Development Tips


This is used for checking compatibility between sim and agents and will update automatically after building in Unreal. Please check it in. Also if you make a backwards incompatible change, i.e. to the shared memory interface, bump the minor version in the MAJOR_MINOR_VERSION file.

Clean builds
