Integrating UDK with Perforce Software Version Management

In previous articles, we have covered the importance of using version control software for game development, as well as how to install, configure, and secure a Perforce server.

Now, it is time to add a game engine into the process, and show how version control is actually implemented in development.

Go to the official UDK site and download the latest version of UDK. (July 2012 is the first version to offer enhanced Perforce connectivity.)

Run the UDK installer, using the default target path.

Do not run the Perforce Server or Visual Client installers. (See the guides above to install the server and client if you have not done so previously.)

Do not run UDK when the install is complete. Choose the option to Return to desktop.
