I'm currently using directx for my game's rendering, sound(3d) and input. And after I've completed most of the game, I thought it might be fun to use opengl instead, as it doesn't require the huge dx sdk. But with sound and input, must I download other apis? And what are my options? Thanks

OpenGL is just graphics, I suggest you download SDL which creates windows for OpenGL and also has sound and input support as well but, these are some other options:

Sound:


The only good library for input imho is OIS.

Good Luck,
David

I haven't looked heavily into yet (plan to once I get enough time), but you may want to also check out something like Audiere. There's also a link to a list of free game libraries in the Alternative Game Libraries forum that has a few extra listed under the sound and music section that you may want to look into. And I'll second the recommendation for OIS.
