View Full Version : What do I need to know?

09-12-2001, 09:12 AM
I'm a programming newbie with quite a lot of experience in DOS based programs and some basic Windows based stuff using VC++ 6.0 standard (I also use Borland 5 for the DOS stuff)

What I want to know is where I need to go from now to learn ultimately programming 3d games. I have plenty of time and patience but a fairly low budget. Could you tell me what I need to find tutorials on (the Windows API is still a mystery to me, and I have no Direct X or OpenGL experience)

Also if you could recommend some books or (preferably) some good internet tutorials.

I forgot to mention if you want to talk to me directly I am on MSN often on robert_the_great@hotmail.com. Btw I live in England so I will be on at english times after school, (4:00 GMT until about 12:00).

well just look for "the OpenGL programming guide", it can be found online as an ebook, just do a search on google.com.
