When duplicating an asset (object, room, note, etc.), ends up creating an extra yy file with incorrect filename. It then gets carried forward indefinitely each time the asset is duplicated.
- Create a room. Call it RoomA.
- Observe project "rooms" folder now contains a RoomA folder with a RoomA.yy file within it.
- Duplicate RoomA. Don't rename it, press Enter to accept default name. GMS will name it RoomA2.
- Observe project "rooms" folder now contains a new folder called RoomA2, but within it is a file named RoomA.yy. This doesn't seem right.
- Go back to the Room editor and change the width of the room to something different and then save.
- Observe project "rooms" folder. Folder RoomA2 now contains TWO yy files. One named RoomA.yy and a new one named RoomA2.yy. The new file seems right, but the existence of RoomA.yy in the folder still doesn't seem right.
- From this point onward, any further changes to the room asset will result in updates to the RoomA2.yy file while RoomA.yy remains untouched. (Note: renaming RoomA2 to something else causes all files within the RoomA2 folder to update, including the strangely named file.)
- You can keep going if you'd like... duplicate RoomA2 and follow the above steps again. You'll observe that the new room's folder will contain copies of the other 2 yy files and will generate a THIRD yy file. And so on.
