like, what do i really need to have (files, programs) in order to begin programming games? what includes should i include? how would i start off?
of what i heard, Allegro was the only thing suggested.
i have BloodShed Dev C/C++ (newest version) and i would like to know what i need to include and what programs and files i should have in order to make a 2d game.
and can someone please tell me how to start off the program?
i have VERY minimal openGL support. anything 3d runs slow, but say a 3 gradient 3d triangle spinning on the middl;e axis, that runs pretty smooth.
