I'm on Taris, and every time I see a Sith soldier, he looks like this:

I'm not sure where to find my graphics card specs, but I think it's a 64MB, and it came with the computer, so it's probably an INTEL.
I can't check the image file itself, as KOTOR Tool won't open anything.

Hmmm... with very old graphics cards, some skins and other things in KOTOR will not work properly. You said you have a 64 MB card? That's a very old one. This is a skin you downloaded, right? Not how the Sith look naturally?

Also, you might want to have posted this at Holowan. That's where modding is discussed.

I didn't download any skins. This is how it displays the normal Sith soldier skin.
My Override folder is empty, BTW, excpt for a few mods that I know are unrelated. Trust me, they're unrelated to skins.
This has nothing to do with mods. That's why I put it here ;)

Hmmm... was it always like that? Or has it just started?

Next, do you have a file named N_SithSoldier01 or N_SithSoldier03 in your override?

It has always been that way since I got a new computer upstairs.
I have no skins named N_SithSoldier in their, but I do have two called T7_chrome and T7_chrome1. Could they be the problem?
I'm also wondering if it could be my drivers. I will update them (if I can figure out how - I may be a Time Lord, but Earth technology is outrageously confusing).

EDIT: I jsut tryed upgradeing my graphics drivers, but their was no update available. Should I roll back?

No, the T7 files aren't your problem. I think I know what it is know. After looking at the files for the Sith soldier skins in KOTOR tool, that's actually how they look naturally. However, a baremetal texture is applied that causes them to look shiny. Most graphics cards can handle it, but in your case, your graphics card isn't quite good enough. However, all is not lost! Go the workbench, and post your problem there; there is probably a means to solve it.

Thank you, Devon. Your help will not go forgotten when the day of your trial in front of the Time Lords comes.

Trial? I am the Dark Lord of the Sith! No one trials me! My power surpasses that of the Time Lords so greatly that no one save I can even imagine it!

The Time Lords will always exist. You cannot avoid their judgment. You will be stopped, Devon.
