ICU64 - C64 emulator hacking tool

You just have to see this one:

YouTube - ICU64: Real-time Hacking of a C64 Emulator

It's awesome in so many level: the realtime seamlessly zoomable memory map, the Mathematica interface...  :Thmbsup:

Here's the project's homepage, with even more videos / samples: ICU64

The way it's used in the video isn't super-impressive - and it looks a lot like he already knew which memory cells to change, rather than using the memory interface to find them. It would also have been nice with an introduction to what the color changes mean.

But pretty cool idea, and I like how it looks. Seems a bit queer with a Mathematica interface, I reckon that it's limited how much of that program's power you can utilize when hooked up to an emulator. But if you're familiar with it, you can probably prototype things quickly with it :)

It´s not necessary to create new levels for Boulderdash - it has been hacked and extended in 100 versions. Paradroid with new levels would be cool. I don´t think too much people will bother around with this but it´s a cool idea to do something like this.
