What works

Everything 2D and simple 3D related. Some of the newer games with extream GBA 3D graphics will crash. I tested Golden Sun, Zelda - a link to the past, Pokemon Sapphire, and Megaman battle network 3. Every once in a while It will lock up and you have to press any button on the menu to unfreeze it. I just press the "Save Options" button when this happens and the problem is solved. All of the menu settings and cheat codes work.

What does not

I also tested Super Mario Brothers 3 on it but I couldn't even get passed the title screen before it crashed.


What was not tested

A lot of other games.

Additional Comments

I imagine that with the current wine it would run without any problems at all.

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.
