I have a class project to write a game over the course of a month. It's a team project and I'm working with two other people. Fortunately, we're allowed to do it for any platform we want, so we'll be writing it for the Mac. Unfortunately, I've never really programmed in a team on the Mac before... what sort of version control software is good? I am used to using CVS for team assignments on Linux/UNIX. Thanks,

Subversion is my version control system of choice.

I like Subversion best, but there's nothing massively wrong with CVS if it's easier.

I should say, one of the nice things about Subversion is trac:

I use subversion, though I doubt I am using the full functionality of the app

I'd also suggest subversion, opposed to CVS I had never had a corrupted repository, and in connection with trac it is quite powerful.

Subversion would be the way to go.

I have been using Perforce with my friend, and I personally love it. However the free version is limited to 2 people.

Use Darcs (http://www.darcs.net). I'm not just saying that to be different - I really believe it's the best version control around. If Sourceforge didn't restrict me to SVN or CVS, I'd be using it now.

Unless you consider losing a file change history after a rename "massively wrong"... Wink

You can do the end run and change the name in the CVS repository and your history won't be lost. Yeah, it is a bit of a nuisance one of the things people don't like about CVS. But I wouldn't consider it 'massively wrong'.
