"Could not be compiled. Try rebuilding from source manually."

So I downloaded this file.

It seems like the perfect file to practice audio design, but I cannot, for the life of me, figure out how to convert the landscape to phys mat so that I can create audible footsteps.

I then read somewhere this was a bug that was fixed in recent versions.

The file will not update to 4.25. It comes up with numerous problems, and finally getting Visual Studio to play nicely, it throws a few error codes when trying to recompile the plugins.

I’ve been at this for hours and hours today. I’m at wit’s end. I’m not proficient in C++ or even Unreal; so I don’t even know if I’ve been on a wild goose chase all day. My best guess is the issue stems from C++.

Any help here?

4.19 to 4.25 is a huge leap, there’s been a lot of API breaking changes (IWYU, FProperty, etc). You’re going to need to manually fix those compile errors to get it to work in 4.25.

Thanks. Disappointingly enough, that’s way above where I probably will ever be, since I’m interested in audio design. Oh well!
