how do i do this? its stupid and i have other sav files not from gmod.
You can, (I think) Right click on the .SAV file and open as, then it’ll show a list of other programs you can browse to.
On the bottom you’ll see a check mark that says “Always open as”, or something related to that.
but when i open gmod every time it goes back to associating with garrys mod.
EDIT: nvm it worked, i just had to associate it to something. i kept unassociating it. i just made it open with notepad++ and gmod stops changing it
