    No on Allegro or OpenGL (you don't even have to compile on a Windows machine for these), and for DirectX, just a little really. Especially if you go with DirectX, it isn't a bad idea to get into it a bit though. Any knowledge can generally benefit you.

    Red face Well for me I have too

    Well I have to know how to program in Win32 because I program on a windows system and I program in OpenGL. The reason for knowing Win32 because I need to know how to create a Window so there maybe you should know Win32 if you was in my shoes
