Middleware firm Kynogon has announced the release of version 4.0 of its AI middleware solution Kynapse.
The new version of Kynapse can manage large-scale AI requirements, and includes innovations such as hierarchical PathFinding and data streaming both for PathFinding and 3D perception. The software can also now handle multi-threaded approaches enabling the management of very large number of entities.
The automatic data generation tool has also been redesigned: it now handles very large terrains using an automatic tile mechanism. It also accepts a larger range of 3D file formats, including Collada and offers a new user interface.
The developers have also include new examples, and a new set of documentation with the new version to better help developers work with Kynapse. Kynapse 4.0 is the product of 6 years of development at Kynogon, and has been designed to suit development on next-generation hardware.
