    Here's the Feature Request artifact.

    Just want to discuss if emulating games at that speed (as an option) is nice or not.

    There are some games that require fast reflexes on the touch screen and button pressing.

    Notable ones are Pokemon Ranger series, Mega Man Star Force series, and WarioWare series.

    When played in these speeds, it will be easier to play the game without having to mess around with mouse clicks and button mashing in a tight frenzy. A major problem for the button mashing is that there are times computers can't detect the key presses that fast, and goes into a jam (like pressing "z", "x", "c" keys at the same time).

    You can already change the max speed in DeSmuME 0.9.5. Go to Config->Hotkey Config and look at the "Increase Speed" and "Decrease Speed" fields for the keys you need to use ('=' and '-').
    Personally, I mapped the numpad's "+" and "-" keys to these functions, and assigned the "Toggle Rasteizer" function to something else in order to avoid conflicts.

    You can also use the gamepad buttons as hotkeys, as long as emulation isn't paused...

    Oh, that I didn't realize.

    Thank you! I will have to close the artifact that I created.

    I'd like that for Sonic Chronicles. All the tapping and sliding is starting to get really annoying, and my characters are kinda gimped if I give them all the insta-move chao. Ought to be a bit easier now.
