    Did you activate the console in the game before it's launched?

    IIRC, you have to add a line to the app execute that allows the console.

    EDIT: Yeah, you have to add "-console" (wihtout the double quotes) into the launch.. there's an advanced field for it someplace in the game's preferences when you're in Steam.

    To access the console while in game, you really don't need to add anything to the launch options. Go to Options -> Keyboard -> Advanced -> Enable Console.

    Edit: If you have enabled it in the options, I have no answer for you, sorry.
