Re: Sims 4- I can't bring up the cheat window/console

Hey all -

 

Was browsing this thread when I realized I have a Radeon graphics card on my computer.

 

The program Radeon Software has "Toggle Camera" bound to Control-Shift-C, and is commonly running in the background, even if you never turned it on.

 

Unbinding this immediately fixed my problem.

 

Hope this helps anyone who happens to have a Radeon Graphics Card.

I have just upgraded the drivers on my Radeon card and now can''t use control-shift-C in the Sims 4. What are the steps to unbind in the Radeon software?

  • Right clicking your desktop and select AMD Radeon Settings.
  • Choose "ReLive" > "Toggle Camera Hotkey"

Why won't the command console window appear when I press, CTRL SHIFT C?

★★ Novice

I've played The Sims 4 before like 2 days ago and the console command window always appeared when I press, CTRL+SHIFT+C, but since I repaired the game cuz (my character was not appearing in the "Create a Sim" menu when changing their clothes), it won't work now to bring up the console command window while playing the game. 😖😞

This must be some kind of dumb bug. I could get to the cheat command window before I repaired the game. 😖 So how is it an AMD thing?🤨 I had AMD Radeon before the game was repaired and I could use the cheat command console just fine. 🤔 I accessed my AMD Radeon software and went to where you can supposedly hit the "toggle" for unbending that ctrl-shift-c but how do you know it unbound it, it doesn't show you anything to let you know? This is frustrating. 😣😫How is it an AMD Radeon thing when I was able to use the Cheat console command BEFORE the game was repaired and not after?🤨 I guess all my new Sims I make are going to have to get jobs now to decorate their homes cuz I can no longer help them. 😣😞

@crinrict I found that my GPU software also use Control + Shift + C so I disabled the Hotkey and now Sims is back to normal.
