PUBG Mobile has been available for download on Android and iOS devices since March this year (2018) and is one of the most popular and refined mobile games available on portable devices. It runs exceptionally well on a range of different phones and tablets and the gameplay, controls, and graphics are amazing for a mobile game. It also has one of best development teams of any game, with devs constantly listening to and implementing community feedback.

Unfortunately the same can’t be said for the official PUBG Mobile PC emulator, which has been out for close to the same amount of time. Since its launch the Tencent Gaming Buddy (emulator) has been buggy, resource hungry, and quite temperamental, requiring very specific settings to work smoothly on a range of machines.

However, once you have established the settings that work best on your machine it works, reasonably well, though updates usually trigger a new onslaught of problems. One of the emulators most frustrating issues is the fact that it quite often ignores the installation language you have selected. For example, if you have the emulator installed in English, it will quite often download the game in Chinese.

In order for the change to take effect, you will need to close the entire emulator and launch it again. For some reason, if you try to change the language settings from the first (main emulator window) it doesn’t always adjust the language in game. Sadly after each and every update you may find yourself downloading and reinstalling the game so you may have to repeat these steps after each installation.
