  • Nicely done! Looks good and fast.

  • Good job!

    It has some atan style artifact (probably after fisheye correction?).

  • Thanks! The ray to wall-height uses the cosine of the angle times the ray width basically to get the straight perpendicular line from the screen.

    There's a variable that sets the wall height relative to the distance value and that gives you different perspective looks. It's one of those things to play with to get the "feel" you want.
