How do you folks rate this book? I have never touched OpenGL (and don''t really want to) but have worked with DirectX and through Jim Adams Programming RPGs book? What would the translation be like between the 2 APIs if I were to get this book? Also, does anyone know of a directx specific tutorial or terrain rendering (apologies if this has been covered so many times already)? Thanks

For terrain rendering.... Just follow the tuts included with directX and do the math. It's really not that hard. I'm doing my own terrain generator after reading the tuts. I found the RTPatch example very usefull if you want to do it with patches.
