DeSmuME is a freeware emulator for the Nintendo DS created by YopYop156. DeSmuME is also known as YopYop DS is written in C++ for and can play Nintendo DS homebrew and commercial nds ROMs.

It supports many homebrew nds ROM demos as well as a handful of Wireless Multiboot demo nds ROMs. DeSmuME is also able to emulate some of the commercial nds ROM titles which other DS Emulators like iDeaS and Dualis aren't capable of doing so.

Honestly I see a lot of reviews noting about crashing after short periods of time and the like, these users however don't realize it isn't the emulators fault. The emulator generally runs on over 300,000k memory, if your computer cant handle that kind of memory usage then obviously it will crash. I have run the program for an entire day and it didn't crash even once, some minor slowdowns were noted but at the time of my posting this I only had three gigs of ram. So before you give the emulator a bad rating, look at your operating system first and see if it can handle 300,000k memory usage. If it can, you should be seeing near seamless game play swift and accurate touchscreen simulations and rich sound.

Pros
  • Plays many games and plays them clearly.
  • Good sound quality.
  • Excellent touch screen interface.
  • great framerates.
Cons
  • Has a high memory draw (over 300,000k)
