The Nintendo DS is a cool gadget. It can play games, take and view photos, surf the Internet and many other features that come in this small package. The commercial Nintendo games are the best there is. The Nintendo DS is also famous for its innovative touch screen games; it revolutionized gaming and fun. But if and only for playing games, why not bring the Nintendo DS to the computer?
The idea of emulating gaming platforms is not new. Nintendo consoles such as Gameboy and Game Boy Advance; and Sony’s PlayStation and Playstation 2 have emulator versions for the PC. In late 2004, the prototype of future NDS emulator was released. ‘NDS Emu’, the first emulator, came with a demo file; it could not play commercial games. Of course, subsequent developments of the program were undertaken. Here is a list of Nintendo DS emulators available; they can be downloaded from the Internet.
Dualis, the second emulator released in 2005, is plugin-based for the Windows OS. Written in x86 assembly and C++, this emulator is able to record videos using the VFW encoding system. The output is in AVI file. However, the Dualis could not run dumps of Nintendo DS cartridges. The Dualis could be downloaded from
NO$GBA, is a freeware Nintendo DS emulator and the first one to do a successful emulation in its 2006 release. Originally a Gameboy Advance emulator, it is now capable of running both commercial and homebrew Nintendo DS games.

The latest NO$GBA version is 2.9, while the 3.2 is available for those who would like to make a donation.
iDeaS, another successful Nintendo DS emulator, could also run commercial games for the Windows OS. With the OpenGL, iDeaS emulates ARM7 Gameboy Advance processor and ARM9 dual screen processor. It could run many commercial Nintendo DS ROMs, although with a bit graphical errors, such as the Pokemon Diamond & Pearl and Super Mario 64 DS. For the touchscreen, the mouse cursor is used.
Download the latest freeware Windows gaming or debugversion of NoGBA emulator.
Can’t decide which version of No$GBA you should download? ⏳ If you are not a programmer and all you want to do is play some free NDS rom files and GBA games you should download No$gba Windows Gaming version. It has all the features needed for running your Mario, Pokemon and Zelda games. Now Windows debug version of the no$gba should be more interesting for anyone who would like to program for Game Boy Advance or DS or maybe do some deeper digging in how the games are made. Both versions are free so feel free to test them out.
So, You want to be a Game Boy Advance programmer, huh?
Good! More power to you! If there’s anything the video game industry needs, it’s more programmers, since more programmers means more games! Whether the GBA / Nintendo DS will be the first console system you’ve developed for, or the tenth, you could not have made a better choice. The GBA is especially easy to get into because you can program for it in the languages that we all know and love: C and C++. There’s no Assembly required (Bah! Pun not intended, I swear!) like there is with the original Game Boy, or the convoluted hardware of the PlayStation 2. Additionaly, it’s cheap! Heck, you don’t even need Game Boy Advance hardware to program for it.
So, What do I need to get started?
First and foremost, you’re going to need to need some knowledge in the C and/or C++ programming languages. If don’t know C++ already, go read some tutorials, take a class, buy a book, whatever. Once you learn the language, it will be your most valuable tool for programming on virtually any platform.
* Your favorite Operating System
Chances are, the computer you’re on right now will be all you need. Hardcore Linux users will tell you that Linux is the only way to go if you want to program console games, but truth be told, Windows will do quite well. In this day and age when the gap between the *nix users and Windows users is increasing, the gap between the OSes themselves is greatly decreasing. Utilities like WINE let you run some Windows programs on a Unix/Linux system, and Cygwin allows Windows users to run Unix/Linux programs, too. So, whatever you’re using right now will be fine. (unless you’re on an Amiga or an OS/2 machine, or something wacky like that)
* An Editor
So, what programs do you need to write GBA code? Technically, you don’t need anything more than a simple text-editor! Of course, if you decide to crank out code in Notepad.exe, you’re just going to make your life a living hell. Windows users: Do yourself a favor and pick up something like Borland C++ or Microsoft Visual Studio. Linux users: Emacs is popular. 🙂
* A Compiler
Now that you can write the code, you’re going to need to compile it into a binary file that the GBA (or an emulator) can actually understand. Since the Game Boy Advance runs on an ARM processor and isn’t in the x86 family, (i.e. 386, Pentium, P3, etc.) just hitting a “Build” button in Visual Studio (or whatever editor you’re using) won’t work. You’re going to need to compile your code specially for the GBA with a handy program called GCC, or more specifically, ARM/Thumb GCC. Additionally, Windows users are going to need some barebones Cygwin files, since GCC is natively meant for Unix and Linux systems. (See Your Favorite Operating System above, if you don’t know what Cygwin is.)
ARM/Thumb GCC for Windows: gameboy/armgcc.zip
Cygwin library: gameboy/cygwin.zip
Full set of binutils: gameboy/armgcc2.zip
Standard GNU include header files: gameboy/arminc.zip
Create a directory anywhere on your harddrive, and call it something like “armgcc,” or anything else that’s easy to remember. Extract armgcc.zip, armgcc2.zip, and cygwin.zip into it. Within that directory, create two more called “include” and “lib.” Move any *.a files from the “armcss” directory into the “lib” directory. Extract arminc.zip into “include.” Finally, you need to create a special batch file. Name it setup.bat or whatever you want, and include a line like this in it:
path=[Path to armgcc directory];%path%
For example, mine looks like this: path=C:\Misc\Programming\GBA\dev\armgcc;%path%
Now save it, and be sure to run that file before trying to compile anything, or nothing is going to work right!
* An Emulator
Once you actually write and compile some code, you’re going to need something to run it. Since, at the time of this writing, It is nearly impossible to get a Flash Advance Cartridge for GBA developers, this is where emulators come into play. iGBA and Mappy Virtual Machine are both excellent Windows emulators (Mappy has, by far, the most options) and VGBA is a DOS based emu that seems to have the highest compatibility with all the demos out right now, but as you might expect from a nogba site I would highly suggest you download the latest Windows debug version of the No$GBA emulator.
