Description

Hi,
Unless I'm wrong, within the debugger one can only set breakpoints on memory read and write.
It would be awesome to also be able to set breakpoints when a specific memory is executed (maybe by tracking down the LR registry?).
Or at least, to be able to set breakpoints on a registry's value (with the option to set a breakpoint on a specific registry or all).
Some usage examples I've been thinking at:

  • being able to break when any registry has its value set to 0x00000020.
  • being able to break when R5 registry has its value set to 0x00000020.
  • being able to break when LR registry has its value set to 0x02ac6484 (this would allow to simulate breakpoints on execute as requested first).
  • being able to break when FP1 floating registry has its value set to 123.456

Well it sounds like I may ask a lot, sorry about that but this feature would definitely help a lot with creating/debugging mods.
At a minimum, being able to set breakpoint on memory execute (or LR registry) would be just fine for now.
Anyway, keep up the good works, Cemu Team!
