I'm using NG to cast a ray in my game, and it slows down my program tremendously. It's only 30 3d-space-units long, but its very slow. The rest of my program runs perfectly fine. Can anyone please give me some tips on how to speed up my ray-casting?

What version NGC are you using (V2.03 is faster than 3.01 for some reason)? You may want to check into Sparky's ray casting dll found here
http://forum.thegamecreators.com/?m=forum_view&t=31051&b=5 It is way faster than NGC ray casting as well as DBP's intersect object.
