    Hey, you both have basically the same avatars! But only one is allowed to keep it!

    Ok, time to figure out who deserves it. Round one: Monkey knife fight. Both pick a monkey and then battle 'em.

    That all depends, DDR can load and unload faster, but that 64

    of memory on your videocard in any game.

    btw, i have a level in Quake3 that requires at least 64 MB
    of memory on your videocard, you play Quake3?

    OpenGL ruled the world a few years ago, but Direct3D got better,
    it's about as good as OpenGL i think, the change is just in
    the way you use the API, and of course D3D is an MS product,
    and certain people have a problem with MS (most likely because
    theyre jallous of it's succes and money).

    I chose it because i like the way it works, right on the subject,
    simeple function to perform tasks, no complicated unnessecary
    things done in D3D, for it's portability..well..nice to have but im
    not utilizing it.
