Updates/Reinstallation erased variables

This is pretty concerning, I lost all my globalized variables when I reinstalled gamecreator.....is that supposed to happen? : /

Game Creator version:
By Design

Uninstalling Game Creator, unless you deleted the Plugins/GameCreatorData folder, shouldn't affect the Global Variables. However, there's a chance that the scriptable objects containing the Global Variables, because they couldn't find the class that contains the data, they were lost.

Another cause could be if you installed the Example scene. I try not to include Global Variables in example modules, because these override the current global ones with the necessary.

This is something I'm aware and I've taken the steps to change how Global Variables work for the next major iteration.

However, meanwhile, uninstalling and installing an example module will (might in some cases) remove Global Variables.

I'm marking this as By Design, because it's how Global Variables work. It's a day-1 feature and at that time, I wasn't expecting to create modules surrounding Game Creator. I hope you had a backup :-$
