      Well, I have both now. I have always used NO$GBA and it was pretty good to me, IMO. But in Pokemon HG and SS, it started crashing every one hour or so, so I downloaded Desmume. Desmume is still in development and its stable release version is obsolete. It's slow and has rather 'limited' options.

      I suggest NO$GBA for NDS games. Maybe it won't crash like it did to me. Desmume, on the other hand, probably will improve later on, but now it's just not fully developed.

        Desmume wins only with Pokemon Mystery Dungeon 3 - because of save states and possibility for save in-game. For the rest games, No$ is just awesome.

          Desmume is great it has Wifi support and doesn't crash on HG/SS. It runs very slow but it has a gba slot and you can change the size of the window. Nocash needs a program called nocash zommer for that

              I using No$gba for playing some pokemon fine except working on PC inside Pokemon Center and Pokeathlon because the speed problem. So, Desmume is best choice for anything.

                I use No$GBA. My comp can barely run Desmume... at least, when it's simulating SLOT-2 usage.

                And I don't really emulate much Pokémon anyways; I'd prefer to save up and get a real copy. All the other games, on the other hand...

                  I recently made the swith to Desmume from No$GBA. Desmume runs Platinum and SoulSilver without any problems. I couldn't even get SS to work on No$GBA.

                    No$GBA cause its faster. No$Zoomer is not that hard to get though. Desmune just causes my comp to crash. Could be cause my comp sucks...

                      Yeah, I use No$Zoomer. Raises compatibility through the roof. Plus, you can enlarge the screen and do all sorts of stuff. Much better.

                      I only use Desmume for the SLOT-2 emulation.

                      And Super Princess Peach, since No$GBA doesn't support it.

                        Desmume: needs admin rights to use keyboard
                        No$gba: doesn't

                        Note:
                        NO$GBA C: works 2 times better then No$gba
                        + its fixed for the 3D of pokemon better!

                          NO$GBA to the win!
                          DeSmuMe is too slow and loses some parts in some sprites...

                          NO$GBA has its own 3D renderer which makes it go 1.5x faster than OpenGL.
                          Also with some great options in NO$GBA 2.5c

                            I'm using both. It depends on game
                            But... all DS games except PMD Sky are better on No$GBA since it's quicker.

                                NO$GBA, definitely.
                                I've tried Desmume before, but a majority of the games I've tried weren't compatible with it (but were compatible with No$)

                                Or instead of finding out which would be better to pirate games you could just buy them and have them work 100% of the time.

                                    When I first read this topic, No$GBA was losing.

                                    Now it's winning.

                                    This makes me happy! ^.^

                                      I literally just downloaded NO$GBA.
                                      The only game I have right now is Fire Red and it's been working fine with absolutely no lag at all and saved perfectly.
                                      I couldn't even manage to get the Desmume download to work.

                                        DeSmuMe is too slow and loses some parts in some sprites...

                                        NO$GBA has its own 3D renderer which makes it go 1.5x faster than OpenGL.
                                        Also with some great options in NO$GBA 2.5c

                                        im not trying to argue but dude do your homework... DeSmuMe has faster 3D renderer than No$GBA.. and in fact it can run all the sprites and graphics of most games in full detail at 100% speed.

                                        and source development wise... desmume has made drastic advances for the past two years compared to NO$GBA's last update (January 2008)

                                        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? =)

                                          @Ash493: It's No$GBA.

                                          I've been using No$ for nearly 2 years, and it rocks. DeSMUME is allright, but it's slower than No$.
