    Hey there, anyone know a good NDS emulator that has save states?

    I'm in need of one right now... o sound or whatever is fine, I just need to be able to play the game and load/save save states.

    Thank you in advance...

    no cash save state does not work yet.

    DeSmuMe save state worked for me but compatibility is very bad compared to no cash

    Yes, I'm looking for one that supports Harvest Moon DS Cute...

    DeSmuMe doesn't load the rom... I get a white screen. Any idea why?

    because DeSmuMe wasn't updated since very long time and its just not realy good atm ... who knows if those guys are still working on it or not ...

    compatibility is just bad with this emu atm.

    think some month back with ensata, everyone was hyped like "WTF i can play some ea games with 2fps !!!!"

    just wait one more year and the emu should be near perfection [​IMG] (at least i hope so)

    Yes I know, but that doesn't have save states.

    I'm looking for an Emulator that is just able to play HMDS Cute, but it must have save states. No sound or color or whatever's fine with me. I just need to be able to play it...

    Save states?

    If you mean real-time saves, and so forth, you can do that with no$.

    I mean Save States as in, the emulator can save your game any time you want, and then load it again to return you to the exact same place in the game.

    Sorta like VisualBoyAdvance's Shift + F1/F2/F3 etc. function, except for DS.

    I've checked No$, but it doesn't have this. Or am I missing something?

    If I am, please let me know... ^^;

    Yes, that is called real-time saving ... and, as I said, no$ has that feature.

    If you mean the Write/Load snapshot thing being save states, then that doesn't work. (For me, at least)

    When I wrote a snapshot and then loaded it, "The rom image has crashed" or something pops up, and the emulator closes...

    Or is it something else?

    If it is, could you guide me through it or something? >.

    snapshots on no$ only work for gba games.

    i think iDeaS have save states.

    Check NO$GBA's changelog, if the latest version has fixed whatever feature you need think whether its worth the couple of dollars to you.
