The E: That did the trick. I'm amazed. Unlike most things out there, this is a solid project. Everything just... works.
I do understand the reasoning about using github to allow lots of people to contribute to the engine. I just think at major releases it would be cool to release the solution files for major versions of vis studio for less experienced people like me who do know how to program and just want to fiddle with it as a hobby on our days off, instead of having to troubleshoot, install apps, get a headache, etc.
I noticed that the version it compiled was 3.7.5, probably because that was the zipped version on the github repository. How would I going about pulling the latest version, which is 3.8 right now yes?
