Honestly I have no idea how this can happen because it doesn't seem to make sense to me..
Basically I loaded a game with show race menu open and some options all stuffed up because I just wanted to play around with it for a minute and then without closing the show race menu I loaded up an earlier save of my character..
Only his appearance has changed to what was set in the open show race menu in the other save.. and every other save of that character has had the same thing happen..
I don't know how this can even happen though, why would *loading* a save with the showracemenu open change the face of like ten different saves even if they are from the same character? How would it know?
