In Topic: I need a KOTOR2 save editor for Mac

Turns out that my danish keyboard didn't trigger the console, despite the pressing the correct key (´), but switching to an american keyboard did. Problem solved, as I healed my way through!

Okay, since no one has the save editor, I'll ask in a different way - How do I open the console? I've added "EnableCheats=1" and "Enable Console=1" to the .ini file, but I can't get it to open in any way, no matter which keys I press. Any suggestions?

I think the current model is rather "trialware" than actually "shareware". One important part about shareware was always, well, the sharing, i.e. the possibility of simply copying the unregistered software and spreading it to anyone who wanted it. That simply does no longer work with the trial versions from the App Store or Steam.
Not the binary itself no, but I can easily share you a link, which gives you the binary. So wether I give you a link or a CD is really not very different, it is just the medium that has changed, and I really do consider it more or less the same.

It's kind of apt to fund this book using crowdfunding. Or maybe it's ironic, given that the thesis is that shareware largely disappeared after a while.
Short of the 'share' part, which is moot since it is available for everyone anyone with a few clicks, current Apps that you download for free and then unlock using an in-app purchase works the exact same way. So Shareware is kind of back.
