I am familiar with the basics of C++..
I used to make text console games, now I have learnt about the device interface SDL which I can use to interact with the graphics card and SDL comes with OpenGL which is a graphics renderer.. okay now will I be able to make powerful games with what I am currently using? I really have no idea of my limitations with what I am using.. so if I learn the SDL & OpenGL API well enough will I be able to make complex games? Do I require any other tools or software? (apart from assets like models which I can download for free, music : free, art : free)..
In other words, can I do everything a standard game needs in just the SDL library (which includes OpenGL), I am looking for basic text on screen, sound and decent quality graphics, model loading.. get my drift..?
If not, please tell me what else I should be using and point me to some tutorials of that..
Please try to answer all of these questions, thank you..
