It can't be the lighting, since they are gold no matter how you look at them.
My settings are something like this:
high texture quality, 8x anisotropic filtering, 4x AA.
This is weird...
Could it be something with the shiny metal texture?
The lighting is actually the culprit. These "golden sith" only appear if the brightness is turned down, and there's a bug in KOTOR that makes the brightness reset itself after the cutscenes...
Still, I got myself some chromey sith now. Cool!
I can still see the gold.
Could someone that doesn't have this problem please send me their cm_baremetal file?
