a major update of Emulicious has been released.
Some highlights are:
The overall performance has been improved and the impact of the debugger on the performance has been reduced significantly.
Light Phaser and Mega Drive controller emulation has been added.
Patch files can now be loaded like ROM files and screenshots can now be taken by pressing F12.
Port watchpoints have been added. A port watchpoint can be added in the Breakpoint Window using the prefix 'p' so entering "pdd" would add a port breakpoint on port dd.
A completely new tool has been added called „Coverage“. It records all accesses to any address. It uses different colors to encode relative numbers of accesses. It uses 3 base colors at different levels of brightness. Yellow means it is accessed significantly more often than green and red means it is accessed significantly more often than yellow. The brightness indicates the relation to other values with the same base color. A brighter color means that it has more accesses than the one with the darker color. The Coverage tool can be used to identify hotspots but also to identify dead code, unused data or unused RAM. In conjunction with breakpoints and stepping it can also be used to identify which code/data/ram is used from one point of the execution to another.
