Question - IDE [RESOLVED] GMS2 trying to loaded deleted files


I'm greeted with this message when opening my GMS2 project: "Resource load failures encountered..."

Well, those resources have been deleted, so of course of it can't load them. But how can I get it to stop trying to load them?

Have you tried using "Save As" and saving it as a different named project? That should clean any file that have been left over like this...
Was able to figure out when I found this topic I had missed: https://forum.yoyogames.com/index.php?threads/failed-to-load-resource.51030/

Had to open the yyp file in Notepad++ and get rid of certain hex keys and wot-not like its 1999.

Found every file that was giving the error and deleted it from the code. We good now.

Didn't get a chance to try Save As, but not sure I'd wanna do that with the git integration I have. I'm a git noob and I'm very sheepish about messing it. Lord knows good simple git tutorials written for people that didn't come out of the womb coding software is quite hard.

But we good. Issue resolved.
