Those of you who've developed games, what (if anything) do you use to keep track of your source code/resource files?

Any free software recommendations? I don't mean text editors, either.

There's no really good answer to your question. On the ifMUD the other month, people were speculating whether a program such as Dramatica (http://www.dramatica.com/) might help people plot out games. That, of course, isn't freeware and the free demo doesn't let you save anything so it's pretty useless as is.

David Cornelson wrote a program for plotting out IF games called IFstory (http://www.iflibrary.com/default.aspx?pageid=Home&contentid=13), but it never really caught on and therefore might not be as developed as one would hope).

When working on my game, what worked slowly but surely for me was just printing out my game source and writing down comments and ideas. Also, I'd write certain passages just in a spiral notebook when brainstorming.

Some authors plan their games by starting with writing a fake transcript. There's no specialized program for doing that, of course.
