I don't have an R4 card or anything (yet), so I was wondering, which emulator works the best?

I just want one that works with ds roms and can use one of those usb xbox 360 controllers to play the game. I also don't want any that also come with computer viruses. What do you reccomend?

NO$GBA is a fast and lightweight emulator that supports many controllers, but it has a problem in its sound emulation. I'm not sure if DeSmuME supports Xbox 360 controllers, but you can give one of those a try. DeSmuME and NO$GBA are the best leading DS emulators so far, and they're virus-free.

Usually, working emulators don't come with viruses, if you ever get a virus while trying to download a popular emulator, then it would probably be because you'd have downloaded it from a suspicious website

Anyway, DeSmuME is probably the most accurate DS emulator on the Internet, but you should use NO$GBA if you're looking for an emulator with more really advanced tools (but keep in mind that these tools aren't useful if you just want to play games normally)

Also, you might want to download MelonDS (which is currently developed by  StapleButter) when it'll be finished, but for now, I'd recommend DeSmuME

EDIT: ninj'd but whatever :/

Definitely DeSmume, but on some laptops it is horribly slow, so if you are using a laptop, change the settings JET. Also, if you want to put the hack on a portable Android device, try DraStic.

Nah, can't really blame laptops here, it's not just them.

Anyway, the one good use you can make of No$GBA is for quick testing. Both transparency effects and sound are pretty messed up, but one option in the emu partially fixes the sound.

I use DeSmuMe for recording. If you want to speed it up, lower the sound quality. The change is barely noticeable anyways.

As for actual playing, I use a R4. The cheats that come with it by default are cool too.

I actually wouldn't recommend an R4 card.
The real deal only works on a DS and DS Lite, while all the "DSi versions" are mere clones of other DSi-compatible flash cards.
Supercard DSTWO and AceKardi are the most solid cards.

I have an R4i3DS, works awesome on both my lite and my 3DS (though I needed hax to get it on my 3DS).

R4i3DS's latest kernel supports all the latest 3DS firmwares.

I ordered an R4i GOLD two months ago, and it has yet to come. I paid via PayPal, but the order status is stuck at something like "Awaiting payment".

I have a R4 gold clone, it works nicely on DSi, DS Lite or whatever.

I don't need an "official" version of it. as long as it works, I don't care.

actually, in latest versions of NO$GBA, the transparency effects are partly fixed. they're too dark but atleast it's not opaque.

Oh, well that's a definite improvement. with that out of the way, No$GBA's got no big flaw to speak of if you just want to try out hacks.

The recommended flashcart is actually the R4i Gold 3DS RTS, which has RTS and Wood R4 compatibility for only 15 bucks. It is also still supported. Acekards are cool but the team disappeared from the Internet, and the emulation features of the DSTWO+ are useless with a CFW'd 3DS. Plus, DSTWO is utterly crap because of the patches applied (cc Skawo)
