Exclamation Vertices not merging

Hey guys,

IÕm still on that same part of the G.I. texturing, but another problem has occurred. For some reason it has ÒunmergedÓ 2 pieces of my head from the main part. I donÕt really know why this happened, but I just tried to merge the vertices. Well, for some reason itÕs not letting me merge them. ItÕll only select 1 instead of both of the vertices, and when I move one out of the way, then shift select the other, and merge, nothing happens.

I think IÕve had this problem before, but I forgot how to fix it.

You might want to combine the 2 areas, mesh->combine then give it a go.

They already are combined. IÕve even tried separating them, but it doesnÕt work.

check the normals as if they are facing oppersit directions then the verts will not join

Well, now I feel like an idiot. In a last hope to try to get it working I tried combining again, but for some reason, it worked this time! Before in the SE it just said ÒObject is already one meshÓ, but this time it worked.
