    Hello everyone;

    Can anyone recommend a good book on how to program graphics in C? I want to create programs that can manipulate 2D and 3D graphics for a game I am creating.

    for 3D you've got two real choices,

    Direct-X comes with graphics, sound, network, and input, it's a good all in one API.

    http://www.microsoft.com/directx

    they can however be mixed, say OpenGL for Graphics and Direct-X for the rest, and there are other sound libraries and such but i limit this to the topic, graphics...

    If you want to choose which graphics programming library should you choose, visit my poll at windows programming.

    If you want to do DOS, definitely use Allegro, do to www.delorie.com/djgpp
