I'm playing aroung with some sample code and I'm trying to debug a problem I'm having ( if I can't figure it out, that will be my next post ). I'm using VC++ 6.0. When I try to 'run to cursor' or set a breakpoint, I can't see the debugger. Is there a good way to debug in full screen mode? Oh, and I hope everybody had a safe and happy new year.

If your IDE supports it, you can do multi-monitor debugging. Your program gets rendered on one monitor and the debugger sits on the other. Visual Studio also has a cool option for remote debugging, you can use a second computer on your LAN for the rendering/debugging.

Thanks guys. As it turns out, I solved my problem by tracing it through on paper, but this will be a big help when it comes to more complicated problems. I'm making an Asteroids clone. I'll post it when I'm done.
