    Anyone who plays Brave Frontier knows the drain it can be on some phones/tablets. I just wanted to point out that there is an open source emulator for the PC that is better than bluestacks with no ads or anything called Andy. Just a heads up too, I'm not tech support on it, but some computers may slow down on it or not be able to connect correctly.

    Being better than bluestacks isn't exactly a good measuring stick.

    I downloaded this a week ago and forgot I had it after the "restart to complete installation" thing...

    Guess I'll try it for the first time now LOL...

    How is it? If it doesn't lag as much as Genymotion during BB I might use it too.

    Edit, nevermind. Alpha testing is closed for OSX.

    You can customize the amount of RAM or GPU it takes as well. So it's pretty customisable.

    29 FPS during BB spam with Geny
    11 FPS idling at a conversation with Andy

    Both have the same resources

    Given teh same stats I feel like it's roughly the same as genymotion.
    running fraps Geny seemed to run as low as 5 fps during attacks with battle effects etc.
    Andy seemed to be slightly better dipping as low as 5 but hovering between 10-15 usually.
    Both sitting idle at 60.
    I did notice turning on background is a crazy drop in fps from 60 to 15 ._.

    Genymotion works worse for me then Andy did. I just don't hear people talking about Andy a lot. I run without background and without a large BC amount shown. I just hope it helps people which choices :)

    Hi thanks TS, I'll give Andy a try. Anyway guys, may I ask something on Genymotion? It was working perfectly till I decided to update the version -.- Now currently on version 2.30 and I'm facing 2 issues:

    1) I can't flash gapps onto it, it says flashing failed.
    2) When I installed Amazon BF, I tried to start it but it either shows a black screen and hangs, or sometimes it would says unfortunately brave frontier has closed.


    Anyone encountered these before? How do I get Genymotion to work again? Really need help. Thanks so much in advance!!

    seem to be quite smooth for me,
    both on genymotion and andy.
    both only lags during massive bb spam/spark.

    as usual both on lowest ingame settings.

    im preferring andy because its really easy to setup.

    That's one of the biggest things going for andy. The set up is really easy.

    Would it be possible to remove spark/crit lag if you replaced the spark/crit images with a 0 kb file(possibly with filler), or otherwise deleted them?
