Now with new improved physics

Source - pressreleases

Synaptic Soup have unveiled the latest version of the Cipher engine, which will be powering their own oddball motor racing game Crazy Car Championship, and is also available for licensing to other developers. Top of the list of changes is the addition of the Karma physics system from MathEngine, which is also now built into the latest versions of the Unreal technology. According to Synaptic technical director Rik Heywood, "Cipher developers can now benefit from an easy step into realistic physically modelled game worlds". Other improvements in Cipher v1.2 include an upgraded animation system that allows for facial expressions, new shader and particle system options, better multiplayer support, updated sound and music code, changes to the development tools and (last and most certainly least) new lens flare and sun glare effects. Just what the world needed - more lens flare. "With its powerful feature set, flexible licensing options, no royalties to pay and now the additional features of version 1.2, there has never been a better time to join the growing number of Cipher licensees", development director Vince Farquharson enthused.
