So I just polished off the C++ for Dummies 7 in 1 book and have Michael Dawson's text well behind me, and I'm ready to attack a game. Problem is, neither of these books touched at all on actual graphic presentation.
Where do I go from here? Win32 seemed logical, but I keep hearing that it's inferior to OpenGL. OpenGL seems viable, but the tutorials seem fragmented all over the internet and I'm unsure even if there are programs/plug-ins I need to download, or even where to get them.
Looking for some guidence here on what to pursue, where to get it from, and how to learn it.
