As my 2-dimensional platform game is advancing, I find myself in need of a seperate application, that can keep track of all the complex resources on my computer, that are involved. I am going a bit mad right now, i cannot remember where everything is located on my comp, and I'd like to see thumnails of my levels and sprites. In short, I want to have a small program that has the folders 'levels','sprites',etc. where I can see small thumbnails of these bitmaps (and preferably shortcuts to my win xp folders where they are located). A game management program. I there a free resources that I can use for this? Thank you.

Well to an extent you can keep track of most things in Visual Studio.NET in your solution panel. Alternatively you could write your own in C# fairly easily.

Consider using a system such as Subversion for revision control. In this way, all files in your project can be saved in a specified architecture. You can check them out to work on them and when you check them back in, you are assured that they will be kept with your game. I am not sure if there is a GUI client that allows viewing thumbnails...

Subversion, that's interesting.

I haven't considered using CVS / clones for my game. May be I must write my own. I just need a visual tool where I can keep track of all my sprites, levels, weapons, etcetera, and where they are located on my HD.

Thanks, Marmin.

Why don't you put all your game resources in a common folder rather than all over your hard disk?
eg.

+resources
+sprites
+enemies
+player
+powerups
+fonts
+common
+sounds
+enemies
+player
+music
+levels
+maps
+dialogs
etc...



In that way you can easily find where all your resources are.
Then on top of that, download a free image viewing program like Picasa from Google(http://picasa.google.com/index.html)
