I wrote this little utility after trying to debug some EEPROM issues today. Inspiration came from @crait’s ArduboyAssistant however this version has been expanded to show 25 bytes at a time (to give context) with the current cell highlighted in the middle. Scrolling left or right moves the memory location one byte back or forward whereas up and down will scroll a complete row (5 bytes) at a time
On the right are the current row’s binary representation:
It could … but it was really a quick utility I developed while trying to sort out a problem with another program!
@crait’s original Arduboy Assistant does the backup and restore of the EEPROM.
If I was gong to spend some time on this application I would implement a ‘slot’ system so that multiple games can co-exist in the EEPROM without overwriting each other. This has been discussed many times:
Slots would be ideal, but for now I’d be okay with just the backup option. I’d prefer your program since it comes with a FOSS license. I may try to add the download/upload feature to your program, in which case I’d send you a patch.
