For the last year or so i have been sampling different libarys and such, like opengl, allegro, and just normal windows GUI gaphics. Now i think i should settle down on one of those three and stick with it, but the problem is i dont really no which one is best, and that is why i would like your opinions on which one i should use.
I liked allegro it seemed easy to understand and made some sence but i was told it was going out of date plus it seems to simple
I tried opengl but boy dose it cofuse me it would take a lot of getting use to but i heard it is a very good libary for both 2D and 3D
And the last one i tried was just plain GUI and it worked real well and it made perfect sence but i was told it would not work for the type of games i am hoping to make( like starcraft and SolDat style )
I also heard DirectX was the way to go but i havnt been able to try it yet
