Thanks for the unexpected link! Well, some info & pics then:

PCEmon is an RS232/TTL debugging tool for hackers/developers, but it also has some useful features for non-technical people as well. Some features:

* Back up BRAM (save-files) to your PC, edit them, save them back to the PC-Engine (finally!)
* Upload your own code to RAM and run it. Upload larger files to CD-RAM and run them.
* Freeze a game in progress and view its screen data or RAM.
* Upload image data to VRAM for viewing on the actual hardware.
* Hex dump or Binary dump any part of the PCE's address space.
* Upload data to any part of the PCE's address space.
* PCEmon can run as a stand-alone ROM or be embedded in games (eg: CD System Card.)
* Dump the current screen as a .PCX image.
* Disassemble any part of memory.

** USER BEWARE ** about using a high-voltage RS-232 connection.

Now a more-or-less public release version (1.25.3) is on my page.

The latest addition is dumping VRAM as BG/SPR tiles in a .PCX file.

A new version (1.27.2) is on my page: http://www.chrismcovell.com/PCEmon/index.html

Changes include savestates and trainers on the real hardware (using a hacked System Card.)

Also, a video:
