-errors in the zsecs heads (relative to "black textures")

(To solve the problem in the heads of the zsecs in the Doom3, what you
have to do is rename the file pak000.pk4 in Doom3's "base" directory to .zip. Then,
from Windows Explorer (if you don't have XP you'll need WinZip), select the "def"
folder, which you'll have to extract from def_00.pk4 and drag it onto "pak000.zip".
In Winzip, when adding the files, check that the "Replace" option is checked. Then rename
"pak000.zip" back into "pak000.pk4" and you're set.
When you want to bring it back to normal, remember that there's a backup of the original
"pak000.pk4" file in Doom3 CD#2 (in the "setup\data\base" folder).
