Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

"GenerateProjectFiles.bat" gets no response

I followed the Tutorial to set up the source

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eBicuLV6TX8

I followed every single direction up until it said to use GenerateProjecFiles.bat.

It opens up the command prompt box and then a few lines appear within less than a second and it closes.

No error, No Exe or other files generated as the tutorial showed.

I'm running Windows 8.1 with VS 2013 Express (Desktop)

Is there any advice someone can give?

1 factor is. I downloaded everything and got it all ready, THEN installed the VS 2013 Express, then clicked the batch. If this is a Factor, I'm not sure, but it is worth mentioning.

Have you already compiled the engine?

There is currently an error with using the Git Hub zip file

you should fork instead

Update From Mike Fricker 8 hours ago

This issue should be resolved now. We added a .gitattributes file to GitHub that forces .bat files to retain their Windows-style line endings when source is downloaded from the zip file. Of course, you can always grab the code using a Git client and it will handle line endings correctly already

So this means

Solution

Re-download your 4.0.1 or Other Source .Zip file

you dont have to redownload the dependencies I dont think


just to make sure

DELETE your current GenerateProjectFiles

and redownload the source zip file

Enjoy!

Compiling was the issue, I've done a reboot (I posted this at work which was why it took so long)

Turns out the reboot configured something and now the issue works fine.

So I think I could chalk this up to not having VS Installed properly and rebooted before attempting to compile. User Error.
