This article is about the console in the original Torchlight. For Torchlight II, see Console (T2).

The console is a developer tool that players can access in Torchlight for the purposes of testing or altering the game world. With the help of some cheats listed below, it is possible to complete Steam Achievements.

Enabling the consoleEdit

To enable the developer console, find where Torchlight stores its application data. On Windows, press Win+R, type in "%appdata%\runic games\torchlight" and press enter. Find settings.txt and change "Console:0" to "Console:1", save and exit.

To open the console in game, press "Shift" + "~".

NOTE: Using some console commands (such as "DESCEND") can flag your current character as a "cheat," meaning that the character will lose access to the shared stash. The console is somewhat unpredictable in what it considers a "cheat," so it's best to use this on test characters, not on characters you care about.
