Title: Load Text Asset From Resources
Post by: zaskaggs on February 20, 2014, 04:29:21 PM
What I'd like to do is find a text asset from Resources and save it as a string. As far as I can tell this isn't covered by any existing actions.

Something like the 'Resources Load'  but for text assets.

Is this possible?

You want it to read a text file and put it into a string? The entire file into 1 line? Or a array of 1 string per line?

An array would be ideal. I'd be thrilled to have a modified version of the 'Split Text To Array List' action that let me point to a text file stored in the Resources folder, as opposed to manually tying it to one.

Hi,

 Use first ResourceLoad action:

Unless I'm mistaken this action only supports GameObjects, Textures and Materials doesn't it?
