If you’re a fan of Company of Heroes 3, you may be wondering how to use console commands to improve your gameplay experience. Fortunately, there are a few different methods you can use to enable console commands, depending on what game mode you’re playing in.
First, let’s take a look at how to enable developer mode so you can use console commands in the campaign. To do this, you’ll need to navigate to the game’s installation folder and find the “Company of Heroes 3.exe” file. Right-click on this file and select “Properties,” then click on the “Compatibility” tab. Under “Compatibility mode,” check the box that says “Run this program as an administrator,” then click “Apply” and “OK.”
Next, you’ll need to add a command line parameter to the game’s shortcut. To do this, right-click on the game’s shortcut and select “Properties.” In the “Target” field, add the following command line parameter at the end of the file path: “-dev.” So the entire path should look something like this: “C:\Program Files (x86)\Company of Heroes 3\Company of Heroes 3.exe” -dev. Click “Apply” and “OK” to save your changes.
Now, when you launch the game and start a campaign, you should be able to open the console by pressing the tilde key (~) and typing in commands such as “fov 90” to adjust the field of view, or “cheat_killself” to instantly kill your selected unit.
But what if you want to use console commands in other game modes, such as multiplayer or skirmish? Unfortunately, enabling developer mode won’t work in these modes. Instead, you’ll need to use a different method.
One option is to download and install a mod that enables console commands in all game modes. One popular mod is the “Debug Tools” mod, which can be found on the Steam Workshop. Simply subscribe to the mod and enable it in the game’s mod manager, then launch the game and press the tilde key to open the console.
Another option is to use a third-party tool such as Cheat Engine to manipulate the game’s memory and enable cheats. However, this method can be more complicated and carries a higher risk of causing issues with your game or even getting you banned from online play, so use it at your own risk.
The console commands are disabled by default in the campaign, but you can use the console if you enable the developer rights. Here’s what you need to do:
