I''m having some trouble with my release build using MSVC++6. Running the debug build of my game works fine, but when I rebuild the project using the release build I get some pretty strange behavior. The lists of game objects do not all animate and move. I used the std::list from MSVC++6 to hold my game objects, but now random objects do nothing, while the rest of the objects behave normally. Can someone give me some suggestions as to what may be going on here? I don''t even know where to begin to look for such problems.

Do you have the lastest service packs? Since you can''t use the debugger, make a log file, and add log entries in functions you think may be malfunctioning.

the typical problem thats hurt release builds:

debug initializes all your variables for you. release does not. this means that your objects may start out with wierd states if you''re not explicitly initializing all of your variables to the proper default values in the object constructors.
