Review WinDS Pro
To think of Nintendo is to think of one of the main companies in the history of video games, and it is to the Japanese firm that we owe some of the consoles that have marked our childhood and youth, such as the Game Boy or the Nintendo DS itself. On the other hand, certain franchises of titles such as Mario Bros. or Pokémon are also part of their world, and surely many users will want to enjoy these games on their computers today.
Of course, as we know, to run these old console games on our PC, we will need an emulator, and although many good ones can be recommended in these cases, WinDS Pro is one of our favorites. About this platform, we have to say that it has been specially designed to allow us to emulate especially Nintendo DS and Game Boy games that we have not yet been able to forget.
Unlike what happens with other famous emulators, WinDS Pro does not have integrated game ROMs. Still, you will have to download them to your computer to access them and enjoy your favorite titles with a specific program for them. But if that is one of its weak points, on the other hand, we must say that it allows us to emulate games from several consoles instead of just one, an advantage over the competition.
Within the WinDS Pro proposal, we can find a service that brings together some of the most critical emulators we know of consoles, such as Nintendo DS and GameBoy Advance. We can mention, and you'll see them for yourself in the screenshots accompanying this review, some like no$GBA, DeSmuMe, iDeaS, VisualBoyAdvance, and VBALink, so you have several options to select from.
This offering several emulators is important, especially considering that some games may run better on one than another. If you want a positive experience, you should look for the one that runs best for that particular game. Before starting the games, we recommend you test the different emulators to see which one performs better on your PC.
Now that we have mentioned the main features of WinDS Pro, you have to take into account some requirements to use the application on your computer, such as that we will have to have previously installed DirectX to use it, besides it will be important to have a compressor compatible with ZIP to be able to decompress certain files that come like this to occupy less space.
And at the same time, unfortunately, we found a common error in some emulators. Although WinDS Pro is translated into Spanish, it is sometimes so inaccurate that we prefer to use it in English. This happens because the translation is done by users and not by the program developers themselves, so here is our advice: use the application in English.
Finally, in this kind of section of the negative points that WinDS Pro has, you should know that it takes several minutes to install on any computer due to the number of internal emulators this platform has. Of course, this is not a serious problem since it is a one-time procedure, but you have to consider it, especially if you are anxious to enjoy your favorite games.
As is commonly the case with emulators, this review is marked by the fact that its operation almost always keeps them in the background by giving priority on the screen to the games. Until we play the title in question, we find an aesthetic that complies without problems, both aesthetically and functionally.
What is the best thing about WinDS Pro, then? Above all, it integrates several different emulators for many of your favorite Nintendo games, keeping in mind that this will prevent you from downloading another emulator if one doesn't work.
On the negative side of this application, we can then point out issues such as resource consumption higher than other emulators by its characteristics of integrating several. At the same time, as we said before, this service does not integrate ROMs of games, but we will have to download them one by one when we want to play them.
In summary, we can conclude that WinDS Pro is one of the best applications as emulators available now if we intend to enjoy many of the historic Nintendo games. Suppose you are one of those users tired of downloading several emulators to enjoy the ROM of a particular title. In that case, this application will settle that account quickly, easily, and for free.
