I want to find out when a line segment passes through a Quad. My project currently is rendered in 3D, but movement limited to 2D sorta side scrolling. I currently use lines for most of my boundieries and collision detection with that is already completed. I just test that line segment from the boundary to the line segment created over the time step for movement. I want to incorporate 1-way walls/floors. My level editor is 3dsmax and I export to my own format. For the 1-way walls I figured I could create quads mainly just extend the line in the Z direction. This means I can then export a normal and turn the quad into plane. I can then use the Dot product to classify if the point is infront/behind the plan. How can I test to see if the point actually cross the quad I used to create the plane. The plane goes on infiniately, but I only want a subsection. Or should I just turn it into a plane to get the classify point, then have a line that corrosponds with that plane and test that line with the movement line from the last timesetp? -THACO
