Here is a simple tip or you can say tutorial to make you PUBG Mobile lag fix in Tencent Gaming Buddy.
Though there are many emulators which you can use to play PUBG Mobile on your PC, and many times I have boasted about those Emulators in some of my other blogs, but the fact is Tencent Gaming Buddy or now known as GameLoop is the best Emulator to Play PUBG Mobile on your PC, as it is the official Emulator from GameLoop. At the beginning when the Tencent Gaming Buddy was designed, it was designed to play the PUBG Mobile on PC mainly, later on with the success of the emulator, many other games have been featured with Tencent Gaming Buddy. So, for the best performance on PUBG Mobile on the PC platform, you should depend on the Tencent Gaming Buddy or the GameLoop only. Also, if you want to ensure a good quality FPS, then you must choose Tencent Gaming Buddy over other emulators for playing PUBG Mobile and Call of Duty Mobile as well.
Why stay with the Tencent Gaming Buddy / GameLoop?
As according to my experience only Tencent Gaming Buddy (GameLoop) can provide you with a 55-60 FPS gameplay on Emulator platform, while the others like BlueStacks, Nox Player, MEmu Player, LD Player can provide you up to 30-40 FPS at max. Even after the latest news from PUBG corporation, that PUBG Mobile is going to feature 90FPS gameplay, the only emulator would be able to replicate that performance is the GameLoop (Tencent Gaming Buddy). So, if you are having issues with the performance on Tencent Gaming buddy (GameLoop) then it is best for you to resolve that problem, and stay with the GameLoop instead of switching to any third-party Emulator.
Why there are lags in Tencent Gaming Buddy?
- Though Tencent Gaming Buddy / GameLoop is the official PUBG Mobile emulator, after two years of launch the application is still in beta version, so it contains many bugs and unfixed errors within the kernel code. Hence the users are ought to face lags with the application.
- After a few matches, you can see the game started to freeze, this problem is occurred due to the huge paging file size created by the PUBG Mobile on your PC.
- The huge fluctuation of FPS where you can see the game on 50 FPS now and on the next moment it is on 10 FPS, occurred due to Paging File size, low virtual RAM size and low amount of dedicated Video RAM (GPU memory).
Before solving the problems related with PUBG Mobile itself, you have to tweak the Tencent Gaming Buddy, to work at its best to get the best out of your emulator.
Optimizing GameLoop / Tencent Gaming Buddy
Follow the steps accordingly, to fix the also and performance issues due to your Tencent Gaming Buddy Emulator and get the best out of the application
- First Launch the GameLoop / Tencent Gaming Buddy, go to the Settings by clicking on the burger icon and select the Settings.
- Now go to the Engine Tab.
- Now select the DirectX+ option if you have 2GB GPU memory or more, else select the OpenGL+ option if you have 1Gb or less GPU memory (in case of 1GB GPU, the performance will not reach 60 FPS no matter what you do)
- Now make sure the Render cache, Enforce Global Render Cache & Rendering Optimization are checked and make the Prioritize Dedicated GPU unchecked.
- Set the Anti-aliasing to Close.
- Set the memory to the maximum size available (typically it is 4096MB)
- Now select 2 Cores, if you have a 4 Core processor or Select 4 Cores if you have 8 Core processors.
- Set the resolution at 1280×720 (if you are using a GPU with 2GB or less memory), for very low-end PC you can try the lowest resolution available a well, but that will make the graphics look so terrible that you may not be able to enjoy the game.
- Set the DPI to 240 instead of 160 else the clarity of the graphics will be very bad, due to low resolution.

Delete “temp” files from the PC

Increase Virtual Memory Size
