When I install the app I can only see the window with some instructions and can’t enter the app… What should I do next?

First of all, it’s absolutely OK, that you can’t enter the app on the first run. This is because ExaGear Strategies is made for playing PC games on Andorid devices. So, the app needs some games (particualrly their exe files) to be installed to let you in. On the first run you don’t have any games (exe files) so we display our basic instruction in front of you to make sure you know what to start from. This is the instruction:

What games can I play via ExaGear Windows Emulator?

Also, we’ve got an unofficial list of games. They’ve been tested by the community and enthusiasts. The full unofficial list includes 140+ titles and is still growing:


The best advice would be to adhere to these lists and subscribe to our news to keep yourself up-to-date to the lists’ latest updates.

In fact, the games with the release date between the 90s and 2005 are the best ones to try. In case you would like to install the game which is not from one of our lists (official or unofficial) always consider this parameter.

Where can I get the games?

You cannot download any copyright content and use it for free because it violates the law in most of the countries. So, we strongly recommend you to use only official and legal sources. One of the best sources of the games that meet technical requirements of Android devices can be found on www.gog.com. This is one of the largest and well-known computer games online marketplace. The most of the titles available in our of the official list have been taken from their website. So, if you buy the games on gog.com and use their setup files we can almost guaranty you the successful installation. The games taken from other sources are not guaranteed because they simply have not been tested yet.

Also, you can try to install the games that you used to play on your pc and the ones that either have already been installed on your computer or the ones, you have got an installation CD for. If the game is within the release dates range of 1990 – 2005 appointed earlier, there are high chances of successful installation.

The other credible and legal sources of games are:

What are the minimum technical requirements for my Android to use ExaGear on?

The main technical requirement for the hardware is that it should be nor less than Android 5.0. The devices which have this operating system can almost guaranty that the proper title will work. The other question is what the proper game is like. These are the games with a release date 1990 – 2005 and which support the software rendering. It’s not possible to know for sure if a particular game supports this or not. So, the best choice would be to run all types of strategies and RPGs within the appointed time range.

I’ve already got some titles installed on my PC. Can I transfer them to ExaGear for playing on Android?

Yes, definitely, you can. You can try. Especially, if the game is included in our official list (or unofficial one) the chances are even higher! In case the game isn’t included in one of these lists, simply try to copy all the game files from your PC to Android device using this tutorial.

I’ve installed the game but it doesn’t work! How can I fix this?

It depends on circumstances. If the game you are installing does not belong to any of our lists, so there may be quite a lot of troubles and errors that may occur which we don’t know about yet. But we are working hard to widen our lists, especially the official one.

One of the most spread issue is the new Android OS updates which we aren’t caught up with at the moment. This part is on us, so be patient because it usually takes us very little time to fix the Android dedicated bugs.

I’ve installed the game but don’t know what exe file to choose.

If you face that problem, you likely to have installed the game which is not included in our official list of supported games. In this case, you should find the exe file with the title closest to the game’s name. For instance, for StarCraft it is the “StarCraft.exe”, for Red Alert – “Red_Alert.exe”, Fallout 2 – “fallout2.exe”, etc. But sometimes it even may not work. For example, for Civilisation 3 the valid exe file turned out to be “C3Conquests.exe”. So, if the most obvious way doesn’t work, try to launch everything and just remember which exe worked.
