When playing Dragon Age origins, one of the most frustrating aspects of the game where all the locked doors and chests you could not get access to unless you where nifty with the theivery, didn’t you just wish you could bash in the lock?

Well now you can! with this handy mod you’ll be kicking in doors and smashing open chests to get at the goodies inside, although from time to time you will damage items inside for balance sakes but at least if you have the key already it wont let you break in, so it’s derp proof to.

Extract DAZIPs.
Install using \Dragon Age Origins\bin_ship\daupdater.exe

Then open up DragonAge.ini, found in:
\Documents\BioWare\Dragon Age\Settings

And add the following lines to the bottom:

[xatmos]
BashChestsOnly=0
BashJustBash=0
BashAchievement=0
BashEXP=1
BashCanRogue=1
BashCanWarrior=1
BashCanWizard=1
BashCanOther=1
BashNoRequirements=0
BashItemBreakNotice=1
BashItemBreakChance=MEDIUM
BashStatRogue=DEXTERITY
BashStatWarrior=STRENGTH
BashStatWizard=MAGIC
BashStatOther=STRENGTH
BashDifficulty=NORMAL

Most of these options are self-explanatory but here are some details on the less obvious ones:
– BashNoRequirements will always allow bashing regardless of stats (applies to doors always, but chests only when BashItemBreakChance is set to NONE).
– BashItemBreakChance has four settings, LOW (~20%), MEDIUM (~33%), HIGH (~50%), and NONE. When set to NONE there is no chance of breaking items, however you will instead have to pass a “bash” check, unless BashNoRequirements is also set.
– BashAchievement causes bashing to count towards the lockpick achievement.
– BashJustBash will cause the player to bash away even if there is a chance to break items and an eligible lockpicker (other than yourself) present.
– BashDifficulty has three settings, EASY, NORMAL, and HARD, which correspond to the stat requirements to bash the most difficult locks in the game (31, 46, and 61, respectively).
