Faster command/method than Intersect Object??

Faster command/method than Intersect Object??

Faster command/method than Intersect Object??

The command intersect object is too slow for my code.  I'm attempting to build a collision function which checks all surrounding areas for a collision.  If I set the cameraY position to a fix number then the code is fast enough, however when I attempt to loop through the Y position my FPS drops to almost nothing.

Basically I need another command/method than Intersect Object.  Intersect Object is too slow to be looped roughly 75 times per sync.

Here's the segment code:


   for x=0 to checks-1
      ang#(x,1)=-10000  `So first tempang# is less than ang#
      for chy#=cy#-150 to cy# step 2
         tempang#=intersect object(currentCollisionObject,cx#,chy#,cz#,chx#,chy#,chz#)
         if tempang# < ang#(x,1)
            ang#(x,1) = tempang#
      next chy#
      if ang#(x,1)=0 then ang#(x,1)=999999
   next x
