Hi, I''ve run into a little logical problem. I''m currently working on an indoor-FPS, with maze-like levels where you never know what''s waiting behind the next corner, hehe... However I have a little problem with the clipping. I use sphere-polygon collision detection for the camera and the level walls, but the problem is, that if I use 1 as a radius, I am quite far away from the wall and I''d like to come as close to the walls as possible. If however I use a smaller value, I come too close to the wall so that opengl starts clipping the near plane, if I lower this value the lighting gets screwed up. I can''t actually think of a solution for this problem Any ideas?

What did you lower the near plane to?
I use 0.1 with no problems, although I do use a 24bit z buffer. Maybe that''s what you need.
