Cull_face show me or internal or external face, i would like see both, based on the transparent texture.
I attach a screenshot of the problem.

Thanks for your reply, unfortunately depth_enable 0 doesn’t change the result, the same of my first post.

I think this has a simple solution, can anyone put me on the right way?

i think luke already gave you the solution: two instances of the object, one with @cull_face 1, the other with @cull_face 2
