> Actually, I just closed the Stella debugger and opened PCAE - I don't know if it is just familiarity, but having everything onscreen at once (RAM, registers, ROM, flags, TIA) plus tracking what scanline I'm on, and how many cycles into it I am, just seems a better interface to me.  Even though PCAE doesn't emulate 100% accurately.

Actually, the latest nightly build comes closer to that than the alpha
4 you're using.

Is there any way you can send me a screen shot of PCAE's debugger in
action? I don't have any way to run PCAE (well, maybe MS-DOS in VMWare
might work, I'll try it later).

As for having *everything* on screen at once... that's a lot of stuff :)

Does PCAE read DASM symbol and listing files? I was sort of hoping we
were the first to do that.

Try a nightly from time to time. Part of what's driving the development
process is feedback from the users... even if you hate it, we want to
know what you hate about it.
