I can't get git(hub) to work with Source Control
So my (small) team and I need to use Source Control to run effectively as a team. We decided on GitHub and I downloaded the Github Desktop client. Everything went smoothly, I already had a project in Unreal so I built a new repository in the folder using GitHub Desktop and committed the all changes. I then launched Unreal and tried to use the included beta Git plugin. I put in the git.exe directory (took forever to find lol) and then I got a weird error message: "Failed to enable Git Source Control: you need to initialize the project as a Git repository first". I'll admit, I'm a complete noob when it comes to Git (which is why I chose to use GitHub Desktop since it has a UI), but I thought I had just done that...
So after all that, I thought my worst fears had come true, that I'd have to use Git instead. So I deleted the repository from GitHub Desktop, and the .git folder from the project folder and downloaded and installed Git. I fired up the Git and navigated to the project folder (it made miss Linux a little) and ran "git init" and "git add .". I then when to Unreal and tried again. Same error message. I was then struck a mixture with relief that I could actually use GitHub Desktop and frustration that this isn't working. (I know, as a developer, I should be used to the feeling...)
After hours off googling and reattempts including creating new UE4 Projects and Git repos, I gave up and decided to ask the wonderful people of AnswerHub.
