Hi guys😃🖐!

I want to edit CRYENGINE source code . According to " ... ource+Code" texts, I did all the steps.

When I click on the " Configure " button , the following errors appear for me :
CMake Warning at Tools/CMake/BuildSandbox.cmake:2 (message):

Call Stack (most recent call first):
Tools/CMake/Build.cmake:43 (include)
CMakeLists.txt:3 (include)

CMake Error at Tools/CMake/Build.cmake:74 (get_property):

Call Stack (most recent call first):
Tools/CMake/Build.cmake:128 (generate_unit_test_targets)

I haven't built source code with sandbox editor. It needs some third party software installed.
Are you sure you need to build sandbox? If you exclude it, you can build the source code easily.

As game_dev5 explained, Sandbox requires the FBX SDK.
You can download the FBX SDK for free from Autodesk.
You will also need to install the MFC components for Visual Studio.

If you do not need to compile Sandbox, then you can untick this option in the CMake GUI.

If you need help installing the FBX SDK feel free to come back here and let us know how far you got/what you need to know.
