well i tried to write a function to calculate horizons based on angles... this is what i have...
#define PIUNDER180 57.2957795130823208767981548141052f
#define RAD_TO_DEG( radians ) ( ( radians )*PIUNDER180 )

float* CLIGHTING::CalculateHorizonMap(float* Mesh, float lightangle)

	float* Temp = new float [m_size*m_size];

	float angle;

	for ( int z = 0; z < m_size; z++)
		for (int x = 0; x < m_size; x++)
			angle = 0.0f;
            for (int x1 = x-1; x1 > 0; x1--)

				float opp = Mesh[x1+(m_size*z)];
				float adj = (x-x1);
				float Newangle = RAD_TO_DEG(atan( opp / adj ));

				if ( Newangle > Angle)
					angle = Newangle;

			Temp[x+(m_size*z)] = angle;

	return Temp;


but as u may guess it doesnt work... its pretty simple but i dont get where ive gone wrong.. any suggetions?
