Dragon Age Inquisition is one of those games where you can always use a bit of extra help. And what’s better than using a few cheats to make things easier every now and then?
Compared to other games, the list of available console commands is rather short. But, hey, it’s still better than nothing.
Without any further ado, let’s get right into it.
How to Enable The Game Console
Some people said that the console was enabled by default while others found that they couldn’t get access to it until enabling it. Maybe it has something to do with the patch version that you’re running.
In any case, we’re going to mention how to enable it. Just to be safe.
- Create a shortcut of the .EXE file
- Right-click on it
- Select “Properties”
- And on the target field, add “– enabledeveloperconsole”
After that, the target field should appear like this: C:\Program Files (x86)\Dragon Age 2\bin_ship\DragonAgeInquitiion.exe – enabledeveloperconsole. Of course. that’s unless the game is installed on another drive. In which case, “C” will be replaced with the drive that the game is installed in and “\Program Files (x86)” will be replaced with the current directory.
Once that’s done, just open the game and click on the “~” button on your keyboard to launch the console, insert the command of your choice, and that’s about it.
Dragon Age Inquisition Console Commands
These commands are only meant to be used for the PC version in order to unlock the FPS, enable VSync, and things like that. We’ve added a few notes to the ones that are more likely to be useful. So, keep an eye out for them.
GameTime.MaxVariableFPS (This is the one you need for unlocking the framerate)
Render.ResolutionScale (This can be used to incrase or decrease the screen resolution)
WorldRender.MotionBlurEnable (Enables motion blur. Generally not recommended. But, it’s a matter of personal taste)
RenderDevice.Dx11Enable (Switches to DX11 which is more or less the standard shader nowadays)
RenderDevice.VSyncEnable (Enables VSync)
RenderDevice.TrippleBufferingEnable 1 (Enables Triple-Buffering. Do keep in mind that your computer needs to produce more FPS than your screen’s refresh rate at all times or you’ll face terrible stutters)
RenderDevice.ForceRenderAheadLimit 2 (Force rendering only 2 frames ahead)
Perfoverlay.DrawGraph 1 (Shows Performance Graph)
Perfoverlay.DrawFPS 1 (Shows your FPS on-screen)
Screenshot.Render (Takes a Screenshot)

It’s highly recommended to perform backups and save your game before starting to play around with commands. It’s not uncommon for games to crash or behave erratically when the wrong command is executed at the wrong time.
As mentioned above, compared to other games, Dragon Age Inquisition doesn’t offer a lot of commands to play with. But, still, that’s better than nothing.
You could always try to get some more options by using something like Cheat Engine. But, that can quickly get tedious and in the end, it’s arguably not worth the trouble.
