Playdate Simulator debugger: can't continue from breakpoints on Linux

Platform: Linux (Ubuntu)


Using VSCode example project + debug extension.

  1. Manually launch the Playdate Simulator (working around a timeout issue with the extension) (no longer necessary with latest extension version)
  2. Open .vscode/settings.json and comment out the preLaunchTask
  3. Open source/main.lua
  4. Set a breakpoint somewhere in main.lua (ex: inside setupGame function)
  5. Open "Run and Debug" tab in navigation menu
  6. Ensure "Playdate: Debug" is selected in the dropdown menu and then press the green start button
  7. Once the breakpoint is hit, press the "continue" button in the debugger controls

Expected: The simulator continues executing

Actual: The simulator does not continue executing


Early breakpoints (before update) were causing problems at one point but I thought I had them sorted out. I'll take a look at this thanks.

I believe I have this fixed, thanks!
