Hi
I really hate MFC and would like to throw it in the trash. I recently found out about QT
programming at Trolltech.com and from what i saw I really liked it and it support opengl!
So what I`m wanting to know is would it be better to stick with MFC or try QT . My position is this , I am new to gamming and
I want some thing that I can stick with and some day be good , but right know Iam jumping around lost on what to do .Basicly
I need to start doing things instead of guessing.

Please help so I can star to make some games and have fun Thanks

Hi !

Qt has a much nicer API then MFC and it's portable, if you can live with the license for the Free Windows version of Qt, then I don't see any reason not to use it.

But if you only do OpenGL stuff and don't need lots of dialogboxes and menus it doesn't matter much.

The good thing with MFC is that almost all computers already have the mfc??.dll and friends installed.

I think you should use the one you feel most friendly with...
