The debugger provides many features that can be useful for ROM hacking and Homebrew development. It provides customizable syntax highlighting, trace logging, breakpoints and watchpoints. It also allows to load source files to show instead of a disassembly of your ROM. A Reference Hierarchy helps in understanding a program flow, the profiler helps in identifying performance hotspots. A powerful expression syntax allows the definition of useful conditions for breakpoints/watchpoints. Breakpoints halting on accesses of uninitialized memory and inconsistent states after interrupts can help to avoid unnecessary programming mistakes.
Emulicious also allows remote debugging with tools such as Visual Studio Code. The Visual Studio Code extension can be found on VS Code Marketplace
