Hello, I have some problem with MessageBoxes, when my game is running in fullscreen mode the MessageBox() function isn´t shown on the screen, which function I should use for that? Have asked the SDK for that haven´t found anything relevanted.

I had this problem. You could try calling MessageBox() with the MB_TOPMOST flag or make sure you arent using NULL as the windows handle. I think this fixed my problem although it was a while ago and i dont tend to use messageBox() much anymore so i might be wrong.

Hope Ive helped

Write a function that you can call to dump a message to a text file. That is what a lot of people do.

FlipToGDISurface() is the right function, have heard that from an other programmer, and it seems to be working, thanks to you all.
