Blackface bug fix for Geonox's "High Res Face Maps for Men"
http://skyrim.nexusmods.com/downloads/file.php?id=4141

NOTE: Please uninstall Geonox's face mod before installing this version. This is a standalone mod and contains all files necessary.

As someone who wanted to play with Geonox's fantastic Male Face mod but found themselves blighted with the Blackface bug I thought Id have a go at fixing it. The main problem seemed to be that the extreme size of the face resolution (each face file was 21MB) was causing a failure to load them, much in the same way of the pink/purple texture error, however as theres a shadow layer underneath the faces it would result in black faces.

To fix it I have simply reduced the size of the face textures by 50%, and used a lower BPP (bits per pixel) rate.

There are now three seperate versions available for download in varying levels of resolution/bpp. The Old version, the 16bpp version and a high end 32bpp version.

Version 1, the original file listed under "Old" will be the safest bet in not experiencing the bug for people with low end machines however it does suffer from somewhat blocky faces.

Version 2 is listed as the main file, its graphic quality is vastly improved from the old version and does not suffer from blocky faces.

Version 3 has the best quality (except for using Geonox's original version) and again does not suffer from blocky faces. I have listed it as optional purely as I believe some low end machines may not be able to run this version without again re-experiencing the blackface bug as the file sizes are quite large.

Obviously if you continue to experience blackface bugs while using one of the higher quality versions, I'd suggest using the next file down.

Please comment if you use this file and still are experiencing the blackface bug, also it would be great if you could state if you are using any other face texture mods.
