So, I'm getting annoyed at trying to display debug data in my DX9 app. I mean, DX has to be working correctly to be running my CText class anyhow, so if I'm getting debug info at all, its because everything is working fine. How the heck useful is that?
So I came across this, which talks about using a monochrome monitor to output to. Thats bloody brilliant and I've always wanted to do it. Its a rather long read so you can probably skip that link.
My question is: Whats involved in hooking up a second monitor, and how do I go about outputting to it in Windows XP. I know nothing at all about using/hooking-up/programming-for a second monitor. Could someone fill me in or point me to a site that could help. Both with what hardware i'll need, and what will be involved in writing to it.
I've spent some short time looking around but haven't found anything useful as of yet. I figure there must be a few people around here that would know.
