Why Open GL?


I was talking about Open Gl and Direct 3D with a friend and he told me that Direct 3D is much better library, but he can’t explain why.

I’m not sure, I have tested many games with Open GL and runs better than Direct 3D games.

Could anybody tell me where to find information about Open GL / Direct 3D?.


This forum is for users of games and other software and are having problems.

That beeing said, some games that offer support for both APIs like half-life and counter strike run better and have less graphics glitches in GL mode. Sometimes, it’s the other way around.

I suggest you do a web search like “OpenGL + Direct3D”
