Post Testing Cheats Enabled True for Sims Medieval
So I think I may have found a way to make the children playable characters but for that I have to use the old testing cheats enabled trick... I've been trying to type it in the same way I always would, but it's not working. Does anyone know how to make it work for Sims Medieval.

I managed to get it working, it's so much more awkward then in the Sims 3. It involves editing a file, but it's nothing too major.

Go to these folders in this order:

Program Files -> Electronic Arts -> The Sims Medieval -> GameData -> Shared -> NonPackaged -> Ini

Now that you're in the "Ini" folder you should see a file called Commands. Open it in notepad (by right clicking and choose to open in notepad.

You'll see this appear in notepad:

; Warning: Editing this file is not supported and could have unpredictable results.
; You might permanently damage your save file and/or game experience. Achievements,
; Ambitions, and Quests might become impossible to complete and the game could
; become stuck. There may be no way to recover. It is recommended that you backup
; your save game before making any changes to this file.

; Enables/disables advanced console cheat codes
[Config]
TestingCheatsEnabled=0

It's important that you only change one thing, change the 0 to a 1 and then save. You'll also have to right click the command file and go to preferences and edit so it's not read only. It's not too difficult but it's a bit cumbersome. You might not need to do this next part but for some reason I wasn't able to save it the first time...so what I did was make a copy of the command file and edit/save it elsewhere. I then deleted the command file and replaced it with the copy. It works in my game now and I can move the sims needs up and down too which is a lifesaver.

What are the other cheats that this ini change enables? Can you do anything with the children, like change their outfits?

EDIT: I just saw this picture online, so it must be possible somehow:

YET ANOTHER EDIT: Woo hoo, it is possible to make a child selectable so you can control him or her and change his or her hair & clothes! (Shift and right-click on the child.) But now I'm trying to figure out if you can de-select them too, so I can select another child. Seems like I can only have one active at a time. Hmmm....

An update: I was able to select a child, change her hair and clothes (Finally! She looks like a princess instead of a street urchin boy!!), and then de-select her. To de-select I had to hold down Shift and then do a double-right-click. Hope that helps someone else.

Does this work ONLY if you use the hold-down Shift and double-right click?? Did you have to go through the files and change things before you tried this??

I did the thing mentioned above of changing the commands.ini file -- change the zero to a one. This enables many more cheats. Then when I was in the game I was able to select a child (make her playable) by Shift/Right-Clicking her. When I was done changing her hair and clothes, I played her for a while and then when I wanted her to be an NPC again I had to Shift/Double-Right-Click her. Hope that helps.

Ooh gotcha ;) I don't usually go into the files and changing the game like that, (I'm not tech-savvy!!) but I might give it a try lol

It still wouldn't work somewhat, when I change the settings like what you said, it still wouldn't work. I tried typing 'testingcheatsenabled true' and it won't work. And then, I typed 'testingcheatsenabled on'. Just nothing works. Help?

Found out I had to make it show hidden files, but its still not working.
When I changed the file it wouldn't save. I made a copy and changed that, but it wouldn't let me replace the file in the folder I need. Help?
