How do I get Cheats working?

Nope, neither EnableCheats=1, or EnableCheat=1 as FowlManor suggests, do the trick for me.
I'm certain it is the right file, the line is typed correctly and under [Game Options]. I've even tried with typing the new line right beneath the category line and tried with typing it beneath all other lines under that category. Still got nothin'.

Hitting ~ or any near by and similar keys proved fruitless.

Ah well... save files editor it is, then.

By the way, playing this game again after all this time, with a decent modern rig, it's proving to be sweet.
I remember I used to always lag back in the day. Now it's a completely smooth and fluent experience.

i played the 1.3 version and the cheats worked just fine for me.
maybe u guys don't edit the swkotor.ini file corectly...
you have to put EnableCheats=1 at the end of the [Game Options] section...

i Also have a problem getting the cheats to work..I found the SWKOTOR. INI file in the same directory as the game launcher and SWKOTOR.EXE file is. I have typed EnableCheats=1 at the very end of section GAMEOPTION.

[Game Options]
Reverse Mouse Buttons=0
Hide InGame GUI=0
Use Small Fonts=0
Keyboard Camera Deceleration=2000.000000
Keyboard Camera Acceleration=500.000000
Keyboard Camera DPS=200.000000
Hide Unequippable=0
Tutorial Popups=1
Mini Map=1
Floating Numbers=1
Status Summary=1
Enable Mouse Teleporting To Buttons=1
Mouse Sensitivity=33
Auto Level Up NPCs=0
Mouse Look=0
Reverse Minigame YAxis=0
Combat Movement=1
Enable Tooltips=1
Difficulty Level=0
TooltipDelay Sec=1.000000
Memory Access=1
Memory Level=1
Disable Movies=0

This is how it looks now.

but I still can't get any Console up in the game... anyone who knows what is wrong?

So I've got the game running and it's v 1.03

I'm also running on vista...

I've also gone into the .ini and added EnableCheats=1 but I can't get the console to come down using the ~ key. Anyone who could help I'd be very thankful

Because Vista has such great (too much for my liking) safety protections, you have to go into the game as administrator, to run cheats even if you have successfully edit the .ini files. Plus, you have to give your Windows firewall permission to let the game play in its altered state, because Vista's safety protocols now see the altered game as a potential virus. I did those things and ran the game just fine. If you have added protections on you computer that you put onto your system post purchase, you might have to give them administrative permissions to let the altered game run as well. I do appreciate the added safety of these new software packages, but I do not think they are supposed to protect the computer from the owner too .

I am updating my own post here to add additional info: The command console on this game is activated simply by pushing the "~" key and nothing else. Also, there is no "obvious" drop-down console on this game. After enabling cheats, start the game and hit the tilde key (only), look in upper right hand corner of game screen and you will see a ">" blinking there in yellow. Just type in your cheats and hit enter. After hitting enter, hit the tilde key again or your character will be "stuck" until the cheat prompt times out (not good in combat situation). Also know, that Lucas Arts permanently disabled all cheats in the opening scenes aboard the Endore Spire. Call it artistic license. You cannot really use cheats until you clear the Endore spire part of the game and get down to Taris. Then you can do like I did and give yourself $999,999,999,999,999,999,999.00 credits to spend if you like.

the answer is patience,first press the ~ key and enter the code you want to use then press enter and this is a part you wont realise(much).it shows the cheat you've entered but then wait for a couple of seconds and it will be gone
