[SOLVED] Images in Materials reloading
Hello everyone,

Just testing Esenthel Engine for fun, found kind of bug.
1. Make material.
2. Attach some image (from file system or from project "image" object, doesn't matter) as Colour. For example located in "D:\Images"
3. Change image outside editor via some tool (paint, for example)
4. Press "Reload" on Material
5. Message box appears suggesting to reload original file which located in "". Yup, message box show me NO path to prevously attached image (D:\Images)
6. Press "Yes"
7. Nothing changes - colour image still the same

BUT if I change material somehow (flip normals, attach alpha chanel, etc.), engine correctly reload colour image too.

Doesn't seem to be native behaviour for me. Maybe I'm doing something wrong?

I use quite old version of Engine (from 05.02.2015)

Reload Material will work only if material was imported from a file.
To reload a texture, simply click on the texture slot in the material, and select the texture file again.
