Click to expand... Click to shrink... Drastic. Which isn't through Retroarch, it's standalone. Drastic's good enough that there's people who'll run an Android emulator on their desktop just to use Drastic to emulate their DS collection. On my PC, I use all of the DS cores available depending on the game; I'd assume that depending on the game, you're not going to want to stick to just one core over the other.
