Emergent Game Technology’s middleware solution Gamebryo, which we presented in earlier articles (part 1, part 2), announced yesterday the release of the 2.3 version of its famous game engine.

Amongst the refinements introduced in this new version, such as updated versions of Floodgate, a multi-cores code optimiser, and of Rendering Framework, which is used for programming specific rendering effects; as well as the integration of AGEIA’s PhysX SDK. The most eye-catching one is the pre-release of Gamebryo’s Direct3D 10 renderer. This not-yet-final re-architected version of the renderer supports most DX9 (sic) features in its current version. The Shadow System tool of the renderer was not left on the side of the road for this upgrade since it has seen some changes as well, with now the complete support for VSM, edge tap smoothed PCF and obviously other more basic shadow mapping technologies..
