Sry to nekro this, after I already marked a solution.
I have been editing "game_variables.txt" and a few game textures, managed to get most of it out! yet my weapon symbol remains on the bottom right on my screen, for the life of me i cant find the texture or any reference of it in "game_variables.txt" . Ever came across it? or any other files I should look into? thnks again.
(EDIT) Nevermind, Solved it myself meanwhile* Moved offscreen "game_ui_container" inside of "game_variables.txt", that did the trick!
