PPSSPP options explained

Rewind snapshot frequency
Since no one seems to have posted about it (or I'm just really bad at finding things), I'm going to try explaining what rewind snapshot frequency (and the rewind system in general) is and what is does. This is my own personal findings, so I'm open to correction if anything here is wrong.

Rewinding is a feature in PPSSPP that, as it suggests, allows you to roll back to earlier parts of the game, which is usually used if you make a mistake. You can set it's key binding in the Settings.
(Esc > Game Settings > Controls > Control Mapping > Rewind).

The way PPSSPP rewinds is by making temporary save states every so often that it can revert to. By default, PPSSPP doesn't do this because it takes up quite a bit of memory. To enable it, you have to set a rewind snapshot frequency.

The rewind snapshot frequency is how often PPSSPP should make one of these temporary save states to revert to. This is measured in frames, meaning that you will have to find out what FPS your version of PPSSPP runs at and then multiply the FPS by the amount of seconds you want between each temporary save state. (for example, if I run at 60fps and I want it to save every 20 seconds, I will have to enter 1800 into the settings. (60*20))
(Esc > Game Settings > System > Rewind snapshot frequency).

Please keep in mind that the temporary save states are accumulative, meaning that whenever a new one is created, the old one is not deleted. This can lead to a massive buildup of used memory if you set the rewind snapshot frequency too low.
Your game will also often stutter while saving temporary save slots, so if that bothers you while playing, be sure to set the frequency higher until it's at a comfortable level.

I apologize if any of this didn't make sense, I've not posted anything on any forums for a long, long time. Ask me if you've got any questions.

EDIT: An additional note I forgot to add on, if you press rewind shortly after rewinding, it will revert to the temporary save before the one you just reverted to, and then the one before that, and so on.
