I've read somewhere that including unnecessary header and library files in gaming code would slow down your game speed. I often inculde a bunch of OpenGL and DirectX to make shure my code functions are supported and I don't get anny unnecessary bugs. And later on I remove the ones I didn't use. -Is this method ok, because I find it hard to determine wich ones I used and wich not? -And does it slow down your gaming code(and eventually your game itself)?And what if you use just a few lines of a library?

Generally, it only slows down the compliation, not the output code.

The files that go into the compilation process do not necessarily determine the size of the resulting executable. It is the actual compiled code - code in static libraries and source files (or inline functions defined in headers) - that yields the resulting executable.

Thanks to Kylotan for the idea!
