I am having trouble using assets from blender 2.79b I personally made for a project. I made sure the user preferences and add-ons in 2.81 were the same ones I used in the older files. Screenshot is what I see when I open an older file. I made sure all files were there and mapped accordingly. There is about 2 hundred images parented into this scene. This problem appears in all of my other .blend files last saved in version 2.79b.
Is there something I am overlooking? Or am I going to have to re-import all images and rig everything back up to use these assets? I can provide more images if needed.
