BFG Edition Playershadow Head Glitch

This is a screenshot of the player's shadow from the DOOM 3 BFG Edition:




This is a screenshot of the player's shadow from the original DOOM 3:





So why is the BFG Edition's player shadow missing it's head when being projected? And how can this be fixed?

I'm assuming there's no head.   :o

I confirm the glitch:



I identified the issue to be within the New Player Head material shader "models/characters/player/playerhead" in "materials/characters.mtr". The shader key "twosided" is causing the lack of the Player Head Shadows... So simply commenting that material key out with  "//twosided" in the shader fixes Player Head Shadows for me in D3 BFG...

-1 more point for BFG Edition  :P

Try commenting out anything that has to do with shadows in that same shader definition in the material file until u find the solution. That 2 sided command should be commented out.
