Cannot recognize or load txt files

I have been trying to create a message system for a text based game. I would like to use simple notepad files to organize the text to be displayed. I am very new to Godot, so perhaps I am missing something, but when I create a txt file and save it in the resource folder for my project, it does not show up.

Even when I use the path to force it to load, it simply does not find the file.

What am I missing?

Godot won’t show any unrecognized file types, and that includes .txt files. The file is still there, though, and you can load it as a file.

Make sure to go to the second tab in export settings and put in *.txt for the export as well, though, since .txt files are not exported by default.
