Yay! Bioware managed to break "hide head slot" in 1.4. Good job guys!

#10 9/26/2012 10:08:00 AMWe're adding this to known issues right now, but essentially:
The “Hide Head Slot” does not function properly when toggled in the options menu (Preferences > Social).
Workaround: The toggle works correctly when selected from the Customize Appearance button on the bottom right corner of the Character Window.
#25 9/26/2012 12:57:00 PMA guild mate has informed me that even this appears to be broken. Once you enter a cutscene, the companion's helmet is shown on despite the setting from the character menu, and when you exit from the cutscene, it stays on despite the setting from the character window saying it should be off.
