How to Enable Testing Cheats in The Sims Medieval

In addition to using codes, it's possible to enable more cheats by editing one of the game's files. The TestingCheatsEnabled feature, which has been a staple of previous The Sims games, acts as a debugging tool.

To enabled testing cheats:

  1. Make sure that the game is not running.

  2. Locate the Commands.ini file on your computer. If you have trouble locating it, check your computer's settings and make sure you don't have system files hidden.

    On a normal install of the game on Windows, the file is located in the following directory structure: C://Program Files/Electronic Arts/The Sims Medieval/Game Data/Shared/Nonpackaged/Ini/Commands.ini.

  3. Copy the Commands.ini file on your Desktop or somewhere easy to locate.

  4. Open the copied Commands.ini file with Notepad or another plain text editor. At the bottom of the file you will see the following line of text:


    Windows users must have administrator permissions to modify the file. In Windows 7, right-click the Commands.ini file and choose View the Properties. In the Security section, select Users and choose Full Control.

  5. Change the zero to a 1 so that it looks like the following:

  6. Save the file wherever you placed it. When saving, select the file type dropdown arrow and choose All Files, not Text Files.

    If you saved the file as Commands.ini.txt, right-click the file name to rename it and remove the trailing .txt.

  7. Locate the original file again and rename it BACKUPCommands.ini. That way, you can revert in case anything goes wrong.

  8. Move the edited Commands.ini file into the folder with the original.

  9. Load the game, bring up the cheat console, and enter the following: testingcheatsenabled true.
