NO$GBA DS Emulator

NO$GBA is a good emulator with a high compatibility rate with DS and GBA games. It offers almost everything that you need in an emulator.
However, you might experience some distorted sound while playing certain games. This could be caused by problems with sound emulation or synching due to a lag in the frame rate. But despite these issues, NO$GBA is still popular and well-supported by the gaming community and GBA.
