Recommended Posts

Hi all. Is there anyplace that I can find a complete list of all the PDA's and the associated emails? If not online somewhere, where can they be found in the actual game files?

Thanks!

Hmm, that will certainly help but I was really looking for the actual text in all the PDA's. Ideally I would like to read through them out of the game. Not sure if anyone ever catalogued them all.

True. Is there any way to get them directly from the game files?

Yes! Your question sparked my interest so I took a look myself.

1) Use WinZip to open the "pak000.pk4" file in the "base" folder in your Doom 3 installation directory.
2) Order the files by "Path"
3) Scroll down to the "newpdas\" path.
4) Right-click on any of the ".pda" files and choose "Open with internal viewer".

You could also extract all the .pda files to your hard drive, and make a file association with Wordpad or Notepad. Hold down the shift key then right-click on any of the .pda files and choose "Open With...", select either Wordpad or Notepad, ensure the "Always use this program to open these files" is checked, and press OK.

Wordpad is better at handling long files, BTW.

Quake-based engines are great, you can always get inside the game data files quite easily and have a poke around. Images, sounds, maps, script files etc. they're all there.

Nice! That rocks. Thanks a lot.

Hey, that sounds like a cool idea. Let us know how it pans out.

I've also found some info on iddevnet.com about the PDA scripts:
http://www.iddevnet.com/doom3/pdas.php
http://www.iddevnet.com/doom3/editor_pda.php

It seems there's a dedicated PDA Editor which you can use to create/view the PDA files. This will definitely be easier and more efficient than viewing each one individually.

There appears to be a console command which invokes the editor in-game - "editPDAs":

Otherwise, you could try the Doom 3 SDK and see if it's included there:
