Torchlight's console gives players, testers, and the developers an easy way to test and modify the game without making a new build. You can alter the game's difficulty, your characters stats, current zone, and many other things using the console.

To access the console, you must first alter the Settings.txt file in your %appdata% torchlight folder. This may not work on your version of the game, depending on which distributor you purchased it through.

To reach the Torchlight folder
  • In Windows Vista, navigate to C:\Users\<USERNAME>\AppData\Roaming\runic games\torchlight.
  • For any version of Windows, from either the run prompt or the search bar (click on the start button) type %appdata% and press Enter to reach the roaming folder. Find the runic games folder, then the torchlight folder.
  • in linux : ~/.runicgames/Torchlight
  • Note: The settings.txt does not exist until after you run the game for the first time.
Modifying Settings.txt

Open the file, Settings.txt, using a text editor (i.e. Notepad) and change the "Console :0" line to "Console :1". Save and close the file.

Start the game. When you have control of your character, press the following simultaneously to bring up the console (this will zoom in and pause the game; bringing up the console in the bottom left hand corner of the screen; you can drag the window, and open menus like normal):

  • American English keyboard: Shift and ~
  • British English keyboard: Shift and #
  • Norwegian keyboard: Shift and Ø
  • German keyboard: Shift and ö
  • Portuguese keyboard: Shift and ç

To close the console, either press the red "X" icon at the top right, or press Esc.
