I've been using SNES9X on the 3ds and I love using the fast forward feature on SMW to skip some long text and complete some levels with challenge, but do you think its possible to add in a rewind feature in the future? That could be pretty useful if you dont make a jump or fail to do a specific glitch. It would be cool to see an update to emulators that will allow that feature.

Savestates work just fine for those things. Rewind would make emulators MUCH heavier spec-wise, as there would be a need to save the entire byte sequence for everything for the 10 or so seconds that MAY end up getting used for the rewind, totally not worth it.

Maybe an auto save state feature that would do a save state every x minutes?
Some emulators already have it. Wouldn't be too bad a feature, although manual savestates are a bit better in my opinion as you don't run the risk of the savestate being in a really weird moment (eg: jumping across a gap or mid-dodge).

    is this like a fetish thing
  • K3N1 @ K3N1:
    Because they obviously need to be warmed
  • K3N1 @ K3N1:
    The person who made the image was probably just thinking of wax melts and said candles shit happens
  • K3N1 @ K3N1:
    Although the wax of a candle could probably be melted down and repurposed with a fresh wick sometimes the wick burns out and the jar is still full
  • M4x1mumReZ @ M4x1mumReZ:
    I dont think a candle is ever going to work on there.
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    no they're actually called candle warmers

    Thought that was a mug warmer.
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    what i don't get is, if you want the smell, but not the ambience of burning a scented candle, why dont you just get an aromatherapy oil diffuser, scented candles are shit anyway they barely smell

    @M4x1mumReZ they're used for that, but they're called candle warmers

  • M4x1mumReZ @ M4x1mumReZ:
    I don't get why they would name it that.
  • M4x1mumReZ @ M4x1mumReZ:
    You wouldn't melt a candle with this, as if it was too big for example then the wax would flood the holder.
  • M4x1mumReZ @ M4x1mumReZ:
    That's my theory btw
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    apparently people use them to melt scented candles instead of burning them which sounds like a very roundabout way to accomplish something

  • M4x1mumReZ @ M4x1mumReZ:
    It would be more recommended though for wax melts.
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    yeah you use candles that come in jars, apparently

    You can get those small yankee candles.
  • M4x1mumReZ @ M4x1mumReZ:
    They come in tiny little jars.

    These are what I am on about.
