Perforce Access to HeroEngine
Perforce Access to HeroEngine is available for both Full Licensees or Source Code Licensees.
Source Control for HeroEngine development by the HeroEngine team is done using third-party source control software called Perforce (www.perforce.com). Full licensees have access to a subset of the HeroEngine Source code related to the Player Client primarily allowing them to rebrand the player client for their game. Source code licensees have access to a full branch in HeroEngine's Perforce depot. There is no requirement that you use Perforce beyond the necessity of installing the Perforce Client software to sync your companies branch in our Perforce depot to get the latest release.
You are free to choose whatever source control software fits your requirements.
If no one in your organization is familiar with Perforce usage we recommend getting a copy of "Practical Perforce" by Laura Wingerd (http://oreilly.com/catalog/9780596101855).
- Download and install the Perforce Client Software from the Perforce Download Center for your platform. Windows for 32-bit Intel is a good choice.
Accessing the Perforce depot
The perforce administrator on the HeroEngine team will send to the designated person at a licensee's organization the Perforce credentials (username and password, branch location) needed to access the licensed portions of the HeroEngine source code.
