How to bring up the console
Many cheats here require the ''Console'' to be brought up, but none says how to get the console up. From start, you can not bring the console up. Here is how to do it.
First of all, rightclick on your Soldier of Fortune shortcut icon on the desktop if you have one, otherwise use explorer to find your SoF folder in Start menu.
Click on the Shortcut tab if not already up.
It will show (an example):
Now this is what you have to do.
Click on the Name: window and after C:GamesSoFSof.exe, type:
+set console 1
It should read:
C:GamesSoFSoF.exe +set console 1
And then try to start the game and see if you can bring up the Console by pressing ~ (tilde).
If it does not work, you might need to do yet another thing to
make this work.
(In my example I will use the C key for bringing up the Console.)
Open file explorer and go to your SoF directory.
Now go in to the ''user'' folder. Open ''config.cfg'' with for example Notepad.
In this file you will see all your keys bindings, such as R for ''Reload'' and so on.
place the cursor after the line:
bind B ''wave 2''
bind C ''toggleconsole''
save the file.
This should make your C key to bring up the console in-game.
NOTE: There is also a folder called ''configs'', you may need to open the file in there and do the same change to it as above.
Now when you have got your Console to work, feel free to run around in God-mode with all weapons and kill everything without ever having to worry about dying.. Have fun...

Max Payne mode
Locate and open up config.cfg
Locate the line with: bind MOUSE2
Change whatever there stands in: bind MOUSE2 ''matrix .2''
Locate the line with: bind Q
Change whatever there stands in: bind Q ''matrix 1''
Now, when playing the game, the right mouse button activates the ''Bullet Time'' while the Q key ends it.
You can of course choose different keys to bind to, but it's more Max Payney like this :)

Hold Silver Talon in left hand
When you need to reload your Silver Talon, lean to the left before reloading. Now reload and the Silver Talon will be held and fired in your left hand, instead of the default which is your right hand. You can put it back into your right hand by doing the above, but leaning to the right instead of the left.
