Achievement disabled because console was enabled
HI guys, I just finished RAGE on ultra nightmare difficulty and a message popped up saying something like "achievements have been disabled because the console was enabled in this game". Thing is, I don't remember every opening up the console, I read that it was the button "~" so perhaps when using a bandage or something I accidentally pressed that.

First of all, how do you disable console?

Secondly, what's best way to fix this so I finally get the achievement?

Thanks

Did you allow the console to be opened in the game, e.g. from the game's command line?

Check if you have "Com_allowconsole 1" set anywhere: in launch parameters in library properties of the game, user configuration files, etc. Either remove it or change to "Com_allowconsole 0".


If you need the console and achievements, enable it in "base\default.cfg" configuration file in the game's directory, by adding 'Com_allowconsole 1' at the end.

You have to have that set in launch options in Steam library.

Though I achievements are a plague, heh.

Edit: And ninja'd.

If I press "~" during the game then the console does pop up, so I guess it was enabled but I can't for the life of me remember ever enabling it.

I've gone into the launch options in the steam library and nothing was there, so I typed in "com_allowconsole 0" to be safe.

Now when I start the game and I press "~" the console does not pop up at all, so I'm assuming that it is disabled now. I finished the game again just now with the save that apparently had console enabled, and the same "achievements have been disabled" message pops up.

If I have to start a new game from scratch then I think I'm gonna have to let this go

If it's anything like games I know for certain, once you enable console and save the game, the save and all saves following that become tainted and all hope is lost ^^

Indeed. Console has to be disabled from the start. It would be too easy to allow console, run through the game on cheats and disable it right before the end :P

EDIT: althought it is possible to enable console without affecting achievements (via config file editing)

Then explain how I was able to get all the achievements until now with no problems, even beating the game on any difficulty. No message or anything ever appeared until just now, when I beat Ultra Nightmare. Thing is, it only shows the message when I press the final button just like OP. Does this♥♥♥♥♥♥only happen on Ultra Nightmare or certain difficulties or something? Because I literally had NO problems on Easy with the console or achievements.
