[02:46:33] <Knight> what would be the difference between using sdl and opengl for 2d/3d ?
[02:52:57] <servus> Well, SDL can't "do" 3D...
[02:54:18] <servus> For 2D, it's platform-dependent. On Windows, for instance, SDL will use DirectDraw for 2D stuff, and OpenGL may or may not be faster, since DirectDraw will try to use the video hardware itself. On other platforms, SDL may or may not find a way to accelerate 2D graphics operations through hardware. OpenGL *may* be a "better" choice, but it's not so easily defined :)

[03:02:24] <Knight> i thought sdl could do 3d stuff
[03:05:02] <servus> There is an SDL_OpenGL project, but it's pretty slim and only does a few things, like get GL extension pointers from the OS
[03:06:35] <Knight> oh..
[03:06:48] <Knight> so for 3d you need to do opengl, or directx
[03:07:05] <Knight> for linux there's mesa right?
[03:07:58] <servus> Yep, but Mesa is just OpenGL.
[03:09:30] <Knight> oh..
[03:09:31] <Knight> lol
[03:09:41] <Knight> and something like directx for linux then?
[03:09:48] <Knight> that should be sdl right?
[03:13:17] <servus> Yep.
[03:13:39] <Knight> I se..
[03:13:41] <Knight> see..
[03:13:51] <servus> SDL will do lots of DirectX-ish stuff like keyboard, mouse and joystick control, as well as window management. It can also be extended to do DirectSound and DirectMusic-ish stuff with SDL_Mixer, et cetera.
[03:14:12] <Knight> but it doesn't do direct3d
[03:14:20] <servus> That's right.
[03:14:48] <Knight> I thought it had support for 3d graphs
[03:15:19] <servus> With OpenGL.
[03:17:27] <Knight> So, sdl + opengl would make the equal to directx right/
[03:18:59] <servus> Yep.
[03:22:36] <Knight> cool, i will have that in mind then

[04:44:53] <Knight> hey what do you recommend for making gui's?
[04:45:19] <Knight> best if cross plataform
[04:45:38] <servus> QT
[04:45:53] <Knight> is it easy to use?
[04:46:03] * servus shrugs
[04:46:05] <servus> Moderately so.
[04:46:16] <servus> It has a graphical form builder, I'm rather sure
[04:47:04] <Knight> i was thinking about wxwindows
[04:47:12] <Knight> but i must say i never used either of them..
[04:47:15] <Knight> so i can't tell :(
