Quierschied, Germany – January 11, 2012 – xaitment, the creators of advanced artificial intelligence (AI) software for video game and simulation developers, today announced that it has made its source code available to all current and future US and European customers who license full versions of its AI software modules, xaitMap and xaitControl. The downloadable source code is available at no extra charge for all platforms supported by xaitment: Windows ®, Linux ®, Xbox360 ®, and PLAYSTATION ®3.
xaitMap and xaitControl provide developers with well-maintained, well-supported libraries and graphical tools for NavMesh generation, pathfinding, movement, character behavioral modeling and game logic. The availability of xaitment source code gives developers the added ability to more easily debug, optimize and customize the code , which ultimately saves time in the development of unique AI features for their game or simulation.
“As the number and variety of projects we support grows, so too do the number of requests we see for features that are specific to game genres or platforms,” said Thorsten Maier, CTO of xaitment. “Offering source code with our AI software modules frees developers to customize our code in order to meet the specific needs of their unique projects.”
