How to enable developer console on EA Desktop?

★★★ Novice

Hey y'all! Just another unfortunate soul getting screwed over by the ridiculous decision to force a large percentage of your customer base to use an app that's in beta.

I'm trying to play Dragon Age Origins with the in-game console enabled, but everything I've tried doesn't work. Seriously, I've done every single method the wiki outlines, none of them work. I even downloaded the DAOriginsLauncher.xml file from a friend of mine who plays on steam, to no avail. From what I can tell, the only way is to use the built-in command line in origin, which EA Desktop does not have.

I genuinely cannot play without the dev console. I'm having a mod conflict that requires me to add XP manually, and neither mod is one I'd like to disable. Does anybody here know another way to enable it that isn't on the wiki? Thanks!

Sorry, I don't even know about EA Desktop. I've missed lot of informations. Lost in the woods. Is EA Desktop like Steam app? I have Dragon Age: Origins in Steam version. And I can activate its developer mode. But I don't know how to enable the developer mode on EA Desktop.

Having the same issue and chat support sent me to manually search the forum myself...after telling them I have already manually searched the forum myself.

If you have the Origin game launcher you can try to launch the game while that is running instead of the EA app. You must ensure EA app is closed and Origin is open before running the game. I can use console using this method but as we all know, EA creating the EA app means the Origin Launcher will die, probably sooner rather than later.

I hope this helps some of you

Sadly this only works if you own a copy. Since my only owned copy is for Xbox 360 and the PC version through EA Desktop uses Microsofts Xbox Gamepass, you would think it somehow would work better together but no. Just gotta wait for a cheaper physical copy from Amazon because I am not paying full price for a decade+ old game. 🙄 So make sure you own it peeps!
