I have the steam version of the game and the .ini file cheats listed here and on other sites are not working.

Am I doing anything wrong? Please advise!

i think steam has blocked the cheats. but, i have an old save file where the cheats work, but on any of my new ones, they've been disabled

Hmmm... you may have already tried this. If not then do try...in the .ini file the function keys (F1=..., F2=... etc) are located more than once. So if you want to assign God mode to F10 then you have to assign it to (F10=God) to all occurance of that key. I only assigned once and the cheats did not work. After assigning God to all F10's in file cheat works fine. And note that once you move to a new area/level in the game, you have to press that key again to enable cheat.

Hope this helps.

1. find the user.ini file, its in C:\Users\*your name*\AppData\Roaming\Bioshock

2. Delete the file

3. Run the game, and then exit the game

4. edit the user.ini file and its the same format as the defuser.ini (F10=god) and etc.

I tried the steps and the "user.ini" file didn't show up after the old one was deleted and I ran the game. Any help would be appreciated...

you can't find User folder becaus it's hidden.
when you're in the "My Computer" window, click on "Tools" on top of the menu, then choose, "Folder Options"
Folder option window pops up, click on the 2nd tab on top, named "View"
in the Advanced Setting category, choose "Show hidden files and folders"

Now, you can browse to your C:\Documents and Settings\[XP Username]\Application Data\Bioshock\User.ini

that's the new file or version 1.1

good luck

heres another method for the ini cheats. if you got steam then you have multiple .ini files, each one with another language. (for example DefUser_fra.ini or something) so all you gotta do is enter in the cheat in EVERY value of the button you want it at in ALL of the DefUser files. this shoud work out!
