So as you know, I spend a lot of time trying to figure out how to make glitches be a useful and fun thing as opposed to something that makes you want to break your console. I also like them to somewhat accurately reflect the kind of issues that can arise in real software, and a lot of this has to do with taking advantage of how RAM and VRAM are laid out.
At some point in the past, I was presented with a unique way of analyzing crash dumps: Someone had found that if you converted them to images, you could actually spot patterns indicating if there was a problem in the stack or the heap based on how it looked. I remembered this and was unable to find that. But! In my searches, I found something even better.
If you've ever used an emulator (PSSST, I wrote one at one point), you might have noticed tools built in to let you see the VRAM contents. Haywire is kind of like that, but for the RAM of running programs in Windows. You can actually watch the contents of RAM update in real time!
What's more, you can open and view files. It doesn't "know" how to read images, but if you know the line width of your image and whether to interpret it as 32, 24, or 16-bit, you can see ... something. And it will be righteously scrambled. Here are some dumps I made today:
