  • mitzi

    i run a computer shop and has installed bluestacks in every pc as per customer requests. last night a customer created his village for the first time in one of my units and everything went fine. he connected his village to his google play account. he was able to play coc without any problems. he exited when his time was over. he went home and tried to load his new village in his laptop at home. he couldnt load it. he came back here at my shop this afternoon and sat at the same unit as last night and opened bluestacks to play coc. he couldnt load his village. and other villages that are synced to the same bluestacks couldnt load anymore as well. when his account is chosen, the welcome message with his google play account is displayed but the pop up box asking for confirmation does not appear. what could be the problem and how could this be resolved.

    • Will Potter

      I mitzi,
      I think you should try to remove Bluestacks fully and try to reinstall it, This usually can solve that problem.

Just the page is unresponsive and it still shows the install button and everything. I also tried the apk. file alternative it worked until it told me to update. Which I tried to but got the same problem when I tried to install the game without the apk. Any solutions?

  • michael

    Hello i was wondering if you could help me. I was playing with bluestacks and my computer crashed. When i turned it back on coc was deleted from bluestacks and i didnt back it up with my google play account. So right now im in the process of getting my village back and have been in contact with supercell. They are asking questions to cross reference the answers with their database to verify that the villiage is mine. They are asking what device i was playing on, is there any answer i can give them so i can get my account back or am i screwed? Because i know they dont support emultators so i cant tell them i was playing on my laptop.

    • Will Potter

      Hi Michael,
      try to give them a name of a cheap Chinese device. They don’t have any Chinese cheap devices in their database.

      • michael

        I got my account back! Thank you for your help Will!

      Hi Ni8mate,
      Are you using Bluestacks v2.0?

      Hi Jepbar,
      Can you try to change your connection?

      • Jepbar Shamyradow

        Hi Potter, other games in bluestacks works well, also google play works well.. downloaded from market, browsers are also working.. do you think it’s really connection problem? By the way, i have wifi connected pc.. maybe settings?

        • Will Potter

          Yes, I think you should try to change the connection. Otherwise you can use a free VPN.
          No, I think that PC is not the problem mate!

    hey Will, plz help me i used ur black building trick coz it was black before and set it to 500.but still its not become playable .btw my pc do not have graphic card although graphic drivers are updated (which are of Intel) i am having 3 GB ram and also candy crush worked fine (just slow)……Can u tell me what should i do ?

    • Will Potter

      Hello mate!
      I think you should give MEmu a try! It’s a new Android Emulator. Works much better than Bluestacks!

      • Gamer Jee Han

        Really ? BTW what about Andy emulator ? i came across it yesterday i am confused which to use now Andy vs MEmu ? i wanna play COC badly ๐Ÿ™‚

        • Will Potter

          MEmu is much better at this time xD.

          • Gamer Jee Han

            it didn’t worked it was stuck at 59% and when i googled it ,i came to the conclusion that it was because of having low OpenGL or graphic card….i guess COC can’t be played without graphic card

          • Will Potter

            I strongly believe there is something wrong for sure. You can run it smoothly without any additional graphic card!

          • Gamer Jee Han

            well it gave straight error for updating my graphic card….guess i ll try it some other time again ,,

  • If Bluestacks isn’t working out, it might be worthwhile to check out the LeapDroid emulator. I’ve never had any trouble with it, and Clash Royale and Boom Beach both work flawlessly on this emulator.
