I got so fed up with my low carry rate that I modified it via the console. Now the next zone I enter, I get a block-like drawing error on the loading screen. Then I notice a few more little quirks that I've never seen shortly thereafter.

Are there known side effects to using the console?

Jealous people playing on the 360 and PS3 that can't use the console. – Doozer Blake Nov 23 '11 at 6:29

The use of console commands can affect virtually anything in the game — that's what it's for. You're better off Googling for a list of console commands. – Ben Blank Dec 3 '11 at 20:26

I don't think player related console command would cause any graphical issues, unless you entered a wrong command by mistake, or just randomly encountered another bug right after using your console cheat.
