Fast-forward key

A fast-forward key would be useful, for skipping boring parts (or forwarding to a relevant section) when watching long demos.

And a rewind key, so you can loop your favorite part over and over again. Whee!

You wouldn't have to run the game logic backwards to do this, just save the state every x ticks, revert to the appropriate save and process the ticks in the remainder without rendering.

But I don't see why that one'd be worth the effort :P

As this is an entire savegame each time it will most likely bring the game down to a crawl.

With small levels and fast computers though...

Anyway, rewinding was Mordeth's idea :P
