SDL??

hi,

i want to start in the game programming area and i found SDL. My question is, is good to start in this topic? I mean, is more easy than DX or Opengl so i think is a good starting point before jump to DX or Opengl.

What do you think?

Bye

(sorry for my english)

    i think generally it's easier to start with.
    the question is what you want to do. if you just want program a small 3d game or similar, you're better with a 3d engine ready with code to load models found in other games such as half-life or quake. jump to [blue]http://www.revolution3d.de[/blue] (vb) or to [blue]http://cg.cs.tu-berlin.de/~ki/engines.html[/blue] to get a list of many engines ready to use.

    directx as low-level programming interface is something for experts. really. but for simple 3d visualizations you could use it.
