You were doing it wrong then.

The only thing you need to do is edit the build command, changing "make" for "scons"

Potentially adding BF_FANCY=0 and BF_DEBUG=1 if those aren't in your user-config.

Setting up a new project takes less than 30s. If that's too long for you, you can just copy the .project from an existing branch if you want (regardless of the build engine used).
