single step debugger

Help I need a working single step debugger for c64 or a simulator that could load prg files.

Here's what I've tried so far and why it didn't work:

1) Hesmon on vice. I do soft reset; it goes to Hesmon at $8000. I choose w 0811 and cursor or spacebar. After a little bit, it starts running without stopping. I'm supposed to hit break, which on positional keymap is tab key, but it's not working. I tried other keymaps no luck, maybe it's hesmon itself.

2) 6502net - I can't load anything without a disassembly file, and it needs to be assembled in as65, which has no manual so I gave up.

3) virtual6502 - loaded prg in a compatible way (defaulting to 7ff start address). It only seemed to load 130 bytes or so, the rest was blank (the program was 344 bytes).

4) vice monitor - I can't figure out how to easily single step. There's z (count) but how do I set the current address? There's g (address) but that just runs it.

Is there any other c64 single step programs or a working simulator?

Ok thanks.

I can't figure out how to make it single step at a certain starting point.

Typically one is debugging a running system and hence you use a break point to start debugging where you want. But if you really want to "jump" to an address and start stepping

Oh, you're talking about the Vice monitor. Yes that worked, thank you!

C64Studio would also fit the bill, it remotes to VICE and provides Run To Cursor, break points and step variants.

C64 Debugger V0.56 by Slajerek/Samar, it can even do single-cycle stepping, you can also feed it a file with breakpoints, compatible with the format Vice uses. It takes a bit of time learning how to use it properly, but once you have... Damn, it's handy! ;)
