    My little boy is playing SWKOTOR and is getting his butt kicked in the duals at the Cantina.. I seem to recall there were cheats for this game, but for the life of me, either by google search of forum search, I can find them.

    How do I enable cheats in this game?

    thanks gents.

    Try GameFAQs.com.

    Or raise your level & do the duels before you leave the planet.

    thanks, seems like it's all PC oriented. Not sure what happened the the Mac cheats. I seem to recall there were some. Thanks anyway.

    I just wait until I'm at level 5 (I don't level up past level 5 on Taris since I use the extra 3 level-ups on jedi stuff). At level 5, I've never had an issue. I use buffers and grenades on Bendak, but that's it.

    Do a spotlight search for a file called "swkotor.ini" (I can't remember where it resides) and open it. Under the line of text that reads "[Game Options]" add a line thats reads "EnableCheats=1". Save this file and open KOTOR.
    Load a game and press the "`" key (it's left of the "1" key) to bring up the console, now you can enter any of these cheats:

    setcomputeruse (number)

    I always seemed to have about 10 plasma grenades by the time I got on Taris & was glad to give them to Bendak. In general, move around to avoid shots & use health packs.

    Here is what GameFAQs says for Mac cheats - but may be more intelligible just to level up & keep trying!

    for the benefit of anyone who tries this later... I discovered the problem. My spotlight search wasn't searching the entire computer.. why? I don't know.. but the .ini file is in the Lib/Preferences/Knights of the Old Republic folder in the home folder.. here is more:

    There's a magnifying glass at the very top right of the screen in the menu bar.

    And why are we answering questions from 3 years ago?

    Works fine for me in Lion. What's the problem?

    This file is necessary for KotoR to run...

    Have you looked in YourUser/Library/Preferences/Knights of the Old Republic ? That's where it is located, and Spotlight seems set up in Lion to ignore the Library folder.

    If you can't see your Library folder, enter this command in the Terminal:

    Code:
    chflags nohidden ~/Library/

    Which Library? There's two... the one on the root level of your hard drive, and the one in your users folder. You have to look in the one in your users folder. IDK how the one from the MAS works, it may be slightly different. I don't have that version.

    BTW, does the MAS version support widescreen resolutions?

    Then why did you waste minutes of your life you can never get back reading this thread?

    Completeing the duals is also one of the last quest chains I finish (just have to make sure you do it before you get locked in the mansion.)

    Even all these years later, this is my favorite game. I hope they re-release Sith Lords, maybe in it's finished form with the real ending and the HK Factory. Or the ability to unlock the entire ending without having to replay 10 times.

    Cheats for Kotor on Lion

    I'm running Kotor bought from the Mac App Store on OS Lion and can't enable cheats.

    I've tried:
    -spotlight search for swkotor.ini, nothing comes up
    -looking in the Library, theres no KOTOR folder or file in the preferences
    -looking in the contents folder, nothing in there that works.

    I'm stuck on fighting malak on the ship after being captured and can't beat him.

    I need help...

    You're looking in the wrong Library folder. Look in the one in your users folder, as I mentioned (and provided instructions for) earlier.

    OR

    Looks like the MASb version locates the file under Application Support in your Library folder instead of in Preferences like the old version. This is technically a better place anyway. Have you looked in there?

    You don't beat him, you have to survive each encounter. If you haven't leveled up properly it will be difficult. Use any buffs you've got (force-based or otherwise) that increase your defense and/or offense.

    I had the same problem trying to locate the correct folder. Turns out, the default settings of Lion will hide the user's library folder. Show Library Directory

    Hope this helps!

    pfeh. MISS ONE POST already explaining this and I can't delete this one! *deletedeletedelete*
