We promised them, and here they are! Please note that using debug console commands is unsupported by Bethesda and our customer service team.
To access the debug console, do the following:
In Steam, right click on The Evil Within and select “properties” then under the General tab, hit “set launch options.”
- Put this in to unlock the console: +com_allowconsole 1
- Once the game has launched, hit the Insert key to bring down the developer console.
These are the commands you can use and some notes about each:
- R_swapinterval <NUMBER>
- Sets the FPS lock. Note that the numbers below are negative.
- -2: This is the default, set to 30 FPS. This is the officially supported frame rate
- -1: This sets the FPS limit to 60. Fully playable, although there may be quirks (we’re going to fix these).
- 0: This fully unlocks the FPS. We do not recommend playing above 60. We will not fix any issues above 60.
- God mode. You are effectively invincible, and certain enemy kill moves will not be used against you (Laura, for example, will not jump on you)
- Allows you to walk through walls
- Unlimited ammo (provided you have at least 1 bullet when you enable this)
- G_stoptime 1
- Stops time. Note there is a bug right now where using this command causes a UI element to appear on screen. We’re looking to fix that in the near future.
- Re enable time with g_stoptime 0
- Separates the camera from Sebastian so you can freely move around the
- R_forceaspectratio <NUMBER>
- Sets the aspect ratio. Default is 2.5, which is our official aspect ratio.
- 0 is full screen, but not ideal. 1.8 or 2 is probably most comfortable for those who don’t want bars.
- Turns on id’s native FPS counter
- Slows down time
- Disables slow motion
