Lately, it would seem to me that Desmume is significantly faster and more stable, and even has more features, so yeah!

Desmume, due to the wi-fi. But I started using it a long time ago when NO$GBA crashed at the Dialga/Palkia encounter scene. :o
Which version of DeSmuME is able to use Wi-Fi?
And maybe how does it work :D

I dont really use DS style emulators, but if I can figure out how to get Pokemon ROM hacks to play properly, I'd be using NO$GBA since it can throttle Fire Red to the speed Ive wanted.

NoGBA is better for DS games though.

I'd say NO$GBA, but there is also NO$GMB too. NO$GMB crashes, so you would be better with TGB_Dual @ Emulator_Zone. DeSmuME is so slow... NO$GBA is faster.

Yes, you are right... unfortunately creator does not continue working on it.

I think no matter what DesMuMe. Maybe it is slow but if you press Tab button, it will fasten. Also, i tried playing White on NoGba, it didn't work. Again, tried HeartGold, it didn't work. Even Platinum don't work on NoGba. But it is super on Gba games and two times better than VBA. But on NDS, i would select DesMuMe.

I don't know when you tried it and what version you used but you must've used EXTREMELY outdated version =D
Because when Platinum came out in English I played it on No$GBA with no actual problem =)

I choose NOGBA.
Pros: Fast, Good stability, Compatible
Cons: Bad graphic quality, Cannot maximize (Yes, I know about NO$ZOOMER), Less functions (in general), and the debug edition is up to $200!!!!!

I dont choose DeSmuME because it's slow, and that is the only reason!

no$ no$ no$.
the only problem it has is known as lack of care (A.K.A nobody is updating it)
but i think most of the skilled hackers in pc should take over making a hacked and always updated version to insure that hacking is alive.
i see that most of the people around me are skilled hackers but they don't bother because they want the best quality as in b&w but emulating them either requires a 100 cheat codes or it will be slow like hell.

I personally use both but this is what i think about them
Desmume
PRO : its got the wifi feature that lets you connect to wfc using a virtual wi-fi
no need of extra program to make the screen bigger unlike no$gba that needs no$zoomer or programs in the same neighboorhood
can also use GBA slot for Pokemon 4th gen in order to migrate emerald pokemon to Pal Park
Cons: uses high RAM so might not be good for people with bad CPU or in other words laggy. uses the .dsv save file which is their own save file that not much program support to edit it even though you could make it as a .sav file
No$gba
Pro : faster uses less RAM than desmume GBA link feature save files are on .sav
cons : small screen needs another program to make it bigger Action Replay line not as many as desmume
I use desmume most of the time :D

No$ for me, it seems to me that Desmume isn't completely developed yet, and No$ is very reliable. It's also very simple which makes it easier to work with.

I have both emulators i used to prefer No$Gba because of the speed factor, but in pokémon games the 3D isn't supported correctly. HG & SS crashes every hour, and you can't play ANY NEW pokémon roms whitout Action Replay Codes to pass Nintendo security!!!! In the beginning Desmume did not work in my PC but since the 0.96 version it allowed me to play ALL DS games!!!! So for desmume win (maybe it's slower than No$Gba but it do not crash and i don't need to beg someone for giving me the AR codes to play Black & White. (Yeah using No$Gba Zoomer allow you to have a larger screen but the framerate is also slow in other games like Castlevania (Alls DS Castlevania) it is simply unplayable!!!!!!

When I used to use emulators I almost always used No$GBA. But a while back I started playing DeSmuME, and it looks more smoother in my opinion. But I used No$GBA more, so...

It's too demanding on hardware to be considered as "super" especially when the new DeSmuME has everything DS emulator needs.

Some people were talking about DesMu stability... That's a ********. My Japanese HG ROM was crashing on DesMu every 5 minutes, and on No$GBA not once! Yes, DesMu have smoother rendering engine and no 3D errors in title screen, but it got buggy when I used the camera angle cheat in HeartGold, while Nocash doesn't.
And when playing Pokemon Black, the differences in rendering are inappreciable, but DesMu was working slow even in battle (what doesn't happen with HeartGold).

Perhaps DesMu is better, but it works to slow on my PC (about 60%-70% of real speed), so I prefer No$GBA.

I believe that Desmume is better as although slow at times, it supports more complicated games in terms of graphics like B/W.

The only problem is that I can't play HG because the character and Cyndaquil overworlds glitched up and the game freezes when the black screen to change scenes/ enter battle appears.

I've used No$GBA before, and my games wouldn't save. For instance, I was playing Harvest Moon: Island of Happiness. I tried saving, but it 404'd me (metaphorically) and I had to restart. I tried using AR cheats, but it didn't take, so I RAGEQUIT that. I'll try DeSMuMe tommorrow when I get a new laptop. In fact, I'll try both.
