Shield overlay in Zerg?

I just enabled shields for Zerg in DatEdit. But shield overlay isn't displayed. How do I put shield overlays for Zerg?

I just played Starcraft SOR mod which Kerrigan got a shield overlay.

Seems to work just fine for me when I check the enable shields box for a zergling (the unit I tested).

What exactly are you doing? Mind sharing your mod?

fuck you all

I checked out of Shield GFX in each Zerg in images. Zerg units, including Terran Civilian and Khaydarin Crystal formation has no shield overlay.

Did you check the "Enable" box next to shields in unit's dat basic? That's basically all I did and I got a zergling to have shield overlays. I did not change anything in the GFX...

fuck you all

I think it may be about the wireframe.
Tested just now, enabling shield gave Terran Kerrigan the blue glow on the wireframe, but Infested Kerrigan had nothing (didn't test other zergs), so that may be the point.

The zerg wireframe images lack the bluish border, they can't show shields. You would have to edit them.

Oh_Man -- Anyone who is interested in ARPG game design this is a must read. Wyatt Cheng from Blizzard went into some juicy gos on the game design decisions of D3 including scrapped mechanics and post launch. Very interesting.
