Learn how to install the latest updated PUBG Mobile version in Tencent Gaming Buddy and how to install other games(APK, XAPK, OBB Copy/Pasting)
As you know, Tencent Gaming Buddy comes with pre-installed PUBG Mobile and lets you enjoy the PUBG Mobile on your PC. But the emulator users get the latest patch after Android and iOS. For example; Recent Sanhok update arrived in Tencent Gaming Buddy arrived today(13th September) while mobile users got the update yesterday. In this guide, we will explain to you how to install games manually in Tencent Gaming Buddy. After it, you will be able to install the latest version of PUBG mobile in Tencent Gaming Buddy + many more games such as Asphalt 9, Clash Of Clans, Rise Of Civilizations, and more. This guide also covers how to copy/paste OBB files in Tencent Gaming Buddy.
Install Games In Tencent Gaming Buddy
Requirements: – In the very first step, we will change the Tencent Gaming Buddy language(English to Chinese). After it, we will install the ES File Explorer. Then the emulator will download another engine(around 500MB). Once the download complete, we will be able to run ES File Explorer. Then we will import the files(APK, OBB) to the Tencent Gaming Buddy PC Shared directory. After import, we will be able to see those files in ES File Explorer. Then install the APK and copy the OBB folder in SDCARD/Android/OBB directory. This is just a summary. Let’s learn step by step(with pictures).
Install APK, Copy/Paste OBB IN Tencent Gaming Buddy
Step 1.) Launch the Tencent Gaming Buddy. At the top-right corner, tap the menu button(three horizontal lines near the minimize icon). Choose the settings option. In the basics menu, under the language section, tap the drop-down button and change the language to Chinese. After it, restart the Android emulator(TGB). Make sure to quit it from the tray(In your PC, at the bottom-right corner, where you see date/time) too. Otherwise, it would not run.
Step 2.) When you restart it, you will see a completely different view. Head to the gamepad tab and on that screen, tap the + option. Choose ES File Explorer APK. You can download ES File Explorer APK from APKPure. Once selected, the game will prompt you a message in Chinese with (i) sign. Tapping the blue color button(confirm) will start the download process. The emulator will download another engine where you will be able to play manually installed games or run apps. You will see the download progress at the bottom of the Tencent Gaming Buddy Window.
Step 3.) Once the download complete, you will see a blue button just below the ES Explorer icon and a new app named QQ. On the same screen, tap the menu(three horizontal lines at the top-right corner) and choose the third option(settings). Change the language to English and save. Restart the Tencent Gaming Buddy. Make sure to quit it from tray menu too or run the task manager -> right click on Tencent Gaming Buddy and end task.
Step 4.) After changing the language to English, you will see the old UI but with two more apps; Es File Explorer and QQ. Tap the play button to start the ES File Explorer in the emulator.
Now, we have installed the ES File Explorer in the emulator engine. In the right side menu, tap the exit button two times to exit an app or go back to the home screen. If it’s running in the Chinese, then you need to change the language in the emulator. Pull the navigation menu(as same as when you swipe from top to bottom in Android) and tap the settings icon. It will take you to the settings. Scroll down to the bottom and tap the option next to A icon. On the next screen, choose the first option and change the language to English.
Almost everything is done now. Now, let’s learn how to import files from your PC to Tencent Gaming Buddy. And how to copy/paste OBB file in this emulator.
Import APK, OBB or Any Other Files From PC To Tencent Gaming Buddy
Step 1.) Open the My Computer(This PC or Drive Screen). Now, go to the directory where you have installed the Tencent Gaming Buddy in your PC. For example; I have installed it on the D drive. Open that drive and there should be a folder named “Temp”. Open it -> TxGameDownload -> open the MobileGamePCShared folder. Or simply search in the drive with this keyword – MobileGamePCShared. Paste the file/folder that you want to import. For now, I am taking PUBG Sanhok 0.8.0 version as an example. Download the PUBG Mobile XAPK from APKPure. Rename the file type from .XAPK to ZIP. Extract the ZIP file using WinRar software. It will create a new folder with the same name(file). Open that folder and you will get the APK and in the Android folder, you will get the OBB file(i.e. Com.Tencent.IG).
Copy the APK and OBB file to the MobileGamePCShared folder.
Step 2.) Launch the emulator again. Run the ES File Explorer. In the app, at the left side menu, scroll down below and turn on the root explorer option. After it, go to the home directory by tapping the / icon. And from that menu, head to the data folder.
Step 3.) In the data folder, there would be a folder named share1. From there you can access all the files stored in MobileGamePCShared Folder. Install the APK by clicking the icon. Long press the OBB folder(i.e. Com.tencent.Ig) and tap the copy option.
Once copied, go to the / directory again. Search for SD Card folder -> Android -> In the Android folder, create a new folder named obb. All you need to do is tap the new option and name it as obb. Once created, open it and paste the obb folder(com.yourgame.ig). That’s it. In this way, you can install other APK games in Tencent Gaming Buddy.
Key actions: – Tap the exit button to go back. Double tap the exit button to exit the app and go to the home screen. There you will see the list of apps or games you have installed. As you can see in below picture, I have installed the latest PUBG version in it(along with the pre-installed). To run the games properly, make sure to change the resolution. For example; To play PUBG, you need to run it in 1280*720 resolution. On the same window(home screen), tap the menu button -> engine -> In the resolution menu, choose 1280 or higher. And hit the save button. Restart it.
