Trying to build 2.83.6 release, but I can only get 2.83.7 beta, because that is what git checkout for the 2.83 release branch will give me.
I tried grabbing this
And throwing all of that into the git of 2.83.7 beta folder. It builds and runs, but there’s issues with it, that I am assuming are because of this weird replacement process I’m doing.
I tried using that 2.83.6 source download, by clicking on the make.bat, but it just brings up a cmd window for a blip of a second and closes again. Nevermind that it makes me download the lib files a second time. I noticed that it checks for spaces in the file path, so I removed those so it would at least run for a bit, but now that it downloaded some or all of the lib files it just opens and instantly closes again.
I’d rather just do what I always do, checkout the release branch for whatever version. But since, in 2.83’s case, that will give me the latest beta, that isn’t an option right now.
Ok, so here’s the error, I had to record my screen to see what it’s saying before instantly closing
checking out submodules
fatal: not a git repository (or any of the parent directories): .git
Which is really just extra annoying. All I want in the first place is for git checkout for 2.83 release to actually do what it says, give me the release, not the beta.
FIX for not a git repository is
