it seems setting data/memory breakpoints in VS don't get hit. I'm trying to get to the code that changes memory for a trainer, but without memory breakpoints am I out of luck? I have a big block jasper, so rgloader is not an option. My only option is XBDM plugin. what should I do?

the way im doing it in VS is going to Debug>New Breakpoint>New data breakpoint and putting in the address im looking after. the memory at that address does change, I even tried it on a dummy xex I made that keeps changing a value at a certain memory address, yet when I continue running the target after setting the breakpoint, im not getting any breaks.

Data breakpoints don't work with the JTAG build of XBDM.

I always use breakpoints to debug on my Xenon JTAG. I may be interpreting your post wrong though.

Data breakpoints are different from execution breakpoints. The latter works, the former not so much. @OP you'll need a devkit image with the legitimate XBDM in order to use data breakpoints.

Is the anyways to get a Dev kit Image? I'm able to connect VS2010 Debug but I freeze when i try to breakpoint.

Sorry, I was referring to that they'd need a developers kit or use RGLoader. If I still have the XBDM source laying around, I'll look at fixing data breakpoints so it'll work with a JTAG or RGH.

Yeah every time I try to breakpoint I get this error.

I know this post is old but I'm wondering if anyone ever released a build of xbdm that allows data breakpoints to be set on a retail rgh kernel, for what I'm trying to do I'm not able to use RGLoader. Any help would be much appreciated
