Im only 14 but I applied to the national software contest. Even I dont have much experince. But I will try my best. Well I need a help with my Map.I dont think Im gonna make 10k over functions call with display list or normal calling . So I plan using vertex arrays. But I understand that vertex array can be fast for some system but some system that doesn't support may cause result in opposite way. So Anyone can give me an ideas How to mapping a big map such as town or city in a cheap way? Im still new to OpenGL. So if anyone would like to help me more please add me by MSN . codenameAs-12@hotmail.com

Grab a book, I like Game Coding Complete 2nd Edition. Just make sure its the 2nd edition one. This will show you more of a professional type build instead of a learn and junk method most give ya.

If you limit your choices to Display lists or Va's then it depends.

If the model is static (Ie, vertices won't change for the duration of the progie) then DL's are way better.

If you plan to do some morphing or animations then Va's are better.
