I know that many of you want to play Gangstar Vegas on your PC or Mac, for many reasons. Now the issue is, many do it the wrong way and use the wrong tools to do it so the outcome is not a very enjoyable gaming experience – that’s the reason why I decided to write this tutorial. I will show you how you should download Gangstar Vegas on your PC (and Mac), which tool works best (it’s NOT Bluestacks!) plus how you can set it up to play it very effectively.
If you already playing it on PC, make sure to check out the second chapter of this guide to see how to play it more powerful! If you use Bluestacks, don’t use it again and see the section where I teach you why.
How To Download Gangstar Vegas For Windows PC & Mac
It’s a fact, Gangstar Vegas is a game for mobile devices, so why would you even try to install it on a Windows PC or Mac? Well, there are many reasons why to do it:
- many do not own powerful smartphones with large screens or own a tablet – Gangstar Vegas sucks on small screens!
- You do not have an Android or iOS smartphone, like Windows Phone, Blackberry…
- Manage more than 1 accounts without problems
- Some use it at work in 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 percentage play Gangstar Vegas only on a PC! Well, most suffer the same problems:
- lagging gameplay & high performance needed
- difficult setup
These are things of the past – I will guide you how to do it the right way in this guide here.
Getting Banned For Playing Gangstar Vegas on PC/Mac?
A very important question first, the reason why so many don’t try it – are you getting banned for playing Gangstar Vegas on a PC or Mac?
The answer is NO!
I know there are several persons out there talking about that playing Gangstar Vegas on PC can get you banned, but that’s not true. Gangstar Vegas is just not supported when any technical problems happens, in case you don’t play on iOS or Android.
The deal is, if you do it properly (like shown below 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 Vegas on PC & Mac
The tutorial to do it is not that difficult – you download an emulator on your Windows PC (or Mac) which will simulate an Android device. No fear of getting banned and full game support.
Before we start, I’d like to give you some insights 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 background, Bluestacks was initially developed 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 had 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 make an emulator which 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 (for real!)
- 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 set you up with Gangstar Vegas 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.
Please wait until the installer finished successfully.
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 Vegas Account, you will need to log in with your existing Google Play Account
- If you want to start a new Gangstar Vegas Account (or secondary account), you will need to create a new one
Now you’re set up and ready to install Gangstar Vegas.
Step 3: Get Gangstar Vegas Installed
Now open up the Google Play Store.
Sometimes, you’ll see Gangstar Vegas right at the start – if not, simply search for “Gangstar Vegas” at the top.
Choose “install” and wait until Andyroid has been installing Gangstar Vegas.
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 Vegas in Andyroid.
You’re now set to play the game, so have fun 🙂
