I finished the screen-space ambient occlusion realtime technique ( inspired by Crysis ) for the upcoming xNormal 3.14.4
Here is a video of the effect applied on Kevin "Ironbearxl" George's Sylia model:
I'm taking only 16 samples so is very fast to render. You will be able to tweak it using some parameters. It will be only available for the DX10 graphics driver by the moment but is a very simple technique so, probably, I will port it to the DX9 and OpenGL drivers too.
The 3.14.4 version will be released soon ( this Monday 24, perhaps... ) so you could use the new features for the Dominance War 3 before it ends.
