ERROR: Unable to compile source files.

Why do your files in Source have ._? e.g.

._BullCowGame.Target.cs
._BullCowGameEditor.Target.cs
._BullCowGame.Build.cs

Are all of the files like that?

Looks like it. Don’t know why is that.

obraz

i’ve looked on windows and here’s how the files look like. tried to run the project, but it also dont work

Are you dual booting? How did you extract the zip?
