    Just wondering how to use Firmware files in NO$GBA. I use it in DS mode and already have the firmware file, so im not asking for the file or anything, just the proper way to use it with NO$GBA.

    Name the firmware "firmware.bin" and put it in the same folder as the no$gba.exe executable file. If you want to use your BIOS files as well, name them "BIOSNDS7.ROM" and "BIOSNDS9.ROM" and put them in the same spot.

    Silly question but how do you GET the DS Firmware files (I have a both a DS and DSi - but no idea how to 'get' the firmware from them

    There are a couple of DLDI-capable programs that will dump your firmware and BIOS files for you. Searching Google for "ds dump firmware" or something like that should turn up a few results.

    Thanks for that - found some & tried them out - I now can use emulation (to a degree)
