No 'Build' folder even after building in vs2017

Hi guys, I am following the .gitignore video. But mine is quite different and i’ve been struggling for a while to try to make sense of it.

Firstly I didn’t get a ‘Build’ folder even after right-click the Games folder in VS2017 and clicking Build.

Also, I have no ___.VC.db file, instead I found after searching online they are inside .vc folder, but in there I have many files (well 6 to be precise.)

I also read about the build folder… Someone said to ‘Package Project’ from within UE4. This kind of worked for me to get a built version of the game at my desired location, and also a ‘Build’ folder appeared in the project folders BUT it is only a few kb.

Can I gitignore the entire .vc folder? And is it normal now that I don’t get the Build folder until after I package project in UE4?

Thanks for any help or advice :smiley:

  1. Build is generated when you build a standalone game, it doesn’t matter that you don’t have it now you just don’t want it in your repo if/when it does because you don’t want to track those changes.
  2. All of Visual Studio’s generated files have moved .vs which you should ignore.

thank you for the concise answer. I worked a bit further through it and understand now.
