Console activation button

I have a small suggestion - to make a button activating the console, as I'm constantly forgetting the right key combination, so a small button would make it much easier

...um...in what part(s) of the game, exactly? Editors, or...?

I'll be honest, I have my doubts that this is currently possible, but I'll hear you out in case I'm wrong.

I'm using it most of the time in the editors, so yes, creature and adventure editors... (but ideally everywhere, of course). I don't know anything about how to actually do that, but I thought that if it was possible to make the feedback button, this would be something similar.

...right

Being able to make a button do something when clicked has nothing to do with being able to programmatically open the cheat console.


I've thought about this some more, and...I don't mean to be rude/dismissive, but...honestly, I'm not particularly inclined to bother Emd with the necessary research to make this a possibility. It's a lot of work for him, especially for a feature which, if viewed objectively, is entirely reduntant. Dark Injection isn't a mod about fixing the base game, so I don't see why DI would suddenly do this one random thing which has nothing to do with any of its goals.

Best of luck memorizing that keyboard shortcut. A word of advice: use it as much as you can for a while. Link it with something you do every day. Eventually it'll become muscle memory, and then you won't have to think about it to be able to open the console.

Oh, that's fine. If it requires some noticeable effort to do then it's probably not worth it)
