REWIND like snes9x

Hi,
could it be possible to make a rewind custom key ????
snes9x has this option and so many amiga games are really hard...
A REWIND could help, it works like prince of persia : sands of time...
It could be fun !
You can set the number of MB used to rewind and it's done !
It works like a video tape REWIND, now, perhaps it's not easy to code ? or boring ?

Why don't use savestates instead?
They are already here, and only takes a try to see if an area is hard or not .

Maybe it possible to code a rewind feature (i don't know how this works), but, the Amiga is a very different system from a SNES a think .

See ya!

That reminds me, I have to modify my Input settings so that I can press a key to save and another key to load.

Is there a GUI for Snes9X for the Amiga?

There is "re-recorder" but it has never been fully stable, it will lose sync very randomly, practically impossible to debug, no one has managed to find how to duplicate it 100%.

Search for "re-recorder" in full winuaechangelog.txt that comes with source archive for details and instructions.

Thanks Tony,
I think about it today, because i was playing with the assembler and run the code and i stay blocked in a loop.
No way to get out of it, then, i thought : if i could have made a rewind !!!!
I said that because i wrote lines and lines and forgot to update my source.
But, it's not so important, it was just a test.
ps: could winuae save text we type during the last 30 mins or perhaps less in a temp, like this if something goes wrong, we can have a way to find our last work. Perhaps it's already possible ?

The best tool to use for this job is a debugger where you can trace your code step by step and figure out why it is stuck in an infinite loop.

Modifying UAE to simplify coding is like buying a rocket launcher to kill a fly.

Debuggers are dedicated to code tracing, they will do a much better job than UAE. That is not to say UAE does not have its uses for debugging, it is immensely useful in many ways especially for reverse engineering, but for pure coding an debugging you are much better off with a debugger.
