I feel I'm pretty good with C++. I've done (like all learners) console mode applications, and I've dived into Windows Programming with Visual C++ 6.0. I'm ready to start learning game programming, and I was wondering what should I learn: DirectX or OpenGL? Where can I find tutorials on either of them or download the libraries/files neccessary to create programs with them

    Hello again Nytblade! ;)

    My C++ is far from good enough for game programming atm...but I'm quite fond of: http://nehe.gamedev.net/ and the openGL tuts there :) (downloadable VC++ code there as well) enjoy!

    [blue]If you want to do 3d games you can get the DirectX9 SDK free from Microsoft. It very large so if you have a slow modem you will probably want to get it on CD for just a couple $$. It is definetly NOT for beginners. [/blue]
