Here's the solution and it works, 1st: make a shortcut on the d\top to "C:\Program Files\Dragon Age\bin_ship\daorigins.exe" (or where ever you have it installed. R click and select properties,add the following " -enabledeveloperconsole" Access the game through this shortcut. Whilst in game press "Â¬" the key above the tab key "NOT THE TILDE KEY" as often stated. followed by the "back space" then proceed to edit the console, you will see white writing @ the top of the screen but continue to type. Example if you type "runscript zz_money 1000000" on typing the letter "r" white letters should appear @ the top of the screen and upon completion of the aforementioned type your cash should rise considerably. Hope this helps and your enjoyment is fulfilled, feel free to mail me @ "email@example.com" with any queries as it can be done & does work.
There's a related file on nexus or social bioware, I forget. It adds a file that apparently wasn't put in the game. It enables all your console commands to show up so you know what you are typing. Makes things a lot easier, just search Console and look for it. It's probally on social bioware site.
