Installing

Guide to installing the Cyber Engine Tweaks patch into the game

📋 Installation

Before installing, make sure you're running the game in Windowed Borderless. The console will not work properly in fullscreen mode and can cause the game to freeze or not function.

  1. Download the latest Release.zip file.

  2. Unzip to anywhere on your desktop. After unzipping the file, you will see a bin folder.

  3. Drag the bin folder to your Cyberpunk install directory. Example:

    C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Cyberpunk 2077

  4. If installed properly, the Cyber Engine Tweaks files (plugins folder, LICENSE, global.ini, version.dll) will be in the x64 folder of your install directory.

  5. Ensure all apps that add overlays to the game (Rivatuner, Fraps, Afterburner, Discord, Steam, Gog, Windows 10 Game Bar, Geforce Experience, et cetera) are disabled as the console may not open with overlays active.

  6. Launch the game!

  7. When you first start the game, a window will appear prompting you to choose a keybind to bring up the overlay. Pick any key and save it. Now it will open with that key from now on.

  8. (Optional) To check that everything works you can look at the logs in <cyberpunk install path>/bin/x64/plugins/cyber_engine_tweaks/cyber_engine_tweaks.log

📒 Notes

  • If you plan on using large amounts of scripts in the console, it's a good idea to create a separate directory for them to sit in. The root directory when calling the scripts is the place where Cyberpunk2077.exe is located (by default, this is <cyberpunk install path>/bin/x64)

  • For example, if you create a folder called scripts and within that folder create the file myScript.lua, you will be able to call the script in the console with the command dofile "scripts/myScript.lua"
