My apologies - I was rudely vague in the details, making it impossible for you
to comment sensibly.

> Which game is this?
Doom 3 1.3 on Linux.

> What do you mean by "missing entries"?
This was my ignorance.  I had supposed that the paths specified in the
configuration files corresponded to real filesystem entities; I now realise that
this isn't the case.

Yes, I realise this now.  I was looking for an entry in the unpacked files which
was 'lights/alarm_strobe' - of course, it doesn't work this way. (see below)

FYI:  I use svn to update from the source tree on Linux.  I don't really use XP,
though I have a system to check out problems for clients.

Yes.  I'm beginning to get a picture of how many items are inconsistent in the
retail PAK files.  Is there any way of cleaning the system up so that there is
less confusion?

I'm designing a website which will attempt to address these and other issues.  I
would be grateful if you would take some time to explain some of the issues
mentioned here.  You might be interested in the thread I started:

In any event - I acknowledge that my query was born out of ignorance and I shall
change the resolution to INVALID on my next visit.  May I ask advice on your
email address rather than clogging up bugzilla?
