Global variable fatal error

I am stopped by the program when trying to delete a global variable

Why delete? Change its value!

I don’t need that variable anymore, and I want to remove it from the game

You cannot remove a variable, because if a variable doesn’t exist, its value is 0 (therefore, it exists :upside_down_face:).
So you should change its value to zero, as said above.

I keep closing the program when deleting a global variable

This looks like a bug.

From reading your original post I thought you wanted to remove a global variable during game play - and my first reaction was the same as @FreakishSky96.

In fact you are in the IDE and use the remove button to get rid of that variable. For whatever reason there is a runtime error. I cannot fix that error, but as a workaround you could close GDevelop and open game.json in any text editor to remove the corresponding line.

@all Is there some documentation of the structure of this json file?

Can you report the issue on github please, with the button after the crash.
And add the link of your video with it.
