http://unlagged.com/tools/cfgweed/

Quake III Arena and other games based on its engine has a bug/feature that causes configuration files (aka "configs") of differends game modifications (aka "MODs") to be cross-contaminated with settings from other MODs.
This has nasty effects such as crashes with

Recursive error after: MAX_CVARS

error and variables (aka "CVARs") that have no effect, confusing gamers who are trying to tweak their settings. This script is designed to compare current, "contaminated" config with a "native" config, i.e. one containing only mod-specific variables and weed out foreign CVARs, preserving the original values/settings from the contaminated config.

To clean up your config:

1) Clean your q3config.cfg using the tool above

2) Copy it to my.cfg

3) Delete all text from q3config.cfg and add one line:
exec my.cfg

4) Make q3config.cfg read-only (right-click in windows, Properties)


Good

I wouldn't be surprized if it happened to me!

So how does one fix a problem like this? or keeping it from happening?
