Console/Achievement bug
While playing I stumbled upon a PDA and I got a message along the lines that my achievements are disabled because the console is enabled? Is this a normal bug and does anybody know how to fix it? Before anybody questions if my console is enabled - it isn't ( I've checked it a few times now).

Thanks in advance for any possible answers.

Did you change your FOV? Or did you take a screenshot? The game thinks you enabled the console if you did and will turn of achivments. Its a known bugg.

Yeah I did both of those things. Is there any way to fix the problem? I'd really like to get the achievements without having to reinstall and restarting.

I also noticed that I was able to get achievements in Doom and Doom 2 without problems so it seems like a pretty weird bug.

Thanks for the info anyways Carnifex.

Does this game work on Windows 8/8.1??

Add the string "seta com_allowconsole 0" in default.cfg at D:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\DOOM 3 BFG Edition\base

And I recommend you also to change the button which take a screenshoot from F12 to another one, f.e. "i". You can do it in Steam settings, even possible in-game, just ALT + TAB.

Yes, it works perfectly on Windows 8/8.1.

If you just start a new game shouldn't it allow Achievements again?

Yes, unless you already saved AFTER hitting the console key or taking an unplanned screenie. Just make sure to NOT save after hitting ~ or a screen capture. If you disable the achievements, THEN save, you'll lose achievements for the remainder of that save file.

Also, you can make those setting changes within your steam overlay too. I believe default hotkey is SHIFT+F11.
