About this mod

Alters material tinting to hopefully more closely resemble what the inventory claims they are.

Permissions and credits
So I was playing around with some files and realized, "hm, most equipment looks kind of samey, I wonder what I could do about the tints to spruce that up".
Turns out, quite a little bit.
To the best of my ability, I went and altered material tint associations. I am releasing this as a beta version so far since I have not been able to test all possible materials yet and there may be some hiccups - some material choices were more intuitive than others.
Unzip the sole file to your %userprofile%\Bioware\Dragon Age 2\packages\core\override\ folder to install.
Uninstall by deleting item_materials_fixed.gda from the override folder. This can be done at any point in the game without foreseeable consequences.
Do report if you find any oddities.

In the future, I hope I may find a feasible method of expanding the range of available materials to DAO or even DAI levels, which could reasonably give greater amounts of customizability options - if those new materials can be sensibly distributed, at any rate.

V0.9 update: Wooden materials altered so that bows with tint mapping don't almost all appear a garish purple tone.

EDIT: I'd personally recommend utilizing Shanamah's alternate take over this.
