Emulator Issues #5370
More convenient RAM modification / RAM watch
RAM search is already implemented as part of the Cheat Manager.
However, this doesn't include a RAM watch feature that'd allow the tracking of multiple addresses yet, and using AR-Codes is a very unconvenient way of modifying the found addresses ad hoc. Being able to do that would be very useful when hunting for glitches, since LUA support doesn't seem to be implemented yet.
I hope it isn't too much to ask. I realize this feature would be of little use to most people, but it shouldn't be too difficult to add, since a working RAM search has already been implemented.
It could also make it easier to come up with more complicated AR codes.

In the meantime, a program like Cheat Engine or MHS (Memory Hacking Software) can be a quite valuable tool in Dolphin hacking if you know what you're dealing with (the pointer to MEM1 or MEM2, the reversed byte ordering that make 16-bit and 32-bit comparative sub-searches rather senseless in MHS, etc.). Especially if you're familiar with hex editing, and/or want to use "scripting" in a way or another.
