New Mog Pricing

February 2nd, 2009

Mogware is excited to announce its new monthly subscription pricing for ‘Mog Complete’. The new pricing starts as little as $15/month and allows developers to easily increase or decrease the desired number of seats throughout development without inhibitive middleware licensing costs.

Team Plugin Released

January 14th, 2009

After a long wait Mogware has released the Team Plugin.

The FileHamster Team plugin was created with small to medium sized teams in mind. Many companies and groups have files on a network that are accessed by many different users throughout any given day. The Team Plugin allows FileHamster to keep revisions of the files on the network and display them for the entire team to see the progress. Important information is stored about who made a certain change to a file, when they made it and who is currently working on a certain file.

When using the FileHamster Team Plugin users access the shared files through the FileHamster interface. A user can lock a file and begin editing it. When they have the file locked other users are able to see in FileHamster that the file is locked, thus preventing users from accessing the file at the same time. When a user makes a revision their computer user name is recorded with that particular revision.

New FileHamster Videos

January 8th, 2009

We now have demonstration videos for all of our FileHamster products.

The new videos give examples of the basic use of FileHamster itself and all of the available plugins that Mogware provides. These videos give users a much closer look at what exactly they can expect out of FileHamster.

“Although the videos do not come close to showing everything that can be done, they do a great job of laying the groundwork and hopefully opening the possibilities to our users.” – John Renstrom, President Mogware.

Mog Library Released

October 15th, 2008

Mogware Inc. is announcing the release of ‘Mog Library’, a greatly simplified version control solution that focuses on artist’s needs when storing large quantities of digital assets.

“For years, ‘Mog Library’ has been an integral part of our game pipeline and automation toolset. Because the Library’s popularity and feature set has grown, we have finally decided to introduce it as a separate stand-alone application.”- John Renstrom, President – Mogware Inc. “Artists now have another choice for version control instead of trying to use overly complicated programmer-centric solutions for managing their binary files.”

‘Mog Library’ will be sold for $99.95 per seat representing a significant savings over other products currently on the market. With its simplified interface and first-run install wizard, artists should find the product to be a refreshing alternative to other solutions used in the past.

“Modern games are 95% content and 5% code; with that kind of ratio it is a shame that artists are forced to use programmer-centric hand-me-downs to improve their efficiency.”-Kier Knowlton, Mogware. The industry is demanding powerful, cost-effective middleware solutions.

About Mog Library:

For years, ‘Mog Library’ has been an imbedded component of ‘Mog Complete’, Mogware’s game data pipeline and workflow automation toolset. Because of the Library’s growing popularity, Mogware has decided to introduce ‘Mog Library’ as a separate stand-alone product enabling art houses to enjoy the library’s feature set without the requirement of purchasing the entire ‘Mog Complete’ solution. Artists familiar with the Library have come to appreciate its simplified interface and real-time lock tracking features that can be imbedded into external editors and tools. The Library comes with an easy out-of-the-box installer and first-run wizard that will help less technical artists to be up and running in a matter of minutes without overly complex server-side setups.
