When I build any proyect, even when I build a new project, the whole enigne rebuild each time.
Even I has tried to install a new Windows installation in a new computer that only holds the Unreal Engine, Visual Studio and Git and CMake tools, and GPU drivers installed. No games, no other apps.
If someone can tell me what I’m doing bad I would be very gratefull:
To install the engine I do:
[li]Download the engine from github with “git clone” in the SSD drive.[/li][li]Run the Setup.bat and GenerateProject.bat[/li][li]Open the UE4.sln file[/li][li]Select Buid > Build Solution (take almost 4-5 hours to complete.[/li][/ul]To run the engine I try two ways: [ol]
[li]Running from Visual Studio with Debug > Start Debugging[/li][li]Open with double click the file at Engine/Binaries/Win64/UnrealEditor.exe[/li][li]Then I wait to complete all shader compiles.[/li][/ol]
To run a existing project: [ol]
[li]For example, to running the ShooterGame example, I first download it from Epic Games Launcher to SSD.[/li][li]Generate Visual Studio Project Files clicking in the .uproject file[/li][li]Open the solution and compile.[/li][li]This recompile a big part of the engine.[/li][li]When finish and the project it’s opened, I close it and delete the next folders in the project:[LIST=1][/li][li]Binaries[/li][li]Intermediate[/li][li]Saved[/li][li].vs[/li][li]*.sln[/li][/ol]
[li]And then generate a visual studio solution again, open the sln again and build again:[/li][li]This repeat the engine building that takes a lot of time (1 hour)[/li][/LIST]To run a new project: [ol]
[li]Open Unreal Engine from .exe and from Visual Studio (both with the same result)[/li][li]Create a new C++ project.[/li][li]The new project takes 352 seconds in generate the new project (with a installed engine this takes no more than 1-2 minutes)[/li][li]When finish, I run with Debug > Start Debugging[/li][li]This takes around others 10 minutes to load DLLs[/li][li]When open the project, I close it, and delete the sames folders that I did in “To run existing project”:[/li][li]Generate again the solution and buld again: this takes others 30-60 minutes and the same process of DLLs.[/li][/ol] How the people works with the engine when download from Github?
I followed the complete guide to install Visual Studio, including the install of Visual Assist, VS Unreal and the options in visual studio to not show some errors.
Thank so much
