I think and this is only my opinion but VC++ is faster and better for use with OpenGL even though VC++ needs lots of code, when compared to Delphi it would be a lot smaller.... But that doesn't mean that the size of Delphi would be smaller..it's the opposite... Your VC++ would probably be less in size and of course faster than Delphi... I don't know the proportion, but maybe someone else can help.....

btw- If someone has more experience with both VC++ and Delphi than me please give your opinion because no one is perfect :->

Seb24,

To a large degree it doesn't really matter. With OpenGL apps the vast majority of the time  will be spent rendering each frame. Both Delphi and VC++ provide native interfaces to OpenGL.

So, pick the language you are most familier with and find easiest to use. I personally would use Delphi, while others I work with would use VC++.

Hope this helps,

Raymond

As rwilson already said, the choice of your platform doesn't not depend on speed. I have done OpenGL development for about 2 years now and am still satisfied with Delphi's abilities.

What you, though, should consider is the source support for OpenGL. Nearly all sample code available today is written in a C dialect so adaption is much easier if you use VC. But you had to fiddle with sometimes crude code (as C is in common).

If the programming language doesn't matter for you then I recommend VC (even if I don't like C at all :-).

Ciao, Mike

I guess I'm the quickly guy :-)

Here's a repost of my answer...
