Hey guys, I want to switch from Windows dev to Linux dev but I am coding game using C# and Monogame's framework. I'd like to know if you think it is possible and viable to code big game projects with vscode ? And is there plugins inside vscode which can add automaticly the framework's needs and create breakpoint step by step for debugging like Visual studio do ?

Thanks for your help ! :)

    I give up, neither vscode and jetbrain were viable or possible to code with monogame. Only Monodev was easy to setup and load from a existing project but isn't as good as VS imo.

    @lufen34 both are great products I use on a daily basis with C# and have used them with monogame.

    What is the issue?

    @Codex404 I keep having problems with building and running my project. After 9 hours of stackoverflow/google/and many forums, nobody could truely solve this issue. It keep saying that there is no valid Main for running which is ofc not true. I rebuilded the project files using "dotnet new " and "dotnet new sln" which worked (since the project was imported from windows) change monogame framework using directX to Opengl and it keep with a another issue that no one could solve. After many research i was taught that only Monodev truely use monogame ...
