- Visit The Official Website
- Hit The Download Button
- Install The Package On Your PC
- Follow On-Screen Instructions
Step 1.) Visit the official Tencent Gaming Buddy Website; https://syzs.qq.com/en/
Step 2.) Click on the download button to save installer file on your PC. The size of the installer would be around 9 MB.
Step 3.) Once downloaded, head to the directory/location/folder where you save it. Double click the installer package and give the permission to Windows to install on your machine.
Step 4.) After it, you will see the game logo and install button. Hit the install button to start downloading Tencent Gaming Buddy On PC.
Tencent Gaming Buddy Total Download Size: –
Well, it did not mention the total size of the file. But we monitored the data usage; it consumed around 3GB of data. Total Size – Less Than 3 GB(Approx.).
The official website does not have details on this topic. But I am going to show you my details; I played it on my Dell Laptop(8GB RAM, Direct X Version; 12, Intel HD Graphics 630/4GB, Nvidia GEFORCE GTX 1050 Graphics/4GB, Processor Speed – 2.8Ghz, Turbo Boost – Up to 3.7Ghz). It was running at 40-60FPS. Let me show you the usage: –
When running at 50-60 FPS, it was consuming 50%+ GPU, 17% of CPU(Total-2.8GHz). In short, it should work fine on a PC having up to 4GB of RAM, 4GB of Graphics Card, and processor speed should be around 1.8GHz. It may not work on a dual-core PC(at high settings, you can set it to low).
FPS – How Much FPS You Can Expect On Tencent Gaming Buddy?
It depends on your PC configuration. For me, it was rendering 50-60FPS most of the time. How to check FPS? Open the Tencent Gaming Buddy -> Play -> tap the menu button -> show FPS. Once enabled, it will show you FPS at the top-left corner.
You can change the default game settings(720p, auto-display) from the settings menu. Tap the menu -> settings -> game settings -> there you can change resolution from 720p to 1080p or Ultra HD 2K. And you can set the display on HD, auto, smooth, and balanced mode. Keep it low if you have a low-end PC.
Control Settings – Tencent Gaming Buddy Best Settings
Once you are all done; after installing and signing-in, it’s time to change mouse sensitivity. With default settings, it’s difficult to aim or look around. Go to the PUBG Mobile settings in Tencent Gaming Buddy -> sensitivity -> under the camera section -> change the sensitivity(that suits your game style);
- 3rd Person – No Scope, 2x Scope, 3x Scope, 6x Scope, red-dot, holographic, and aim-assist
- 1st Person – Same
Here’s my settings info that I am using in Tencent Gaming Buddy: –
- 3rd Person No Scope – 42%
- 2X, 3X, 4X, 6X, 8X – 4%
- Red-Dot, Holographic – 7%
Well, it actually depends on how you control the mouse. If you have good control over the mouse, then increase the sensitivity. How does it work? Basically, reducing the sensitivity makes the look around movement tight and increasing the sensitivity makes the look around movement light. If you are a rookie like me, then try my settings configuration.
I would recommend you to play the training mode before you start the match with teammates. In training mode, pick all the scopes and experiment with all the guns. This is the only way to choose the best settings.
Game Engine Settings: –
Tap the menu at the top right corner of the emulator’s window -> settings -> engine. For the best performance, set it to:-
- Rendering – Direct X+(High Stability, But high CPU Consumption)
- Enable the render cache
- Enable rendering optimizations(if you have selected Direct X+, OpenGL+)
- Set anti-aliasing to close or ultimate(On ultimate if you have high-end GPU)
- Set memory, the processor to auto
- DPI – 240
Save and Restart.
Tencent Gaming Buddy does not support Google Play Log-In. You need to connect with Facebook or Twitter or play as a guest. But if you have already an account and it is connected with Google Play, then you will have to link the game to Facebook or Twitter first in order to play with that account on PC. And it’s easy. Open your mobile -> PUBG Mobile -> Settings -> Basic -> in the basic menu, at the top-right corner, tap the + icon to link with one more service. Once done, head to the Tencent Gaming Buddy and log in with Facebook or Twitter.
