Restores missing specular data to Hi-Res Texture Pack version of the Daedric Shield.

The hi-res texture pack omits specular information usually stored in the alpha channel of the game's normal maps for the Daedric Shield. This results in the shield having a vaguely overall chrome-like effect that's inconsistent with other craftable Daedric items, as well as with its own low-res version. I've addressed this error with a basic texture patch, which simply adds in the missing data.

I've also taken the liberty of painting the runes on the Daedric Shield a dark red. I've always felt a touch of red was a visual element common to Daedric items that was conspicuously missing from the shield, and I think this treatment is sufficiently understated that it doesn't alter the tone of the original art.

Does anyone know what the runes on the shield mean? I haven't been able to match them to any Daedric alphabet that I can find.

This is my favourite item that I've found so far in the game, Inigo looks so bad-ass with it!

The Unofficial High-Res Patch makes this one not needed, but I still use it anyway for the red runes you painted on. Nice job :)

Which was why I said "oddly, this one". I know there's no reason it should have caused it to be doing that. The only thing I could come up with, which also doesn't make sense, is maybe I have another mod that alters daedric armor (I was wearing a full suit including the shield, which was the only reason I tried turning it off), and it appears to be different from what I remember. I don't have any mods that specifically retexture daedric, though, so I don't know where it could be coming from. :-\ I really do like the look of your shield. I don't think it is, in reality, your mod that's at fault. I once had a bunch of player houses installed, but when Bethesda pushed their patch to prepare for Hearthfire, every single one of them was causing CTDs when I loaded the game. It's possible what I'm seeing is actually caused by a combination of things.

On the surface, that doesn't make much sense. The only thing in here are a couple of .dds files.

I reloaded my game after installing several mods over a few months' period of otherwise inactivity, and was getting a very strange effect where my screen would pop to black, then fade back in, and I could not get out of the sneak position, though the game didn't think I was sneaking and would not let me begin to sneak for actually hiding from enemies. After turning all sorts of mods on and off, I finally traced it down to, oddly, this one. I'm not sure why it caused a problem, but without it, and only it, running, I have no problems. Uninstalling, though I would've liked to have seen this.
