    I tried playing Pokemon White on NO$GBA, emulation was so damn smooth, but the emulator itself was full of nothing but unfixable issues, so i switched to DeSmuME, no issues at all, except the game is very sloow. What settings do i change so i can get the game running on original framerate?

    What do you mean by lowering the resolution? shortening the window size or lowering the game's display resolution?

    Unfortunately, that does not work even in the slightest.

    I'm not sure, I haven't used it since it added internal rendering options.

    I'll try out Open GL and 2 Frameskips.
    I got Pokemon White to run on NO$GBA by using 2 AR Codes, but it's not worth playing on NO$GBA, the game has black lines on every shadows, you can't save no matter what code you add in, and the game is super sensitive to crashing.

    You have to use the JIT interpreter. Doubles FPS on my laptop.

    I have a 2.27Ghz Intel I-3 dual core, 4gb 1600mhz DDR3, Intel HD 3000 chipset for GPU and it runs DS fine with JIT.

    Turn on JIT (dynamic recompiler) for HUGE speedup:

    • For Windows users: in main menu, choose Config -> Emulation Settings, check “Use dynamic recompiler” or add to command line “––cpu-mode=1″
    • For Linux users: add to command line “––cpu-mode=1″
    • For Mac users: In the Emulation menu, choose Emulation > Show Emulation Settings. Then in the Emulation Settings panel, select Dynamic Recompiler. To keep JIT as the default setting, click ‘Save Settings as Default’.
