I'm hoping to make a 2d RTS in C++. I have done a lot of mud programming in the past and quite a bit of modding to Enemy Territory recently, but I don't know much about graphics.
I'm trying to find the best graphics library/engine/whateveryouwanttocallit for drawing 2d images (with transparency) on a 2d background. Everything would be 2d, and it would be cool if I could use tga images. Looking around, I seem to be finding the OpenGL would be best for this. Am I correct in this guesstimate?
Thanks in advance for any help you can provide me with.
