tutorial code crash on bluestacks emulator

I am learning the unreal engine and very impressed with what it can do.

I downloaded latest engine (4.14.3) and used the quickstart example (, which worked perfectly on my windows machine.

However, when I deploy the build to bluestacks emulator and run, it just shows “please wait” and then just crash.

Is there a place I can see logs in bluestacks?


Hello daxu,

Open the logcat monitor (located in <YOUR_ANDROID_SDK_LOCATION> ools\monitor.bat), this should do the trick.

<YOUR_ANDROID_SDK_LOCATION> is generally located in Appdata/Local if you use the Google Android SDK (coming from Android Studio for example) or in C:\NVPACK for CodeWorks Android SDK.

Cheers! :wink:

You can download nox with 5.1 android in multi-nox and redo this comparison. But you don’t have to, nox even with 5.1 android still stutter the most of time. Give a try to Memu, I was playing smoothly with that emulator, and nice to see if memu can beat Bluestack or not.

Really? I use also that emulator but it makes my computer lag, after I upgrade it on latest version of bluestacks from 3 to bluestacks 4. it gives me much straggling to use. Is there any way to fix it?
