Hi all,
I make games for a hobby and I am planning on trying out OpenGL, however I am lost. I have VB5 and I am not sure what I need to download to start coding. (with direct x i download the sdk and started right away). can I do this for OpenGL?

Please Help,
Nick Thompson

Thanks

You need

vbogl.tlb (type library, set reference to it in projects->references)
opengl32.dll

Also you need to setup a window and pixel format.

Questions? fredo@studenten.net

Hope this helps,
Edo

In some older post I found another programmer using VB, maybe you can ask him... but he said everyone not to use VB for ogl!!
Think about C++...

I have C++ but I am still learning it so it will be a long while before i even start on graphics and 3D let alone OpenGL Thanks for the help everyone.
