This afternoon was a very intense debugging session
Nah, I joke, I just played Sonic R and Virtua Fighter Kids with my debug cartridge plugged on my Saturn

I unlocked Sarah's movie

Unfortunately, I lost against Dural during last (bonus) stage, but at least I was stronger than Saturn BIOS Backup Library

Debug session using my good old SatLink tool.
Virtua Fighter Kids save file is read from/saved to SD card.
And as a bonus, backup related functions send debug messages
 to my dev laptop while the game is running

There's still a lot to do before getting something good, but today's debug session showed that current hardware (cartridge's PCB, CPLD firmware) and software (SH2 firmware) are working (more or less) fine
