What's the problem? Describe what went wrong.
While Dolphin has a very useful debugger built-in (well, as long as you launch it with -d parameter) it lacks an option to create a memory dump of the emulated console's RAM. Although you can workaround this with external tools (e.g. by creating a memory dump of the whole emulator process using Windows Task Manager), the resulting dump is always super big as it includes all memory used by Dolphin, not just the emulated console's RAM (which should be 40 MB for GameCube games and 88 MB for Wii games AFAIK).

I don't think what you're stating is correct? Dolphin has MEM1 dump, ARAM dump, and you don't need -d to launch the debugger anymore. Are you sure you're using it right, I've used memory dumping a lot.
