Is there any kind of debugging mode 4DO can be put into ? Specifically to log what files of the 3DO image are being accessed at different points during play?

There isn't any debug options to see what files are being accessed at the current time. I am not sure if anyone is actively working on 4DO enough at the moment to add such a feature, but it wouldn't be a bad idea.

There are some debug options that mostly shows CPU/Audio timings that can be accessed via the command line.

It's indeed true. There is no such option in 4DO.

It would be pretty difficult to do in 4DO, though. Since it's a low-level emulator, it currently does not know what files are being accessed. It knows what sectors of the CD are being read (2k blocks), but it doesn't know the files behind them. It also doesn't know if the game is actually using those sectors or just loading them in case they'll be in use.

Even so, with enough effort, high-level awareness could theoretically be added. It would be a lot of effort, though. I imagine the only way this would occur is if Altmer's HLE emulator is completed and the projects somehow merge. Come to think of it, it's possible his project would have the debug info you're looking for.
