How To Download DarkOS Windows Emulator Android – Setup

A brand new open-source Windows emulator for Android is here. What’s even more interesting is that it is capable of running GTA V and other games too. The Dark OS emulator, just like other Windows emulators, is a wine-based project. It also requires Termux as well as Box86 and Box64.

The Dark OS emulator is one of the best Windows emulators out there because it has so many customizations and configurations that you can apply for the best performance. Additionally, it has all the up-to-date DX wrappers and drivers as well.Before heading to the download and setup process, let’s take a look at its minimum requirements. 

Minimum Requirements

  1. Android Version: Android 10 or above
  2. Processor: Snapdragon series
  3. RAM: 4GB

Now you would be asking about Mediatek processors or devices with Mali GPUs. Unfortunately, right now Mali GPUs are not compatible, but as the Dark OS is still in its early stages, a lot of improvements have yet to be made. 

DarkOS Windows Emulator Features:

  1. Gstreamer support, which is required for games like:
  • resident evil 7
  • devil may cry 5
  • amid evil
  1. Dedicated configuration app
  2. Unlike other emulators it provides you your entire device storage i.e all files and folder.

And many more, you will discover as you get used to the application. Now let’s get to the real talk, which you must be waiting for: the download and setup process.
