Hello ladies and gentlemen!
Before all you read this.
I don’t expect understanding, nor a response from a Team Member;
I appreciate all the effort made !
I recently have joined Unreal Engine, hoping that I would be able to program C++ out of the box.
Sadly I was heavily disappointed, but I don’t wanna give up.
Before even writing a simple line of “Hello World”, I had various problems.
Using Visual Studio; Syntax Highlighting & Code Completion is completely broken, once I open this project.
Relaying on paid alternatives, e.g Jetbrains Rider (For Unreal Engine), is a shame.
It can’t be, that getting started feels highly unpleasant.
Due those reasons, it forces the use of Blueprints.
Getting Started: C++ Gameplay Programming References
Is broken, and the feedback site is “deactivated”.
The Online Courses
Are completely elongated; In fact, all learn resources are spread over several sites.
Which makes it hard, to find a connection.
Besides that, it DOES cover the setup of Visual Studio.
But it seems outdated, and it doesn’t have any troubleshoot or any FAQ.
There are several Community Resources, providing an alternative.
For example VSC, via VSCode/UE Intellisense
Which doesn’t help the Visual Studio Users.
Once again; Thanks for your time.
But please understand, that I’m highly frustrated.
I wanna prevent that newcomers suffer the same.
I’m even willing to spent time, improving those given facts.
It can’t be that a well known Company fights with those problems; Relaying on Community made alternatives.
