Hey, I need some help. I am really wanting to learn Game programming and Engine design. But I need to learn some of the basics. I am currently using MS Visual C++ 6.0 Standard Edition. I am looking for some good tutorials. Mostly easy to understand. I have been to NeHe, and I am currently reading his tutorials. Also, any books and such that are good too. Thanks, Later

hey,
i'm a newbie too!! but i've done a bit so i can help you. NeHe rocks but along i suggest that you begin coding with glut to spare yourself all the win32 code.
here are some links you might find useful http://opengl.gamedev.net/files/glutdlls37.zip

The best book is the "red book" that can be downloaded from gamedev. Not the latest edition and perhaps not so easy but really good.
