Project files visible in Windows Explorer but not in Editor?!

I got a project from a friend. I’m on the right version and everything.

But when I open the project itself, the are no assets/files in the Content Browser – just folders!

What gives? I’m opening his project directly.

Thanks in advance!

How did you transfer the project? When you say opening directly do you mean by double clicking it in file explorer? Double check with friend that you’re both using the same version of UE4. I had this issue once when migrating some assets from a project that was UE4.23 to a project that was UE4.22

Hi @Mach45 . It turns out, I was downloading the GIT project, but they weren’t the actual game files. These GIT files are just kind of metadata. GIT is weird.

Thanks for the reply and tips!
