I know most of c++ but need help on making graphics. None of the books I have read tell you how to make graphics. Are there any really simple graphics tutorials or books on this site or others that you know of.. Must be c++. aggro5288 13 years old

Learn OpenGL or DirectX. You''ll probably need to know the Win32 API to do either of them the ''normal'' way.

You definitely need to in the least use Windows API and use the Winmain function instead of Main.

With WindowsAPI, you can draw shapes, colors, circles, etc. You can even make animation and load Bitmaps.

However, DirectX is much quicker in making animations and loading bitmaps, so I would advice you to use that
