Here is a full overview of SmartGaGa Settings >>

Shake the device

Sometimes we need to shake our mobile device for performing some activity or action. You may have experienced some apps or games which need your device to shake.

Whatever the reason may be, this emulator also has a button which shakes the device.

GPS Settings

Search and set any location worldwide by using the GPS features. You can set any location using the location name as well as longitude (lng) and latitude (lat). These features allow you to precisely search and set your desired location or country/city virtually.

GPS Position settings


Another useful feature of this emulator is multi instances. Take advantage of computer/PC big screen which allows you to open multiple instances of games/apps in multiple windows, simultaneously.

SmartGaGa multi instance feature

It means you can play more than one instance of the same or different games at the same time. Saying it better, an experience like you have many Android devices in front of you for playing your favorite games and gain “unfair advantage” of Android PC emulator.

Screen Capture

Capture the screenshot of the device screen using the Screen capture button. Taking screenshots is not a big deal on mobile phones and tablets. The benefits of screenshot double up in games.

Take a screenshot of games in Android emulator

Therefore, including a screen capture feature helps you take screenshots and share on social media like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, etc.

Increase/Decrease Volume

Adjust the master volume to your choice. There are two separate buttons for increasing and decreasing the volume of Android players.

increase decrease volume

Install External APK

Google Play Store is the largest and most secure Android apps and games market, but this is not the end of the world. There are many Android markets that are alternative to Google Play Store (like APK Pure, APK Mirror, etc).

install external APK app or game in Smart GaGa player

The drawback of Google Play is that you have to download and install apps and games online each time you try to install. It consumes internet bandwidth and a lot of valuable time (which could be invested in playing games; LOL).

To avoid this repetitive installation, you need to download the APK file of that specific game/app. Alternatively, you can collect all your favorite games/apps APK files and install them without downloading each time.

start install external APK by drag and drop

In SmartGaGa emulator, just press the Install External APK button and load your desired APK. The installer will start and you can install a game/app just like your smartphone/tablet.

Keyboard Settings

Gamepad Mapping
You can enable or disable gamepad mapping using the toggle box.

Click to Create

This section covers some options including simple key, WASD, shoot view and shoot trigger. All these controls are movable over the game screen after you select them. This section has the following four options:

Simple key

Define any key on the keymap from the keyboard. Just click/tap the simple key button and you will see a blank control appears on the display screen. This blank key will prompt you to press any key from your keyboard.

By pressing the key you actually define/dedicate that key. It means that you will not be able to assign that specific key again, that’s simple.

key defined on keymap

You can move (drag and drop) the key control anywhere over the emulator display area. A tiny x button lets you delete the defined key. If you wish, you may overlap keys too.

You should avoid using W, A, S and D keys as a simple key because these keys are mostly used as direction arrow keys.

In case you assign any key from the W, A, S or D; you will see the following error when you click WASD control (see below the line for details about WASD control):

Error: key WASD has been used!

key map error WASD has been used

So we recommend you avoid these four keys and use other keys from the keyboard.

Do not use WASD keys as simple key
How to manage simple key controls?

Here are some useful tips that can help you fine-tune the simple keys:

How to add a new simple key?
Once a key has defined, you can add more key controls either by clicking a simple key button from the game controls panel or click anywhere on the screen.

How to edit a defined simple key?
Double click on the defined key and it will turn into a blank key. Now press your desired key from the keyboard. That’s it.

How to delete a simple key?
The simple key has a small x button on the top right. Click it once to delete the key.

SmartGaGa Troubleshooting

We found some bugs and issues during emulator testing.

  • Bug: Resize the Emulator window does not work

There is a bug that does not allow you to resize the program window. During the test, we found that once you reduce the emulator window size, you cannot resize it back to a large size or original size.

Solution: There is a sort of trick to fix SmartGaGa screen size bug. Whenever you find yourself trapped in the screen restore problem, simply click/tap on the program menu (on the top right of emulator window) and select the Rotate screen option. It is a toggle option that will turntable to mobile and vice versa. Once you get the view changed, again, go to the menu and select the rotate screen option. You will get the default resolution.

  • Bug: APK file does not show in SmartGaGa install external APK browse dialog box

You may experience the issue when you save an APK in some folder and then use install external APK option in the SmartGaGa toolbox, but no APK file shows in the open dialog box. Meanwhile, you know and see the file exists when you browse Windows File Explorer. The emulator browse box is the only place where you cannot see the installation file.

Solution: There are two possible solutions to fix APK disappear problem:

  1. Copy the APK file path and paste in the file name field of the emulator’s open dialog box. Copying the file may also work instead of copying the file path.
  2. Drag and drop app/game APK file to the emulator. The installation will start in a few moments.

There might be more problems but this is a part of development. None of the Android emulator or any software is 100% perfect and accurate for every device. So, don’t worry and focus on fixing them on your own or contact us.

  • How to FIx SmartGaGa Blue screen problem?

There may be several reasons for blue screen or black screen issue. Therefore we have listed all possible solutions for you. Try them one by one.

Solution 1: First, make sure you are using SmartGaGa with the 7.1.2 Nougat version (download link on top of the page). SmartGaGa with 4.4.2 KitKat version often shows blue screen error.

