Hello dear modders,
In this tuto, I am going to show you an other emulator, better, faster, stronger, with no ram limitations, nor Graphic limitations! And no need to root (Yes you're not dreaming)! Its name: windroye ! Works for windows 7, i don't know if it does for macs.
First you have to enable "virtualization" in your BIOS menu (It is not enable by default, you must do it or it won't work) :
-Restart your computer
-When your windows screen appear, clic on a function key (it might be f1 or f2 or f3 or esc or delete key). If nothing unusual appears, if you don't get to the bios screen, just restart your computer and try again (you probably have to clic faster on the key, it works even if your screen is black)
-Enter on BIOS setting (it might be called Bios setup, Bios something), Use the arrows to travel around the menu.
-When you have enabled it, clic on the saving key (Probably f10)
-Your computer should restart by himself, lets go to the Downloading part.
-Clic on this link http://www.windroye.com/product/windroye.php (no survey or craps), clic on windroyesetup.exe, then clic on the white buttons like on my pictures. Wait for the download to start. If you get an error message, refresh/reload the page.
When the download is done (262.4Mo), execute the file.
When windroye is installed, it will be probably in chinese.
Here is how to change the language, check the pictures:
Picture 1: easy
Picture 2: scroll down to find this icon
Picture 3: don't scroll, clic like it is show, then find the language you want
Directorys: To access your virtual android's files: your local disk (me it's C:\) C:\Windroy\windroy_root
To access to your app data from your computer : C:\Windroy\windroy_root\data\data
I didnt succesfully acceded to the sdcard from my computer, but you can from the application on the next picture
Few things you have to know: There is still a problem of compatibility between google services and windroye: google services can not be installed -> you must download the apk from somewhere else than google play (Examples: clean apkApk4fun Modded apk: Element Evil, Lopo website Ourmods or Sinfuliphone)
Edit: You might encouter an internet problem (slow loading page), Follow like on this picture, step 7 you have to desactivate/unstick the option allowing the computer to turn of your internet card.
Few applications might not work because they need google services.
