How to Convert DeSmuME to NO$GBA


The DeSmuME Nintendo DS emulator enables you to play your favorite games on a bigger screen, but it is not the only software of its kind. Many gamers alternate between DeSmuME and another popular Nintendo DS emulator No$GBA because some games are more compatible with one than the other. The problem is, if you are already playing the game on one emulator and then have to switch over to the other, you risk losing all your progress because of save game incompatibility. Fortunately, DeSmuME allows you to convert your saved games to a format that works with No$GBA

  • Double click the DeSmuME executable file to start the program. The latest version is available from the official website (see link in Resources)

  • Click "File" and then "Open ROM" before selecting the game.

  • Click "File" and then "Load State" if you have saved the game previously using the emulator; otherwise, load your saved game from the main menu of the game.

  • Click "File" and "Export Backup Memory" once you reach a point in the game that you want to save and convert to the other emulator.

  • Click the drop-down menu next to "Save As Type" and select "No$GBA Save Format" from the list.

  • Type the name of the game in the input box next to "File Name" before clicking "Save." DeSmuME will automatically convert the saved game to a format that is compatible with No$GBA so you can continue with the game using that emulator.
