    Default Ever wondered why your Spanish Jinetes have no shields?

    If you ever looked, and ever cared, those Spanish Jinetes in MTW:VI don't show any shields in battle, even though they should. This is all down to a single spelling mistake in the original install.

    Navigate to /Textures/Men/Items/Shield1/SpanishJinettes

    and change it to /Textures/Men/Items/Shield1/SpanishJinetes

    then you will see Jinetes with the little round shields they were always supposed to have. It seems strange CA got it right for the weapons but messed up on the shields, but there you go....

    It doesn't stop them being irritating b******s when they're showering your flanks wih javelins, but at least they will finally look right

    So that's why!

    Thank you macsen for solving a bug that's about 19 years old.

    That is probably a '1am posting' thing Shield2 sounds right, folks...
