    Every patch starting at v2.0 and higher needs to have the baldur.lua file edited instead of the baldur.ini. See this topic. I believe that is also the case for Android although I'm not 100% sure.

    @knightmare7861, welcome to the forum. Getting the console to work on Android is a bit of hit and miss effort. You haven't mentioned which version of which game you are trying to mod so I will try for both 1.x and 2.x (if it works, it will for BGEE, BG2EE and IWDEE). I am leaning towards BGEE v1.3.x due to the mention of .ini, but I would also recommend trying the betas that are available in Google Play.

    Firstly, make sure you have the following line in your baldur.ini:

    'Program Options', 'Debug Mode', '1',

    I note that you have Hacker's Keyboard installed (set it to transparent theme) and a WiFi keyboard (is this Bluetooth?). With the keyboard connected, you should be able to hit CTRL-Enter to get the console working. CTRL-8 should work fine. I hadn't tried until just then but it works for me.

    Make sure you have the following line in your baldur.lua:

    SetPrivateProfileString('Program Options','Debug Mode','1')

    Once this is done, then you should be ready to go as above.

    Unfortunately, it hasn't worked for all devices. I am using a Samsung Note 4, and have also had it workin on a Tab S without problems

    Good Luck

    I have the beta and I'm using a ZTE Max pro. I'll try the .Lua and hope for the best thank you for the help

    Wifi keyboard is an app that lets you use your computer as a keyboard
