+ Allegorithmic, an emerging 3D technology company and the maker of MapZone & imageSynth has announced ProFX 2.6, the newest version of its patented procedural texturing middleware. Featuring a newly optimized core that runs faster and on a wider range of machines (starting with Pixel Shader 2.0), ProFX 2.6 is the only middleware that allows game developers to professionally author and render high-quality procedural textures. Designed for use with MaPZone Pro 2.6, Allegorithmic’s advanced texture authoring software, ProFX 2.6 lets game studios produce texture assets up to two times faster than with regular techniques. ProFX 2.6 procedural texture files are very small in size - typically 500 to 1000 times smaller - making them ideal for use in massively multiplayer online games (MMOGs), virtual communities, casual, and downloadable games. ProFX 2.6 is scheduled to ship in fall 2007. For more information on Allegorithmic and its products please visit www.allegorithmic.com.
