    Each one better than the last! Are you going to taunt us with a 4th?

        I've been looking for a refresher course and this looks perfect! Will be buying the bundle tonight.
        I'm also wondering if there's plans for more in the series.

        I noticed in the preview that James had Subversion installed, it would be great if you covered a recommended version control workflow for collaborative projects.
        (e.g. what files should be version controled, recommended contents/structure of packages for version control, what other files should be locked when editing maps, etc)
        All the UDK subversion guides I've seen have just told you how to setup the repository.

        I don't know how popular that topic would be though since it mostly concerns groups rather than individuals. I'm just registering my interest.

        Many thanks for this guys!
        Has anyone ever told you how kick-@$$ your intro music is by the way?

          I talked about our SVN setup here at Digital Confectioners in this thread.

          I recommend Subversion with Tortoise SVN but that is just a personal taste. Perforce is also a possible option, now that it is free for a good number of seats.

            I thought about using two repos, but I wanted to keep it simple for the end user and my chosen Project Management System only supports one repo per project.
            But I'd never heard of svn:externals before! Thanks, this is definitely worth looking into!

            I didn't know that Perforce was now free for the 1st 20 users either. I recall reading somewhere that UDK had native Perforce integration which is tempting, but unfortunately my team is bigger than 20. Having said that, I've just read that there is one SCC plugin that works, so I'll have to give that a go. I want to keep version control as simple as possible since most of my team haven't used it before.

            Thanks again!

              Hi James,

              I've come across an issue when trying to pick up the first bomb and the screen freezes just as I approach the bomb, then it crashes!
              Not sure if its something to do with the way I've set it up. The one thing I did differently from you because I'm not using visual studio was to just overwrite the ini files with the ones in the eat3d folder, could that be a problem ?
              I'm using Windows 7 64 bit,
              AMD black edition Quad core chip,
              ATI 5 series Graphics card,
              6 gig ram,
              8 terabytes hard drives

              Any possible suggestions would be great

                It depends on what UDK version you're using. Using the wrong set of ini files with the wrong UDK version can cause problems.

                  Thanks for the quick response.I've narrowed it down to the berserk pick-up, not the bomb. I'm using the March 2012 build and going over the tutorials I realise you did make some alterations to the ini's
                  Its clearly a dumb mistake on my behalf but luckily I had backed up the whole UDK directory and so now I'm going to go through the video with meticulous detail.

                  Thanks again for the speedy reply and I'll let you know on this thread when its running
