Doom3 Console problem

Recommended Posts

I can’t access Doom 3 console. Get warning of unknown string id #str_xxxxx

When I try to access my Doom 3 console mode using ctrl-alt-~, I get an error message saying:
“WARNING: Unknown string id #str_07044
“WARNING: Unknown string id #str_00747
“WARNING: Unknown string id #str_00749
“WARNING: Unknown string id #str_00750
“WARNING: Unknown string id #str_00753
“WARNING: Unknown string id #str_00754
“WARNING: Unknown string id #str_00756
“WARNING: Unknown string id #str_007131
“WARNING: Unknown string id #str_007132
* * *
The list continues on for about 29 total entries of such warnings.

I think I first noticed this sometime after loading a mod for Doom 3. I think it was either the flashlight mod or the enhanced gore mod.

I’ve also noticed that when I bring up the options mode to change settings for weapons, movement, etc, many of the key options have been replaced by or conjoined with a “#str_xxxxx” entry. For instance, under the movement options, crouch is listed as “C#str_07183”
Forward is listed as “W#_07183”
Sprint is listed as “#str_07029”

Autosave is listed as #str_07178

Has anyone experienced this problem?
Does anyone have a solution for it?

There's your problem. Reinstall Doom3 and try again.

Btw, resizing the topic title. Go easy with the caps locks, okay?

Thank you! (sorry about caps lock!)

After I uninstall DOOM3 and then reinstall it, do you think I can reinstall my saved games without corrupting the program again?
