Opened console in the game

Console is a developer interface in Don't Starve. Players can open a console menu by pressing ~ ( English/French), ^ or ö (German Keyboard Layout) æ or ø (Scandinavian Keyboard) or ù (Azerty Keyboard Layout) and "Ñ" in the Spanish Keyboard. It can be hid again by pressing Ctrl + L. However, the feature must be enabled in the settings file located at the following location:

Windows, Mac:  <Documents>\Klei\DoNotstarve\settings.ini
Linux:         ~/.klei/DoNotStarve/settings.ini

Opening settings.ini, players should make the following changes:


If a player wishes to disable the console once it has been enabled they will have to navigate to "\dont_starve\data\scripts\main.lua" and set the "CONSOLE_ENABLED" line to false.

    • I'm not an expert on this (might as well bump for support), but if you could post the entire line of code that'd be helpful.
    • Even if i type  RunS​cript("consolecommands") this in it still does not work.
