[Solved] What can be causing the game to show the deleted images?

#1 Post by Nanahs » Thu Mar 07, 2019 4:00 pm

I copied my game's folder to make another version of it translated to another language.

I deleted the image that had texts in English and replaced it with the one that was translated to another language.
The weird thing is that when I click on that label, for 1 second it shows the image in English then it changes to the translated one.

Like, how is that even possible? I deleted the image in english. How can it keep showing up? :lol:

I even created a new folder and renamed the image (and changed it in the code), but it keeps happening.

I have no idea what be causing it, since it makes no sense hah

It's hapenning with all translated images I replaced. But the weird thing is that I really deleted the ones in English.

Like, let's just say there's a folder called "Game English" and another one called "Game Translated" (it was a copy and I renamed).

Even the pictures inside "Game Translated" being the translated ones, it keeps using the images of "Game English" :?: :?:

Is the game "recognizing" the first version's folder and not the copy? It's weird :oops: :?: :?:

Thanks.

Are you refreshing the game with shift + R or completely relaunching it?
Images are read into RAM so if you're just refreshing, it might be that the cached image is still the one you deleted.

No, I really relauched it. I even restarted my computer and nothing changed.
It's like it doesn't matter what I do, it only recognizes the images from the another version folder :?: :?:

I renamed an image and also changed it in the code. Now it's showing the translated one.
I guess I'll have to do it with all images.
