    Exclamation problem with resource files

    Hello, once again I have a question!

    I am working through theForger's great tutorial and I am skipping

    the part about manually creating resource header and script files

    because I know how it's done, and it's not worth the effort.

    However, I wish to simply create my own menu and icon the

    same as the tutorial ones in the resource editor and it's going

    nuts when I try to save the files.

    I was under the impression that there would only be one

    .rc file with all the resources and one header containing the id's.

    Is that correct? Thanks in advance.

    Typically only one resource file and one header file is used. However, when dealing with large projects more may be used (so that reading the code becomes less tedious). Its really up to you and/or your resource editor. Many resource editors kinda go nuts with resource files though. They make a new resource for virtually everything in your project. But if the editor is handling the resources I really don't see the problem.
