    Default Using resources on Android?

    Hi, Gravity Games here. I've been working on my level format and I put a .txt file in my app project's res folder. For some reason, I can't load it with the File command, even though I entered the path name correctly ("res/levels/w1-1.txt"). I've tried "levels/w1-1.txt" and res//levels//w1-1.txt" and I even tried leaving off the file extension. What am I missing?

    EDIT: Nevermind, apparantly when I reference files in this way, I should put them in the assets folder instead...
