Note: For Vista/7 Users, you can backup your save files here: C:\Users\"Name Of Your Computer"\Documents\BioWare\Dragon Age\Characters ... Albeit for the other OSs it should be in the Files under your Computer name as well.
First you need to have DLC items, such as armor and weapons (best item to use here is the Dragon Armor Breast Plate). Now go to any "Store" NPC (i.e. Quartermaster) and do the following:
1. Sell the Breast Plate (+7 Sovereign), Save your game and exit to main menu 2. Go to the DLC and Uncheck the Breast Plate from the list 3. Force Load the save file (Ignore the text it gives since in the end the Breast Plate will be enabled). 4. As soon as the file is loaded, Save Your Game and quit to menu 5. Enable the DLC Breast Plate 6. You now made 7 Sovereign and got the Plate back in your Inventory. Rinse and Repeat for more gold.
After you get the desire gold, make sure you follow the steps again so the Breast Plate is in your inventory (just don't sell it until you need more gold for later use). --- I believe violence was existing prior to the release of even Pong - Adam Sessler @ Jack Thompson
Using the console has a chance of corrupting the save file. Of course if you just back them up it does'nt really matter.
Being "creative" with the console has a chance of corrupting the save file. Giving your characters talents you shouldn't have (like giving a Warrior the Rogue talents). Giving yourself more than 2 specializations. Tweaking your stats.
Adding money or XP is perfectly safe. Anything that basically isn't outside of what could actually happen in a game. Giving yourself 1000 gold... that can be done... it would take a while... but it's possible.
Giving yourself 1000000000 gold? Well, that's going a bit overboard. :p --- You can't spell "ignorance" without IGN.
I seriously dont get how to 'activate the console' i followed step by step the cheat section and whenever I try to make a shortcut of my daorigins.exe and add the enabledeveloperconsole it says I have a wrong target... --- The blade is vanquished. So it unfolds...and we are a step closer to our destinies.
