    Question What do I need to know?

    I'm a programming newbie with quite a lot of experience in DOS based programs and some basic Windows based stuff using VC++ 6.0 standard (I also use Borland 5 for the DOS stuff)

    What I want to know is where I need to go from now to learn ultimately programming 3d games. I have plenty of time and patience but a fairly low budget. Could you tell me what I need to find tutorials on (the Windows API is still a mystery to me, and I have no Direct X or OpenGL experience)

    Also if you could recommend some books or (preferably) some good internet tutorials.

    Thanks

    Robert602

    well just look for "the OpenGL programming guide", it can be found online as an ebook, just do a search on google.com.
