Hi Michael,

I haven't had the time to test it yet but can you slow it down the
game while you play the game or is everything slowed down before you
run it? will this affect the animation of cutscenes etc? I can imagine
players sometimes just want to slow things down while they play and
not while they're like walking around. (Kind of like bullettime in max
payne or slow in prince of persia). It would be cool if your tool
could support that.

Cheers eelke
