This is a short guide instructing the method to enable developer console. It allows you to apply cheat codes, ipatch and other stuffs.

First of all, run your Ren’Py game and press Shift+O (It is an O, not zero).

Not working? Alright, that means developer console is disabled for that game.

Enabling the Developer Console of Ren’py Games:

Step 1: Download This File

Or, Create a text document called options.rpy and paste below code there and Save.

init -1:
python hide:
config.developer = True

Second line needs 4 spaces before python hide:

Third line needs 8 spaces before config.developer = True*

If you dont know how to create a custom file, head over here: How to create a text document with custom extension in PC.

Step 2: Now you have to place the code in a folder called game inside your Ren’py game. The path should look like this, yourgamename/game/options.rpy

(if options.rpy already exists, simply rename your options.rpy to whatever name you prefer.)

Enabling the Console Commands on Ren’py Games:

Go to gamename/Renpy/Common/00console.rpy

Press Ctrl+F and enter config.console (Finding this term)

Set it’s variable to True

so it should look like,

config.console = True

Save the file.

Now the Shift+O should work.

  1. I’ve done all the steps and the console opens, but money = 9999 or any number does not seem to be working. Why is that?

  2. I see. The issue is the CMS here not identifying spaces.

    Exchange “-” for a space.
    init -1:
    —-python hide:
    ——–config.developer = True
