I would recommend what everyone calls the RedBook. It's the "OpenGL Programmers Guide" and there might be an online version. It's pretty helpful and you can learn everything in order, or just learn what you need.

Here you go:

It's how I learned OpenGL. It's pretty simple and fun to use.

The red book is very good for learning OpenGL. If you don't want to read it on the computer you can pick up an older edition for a couple of dollars online.

I don't think it is enough to make a game though. huzmak, what programming language are you planning to do this with (and how well do you know it)?

I recommend you combine OpenGL and SDL so all the basic window / keyboard / sound / joypad / thread stuff is handled for you in an open-platform way.

I have OpenGL and and SDL installed in my DevC++, I have error on

#include <GL/glut.h>


Do I need to have a separate download on glut?

You might, but please start a separate thread.
