Hopefully I'm doing this right, the CONTRIBUTING.md on the gitlab repo said this was the place for higan feature suggestions.

My suggestion is some sort of mode that allows you to cap the maximum speed of the emulated game at a percentage less than 100%, or even just a half speed button, it doesn't even need to be extremely configurable. The reason being that I'm bad at games, and old games are hard, so sometimes slowing things down a little can be a nice thing to get past hard sections.

Thanks for all the hard work, higan is pretty dope

BizHawk has a speed setting, it goes down to 50%. It also has Rewind and Frame Advance.

My current setup: Super Famicom ("2/1/3" SNS-CPU-1CHIP-02) → SCART → OSSC → StarTech USB3HDCAP → AmaRecTV 3.10

thanks for the recommendation! looks like it doesn't support SNES on linux currently, though, so that's unfortunately not an option for me

that works, thanks. (although I will say that I would still really want this feature in higan because my god, retroarch has an awful interface)

haha, my workaround was just running minecraft in the background at the same time to slow things down a bit



big props to byuu for adding this. No idea if this was just a coincidence or not, but either way it's much appreciated
