Custom save script - The 'save' icon on the desktop points to a simple script (/sbin/PuppySaveSetup) that checks if a savefile is in use and then loads save2flash.. If no save file is being used, pupsaveconfig is loaded instead.
Faster shutdown - When you shutdown Puppeee Arcade, you'll be asked whether or not you want save your session. Choose 'No' to speed up shutdown when you don't need to save new settings.
Less disk usage - Auto save file usage is disabled, and tmp directories are deleted when not needed, reducing HDD noise, power consumption, saving savefile space and increasing the life of your USB or SD card.
