Additional Comments

Bronze barely because a few games DO work. If you can get past the screens and get to the gameplay in a game you're fine and it will work perfectly and will run better than it would in Windows.

HowTo / Notes

Regarding Microphone emulation

Wine's support for No$gba's microphone emulation should be about perfect. This doesn't always mean that the microphone emulation will work perfectly.


If a game isn't running at full speed,  the sound will sound a bit stuttery. The same goes for the microphone, but in reverse. If the game isn't being emulated fast enough, the computer will hear you as a stuttery mess. This is why blowing works and why, at times, voice-recognition won't. The same principle applies to No$gba users on Windows.

NO$GBA Fullscreen

Someone knows how to put NO$GBA 2.6a in fullscreen mode? Is this possible?

I read that No$zommer can do that, but it doesn't run on my wine.

Any tip??

Best Regards

Yeah, I've also been wondering how to do that for a long time, so when I saw your comment I just felt like replaying to it xD

You can do that by enabling the Enhanced Zoom Desktop plugin on Compiz Fusion:

Just want to let you guys know that if you choose OSS instead of ALSA in winecfg no$gba framerate improves drastically.
