I have VS 2013, 2015 and 2017 installed (for historical reasons).


#2

I had the same issue and nobody else in the active chats seemed to have the issue or had any tips. I just ended up building the vsix file from the source, which worked fine. I think we need to make the vsix available as a direct link honestly.


#3

Thanks, Tom. I did try a sample project and it seemed to compile and run from Visual Studio, so it looks like at least at some level things are fine. I frankly have no idea what the plugin is supposed to do.


#4

The biggest thing the plugin does from what I’ve seen is compile XKSL into HLSL files, which is a HUGE benefit when writing your own shaders. It also adds some editor assistance with shader source, such as syntax highlighting and even some F12 go-to-definition assistance to jump into and see the source code for the engine’s shader files that you inherit from.


#5

Thanks. Good to know. At this point I’m only toying around, so I don’t really need this.
