    Stan, I have a set of links of that might be able to help you out at my site (follow the link in my sig).

    Huh, I noticed that with my last two posts I've made in the past few minutes that it probably seems like I'm trying to throw a plug in for my site. Well, I'm not. I ony have my site, so I can maybe help a few people. Slowly but surely the site will get to be really good for helping many people.

    uhh...to get openGL and to program in it, you just include a couple files in yor program. they should have come with your compiler. it came with bloodshed dev c++

    #include <gl/gl.h>

    if i remember correctly (damn motrivin)

    as for everything else, i dont like GDI....i just dont....openGL can do oh so much more....seriosly...nice job on your game though...hunter

    as for everything else, im fine with, as i know how to import md2 and bsp, and i know how to make models and after image (motion blur effect) and everything, (well i got tuts on it) and i plan on learning them, after i make DarkCode (my text editor, a cool little one, even good for the C++ programmer)

    Ok, I have the sdl dll, now what

    I dont have the opengl header

    I know this is off topic, but how do you change the little words under your name (like where rideordie has the words "student rick " etc.

    I know it may seem like I'll never get anything, but someday (drumroll please) I might be able to (ohhs, and ahhhs) CONTRIBUTE to this forum.

    Food for thought:
    Is it just me, or is everyone in this forum/site sarcastic?

    Of course, nobody does Still, it's pretty useful when you're learning DirectX.

    openGL can do oh so much more....

    Lol, is it my impression that Stan is running without being able to walk?

    I am not trying to discourage you Stan, but you obviously lack a lot of programming knowledge, prove me wrong. I suggest you dig into much more C/C++ programming, master some things before you go into game programming. Questions like where is GDI located (directory), is GDI in windows 98 or where can I download OpenGL, show that clearly.
    My point is that you should learn more things before trying the tougher ones, everyone should agree here.

    OpenGL "meant" for games? I will have to disagree here, as GL is meant for any 3D application. Direct3D and DirectDraw are "meant" for games, watch what you are saying

    Talking

    Ya,ya,ya I know I'm ahead of myself, I've never plotted a dot on the screen before. I'm learning now so by the time I can I don't have to bug everyone here. Might as well bug sooner than later right? Can someone tell me how to change the words under my name? Like ride or die?

    You have to have at least 400 posts to change the title under your name.

    Where is the GDI thingy located(what directory would it be found?)
    Well, it's not really in a directory. To use it, all you have to do is put "#include <windows.h>" at the top of your code, since it is "built into windows"
    Well, actually, it IS in a directory. It's not just "built into windows". It is in your windows\system or windows\system32 directories, depending on your version of windows. There are two componets of it, GDI.exe and GDI32.dll. Also, if you have GDI+, you also should have a dll for it as well.

    Oh, sorry What I meant to say, was that:
    a) you don't need to do anything fancy to get it working
    b) when using MSVC++ 6
    c) professional edition
    d) making a "win32 application"
    e) on my computer

    Remind me if I've forgotten anything on my list.

    Hey DarkViper. Since you kin'o like me - want to make a game but don't know where to start.

    Anyway listen! I heared that for special 2D BS lots of people use JAVA. I pesonally thought of buying something of SUN(r) but things get expensive there.

    So then I thought of Visual C++, but here we ho again, I hate math. But then I think about programming and realize it's not that bad.

    But anyway JAVA!!! I think would be the way to go for us both!
