    Post Using OpenGL with Dev C++

    If you want to make programs with OpenGL, go to http://www.gametutorials.com/. In the tutorials section there are a lot of sample programs.

    Get Dev C++, if you don't have it, www.bloodshed.net.

    - Open Dev and choose OpenGL for a template, then highlight "CHANGE TO FULL SCREEN" down til you get to the } above "CREATE MY WINDOW". Press delete to get it out of the code.

    - Go to Search and Find in the above menu and find "ChangeToFullScreen();" and delete it also.

    - Compile the source again and you should get a window called "Compiler and linker output". This means you compiled it sucessfully.

    - Now go to the menu above and click Program, then Program Options.

    - Type -lopengl32 -lglu32 in the box next to "Load object files". Compile and run the program. The program should appear.

    I dont know why you post this because nobody uses Dev c++ and nobody cares about using OpenGL!!! OpenGL is THE WORST! You cant make any decent programs that would be worthwhile. You are just wasting your time with all of this nonsense about OpenGL!

    all mac programmers use opengl
    its a standard...

    and also very portable unlike direct x

    altough I dont know why you posted that here in the first place.
    almost sound like ur trying to sell somethin...?

    as for the worst program thing..
    You might wanna check some of the latest game many use opengl
    i.e baldurs gate, quake III, half life, etc..

    My two cents

    ^^ agrees w/luigi

    openGL is great and many games do use it. i think absolutecppfan is just bitter because he doesnt have the skills!!

    just look at the "jobs" listings for any of your favorite game/graphics developers, openGL knowledge is a requirement for almost any graphics programming position.
