- Run the application
- Load the .nds file you'd like to play using the File menu
NO$GBA will create folders and files when you first open it, which are used to save your games and remember your personal settings.
You can change these settings using the menu when you are running the application (e.g. change which keys map to which buttons on the console, and which cheats are activated).
Generally, it's a way to play your games when your Nintendo DS isn't available or has been sent in for repairs. You can take your game dumps straight off the microSD card that you usually use with your CycloDS, and NO$GBA will play them.
Note that compatibility isn't 99.9% like it is with the CycloDS Evolution. You can try using app:no-zoomer if you have any problems.
