Hi it's me again. More ActionScript magic with another conceptual demo, this time involving the raytracing process behind such classics as "Wolfenstein 3D". At least the basics of it, anyway...

CAUTION: Do not play this game if you are running on a slow low-end computer! I'M SERIOUS! If you do, and you complain to me that it causes your Flash player/Web browser to slow down, etc. I will simply reply that YOU WERE WARNED! I'm sorry but ActionScript doesn't seem to be efficient enough for this kind of stunt...

There's a leak in the ray tracing

There's a leak where the data goes:
[0,0,0]
[0,1,1]
[1,0,0]

Try reducing the interval for testing the points along the ray.

Well consider at the time I wrote this the typical 1GHz Duron XP machine could barely run what I submitted here, much less anything with a finer interval. So, rather than have NG users yell at me "OMG UR FLASH HUNG MY BROWSER BLAM" I made the interval wide. Also consider that ActionScript 3.0 didn't exist at the time and the only way to get this working was to get Flash 6 to do many many LineTo/MoveTo operations.

This was also submitted before I had written a more efficient implementation that used block boundary testing rather than a fixed interval. Unfortunately I never submitted it because I got distracted by other projects.

Great Presentation

I like the way you created a random 3Dscape maker that didn't lag too much. This says your'e really good at this. Good choice of music too! Keep it up!

...I have a 1.6GHz with Windows 98 AND XP (XP has Internet), thus proving it isn't lagging too much. (I mean, it can't, if a Microsoft OS can show it...!)
