Gecko.NET 0.66.1 (Don't use 0.66.0)

http://geckowii.googlecode.com/files/Gecko dNet 0.66.1.zip

Fixed GCT save bug.  New codes could be created, but existing codes could not be modified

When connecting, the Gecko OS breakpoint handler will be automatically installed if it has not been installed already.  This will allow Gecko.NET to catch game crashes without having to set a breakpoint first.

Gecko.NET 0.66.2

-removed-

disable mem2 when in GameCube mode

MemView now shows ASCII for selected cell below the float value

fix ASCII to hex in context menus

memview selected address jumping when changing tabs

textbox that doesn't get 0-filled to add GCT code line

cheats sent to status bar

16-/8-bit poke reads the right value

16-/8-bit multi poke works correctly

multi-poke using value from new or old col.  Make the Poke Value NEW or OLD and it will read the value from the corresponding dump.  Also works for single poke

all multi-poke improvements work for serial poke too

fixed initialization bugs that might cause zombie proc or locked up the USB Gecko

driver version detection and update link in Tools tab if driver is out-dated

Gecko.NET 0.66.3

-removed- context menu memview shortcut bug

The zip file for 0.66.2 contained the 0.66.1 exe file.  Sad  0.66.3 has the real update.

Gecko.NET 0.66.6

http://geckowii.googlecode.com/files/Gecko dNet 0.66.6.zip

-memview update button fix
-connect button fix
-improved classic "next frame" (i.e. BPNext unchecked) so it always steps forward by only one frame.  This makes BPNext mostly obsolete now
-GCT tab Active Lines properly calculates size of 1932 code handler code list (smaller than 1931, changes in size depending on how many C2 codes were sent)
-another debugger patch - invalidate and flush all bytes from exireceivebuffer (both 1931 and 1932), this fixes problems with sending some C0 codes which would crash the game.

A little bit of background on the new debugger patch.  One problem with C2 codes is that their branches weren't written immediately after they were uploaded.  So I made a debugger patch that runs the code handler after uploading codes, so that the C2 code branches are always correct.  This ended up creating a new problem - when you send C0 codes, the code handler executes them immediately now, but the data/instruction cache were not properly flushed so the game would crash when it tried to execute with the stale cache.  This wasn't a problem without the C2 debugger patch, because the game would execute one frame before executing the code handler, which would naturally force the cache to be flushed.

Funny how a debugger patch to fix one problem ended up creating another.  Either way, it's all good now, C0 codes and C2 codes won't cause crashing.

Gecko.NET 0.66.7

http://geckowii.googlecode.com/files/Gecko dNet 0.66.7.zip

- Fixed MEM2 protection so that you can see it while debugging channels
- MemView auto-update only updates when looking at MemView tab
- MemView tab is rearranged a bit to make room...
- MemView Selected Address will now go to that address if you press enter in that textbox
- MemView Selected Address history can be actively scrolled through using up/down arrow keys
- Double click an addresstextbox to add its contents to the history automatically
- addresstextbox cut/copy/paste stuff works correctly now
- Data textboxes can now take up to 10 digits for doing conversions, but remember that when its value gets used it must be an 8 (or 4 or 2) digit hex value.
- Loading GCT list the first time isn't slow anymore

- exisendbyteAA protection (I think this should stop some connection problems like e.g. MH3 loading screen freeze)

- Renamed Search Groups to be Multi-Search instead
- Search result context menu now makes correct New GCT Codes for 8- and 16-bit

---

- Patch debugger to support extra PowerPC exceptions!  The Program and ISI exceptions will now be caught by the code handler.  This should allow you to recover from more crashes.  What are these?

ISI exception happens when an instruction can't be fetched.  Let's say something terrible happens and somehow the game tries to branch to a memory address that doesn't exist.  Before, you would get a hard freeze and Gecko.NET would lose communication with the Wii.  Now, you can go to the BP tab and hit Step Into and it will show you what caused the ISI exception.

Program Exception is any time a fetched instruction cannot be executed.  For instance, before if it would fetch .word 0x00000000, it would crash and lose communication.  Now, you will get a Program Exception and BP tab Step Into will take you to the illegal instruction.

Program Exceptions are also useful for other reasons.  There is an instruction called trap.  trap will automatically cause a Program Exception.

You could in theory use trap to set up multiple XBP's.  Change all of the instructions you want to BP on to trap.  Then, when any of them are executed, the game will hit that BP.  You will have to restore the original instruction in order for the game to continue execution.

Gecko.NET 0.66.8

http://geckowii.googlecode.com/files/Gecko dNet 0.66.8.zip

-fixed memview scrollbar (you're welcome Stuff)
-fixed 1932 send codes crash (you're welcome Bully)
-move unpatched debugger notification to the Tools tab (you're welcome Deathwolf); it tells you what code handler you're using now.  You want 1931 or 1932.  Other values are bad
-Wii crash notification with prompt for switching to BP tab
-auto-reset code handler prompt if the crash happened inside of it
-1931 patch: skip code handler if at breakpoint; can now debug codes that crash the code handler (e.g. C0 code that crashes)

---

To see an example of the new 1931 and 1932 patches, send the following C0 code.

C0000000 00000001
00000000 4E800020

This will cause a crash on .word 0x00000000 in the code handler.  1931 and sometimes 1932 would fail hard on this code.  But with the new patches, once you send the code, you'll get notified that the Wii crashed and it will ask if you want it to switch to the BP tab.  If you say yes, it will show you the instruction that crashed.  Since a C0 code is in the code handler, it will also ask if you want to reset the code handler.  You should say no this time (because it was a code crash) but sometimes you might want to say yes (if it was a debugger crash).  Go to disasm tab and nop the .word 0x00000000.  Then the game will recover.

Hey guys I'm back. I understand that this has stopped moving forwards. Bully, have you worked on this more? Have you put your magic to use more? Anybody else? It seems that I'll have to make another post to inspire more work to be done on this almost perfect program.

I PM'd dcx2 a little while back and he said he'll release the updated source code for Gecko.NET. He said he'll try to work on it during the holiday break. So, after it gets released, maybe the project will move forward again... Hopefully...  tongue

I remember when I updated to 0.66.8 from whatever I was using before their was a massive increase of how fast the dissembler tab would skip unmet breakpoint conditions, what version was this first implemented in? Another speed increase like that and it might be possible to isolate an individual read/write from/to a stack address

If there's any code at all that you want to be button activated, or even able to toggle on & off, and I have the game, just PM me and I'll make it happen
