comment Translate click on screen to point on plane in 3D space
What on earth makes you think about 5 basic arithmetic operations is going to be a performance concern? Neither would cause performance issues. Only difference is point 1 only works in this specific case where as point 2 can be made more generalizable. If you want to do point 2 I would reccomend starting here msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb203905.aspx.

comment Is there a way to use the ContentManager with full directory paths
The resources are packaged with your game and you have no control over where its installed if you distribute it. I don't see a practical application for doing this.

comment How do I perform an xBR or hqx filter in XNA?
Also I thought CG was compatible w/ DirectX 9 which iirc is what XNA is based on. Try compiling one of the examples in the link as if it was an HLSL file. github.com/libretro/common-shaders/tree/master/hqx

comment Why is Euler integration sometimes preferred over RK4 even if RK4 is more accurate?
Question is off topic here. Maybe try emailing the creators of the library or posting on the official forums.
