Hi,
I have been trying to get my sims 3 cheat to work.
I have checked to see if I am typing in wrong but not.
I have done it on pause, on edit town, on pause on edit town.
The cheat box comes up but then once I type in it just goes away like a normal cheat would.
But then it doesn't work.
Someone please Help!!!!

Once you've written it, remember to Shift+Click when you use it. Try it on the mailbos for example. (: You dont have to download anything, I didnt, and it worked for me.
Mine doesnt work to

What you should do is try again
if that doesnt work then...
1) Type in "Testingcheatsenabled true"
2)Press enter
3)Press Shift Then Click
If that doesnt work then try again the next time you play, that always works for me.
It stands "unknown command"
I’m pretty sure it’s written testingCheatsenabled true

Actually, its still the same. I use testingcheatsenabled true still, and it works just fine for me. I have the latest version updated (1.69.36.024017)

Hey Good Afternoon,

Are you typing it in case sensitive like...testingCheatsEnabled true
Pay attention to the C and E.
Open the console by pressing Control + Shift + C. You'll see a blue bar at the top of the game, this is the console. now, type in testingCheatsEnabled true and press Enter to activate the code.

Have Fun!
non of these thing work for me

Same the only thing that comes up when I shift + click the mailbox is object and then delete.
The shift+click things work for me, but my needbars won't fill up when I make them static, also, when I click and drag my needbars, they won't fill.

i had this problem for over a year! i finally got it working a couple of days ago, make sure you type "testingcheatsenabled on" exactly and it should work, then you can shift click your sim and mailbox ect. to get the extra actions ☺️

You have to go to the main menu before you click your save household and then type in testingcheatsenabled true

You may be missing the other part of the command:

Its testingcheatsenabled true

You may have just typed: testingcheatsenabled

I hoped this helped or gave a little insight,

It's happening to me too. I've typed it in correctly, I've been playing for years and have come back to sims 3 from sims 4 as there is more to do, however my man is at uni renting a home and I'm trying to get his girlfriend to move in but when I use testing cheats, shift click on the girlfriend the option to move her in isn't there? I can edit her in creat a sim or object delete but no way to control her or move her in. I'm stumped.

I've been struggling pretty hard with this and it wasn't until I put in the code and then pressed shift then right clicked (using a MacBook) and it worked!!!! I was missing the SHIFT then right click all along. Hope this helped!

If you've cracked the game, you may update your game to the newest version possible.

You can always just google it.
