Is there an N64 emulator with a RAM viewer?
« on: February 09, 2017, 03:03:36 pm »
I'm throwing myself at the Shindou Mario 64 Translation again today, and I was wondering if there was a way to add an FCEUX-like ram viewer/searcher to Project 64, or if anyone knows another emu that can do this, I'm looking for text values stored in RAM and I'm not sure I can do what I need with Cheat Engine.

If you enable debug options in the settings PJ64 already has memory view and search features...
More recently there is also this fork of PJ64 with much improved debugging tools: https://github.com/shygoo/project64/releases
I'm pretty sure Nemu has always had a RAM viewer as well.

Also, if looking for strings I would suggest PS2Dis, just load a big endian ram dump into it and ctrl+g will open the "labels" window with a list of all the strings it could find. If you load a little endian version of the same dump afterwards you will get the correct assembly as well as strings.

Nemu64 has a memory viewer and lots of other awesome tools for monitoring regs and what not. You can search text or hex.
