    I have recently started work on a project involving the creation of 26 games plus other files. The team consists of 3 illustrators and 4 developers.
    As the project develops it is becoming harder to manage the files. Whos working on what and when? At the moment we have set up a central machine to store the most up to date files. People then "Book out" a file by writing their name on a list.

    My question is : Is there a better way to manage files, what is the standard practice in a large development house.

    Look into using MS Project. I belive there is a collaboration module to it, that will share project plans online. There should be a way to list project files, and mark them as 'checked out', as well as letting your developers note who worked last on that file and what they did.

    You might also consider Visual Source Safe or WebDAV.

    we use CVS, it works over the network and it creates a central cache of all the files, you then access them through your own drives and when you make a change it books it back into the depository and everyone else can update their copies, it will telly ou if there are conflicts as well. I think it keeps records of old fversions too if you want. May be a little hard to set up but it is worthwhile.
