Quote from: Malias on November 03, 2013, 08:06:47 PMThe feature I'd love in a debugging emulator would be one that could do a memory trace and say exactly where some data in memory came from. It would be such a time saver.
Quote from: STARWIN on November 04, 2013, 01:03:53 PMI have recently read some PS1 (dis)asm as opposed to NES/SNES. It could be about the program (or its complexity), but I suspect that systems with many registers simply have more difficult disassemblies to read.

It would be such a time saver.+1, that would be amazingpresumably you hit a button and it savestates and starts logging both a tracelog and the player input, then you use breakpoints or just pause the emulator to get to the point where the value in memory is there, then hit magic reverse trace button to trace backwards to see where it came from. obviously it might get stuck if it reads/writes to intermediate memory steps, but then you just automatically load state and retry again with the new target memory address and the recorded player input. repeat until you find a source or reach the beginning of the log
