I just bought Dark Dynamix and get an error when running the Groups demo: "Could not find function ?dynRaycastHitGetDistance@@YAMXZ in 35arkDynamix.dll. I saw an old post about it and there is supposed to be an update. I must have the latest version because I just bought it a few days ago. Does anyone have any new information about this issue?

Yes, this is a known issue with the dbpro version.

For now you just calculate the distance from the start and end point.

distSquared# = (x1-x2*x1-x2) + (y1-y2*y1-y2) + (z1-z2*z1-z2)

You should always try to use the squared result if possible for comparing distances etc.

If you need the distance then:

dist# = sqrt(distSquared#)

You may have already knew this formula of course but it is good to have it here in this thread
