    Is that the same thing as ray tracing, like Wolfenstein 3D, or DOOM?

    search the internet!!! if raycasting doesn't yeild any results, then search for raytracing...

    also, have a look at www.irtc.org for some really funky raytraced pictures.

    I already tried that but it returned around 492 results. Checking that out is gonna give you a pain in the head.

    No one said you have to check them all out. Just look through a few until you find what you're looking for

    Try www.peroxide.dk/tutorials and search for their wolfenstein ray casting tutorials. It's in pascal though (however, pascal is so high level that it looks like english. So you'll have no trouble understanding)

    s that the same thing as ray tracing, like Wolfenstein 3D, or DOOM?
    DOOM & Wolf3D use raycasting, not raytracing.
    Ray tracing is another process for precisely calculating lighting in 3D scenes that is too slow to be used in real-time (currently)

    Yes, take Coder's advice and go to www.peroxide.dk/tutorials and download the raycasting tuts as well as the source code. These are the most comprehensive raycasting tuts I've found.
