Well the liking of No$ is because... you don't have to pay! xD Okay, that was lame joke =D Anyways, I think most of the voters chose No$ because it's quicker and DeSmuME did not have Wi-Fi feature it has now =)

Have been using No$GA for at least a year now....I say....Desmume. After strolling across this forum discussion, and signing up, I did a little testing on my own. I wanted to see if DSemu really lived up to the review and hype. So loaded with an arsenal of oth DSEmu and No$, I tested three games. SoulSilver, Platinum, White.

These are my computer's specs:

Intel H55 Express Chipset
Intel i3 (1st Generation) 550 (3.2GHz)
4GB (2x2) DDR3 PC2-10600
Intel HD Integrated Graphics

Now, I had spent the last 2 weeks trying to get these games working perfectly on No$! And I made little if any progress on this! I still had some major freezing issues, especially with SoulSilver and White. These ranged from random error messages to simply stopping. like nothing happened. Music still played, even animations continued. But whatever was supposed to happen, never did. Whatever. (And no, saving didn't help at all with the crashing! It would only save when you exited, intentionally.

....So I got DSemu. I loaded White first, and used the main screen of Zekrom as an original test basis. No$ would play it, but up to that point, the bottom screen didn't show Zekrom and his undisputed awesomeness. Indisputable. Anyways, I only got three or so green lines of error-ness. And right there frame-rate halved. (It came back after you loaded your game, though)

...With DSemu. I saw Zekrom. And moreover, it was at 60 fps. So I started a new game, and the first thing I noticed was it started, immediately. After a good minute of crash free playing and tweaking, I actually got it to looking like the DS version by getting rid of the black lining around the battle scene. Awesome. And this went with every other version.

BUT!.....In white, with a standard ROM, EXP was broken. Other than that, still great, and that can be fixed....and I'm workin on it. Someone PM me a solution. Not in the mood for Googling.

Platinum held no to little change outside the lining was gone (YES!), the no more random crashing mid-adventure, and the minor fluxing in the tree line. Also the barely there dots on the floor. Still much better.

As for Soul Silver.....Perfect. Me and Ariga (Chikorita) are so happy LOL.

DSEmu only defects are the holes, and the slow saves, and the White EXP Epidemic. Nothing major. And they update DSEmu more often supposedly. (I wouldn' know, having been using No$GBA 2.6 for a year. I will miss NO$ZOOMER though....

AS for general speed?...tie, but who gives a fig-newton?...OK I do a LITTLE....

So DSEmu FTW

==============
AWESOME UPDATE
==============

I Just got White going with EXP and no crashing (so far) so yeah....DeSemuMe for the world.....yeah....

I also think no$GBA is the best route to go with an emulator. I have had little issues with it while using it in-game for Pokemon games or hacks on here. I can use other games not related to Pokemon and it loads and works like a charm.

Desmume works better for me.
It can sometimes be slow but that's only if I doing more then 5 things at once.

You have to patch the later Pokemon games with NO$GBA so they don't crash.

So my vote is on Desmume.

But at the end of the day, It's down to personal preference.

I mean it does not take a lot of time to set up desmume, though it is pretty much RAM dependent. the compatibility of desmume for game cannot be rivaled by NO$GBA. Die Hard NO$GBA fans better re-think. I am once in their league but that was 3 years ago.Desmume has catapulted way beyond No$ gba

I voted for DeSmuMe because Black and White has an overall nicer graphics on it. All I see is broken lines when there are supposed to be shadows in No$Gba

I understand that it's your preference, but from my experience No$ is more stable then Desmume, but it could just be working differently for different people. I chose No$, because trying to play on wifi with Desmume is so obtuse and annoying with my internet set up that I'd rather just play Pokemon online.

That's weird. DeSMUME works faster for me rather than No$GBA... Probably my wacky computer since I use a Windows, which is getting pretty old now that I think about it.

DeSMUme is under active development and probably has optimizations slipped in all the time. It's also a whole lot more accurate and bug-free than no$GBA (which seems to be abandoned).

Not that I know of. At least not within the same comp and without internet. Don't think Desmume can be used to trade online either. Don't quote me on that though. Haven't really tried to use Desmume's 'wifi' option. In fact, I would love to be proven wrong about that

That's a hard choice. No$GBA run smoothly, but crashes too much. DeSmuME runs to slowly, but doesn't crash at all. I first used No$GBA to play Pokemon SoulSilver, but after Ecruteak City, it would crash after I saved and crash when I tried to open it. I then download DeSmuME and played from there. It is a bit too slow, but I adjusted the settings and now, it runs okay...(Just a few slow moments.) In saying that, I would vote for DeSmeME by a photofinish.

I would go out of topic for this reply but here it goes there is another to go over the exp and that is by patching it using dicastia

I've had both No$GBA and Desmume, and Ironically DesMuMe ran better with less issues than No$ did... Of course, I did some tweaks to DesMuMe to help it out xD. All the DS version games worked great on it, hardly any lag, unless I had itunes open or something. My computer is a dual core running 2.1ghz with 3 gigs RAM, so computer wouldn't be too much of an issue for either emulator.

It's not exactly ironically, it's pretty usual :D

Lol thanks for re-wording that better, although I said ironically due to the majority of peeps I know think No$ is better compared to those who use DesMuMe
