Editor asking me to save files that don't need to be saved?
Every time I "save all modified assets" in the content browser I see the same 3 files show up, even if I already saved them. They will stay saved unless I run the game. Every time I run the game, I have to save these files again even if I made no changes to them.
Edit: If I play a standalone game, then I don't need to re-save, but playing in a new editor window or the current editor window, I see the asterisk on my asset as soon as I launch it.

I see you're doing some casting in this Blueprint, so I think I see the cause of the problem. When you save a BP that casts to another BP, that second BP becomes "dirty." A dirty BP asset isn't counted as a modified asset, so when you Save All Modified Assets those dirty assets won't be included.
I'm guessing you cast to this HUD BP from another BP, and the same is true for all 3 assets this occurs with. If that's the case, try using File > Save All and see if that solves the problem. Let me know if it still happens after trying that.
