Point of Intersection.

Is there a good way to evaluate the point at which two lines or edges intersect?

    evDistance gives the minimal distance between entities, and you can extract from evDistanceResult coordinate of points, that give a minimal distance - if entities intersect each other the distance will be zero

    yes, ok I'll do this. thought there might be a way of evaluating a collision for a point, but this will work. Cheers.
