    What you can try is enabling skipping frames, it makes emulation much faster.

    Or post the specs of the PC you're trying to run it on. Often the issue is with the PC hardware or operating system and nothing to do with the emulator.

    you could try using NO$SGBA this works fine for me and my computer is quite old too

    how much RAM and Ghz have you got if its too low it wont work

    you need at least 512 RAM and 1.7 Ghz for desmume to work well

    To make DeSmuMe faster:
    Config > 3D Settings > "SoftRasterizer", Check "...Edge Making", "...Fog" and uncheck "Unrealistically..." > Okay

    Config > Sound Settings > Synchronization Mode choose "Synchronous..." and choose "N" or "Z" or "P" > Interpolation "None" or "Linear"

    Config > Frame Skip > Uncheck ?Limit Framerate? > (For faster speed) > Auto Skip or Fixed Skip > Adjust to "1" to "3" or higher [Note: Lower is smooth and Higher is Choppy]
    This was for DeSmuMe 0.9.5, but the same settings might be in DeSmuMe 0.9.7. Most people don't change the settings and DeSmuMe's default 3D Renderer is OpenGL which is a High Quality settings compared to SoftRasterizer.

    Do you flash or EMULATE?
    I could help with DS, PS2, etc Emulators and a Link for updating Flashcards.
