Super Mario Bros.

Play Nintendo DS games on your PC with No$gba, the Nintendo DS and Gameboy Advance emulator.

There are a few Nintendo DS emulators that run some DS games, but never New Super Mario Bros... until now. We got our hands on one of the best Nintendo DS (and Game Boy) emulators: No$gba Gameboy Advance / Nintendo DS Emulator. This emulator will run both Nintendo DS and Gameboy games and every game that we've tried with No$gba has worked - this Nintendo DS emulator is almost perfect! The only thing that's not perfect is the sound, which is 99% there. No$gba works just like the real DS where you need to interact with the bottom screen, in this case you can use your mouse to select stuff.  There is currently no support for WFC, but hopefully future releases will support it. Also note that you'll need to unzip any roms you have to use with No$gba as it doesn't support ZIP files (only .nds).

We dumped our own ROMs to try with this emulator, but if you're unable to dump your own roms, you could try out some Public Domain Nintendo DS roms here. The last release of No$gba is free and you can download it here, but if you'd like the newest version you'll need to donate $2.50 via PayPal and then download the latest and greatest. Support the creator of this wonderful emulator by giving up $2.50 - it's totally worth it as the newest version (v2.6a) works much better than the free (v2.6).  

We used a Intel dual core, 2.66GHz to run this and it was flawless. Here are a few screenshots of games we tried with No$gba:

problem setting up controller, also fullscreen.

i'm very fond of final fantasy. Final fantasy iv was remade for the a result, I'd like t play it. I've downloading this emulator. Unfortunately, I can't figure out how to configure my gamepad (only my keyboard) although I've set up the "Buttons" appropriately, none of them respond and Im forced to use the keyboard. Also, an additional issue....The size of the screen. It doesn't display fullscreen, and I've resorted to using lower resolutions to make it seem bigger. I also downloaded another emulator DeSMu. This app had a full screen option, and controller setup; however, gameplay was very slow in comparison to to the No$GBA emulator. Any help would be appreciated; however, if my issues cannot be resolved, Nintendo DS' aren't really expensive at the pawn shop.

Ich can't play it !!!

If i open No$gba and chose agame in my folder name roms it say Unable to read data .Please turn PoWER off and reinsert the Ds game card.Wht should I do ?:(

NDS Game Failure "HELP"

What you need to do is go into the "options" tab , and select "emulation setup". This will bring you to a page to change the options on your emulator. Now, select your "NDS CARTRIDE BACKUP MEDIA". Select the arrow and choose "EEPPROM 64Bytes". Select "O.K", and go into the "FILE" tab. Press on the "Reset Cartride" selection and you can then play your NDS game or GameBoy game as well.

Your Answer:

To open a nds game on no$gba, you have to verify if the game you have is a .nds type. If it is in a .rar file, extract.

how do u tell it whether its rar or nds?

u said it needs to know whether its an nds or rar well how to i determine that then save it? im not sure if this is the prob, but im trying to play pokemon black and white and i've made it flash 512kbytes (i've also tried every other option) and it still says "The save data could not be accessed. please turn the power off and reinser the D....." it like cuts off there for sum reason. please help i've been trying to do this all day....

Is it possible for anyone to tell me how this works? When i startup it says 'savefile not found, reinsert the ds card '. I am not gonna buy this stuf if i cant test it before.


This works great, I got

This works great, I got pokemon platinum running but how do I add GBA's with this tool to increase the amount of pokemon I can find in my platinum game?

getting started

make sure you know what your downloading first people put viruses and modify all kinds of stuff my kit of virtual boy advanced and no$gba came with every pokemon rom and all work but after testing other games things like sound and graphics do glitch some of the time just remember your running an os inside another one (plus windows sucks) so just deal with glitches also get bittorrent or utorrent then go to and search for rom packs i found a 1100 English rom pack with all the pokemon and mario games plus some i have never heard of. everything i throw at it it had worked enough to play. 1000 thanks to the developers. have fun except the controls for certain games (thanks to the qwerty keyboard) i haven't changed any settings playing pokemon platinum now. Its great virtual boy advanced is the best emulator in existence hope they come out with ds too. no$gba is so close second im speechless especally since every other ds emulator crashes when i try to open games :) good luck everyone.

Bro i am having the same problems with the new super mario bros I AM USING nogba plus nzoomer when you go to world 1a the underwater level and the graphics are all black but can still see yourseft and everything else Dude load the emulater up and go to the other options screen once your there scroll down to when you see EXTRA OPTIONS start ticking the boxes from extra 0 to extra 4 don't select extra 5 because it will slow the emulater down so that's what i did and it worked same as those other water stages too hope this information helps dude


ok, it is NOT WORKING. Every time I have saved it in game, it saves... When I go to load it, after I click 'continue' the screens turn black and nothing happens. I have tried changing it to 'flash 512KB' for nds cartridge backup media and it does not work. I have tried changing the sound, changing the name of the save data, and pretty much everything that people told me to do and it will not work.

what do you do after...

what do you do when you downloaded it, do you extract or what. im not a pro in computers so pls help :)


I'm not a pro too, but... yes! You must extract it.

you have to extract the emulator and the rom

No $gba emulator

When i try to open my pokemon platinum Rom in no $gba, then it shows that "Your Rom image has crashed"
