Do I need the source code

Hi Im new to unreal. Do I need to download the source code from github in order to make games using C++?

My solution doesnt contain the same folders as the video “intro to programming” had :S
Google failed me too.


No, you don’t need it. You have to create a project using the project wizard in ue4 editor. And then just open the project folder, and the solution. To add new code files, just go into the editor, and click file-> add new code

Oh right thanks for the reply

Using the github version is incredible helpful though as you can quickly look up what something does in all detail and find usage examples for it in other files.

You don’t need the source code but you will need Microsoft visual studio (you can get the free express version).

No to mention you get pdb files to engine’s dll files which is very helpful in debugging
