    1) OpenGL is a graphics API and it's freely available and your compiler will most likely already have the headers for it.

    2) Every version can be used to make 3D games...

    3) You shouldn't need to, but I'm pretty certain it's from here: www.opengl.org

    4) This is in the wrong forum

    If you didn't know that OpenGL or Direct X was free, then you probably shouldn't be doing any graphics until you learn more about it. Just a suggestion.

    Agreed, this guy probably thinks that these are some magical programs that let you make 3d game without programming.

    I have a quick question: I've recently downloaded the SDK and have tried to execute one of the examples (sphere.c). I've put it into a workspace, made sure VC is aware of the include and lib directories but I get the following error:

    Code:
    sphere.obj : error LNK2001: unresolved external symbol __imp__timeGetTime@0
    Debug/gl.exe : fatal error LNK1120: 1 unresolved externals
    The function it's looking for is not defined in either gl.h or glu.h, so where is it supposed to be?
