Default Re: Some graphics not rendering properly (skeleton)

Okay, I've only been able to test this workaround on two systems, but it seems to be working. From what I can tell, for whatever reason, your cards weren't found in the override files, and as a result, all of the fallbacks were getting horked.

I'm going to be looking at this some more this weekend, but in the meantime, some of you should be able to fix this by doing the following:

Go to your C:\Program Files\Steam\SteamApps\[username]\sin episodes emergence\bin folder.
Delete the file vidcfg.bin. (Don't worry, it will get re-created later.)
Open your Steam Games list.
Right-click on "SiN Episodes: Emergence" and pick "Create desktop shortcut".
Right-click on the shortcut and add pick "Properties...".
Add "-dxlevel 90" to the end of the "Target" window, so the full string looks like this:

"C:\Program Files\Steam\Steam.exe" -applaunch 1300 -dxlevel 90

Run that shortcut once. When you get to the main menu, exit out, delete the desktop shortcut, and relaunch from the Steam games list.

That fixed it on two machines here, but there is no guarantee that this will work for everyone until I do some further testing.
