I love that sticky thread that keeps people up to date on things, but as it stands you got NO$ which you can find easily enough, IDEAS and more.

But what do you like most, and why? One have better audio, compatibility nicer, nice added options?

NO$GBA = runs decent amount of games
iDeaS = requires minimum translation between ideas save file and R4 save file (Just need to fill up with FF to make 512kb)

If I want a game that doesn't have AR codes edited, I use emulators and that's the only occasion.
So I use Ideas most of the time, but if ideas doesn't run a game properly I use NO$GBA which requires online save converter.

My personal opinion if you don't care about R4
NO$GBA >>>>> Ideas > desmume
I got my R4 saves to work on No$GBA and vice versus. Just go into the No$GBA options and change the save format from compressed to raw and that should do it. Though you may have to use http://www.shunyweb.info/convert.php to convert them.

Oh I care about R4. I just haven't the idea where to find a legit one anymore since they were discontinued and now I hear shady ones are on the market, but also I'm on spending freeze for like the next 6 weeks so I can't buy one anyways.

I've personally been using NO$, but I did try the other two out. Ideas is pretty nice, but the audio isn't as hot and the compatibility is a bit less, and desmume is just slow and so-so.

I just got this new pc a few days at, a quad core 2.4ghz computer with 3gb of ram and a 256mb radeon installed and surprised me just how badly desmume ran.

Off topic though, thinking of trying that ps2 emulator out as I have 2 games here I can no longer use due to lack of hardware that I kept as I worked on both when I was at Midway years ago...love to play them again.

    Just, in general, sound bars are a scam.

  • Sicklyboy @ Sicklyboy:
    An actual decent to good sound bar is going to be as expensive as a lower end home theater in a box system with less functionality and a poorer sound stage
    Gift
  • Sicklyboy @ Sicklyboy:
    Which is to say you're spending so much money to still have 100% of the sound come from the bottom of the TV.

    You really can't judge based on video reviews as it's not the pure sound coming from it
    Gift
  • KennieDaMeanie @ KennieDaMeanie:
    So any product reviewer can just say spend $200 more on this cause it sounds better be your own judge

    Funny that, I actually just replaced a Yamaha receiver, replaced it with a manufacturer refurbished Denon unit
    Gift
  • Sicklyboy @ Sicklyboy:
    Only reason for replacing is that the Yamaha unit was like 8 years old and didn't support 4k video

    Denon makes good shit

  • Sicklyboy @ Sicklyboy:
    And now that I think of it, only a single device that's plugged into it is even capable of outputting a 4k signal anyway lmfao
