I used to follow the development of these two emulators quite closely, after a while my checking became a little less frequent. But today I decided to try out both again iDeaS 220.127.116.11 Beta and DeSmuME 0.9.6 and they have both dramatically improved. Even issues such as people requesting zoom have been addressed. I tested advanced wars - days of ruin and found it to work very smoothly on both, although it appears I lean towards DeSmuME at the moment because I could not seen to get the sound working. What are peoples opinions of these two friendly rivals at the moment?
