    Some games like smash, risk of rain 2, Mario kart you can't just pause and close the game and reopen and it be there. I am looking for homebrew where I can just freeze certain points in games.

    It sounds like the "quickly save" function in the simulator?

    Doesn't exist, no save state.

    Could be possible but no one really have came up with any way of obtaining it. You have save tool like JKSV, and Checkpoint to go back to a previous save point if need, just no save state like available on VBA.

    If such a homebrew existed, it would probably need to back up the entire memory area, which would make the save file size as large as 3.6G/4G.
    That sounds crazy, but I think it's possible.:rofl2:

    It doesn't matter if its possible or not because its just too impractical. Save states work for older games because they're a lot smaller.

    And also it is hard to achieve on running system without full documentation. Emulators do that with ease because they can freeze everything whenever they want. With savestates you need to replace everything while system is still running - including threads, registers, stacks, and count to that issue with aslr.
    Just forget about it.
