Gameloop Issues and Bugs
It has lots of issues and bugs. The developer of Tancent games are trying hard to solve those issues, but still some issues exists and some new issues arise.let’s start from the latest version issues.
High Cpu usage
Gameloop was a light weight emulator before. With medium configuration pc, anyone can install gameloop and could play PUBG or Call of Duty mobile.
With the recent update to version 18.104.22.168, that is a myth now a days. It was tested on Intel Core i7 8th processore with 16 GB DDR4 RAM.
While playing Call of duty mobile its allocates almost 70% of the CPU and 80% of the Ram. This is huge. This cause CPU overheating and we had to reduce CPU usage.
On the older version this was very low and did not impact on the CPU or RAM performance. This overheat the CPU.
Game Lagging and Freezing on Gameloop
When playing games, its a very common issue of lagging. In the recent version we notice that game sometimes freezes.
When you are playing games, you will see screen freezes but you can hear the game sound. No button and menus will work on the game. You just have to close the emulator and reopen the game.
When you reopen, you are automatically kicked out of the game. This is a very big issue to gameloop.
High Ping Rate
We tested this with one mobile and gameloop installed on a computer. Both used same network.
When we were playing Call of Duty Mobile we noticed that the ping rate on gameloop is 30% higher than the ping rate on mobile.
Google Play Sign in
We faced issues while signing in to google play service. All the we tried to sign in to gameloop google play sign in then it causes issues on that moment. Surprising fact is that, We were not been able to sign in to gameloop till now.
Game update create problem
Its another big issue of gameloop that, when the game is updated (Call of Duty Mobile) then you can not play the game instantly after update.
You need to wait 2-3 days for playing on gameloop emulator. Sometimes you may need to uninstall and reinstall the game.
Final Thoughts on gameloop safety
As gameloop is developed by a wellknown company so it can be considered that its safe. But there are some things which can be doubtful for safety issues.
In case of virus and malware, its safe and you can use it without any confusion. But gameloop has some bug and many software related issues.
Again gameloop has given us the opportunity to play the game on computer which is a great thing. Without gameloop we had to depended on the mobile phone.
