why dont u guys just open the console?
To enable the console, browse to and open the file ...Documents\BioWare\Mass Effect\Config\BioInput.ini (the full location is mentioned above) in any text editor (Notepad, for example), but not with rich text editor (Microsoft Word, OpenOffice Writer, WritePad, and the likes).
In the file you opened, search for [Engine.Console], and add the line ConsoleKey=Tilde just under it. This will create a console around 3/4 the height of your screen. Adding the line TypeKey=Tilde underneath ConsoleKey (or whatever keys you prefer) will instead create a console that is only one line wide at the bottom of your screen, allowing you full use of the console while allowing you to see in-game going-ons.
By default the [Engine.Console] section will contain: [Engine.Console]
whne ur done make sure its read only so the console will forever to be opened and then just use codes on the wiki for inf life and such things.
