Runtime errors

We can only use version 3 for about 5-10 minutes before Windows gives a runtime error and kills Vizard. This is the same code that runs perfectly in Vizard 2.5 for hours at a time. Are runtime...

Here is code that works with the Test.wrl I posted earlier. The view is at an angle to the hallway, so a line straight ahead should intersect the wall which is 4.3 meters away. But, this particular...

No. The thickness of the "wall" is only 0.01, maybe that has something to do with it. I'll try increasing the thickness, and see if that makes a difference.

It doesn't help me even when I get the update. In 2.53, I could have a body that represented the "viewer". That body could be not visible, so that intersect() would not see it, but collidingwith()...

It looks like viz.phys.intersectLine is faster than the old viz.intersect. But, the old intersect would ignore objects that were not visible.
