Dec Update: Bluestacks versions below v3.0 have known compatibility issues with latest Windows 10 and Windows Server 2017 OS updates. 2017 Windows 10 OS "creators" update that is finally being rolled out to most PC worldwide. This update force enables HyperV emulation, and this is not compatible with Bluestacks v1 or v2. Compatibility information is available on Microsoft or Bluestacks support web sites. If you disable the new HyperV setting in control panel (and prevent latest virtual desktop features from working), BS v2.5 can be used on some Windows 10 PC. If you can not disable HyperV emulation, then you need to use BS v3+ on Windows 10 2017. It is possible to force BS versions prior to V2.5 to run with 2017 Windows 10 creators update, but it requires several permanent changes to system registry and other system setting changes (not recommended for typical PC user or PC being used for more than farming). Windows 7/8 users can continue to versions 0.10.7 unrooted, v2.2 and v2.5 described below. For all versions, SC game update sometimes require Google Play Store, Google Play Games, or Google Play Services updates to work properly.. Make sure you have latest versions in Play Store! Here are some notes on various Bluestacks versions for reference: -- BS v0.9.X - Not recommended Used by many community members. No reason to upgrade unless you have issues with Google Play Games and "Gamer ID". Has many reported problems with Google Play games and Google Play services auto app updates. These require you to remove/reinstall CoC app and Google Account with every major update. Since the October 2016 game update, this version now has issues randomly crashing game and returns to main BS home screen. -- BS v0.10.X - Recommended Windows 7/8 only >>> BS v0.10.7.5601 non-rooted Most older rooted BS versions crash since Oct 2016 update, but original version can be downloaded from FileHippo and is running fine for most community http://filehippo.com/download_bluestacks_app_player/64518/ Non-rooted version does require manual removal of free download games advertising. Just Disable 'App Sync' & 'My Bluestacks' Apps (Disable Option Is in AppInfo) To Remove Bluestacks Ads" or follow the instructions here > http://druss.co/2015/06/how-to-remove-bluestacks-ads-sponsored-apps-popup/ While BS is spamming older version BS users with messages to upgrade, and even forcing automatic updates to latest version; v0.10.7 is best emulator for running a single emulator on your PC. Fastest, lowest resources, and is heavily used by community with great success. Has had some minor issues with Google Play service updates not being applied properly and Google Play Games "Gamer ID" failing to operate. Unless you understand process for fixing app version compatibility issues, most problems with this version are solved with simple removal & installation, install latest Google Play Games, and the install latest CoC. 2019-Feb Update: Clash of Clans might not install or update from Play Store with error "CPU ABI incompatible" or so. In that case just install the latest arm-v7a version from apkmirror.com: https://www.apkmirror.com/wp-content/themes/APKMirror/download.php?id=599517 -- BS v2.0.X - Not recommended for new installations >>> BS v2.0.2 rooted ALL versions of BS prior to latest v2.2 are being spammed with upgrade notices. Most stable version found by MBR community is v2.0.2. The rooted version available in our forums was created by a Russian user and has some minor language/keyboard settings that are easily to change, and it works well. Most of Google Play games updates experienced with v0.1.X are gone with this version. Requires more system resources and users of old Core Duo CPU report minor lag issues. A portion of community have reported that this rooted version has same CoC app crash as all v0.XX versions. -- BS v2.1X - Not Recommended for new installations ALL versions of BS prior to latest v2.2 are being spammed with upgrade notices. Most stable version with spam free download found by MBR community is v2.1.7. Some Win 10 users report lag issues with all 2.0.X versions is lower using v.2.1.X. I recommend you download spam free native BS installer for v126.96.36.19958 linked from XDA site: http://forum.xda-developers.com/wiki/BlueStacks_App_Player Look in table of BS versions for v188.8.131.5258 and it has a download link. Then use the instructions in this thread using BS Easy to create your own de-bloated & rooted BS: https://mybot.run/forums/index.php?/topic/15318-tools-auto-root-any-bluestacks-remove-ads-08103096-to-2185663/ This process is not hard. But, There is no shame in admitting that creation of your own rooted version of BlueStacks is too complicated for you to accomplish. You can use any recommended version. Update: The newer v2.2+ versions of BS2 fix internal bugs with app compatibility, and bot has been taught how to better control them. -- BS v2.2.X+ - Most releases up through v2.5.XX have been tested to work better on Win7/8 systems - may not work for every hardware configuration. All version of BS after v2.1.8 included 2 different virtualization engines in program. They have legacy mode for older PC, and new virtualization engine that is using Oracle Virtual box technology used by some of newer emulators. New virtualization engine allows BS to have multiple apps open in separate tabs (in halt state when hidden - not useful for bot), and quickly switch between them. Development team has been in constant update mode trying to deal with v2.2+ BS and fact that is installs/behaves differently based on users hardware configuration. Many users of i3/i5 CPU prior to Gen 4 hardware are having issues with new virtualization support, and get errors such as BS is stuck trying to start up. One of our long time top contributors has posted rooted v184.108.40.20631 & rooted v220.127.116.1154 in this forum. So if your PC is less than 2-3 years old; one of these versions may work well for you. Note: It appears the newest versions of BS are now setting a default Android DPI of 240 in registry. The bot image detection is trained with standard DPI setting of 160 used on older versions. You need to check registry and edit/remove this new setting as discussed here. -- BS v2.5.X+ - Supported on Windows 7/8/10, Recommend v2.5.43 All recent versions of BS 2.5.x should work. A copy of BS v18.104.22.16801 rooted can be found here: https://mybot.run/forums/index.php?/topic/23339-rooted-bluestacks-25438001/ MBR v6 had some issues controlling latest BS2 versions. Since V7 release these have been resolved and BS2.5 works well with bot. The v2.5.43 has fixed most of the installation issues on older PC where wrong virtualization mode was selected, and run well on older or resource limited PC. All above BlueStacks Versions: Will need to apply registry fix to stop BS phoning home and forcing auto update without your approval. https://mybot.run/forums/index.php?/topic/19107-tool-remove-bluestacks-shared-folders-stop-spam-in-taskbar/ Just remember to run BS and add your Google ID after installation AND before applying the reg file to make sure BS initializes correctly first. If you modify the registry values before BS is fully installed, it will get stuck forever at blue loading screen and you must reinstall. -- BS v3.X+ - Supported (actually based on BS v2.10.X) BS v3.X version seems to be based on BS v2.10.X and does work. Though, DPI must be validated and manually set in Windows Registry to 160. See HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\BlueStacks\Guests\Android\BootParameters and find the DPI=xxx value and change xxx to 160. Full reboot with HD-Quit.exe required! Also, the Launcher is missing - so just install Nova Launcher using "ADB install" on the downloaded APK and all is good. Existing manual ads removal doesn't seem to work - for me this one did: 1. Launch adb shell using HD-Adb.exe or adb.exe 2. Within shell call /system/xbin/bstk/su 3. Then call pm block com.uncube.account -- BS v4.X+ - Supported BS v4.X version have now also the custom FPS setting like Nox or MEmu, but CPU consumption is even less... best I've seen so far when using 20 fps: https://support.bluestacks.com/hc/en-us/articles/360021616891-Introducing-custom-FPS-frames-per-second-feature-on-BlueStacks Having Problem choosing which version?
