Perforce Software announced that the company's Fast Software Configuration Management (SCM) System is being used by UK-based Rocksteady Studios. Rocksteady has most recently used Perforce to manage development of Urban Chaos: Riot Response, which was released in Europe in May, and most recently in North America on June 13 for both the Xbox and PlayStation 2. Perforce's SCM System tracks and manages source code, documents, and digital asset development for software production environments. Rocksteady developers chose Perforce because of its reputation within the games community as a proven solution for digital asset management. Sefton Hill, Director of Rocksteady Studios, said “The games industry is ruthless. Games have to be delivered to market on time without any compromise in quality or performance. Perforce’s high performance and no-nonsense approach to source code and asset management plays an important role in helping us to achieve that.” He added: “Perforce’s reliability, speed and ability to support sudden changes in our development process helps ensure the timely delivery of properly developed and thoroughly tested products.” Rocksteady developers rely on Perforce’s branching capabilities to manage parallel development. Branches are created from the main codeline when new features or fixes are undertaken. Perforce enables developers to selectively propagate individual changes between code branches, ensuring that unstable features or fixes are not propagated, and that stable builds can be produced early and often. In addition, Perforce provides easy access to project and file history, enabling Rocksteady managers to quickly view and report on a project’s progress.
