i have GPL/driver 'names' for me as driver, for each of the different mods. but since i can't load a couple of them i thought i might as well delete them, and the driver.
but since i see the name in GEM and GPL and my win10 folder, i wonder if there's a required order in which they get deleted?
does it matter?
can i just go to win10 /gpl and delete the names/mod?
what about deleting them in gplSecrets? will deleting them from the game screen of GPL (where new drivers are created, there is a 'delete' option) delete all reference to the drivers?

i am hesitant to delete in some manner that corrupts GEM next time i load GEM :P
thanks!

Bo, AFAIK GEM+ merely reads the existing player name directories inside your GPL player directory.  So when you delete a player from within GPL, GEM+ won't ever use it again and is not affected itself.

Even though you delete a player in GPL you will find the player folder is still there in "players"

So after deleting the player in game go to players folder and remove what is left of the player.
