I was playing through Doom3 again today, when I noticed a graphical oddity. I noticed that on glass in the game, blood would show on one side of the glass and not another. Here are some screenshots to illustrate.

On this side of the glass there is no blood.

On this side of the glass there is blood.

Does anyone have any ideas as to why?

That's just because the blood is a transparent texture on a patch mesh, and they seem to have forgotten to make one facing the other way as well. Or perhaps they intended it to be like that. In any case, it's not a graphical glitch.

....i remember going around the first bit shooting the guys against the glass and blood would appear on both sides...

might be subject to that individual area...
