Hi.
Modification that was used in Gensida is not exactly clear r57shell's mod. Yes, it contains most part of his modifications, but:
Part of work is your one (Plane Explorer), part of work is feos's (Hex Editor), some part of work is mine (as I remember it were some merges between Gens-RR, Feos's Gens, and... I really don't remember that all).

You don't need any Gens version to use with Gensida. Gensida already contains embedded Gens. Just read use instruction at its GitHub page.

New version: v1.1.

New features:
  • Register breakpoints (for M68k and VDP);
  • Window plane view in Plane Explorer.
Fixed:
  • High RAM mirror breakpoints (0xFFFFXXXX);
  • Every suspend in debugger now updates VRAM view.
Improved:
  • VDP RAM window.
To set register breakpoints:
  1. Open Debugger->Debugger windows->Register breakpoints;
  2. Set the desired value for some register(s);
  3. At the right side of registers list toggle a register's breakpoint flag (it has the same name with a corresponding register).
  4. To disable register breakpoint, just toggle off its flag.
