I am entertaining the idea of using LY in my class. I have been researching the engine for a couple of years. I have been impressed with the evolution of the engine. I found creating and building new projects to be difficult to me. I am using 1.27 and tried on 2 computers; one using VS2017 and the other VS2019. I left them overnight, only to find them not complete this morning. I think it is hanging up on the gems however the log file on a previous attempt on 1.26 highlighted the cry3dengine_WAF file as missing even though it is in the directory. Not sure how to proceed. Can anyone point me in the right direction?
Disclosure: I am a high school teacher and not a developer, so I am at level 0 in experience. I want to gain competency to teach the engine to my class in the fall semester.
