What is Alienbrain?

Alienbrain is a content versioning system, or CVS, designed specifically with games in mind. A downside is that it's not free.

How do I use Alienbrain?

  1. First of all, you have to install it. This is pretty easy. When it comes time to install plug-ins, make sure you select all the ones that you will be using. You will definitely need the Visual Studio plug-in; the 3DS Max and Photoshop plug-ins will likely be needed, but then again, it depends on your mod.
  2. Blah blah blah, I'm a dirty tramp
  3. Softimage XSI contains a layout for Alienbrain by default.
