    DirectX or OpenGL

    Trying to get back into C/C++ and particularly want to get into games...

    So are there many benefits of using Dx over Gl or vice-versa??

    Cheers

    More games companies want DX than OGL ... especially now that the xbox is out.

    I take it you mean mean written "using" OGL

    But taking your example ... only Id Software is pushing OGL 2.0 ... who else is?

    Also when I was looking at moving into the games sector a few months ago not *one* software house asked for OGL experience ... it was all DX or PS2.

    That in itself speaks volumes.
