I am working on a team project, I’m the programmer and the other guy is a 3d modeler we’ve set up github. I started a empty unreal project in the github folder and made two blueprints based on C++ classes so the other guy can drag and drop them as hes making the levels. I commit using github desktop then hit sync and an hour later I get a error
An Error has Occurred You Might Need To Open A Shell and debug the state of this repo
or something like that, I really should have taken a screenshot in hindsight. I then went looking for answers and found a page on the unreal website that linked to a 2 year old video, in both the page and the video they tell me to Fork the unreal engine on github then clone it on my computer then download other files into the clone and at the end of the page and the video they “say you can now use unreal”
I already can do that I pressed a button and it downloaded then I pressed another button and it made a project, I press that one a dozen times now it was super easy. why would I do that will it help me upload to github it don’t make sense to me, my folder is 1.30GB and my unreal 12.5 folder is 18GB even if I don’t have to upload the 18GB because its already on github would I have to make a new Fork and new clone ever project I do with different people because that would take up a lot of space and be stupid. the page and video don’t say anything about working in a team like this person uploads this and then this person downloads it, isn’t that the point of github.
any was I look around some more then opened the github shell and used gitstatus
I don’t know what any of this means and I don’t know how to debug it, I’m using shell v2 apparently and it told me to upgrade to v3 I guess I can if it will help.
if someone can answer all the questions ever I would appreciate it, I’ll repeat them in case my ramblings are unclear
Question #1 what is my next step because I don’t even know
Question #2 can I do anything to get github desktop to work
Question #3 should I get unreal through the Fork in github, if it will help I’ll do it but I don’t want to spend time and run it to the same problem
Question #4 why would I want to do the unreal through the Fork in github think, for my own peace of mind
Question #5 how do I debug in github shell or how do I use github shell, I know very little about command line stuff. should I upgrade to gihub shell v3
Question #6 what is the true meaning of halloween
if you read this think you, if you reply to this I <3 U
it took way too long to make the C++ classes, it was the basics so we could get started and I can’t even upload it. I’m so tired
