Stuck in Doom 2 on Map 13 Downtown - likely some bug
Hey guys,

I am at the end of Doom 2 map 13 Downtown; I just entered the red door and there is an elevator that is supposed to take me up to the yellow key. Only problem is that the elevator only goes up very little and not enough to reach the yellow key; I have seen it go all the way up, but then I fell from it, loaded a save game and now it will not go up anymore.

I think this is a bug. Doom 2 wiki does not mention any known bugs for this level. Does anyone know a workaround for this? I would hate to restart the level... (and no, cheats are not an option, as I want the achievements...)

thanks for the hint;

but it does not really help; in the film, at time index 14:00 the doom guy climbs on the elevator and the elevator rises all the way up to a point where he can jump tp the gold key.

Well, my problem is that for me the lift only goes up like some cm, not nearly enough, and then just stops. Therefore I cannot make the jump to the ledge where the gold key is.

reinstall the game

did like you said, reinstalled the game
Did not help though

Also, I jsut realised that my previous save game was from level 8; that sets me back 5 (yes, you heard it: five) levels

I loved getting to level 13; now, with this stupid stupid stupid setback, it will take a while before I come back to this POS BFG release

Weird...did you try contacting ID?
aveamurechi Jun 24, 2014 @ 11:14am 
Yes I did, after you suggested it.... :D

The reply is:
- yes, this is a bug, it happens rarely at that particular elevator, and it has something to do with saving and exiting the game (they were not very specific, but I tend to believe it, because it so happens I was doing a lot of saving :P)

What can I do about it? Nada, Zip, Zilch.
What will ID/Bethesda do about it? Nada, Zip, Zilch. Anyway from the tone of the reply this is a known issue in their house.

I can load a previous saved game (the closest one for me is @ level 8), or die/kill myself if there is no monster left to do it and start over the level... of course with the natural ammo/weapons penalty. Also, I do not know how this affects my ability to unlock some achievements......

So there you go. This sucks, big time.

Hope anybody else reads this and does not get into the same trap.

have this same problem

For me the solution was to redo all levels from my last save, which was level 8. I did not want to risk losing the achievement by dying in the level. And this was on Nightmare difficulty.... I do hope you have a save closer to the moment this happens.....

Anyway, I feel your pain, and I still don't understand why Id/Steam/Whomever does not fix this isssue, since it seems to be known....

hey! yo tuve el mismo bug y se arreglo cuando jugue el save anterior (pero tiene que ser un save previo, sin haber usado la red key aun) Todavia no logro entender como es que se produce ese bug, si logro descubrirlo publico un post aqui para que otros jugadores no tengan que pasar por esto y asi evitarlo.
