    Lightbulb OpenGL vs. DirectX Discussion

    I hope this is the correct forum...

    Anyway, I have a question: what is better openGL or DirectX?
    I don't want to go "in-depth" but just know the basics. So then post which one do you like the most and why ?

    Hunt down some source for both (Theres gotta be some lying around) and see which one makes the most sence to you.
    Code:
    Error W8057 C:\\Life.cpp: Invalid number of arguments in function run(Brain *)

    You haven't searched around have you? I mean seriously you almost should be forced to search before posting...

    There is no BEST of either. In fact, you cannot even really compare them as they are entirely different entities. OpenGL is graphics, DirectX is graphics, music, input, networking, etc. all rolled into one monster package.

    That being said, try both and see how you like them, what should matter is how you like them.
