    Hey, just wondering... what in the world IS allegro? (well, duh its a gfx library but I thought DirectX stuff was too? And ppl are talking about "dont use the directx stuff in allegro")
    Just Google It. √

    Well Allegro is a wrapper for DirectX. But a lot of people don't like it because it is pretty limited on the graphics end. So a lot of people use AllegroGL which makes it work with OpenGL. You use OpenGL for graphics (actual openGl code) and the rest of Allegro you use for input, sound, etc.

    after this project I'm switching over to AllegroGL as well.

    I'm just learning Allegro. Is it worth it to finish learning it or go straight to allegrogl? Can both opengl and directx do 2d, and if so which one's better?

    stick regular allegro if you are interested in 2d; change to allegrogl if you are interested in 3d.

    unless your using direct draw then there is no difference other than the std api differences(image quality, speed, syntax, functionality, ect...), your still using 3D, just making it look like, act, and feel exactly like 2d
