Boots all DS games that it should.
What does not
There are several graphical glitches such as 3D models not showing up.
3D also slows things down.
What was not tested
It runs well, aside from missing models (these show up in Windows) and slowing down due to the compat layer. 2D games run great.

For those guys reporting problems with NDS 3D graphics on NO$GBA, remember that the support is pretty "crude" (as of 2.4b), so it may not be Wine fault. Quoting from the NO$GBA history:
- 3d: loads Opengl32.dll (killer-slow) (but, only if needed, not for 2D games)
That explains the performance hit. Remember, NO$GBA is quite CPU-hungry, so a fast processor will help, and since it uses OpenGL (nice! it should be flawless), make sure to have your drivers updated! (this goes DOUBLE for propietary drivers users)
If you want to report bugs with this feature, first update your drivers (on both Windows and Linux) AND the emulator, test in BOTH OS's, and then, if you find something unusual between OS's, google first for any known, issue on your OpenGL driver, and ONLY if you find nothing, then file the bug.
