zHAOsILi's pcsx debugger
17 December 2005 8:08PM EST - Update by Neil
This isn’t exactly new (released almost a year ago), but if you’re working on a Playstation hack and you’ve been looking for another debugger to try, you might want to check this little thing out. It’s not an all encompasing debugger, but it is very very useful and probably one of the better psx debuggers currently out there.
It’s got the standard debugging fare: memory, instruction, and register display, memory and register read/write breakpoints. A very nice little thing to have if you’ve been relying on psemu pro’s ancient and not-at-all interactive debugger.
Source code (windows only) is provided here.
FCEUXD SP v1.06
17 December 2005 3:51PM EST - Update by Gavin
sp has released another version of his extensive NES debugging emulator, FCEUXD SP, with a minor bug fix and small feature addition. sp reports that the bug, pertaining to conditional breakpoints, “occurred when using numbers with leading zeros.” While correcting this minor issue sp also took the opportunity to change the creation of the .deb files, which previously were created on every run of the emulator, and are now only saved when the debugging window is actually used.
As always, FCEUXD SP can be found in our database.

14 December 2005 7:37PM EST - Update by Neil
evo failed to mention in his previous news post that he included in his zip file compression tools and source code for dealing with the compressed data in R-Type 2 for the GameBoy. I have taken the liberty of adding it to our lovely utilities collection.

R-Type II ASM Hacking Guide

After an email received from Normatt I’ve decided to make up an update to this document. Three of the documents are in Italian, sorry. :P
But, here’s the surpise =), I’ve translated the first and most valuable document into English. The document talks about compression, and adding uncompressed data to the rom.
Good work to all the asm hackers out there ;)
Temporal Flux 2.00 Expo
13 December 2005 3:18PM EST - Update by Gavin
Great news on the Chrono Trigger hacking front from xZeaLitYx of the Chrono Compedium:
“Temporal Flux 2.00 has been in development for several months, and will be released in a few days. You read that correctly; to celebrate the event, I’ve interviewed the entire team behind the program concerning their contributions to the project, Flux’s history, and their own achievements in Chrono Trigger rom hacking. The Expo also contains a list of features upgraded since our last Temporal Flux 2.00 preview in May; a comprehensive listing of all advantages of 1.07 is included too. Perhaps the feature will hold you over a few days until the real program is released!”
