Known issues (old):

For any non-english version of Doom3, the name of the new flare item will not be displayed correctly
on the HUD. It needs to be translated first...

Here is how to fix this minor issue:

- Open the zpak000.pk4 with any software that supports .zip format.
- Open the file .lang inside the "strings" directory with any text editor.
- Add the following line: "#str_01422b" "Flares".

That's it!

Note from Dafama...: This bug is already fixed and we, the users don't need to do anything said in
the original previous known issues section.
