Things aren't shiny anymore

SOLVED, TURNS OUT I’M JUST STUPID! CLOSE THIS PLEASE!

First of all I’m sure I’m running in DX9 mode, so that’s probably not the problem.

But materials that have a shiny sheen (like black_chrome, chrome, and other metallic textures) have lost their shine. black_chrome and chrome respectively are plain old solid black.
I haven’t played Garry’s Mod in a few weeks, so I’m not sure what could have happened.

This is all I can offer, if you need any other info I will supply it.

Enter “mat_specular 1” in the console.

Ah crap, that’s right, I had turned it off last time I played because something messed up on a poorly made map…
I just forgot I did that.

Thanks. (for helping me realize I’m a goldfish :suicide:)
