You can't use in emulator anything except simple ROM-only cartridges (and then need to add 4 zeros at start of dump).
If there is more on cartridge, it must be emulated, what is not the case, of course.
Otherwise, as Mug UK said - use Steem Debugger.
Famous Schrodinger's cat hypothetical experiment says that cat is dead or alive until we open box and see condition of poor animal, which deserved better logic. Cat is always in some certain state - regardless from is observer able or not to see what the state is.
