I''m sure this question has been answered, but I looked around and only found partial answers.
Basically, I would like a book on 3D game development that is not completely DirectX centric. I''ve done a little 2D game programming and am confident in my C and C++ abilities, and I''m just starting to pick up OpenGL.
I was thinking about buying Lamothe''s ''Black Art'' book and just trying to code the examples on my own, but I heard that it is not entirely up to date. Does this matter for a beginner or have there been significant advances that make that book obsolete? I don''t really mind if the book uses DirectX (or any other API), as long as it explains the concepts well enough that I could translate them to C++/OpenGL.
Thanks, and sorry if this was too repetitive.
