Android Emulation

Recommended Posts

So, I am interested in making an Android section, so I ask, any one already messing around with Android emulators and recommend a great one? Thus far I have found these few but haven't played with any:

ANDY

Droid4X

NOX

I should have mentioned, I need one that is portable. I know alot of times you can install it on your C:, then move it to your portable drive. Uninstall the original and it works fine from new drive.
But preferably one that just folder drop and it run portable.

When I was into it (probably about a year ago) I was using koplayer with no complaints. I don't know how portable it is though. I just know it seemed a lot less invasive than Andy or Bluestacks. (layman opinion, bluestacks in particular had processes running at all times).

Cool didn't even notice this one. I am going to try this one then!. Does it run well through Launchbox straight to a game?

Honestly, I have no idea. I don't know that any run through launchbox. I'm sure it's possible, but it probably requires some command line or AHK. Sounds like a fun thing to figure out though.

Sorry... I had no issues. Worked the same for me as my last version.

Using xbox one controller.

One thing to try is completely delete any older demul folder you may have from your user files. Then just run the latest version and let it write brand new settings files.

IT seems like the new version of bluestacks doesn't make .lnk shortcuts to the individual games anymore, so I couldn't launch individually through launchbox.  Maybe I just couldn't find them because they buried them somewhere, but i looked a lot of places and never found them. 

EDIT:  nevermind, went back and downloaded the newest one today and it pops a shortcut on your desktop when you install an app!
