With "bad newbie", are you using slang, implying you are in fact a "cool newbie"?

Anyway, try something like http://nehe.gamedev.net
Seems to be cool for OpenGL.

I've started recently programming (MSVC++6 and using OGL), and I have many questions... Help and don't flame please :)
-Applying textures to metaballs
-Texture generation within app
-Cell shading (Looks REALLY cool)
Sites and info would be greatly appreciated... Thanks :)

Juliette :
-Use texture generation coordinates and sphere/cubemapping.
You can get the normals by taking the gradient of your potential function at the current position (your vertex thus).

-Look after some article (like the one by Ile/Aardbei in Hugi n°? (arrgh dan't remember). Mixing perlin noise, color
and effects, and using some maths functions should help here.

-Cell shading, look at Nehe tuts and Nvidia papers perhaps..

-Detect collisions. Bounding shapes (box, sphere), space partitions (to avoid testing unnecessary entities), OBB trees and more..

It should be quite enough for a start... I hope

be sure to use a derivate function instead of calcing 6 positions for each gradient (x/y/z -1/+1)

stefan: haha. but not this time :P
newbie: your question is so darn basic that it hurts. ask qualified and you probably get useful answers. i mean... that's typical inet shit - people ask dumb "I dev with OGL but all i have prod is a simple Cube rotating in a slow tunnel!! Please give me some support(sources or tipps)" instead of thinking even once or clicking google. Helping people who ask the right questions - i do that anytime. But such questions are just so extremly dumb and lame that they just piss me off.

1. learn proper english (so you don't sound like jeff k without doing it on purpose)
2. we began by doing loads of research ourselves, not by asking pointless and empty "i could think of a million answers"-thoughts provoking questions
3. so do some research yourself and come with a question when you can't cope with something more specific
4. cool showers suck
5. teh futare si now
6. you are a homo
