    I'm just getting started in this and right of the bat things are going well. 1st' I tried uninstall reinstall notepad app same, then I tried note++ same, microsoft support useless. So here I'm dead in water bummed out because I was excited to get started in this new skill. All help is appreciated.

    Thats because data.acd is a package of files, can't simply open it in notepad. You need to extract it, either with Content Manager or other tools that can do this.

    Yup, once you unpack, you’ll get a data folder with all the files in it. Then you can delete the acd file, the game will work fine with just the data folder