Solution 2: Incompatibility of Play Store and Play Services versions is one of the major reasons of blue screen issue. As SmartGaGa development has stopped, there are no official updates released for a long time. The emulator must have an appropriate version of Google Play Store in order to work with Android Nougat as well as latest apps and games such as PUBG, FreeFire, etc. You can try following methods to fix Play Store issue in SmartGaGa emulator:

(A) Stop Google Play auto update. To disable auto updates, first open Play Store, then open its settings and select Do not auto-update apps.

(B) Stop Google Play Services app every time you open SmartGaGa. Just go to Settings > Apps > Play Services and stop or force stop it.

Solution 3: In Widows 10, go to settings > Time & Language and do the following settings in the right panel:

(A) Set time automatically [ON]

(B) Set time zone automatically [OFF]

For Windows 7, search for Date and Time in start menu and apply the above settings.

Solution 4: Stop/disable Windows Antivirus (Windows Defender). In the case of third-party security solutions such as Avast, BitDefender, AVG, Segurazo, etc. you may pause or completely uninstall the antivirus software. Especially Segurazo (you may need this guide) comes as bloatware when you download SmartGaGa from some bloatware-supported websites.

Solution 5: Download and update Visual C++ distributable libraries (vcredist) and .NET Framework.

  • Fix: SmartGaGa stops at 98%

Try these solutions:

  • Update Windows
  • Update Visual C++ Runtime libraries
  • Update .NET Framework runtimes
  • Set rendering to OpenGL in emulator settings
  • Clean up free space on the computer
  • Uninstall and reinstall SmartGaGa in a different folder
  • Fix: Connection failed, Error 42

Try these solutions:

  • Check you internet connection
  • Disable Windows Firewall and antivirus
  • Run SmartGaGa emulator as an Administrator

Fix: Black screen on startup or during gameplay

  • Set rendering to OpenGL in emulator settings
  • Update graphics driver
  • Increase emulator memory RAM in settings

Fix: Garena Free Fire does not start / run

  • Set rendering mode to OpenGL
  • When the Free Fire game starts, check the box “Do not show this dialog again
  • When you close the game, make sure it is properly closed, not just minimized.

Best Alternatives to SmartGaGa

SmartGaGa is not the only lightweight emulator for PC, obviously. There are a few Android emulators for low-end PC and laptops.

Honestly, not all of these players would work best for you. In our testing, MuMu Player is the best alternative to SmartGaGa. Both of them look similar in many aspects, like design, controls, etc.

Download SmartGaGa

The installer setup of SmartGaGa is available in two Android versions:

  1. SmartGaGa with Android 4.4.2 (KitKat)
  2. SmartGaGa with Android 7.1.2 (Nougat)

Both setup files have the latest version of the SmartGaGa emulator. The only difference is the Android version. Moreover, these are the offline installers for the SmartGaGa emulator.

Which version should I choose? Nougat or KitKat

We recommend choosing your desired setup to download the emulator. Most people prefer Android 7.1.2 (Nougat) which supports more games and apps. However, if Nougat does not work on your machine or you experience lags or slow performance, then try the KitKat version. It is lighter and runs faster.

Here are SmartGaGa direct download links (offline installer setup). You just need to select your favorite version and download will start instantly.

  1. good emulator and the requirments also good so if you take my opinion the will be the best emulator for you all player and enjoy

    1. Restart and try again. Also check your Internet connection.
      If nothing works, then you may open the web browser app and download APKPure app as an alternative to Play Store.

  2. Bhai Mera free fire ya koi bhi game play store se dowload nahi ho raha please help please please please help help

  4. sir
    when i try to install in my win10 home pc after 60-70% suddenly my pc restart with error blue screen.. its repeat when i try to re install .exe… what to do..?

    1. There could be hard disc bad sector or ISO file corruption. Fortunately both issues can be fixed. First, try to extract the ISO files again, or download a fresh ISO file. Second, if ISO file is perfect, then search for disc bad sector scanner and removal software.

    2. Try to stop all other software and even antivirus in order to get maximum RAM memory. And also check if hard disk has sufficient free space available. If no solution works at all, re-install fresh Windows.

  5. I have 4 gm ram in my pc will this emulator help me to play Garena Freefire without lag. If it work then i will give 5 star.

  6. One main problem i found in this emulator that play store is telling No internet connection but other apps like browser is working and my internet connection is very good and i cant download any games like Garena Freefire What should i do???????

    1. One more thing When i am starting the emulator it is showing unfortunately Launcher three has stopped. Is there any problem in it????? What should i do????

      1. Search YouTube for this issue. There are plenty of solutions, try them. And thank you for feedback, we shall address it too.

    1. Download time depends on server speed as well as consumer’s internet speed. While installation of SmartGaGa usually takes 6-10 minutes on i3 cpu.

  7. Hi .. I have a problem in Clash of Clans. I can’t connect to the supercell ID because it gets stuck ! Can you help?

    1. Update Windows, update drivers (especially graphics card driver), update Visual C++ Runtime Libraries, update .NET Framework, free up disk space and if nothing else works then try installing SmartGaGa on a different folder location.

  8. Why Games like Garena Freefire is showing black screen for 10 minutes and then start .. Please Help me!!!

  9. Is it work for Free Fire ob28 updated version? But some other SmartGaGa Android 4.4/7.1.2 version is continuously stuck and BLACK SCREEN problems.

  10. Isaac Adebowale

    It does not detect external storage, how can one have access to flash drive and or other partitions on the system?

    1. It usually does not behave like this. A quick solution to this issue may be copying APK or media files temporarily to the working partition, install it and then delete them after you get the work done.
