User.ini" file, you can press "Shift+Tilde" to open the console in fullscreen mode. You can scroll through your command history with "PgUp" and "PgDn", and you can exit the fullscreen console by pressing "Esc".

Cheat/command list[]

You can bind any of the following cheats in the User.ini file. For example, changing the value "L=" to "L=God" will give you god mode in game by pressing that key. Text in <angle brackets> represents a mandatory parameter, text in [square brackets] represents an optional parameter. Slashes mark a choice between parameters. All other text is required. Commands are not case sensitive.
