DBG - debugging in dev-c++

I was using MSVC++ express for a few weeks, and it was much nicer then dev-c++.
I have to use minigw compiler, however, because of another library that won’t compile in msvc. Now none of my DBG statements print out.

Is there a way to get DBG output in dev-c++?

If not, what is the best method for debugging for dev-c++? Should I just make a juce console as haydxn did in the tutorial?

In mingw you might have to manually set a _DEBUG macro so that the juce code knows you’re doing a debug build.
