How To Download Gangstar New Orleans For Windows PC & Mac
First of all, Gangstar New Orleans is a mobile game, so why would you even try to install it on a Windows PC or Mac? Well, there are many reasons why to do it:
- a lot out there do not have access to powerful smartphones with high-resolution screens or a tablet – Gangstar New Orleans is not good on small screens!
- You do not have an Android or iOS smartphone, like Windows Phone, Blackberry…
- Manage more than one accounts without problems
- Some want to use it at work at the office, where they don’t have WiFi/Internet connection on their mobile devices or not allowed to use their mobile devices during working hours
- Use it without getting interrupted by messages & phone calls
- Stable recording (Youtubers)
As you can see, there are different reasons and in fact, a big number play Gangstar New Orleans primarily on a PC! Well, most have the same problems:
- agging gameplay & high performance needed
- difficult setup
Those are problems of the past – I will guide you how to do it right in this guide here.
Getting Banned For Playing Gangstar New Orleans on PC/Mac?
The most important question first, the reason why so many don’t try it – are you risking a ban for using Gangstar New Orleans on a PC or Mac?
The answer is NO!
I know there are several people out there telling that playing Gangstar New Orleans on PC will get you banned, but that’s not true. Gangstar New Orleans is just not supported in case of any technical problems happens, if you don’t play on iOS or Android.
The deal is, if you do it right (like shown here in this guide), you will not have any problems.
Attention! Do NOT intall any hacks/mods, this will get you banned! But that will also get you banned when playing on Android or iOS devices
Step By Step Guide To Play Gangstar New Orleans on PC & Mac
The guide to do it is not that difficult – you will get an emulator on your Windows PC (or Mac) that will simulate an Android device. No danger of getting banned and full game support.
Before we start, I’d like to give you some details to the emulator tools, because I think it’s important for you to know that.
Why Not Bluestacks? Andyroid Is Much Better!
To give you the full story, Bluestacks was initially created to be a tool for app developers to test out their apps without loading it to their mobile devices – that was back in the 2010ish years.
In the beginning of mobile games, many didn’t owned a smartphone to play with, so they simply started using Bluestacks (even if Bluestacks was not intended to be a gaming simulator) simply because it was the only thing that worked.
Today, Andyroid did create an emulator that is designed from the scratch for people who want to play mobile games on their PC & Mac.
The advantages from Andyroid over Bluestacks:
- More simple setup (promised!)
- Much smoother (Bluestacks crashes often, Andyroid did not one time for me so far)
- Lower hardware requirements! Bluestacks is really turning my PC hot as it uses full hardware sources – Andyroid can’t get limited to only use what it needs (I’ll show you later)
If you played Clash Royale with Bluestacks so far, I really recommend trying out Andyroid Tweet This
So, now enough of all the background and talking, let’s get you started with Gangstar New Orleans on your PC or Mac!
Step 1: Get Andyroid on your PC/Mac
Ok first of all, you will need to download Andyroid and install it.
Then start Andyroid from your PC or Mac.
Step 2: Login Your Account (or start a new one)
First of all, you will set your language settings and then it will ask you if you want to use your Google Play Account or create a new one:
- If you want to use your exciting Gangstar New Orleans Account, you will need to log in with your existing Google Play Account
- If you want to start a new Gangstar New Orleans Account (or secondary account), you will need to create a new one
Now you’re set up and ready to install Gangstar New Orleans .
Step 3: Get Gangstar New Orleans Installed
Now open up the Google Play Store.
Sometimes, you’ll see Gangstar New Orleans right at the start – if not, simply search for “Gangstar New Orleans ” at the top.
Choose “install” and wait until Andyroid has been installing Gangstar New Orleans .
You can now play, but I recommend you to also check the settings from step 4.
Step 4: Configuration
Actually, you would be able to play now, but here’s how I recommend you to set up your Andyroid install to get the best experience – I highly recommend you to do this!
Adapt Hardware Resources
Andyroid will not need more than 1024 MB of memory and 2 CPUs (if you’re using a desktop PC, you can also choose 1 CPU as they are stronger than notebook CPUs). You can set it up in the “Virtual Box” settings – Andyroid will set this at the start automatically, but it doesn’t hurt to double check it.
Setup Keyboard Support
Playing with keyboard hotkeys will make your life a lot easier because it will allow you to do things without clicking around all the time.
This should also be set and you can see it when you start Gangstar New Orleans in Andyroid.
You’re now set to play the game, so have fun 🙂
