    Having gone through topics and not finding much info for it. I'm pretty much looking for info on what programs work best for a starter to create a game for DS/GBA (No intent on touch screen use to be honest). Any help would be much appreciated.

    First you need to learn C/C++. Then use devkitpro whick include everything needed : librairies, compiler, examples.. Take a look at the examples and at the libnds documentation to understand specific functions. You can also use others librairies like NFlib :)

    DS Game Maker is incredibly glitchy at the moment and the compiler doesn't even work. It is practically unusable unless you are an expert in it, in which case you would just code everything without DS Game Maker.

    Wait until James releases DS Game Maker X. It is much better but it will take a while before it is released.

    DS Game Maker uses PAlib, which is an outdated lib...
