The Mod.txt file - Only a text file, but that's it.
Well, got bored and started fiddling around with GOW again.
I've had this "mod" for a long time and it's been changing only a bit in the past. Thought I'd share it.
Lol if you've seen this anywhere else (posted so far at modacity, cheathappens and L4Y ages ago) is because I've been too lazy to post it here. Anyway, have fun!
Cheat Mod for Gears of War (PC)
Place the text file (Mod.txt) into your default GOW binaries folder.
C:\Program files\Microsoft Games\Gears of War\Binaries\
Then, in game, open up the console (usually the tilde key) and type:
Effects in game:
-increased health to all allies and Marcus, thus only the chainsaw can kill you as it is an insta-kill weapon.
-Increased clip size, ammo capasity amd how much there is of it, so you won't run out of it ever again.
-Weapons have been tweaked to be a little stronger (some more accurate, some have a larger explosion radius, some have higher ROF etc).
-Headshots deadlier, but other bodyparts tougher.
-You can get to cover from a longer distance.
-Active reload's easier to get and Perfect Active Reload damage boost bonus is a lot better now and lasts longer plus your buddies use it too.
-Tweaks to AI; they can do new tricks...
-Other minor tweaks that you can look into later.
Achievements are deactivated by the use of this cheat mod (or any cheat mod for that matter), but look
on the bright side, atleast it won't crash your game like those trainers do.
Some of the commands aren't always located in a certain level
(the one you're in at the moment when you activate the mod for instance)
So you might have to re-activate the mod with the command, but they stay on in the rest of the levels.
The mod deactivates after either going back to the main menu or by restarting the game.
If you can't get the console to work then try editing the Warinput.ini file in your
Username\My Documents\My games\Gears of War for Windows\Wargame\Config folder, specifically these lines:
ConsoleKey=Tilde <--Which key the console is
TypeKey=Tilde <--Should be the same as the console key!!
bEnableUI=True <--This needs to be set to TRUE
If you have a Gold LIVE account then either disable it or make a new account (silver or local) to use the
Commands, I noticed difficulties when using a gold account and commands.
You can look into the mod.txt file for more details and even some info on how to tweak it yourself!
But if you have any questions then you can just type them here and I'll try to come back regulary to answer them.
