    I play on the real thing, though I would like to know what emulator is best. Would be handy for taking screenshots and videos [​IMG]

    What kind of poll is this?
    Obviously the answer is No$GBA, but even it doesn't have very good compatibility. No other emulator even comes close.

    I voted Don't know...I only use the real thing!. Although, before I had my DS, I used No$gba because atleast some DS games worked like Mario Party.

    Edit: I could not get any of the other emulators to even work.

    In my experience iDeaS is best for homebrew, especially for games that need external resources loaded from fat. I like the option to run DLDI patched for R4, which fixes a lot of homebrew that wouldn't work otherwise. NO$GBA is probably the best for commercial games, although i don't ever use it.

    I've never tried an emulator, at least not for NDS..(I've used only VisualBoy Advance for GBA, and it's great)..
    But I am interested what's the best, most advanced NDS emulator for screenshots and such..I've heard (and I see most people here thinks the same way) No$GBA..
