You are playing GBA game on No$GBA? That is pretty much crazy you know =D
No$GBA should only be for DS games =)

Anyways do you guys like No$GBA just because of speed factor? =)
dude it's the only GBA emulator that made the full transition from GBA emulator to DS emulator... that's why it has a very loyal following...

I still don't get the fact that people love this emulator just becuse of the speed... this speed feature of NO$GBA is actually its main downfall in terms of stability

They all run really slow on my computer... No$ Zoomer doesn't work at all...
Anyway I only use emus for challenges, so I can speed it up while I grind. And when I just get impatient, expecially on slower games like Pokemon Red. I do use an R4 pretty extensively, however, lately I have preffered to buy the games (although I may use R4 first so I can make sure it's not crap).

Still VBA is more suitable for GBA games

I use NO$GBA with Zoomer, it works perfectly for me. I just wish I could change this opening pic in Zoomer :)

Desmume has proved better than No$GBA for me. For any game even. In fact, even with the Zoomer, No$GBA is like...10 times slower than Desmume. Plus Desmume can play more games for me, and won't crash every five minutes.

So yeah, I use Desmume.

I think the reason that some people have better luck with Desmume is because their rigs are better; Desmume needs a good system to run at peak efficiency. No$ is good for comps that... well, that suck. Like mine.

Sometimes it could also be because of the version they're using.

What I've experienced with NO$GBA 2.6a with the NO$Zoomer, I have had lagging with most recent games. And while some don't work at all.

The latest version of DeSmuME is 0.9.6 incase some of you might not know already.

Oh and also... if anyone is downloading DeSmuME, don't forget to check what the version is. ;D

I originally used DeSmuME because you didn't have to convert the save files to work with PokeSav, and it could run HG/SS without the need of a patch. I still use it now.

Desmume's emulation is far superior if you have a computer that can handle it. In fact I'm pretty sure that it emulates it perfectly, once again, if your computer is good enough to handle it. If you have a crappier rig then no$gba will work better.

I like No$Gba. I have had every game working with it (all others than Black&White, but I think those are gonna work too). I've had 2x more troubles with Desmume, I think it doesn't like my computer and it's soooo slow. If I play Pokémon Black in Desmume, it works right but I have only 50% speed, if I play on No$Gba it plays in full speed, only problem is that I can't save.
No$Gba is an old emulator already, so that's why you have problems to play new games.

EDIT: Now Black works almost at full speed in Desmume, I don't know why but it works better with older version of Desmume...

Anyone has Club Nintendo codes that you don't need? I want those.
If you have one code for me I can trade you my Explorers of Sky code as I can't put it because I have registered already one. (Registered my brother's game and now I can't register mine...) Someone have same thing? PM me.
I know there's nobody who wishes to do this xD
I'm talking about Club Nintendo of Europe.

DeSmuME for me. It's so much better than No$GBA, because it runs smoother (and my PC isn't even designed for gaming!) and at about 220% without limiting framerate on maximum settings.

I wanna know how you guys get Desmume work so fast on your computers. I have good computer but I dunno about Desmume settings. In No$Gba, I don't need to even look at settings and it's always full speed (Almost, only thing where I can't get No$Gba full speed is Pokéathlon but I can always do that on my DS Lite)

Late- Check the DeSMuMe faq. I made it 200% faster.
I choose depending on the game.

Desmume 0.9.6 hands down. If you know how to configurate the settings fitting to your needs then nothing can surpass this emulator.

DeSMuMe has a fake wifi plugin, but the developers actually managed to access GTS (Global Trading Station).

how some of u people get pokemon white/black to work on desume, i'm jealous the games are very very slow on desume, and I can't even access the menu or save on desume with the new pokemon games, and save state does not work on desume cuz when i try to load a game there was a error.

No$Gba is fast and I so wished you could save with n0$gba, though i had the same problem of not even able to access the menu with white/black.

but I vote for no$gba cuz it runs fast for the games u can play on it.

Um yes it does well one build of it does any way (Well it supports Nintendo WFC anyway)

I don't why people have problems with Desmume, I run it fine all the games I tried run at full speed (sometimes there is lag but thats to be expected) I don't admin privileges to use any features or anything like that. Now don't get me wrong No$ is good I have used for many happy years but I rarely use it now because it has crashed on several times and some games I have tried on it just don't work or crash on me (mind this could be because of my settings). But to me personally I would say Desmume but No$ is also a very good emulator.

DeSmuME 0.9.6 is your answer for not working save states
