How to increase the RAM of BlueStacks.

Note: this will increase the performance, but don't expect you can play The Witcher 3, it's a slight improvement.

Steps:
  1. Completely close BS and all BS processes/services.

  2. Click the Start button and look for regedit (alternatively cmd and then input the command regedit in it


3. Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE -> SOFTWARE -> BlueStacks -> Android and click it



4. Then on the right rightclick on Memory -> Edit
5. Now click on DECIMAL and input the value of the RAM you want.



Never choose a value higher than half your PC ram, i suggest stick to 1/4 of it with systems over 6 GB of RAM (e.g. my pc had 8 GB and the value i choose is 2048 = 2 GB).

6. Click Ok, close regedit and restart the pc.

7. After that your bluestacks RAM is permanently boosted.

Remember: in case of update or reinstall is probably necessary do this again.

===========================================================================

How to change the Window Mode Size of BlueStacks.

Note: this will allow you to override the default size of the Window Mode as you wish.

Steps:
  1. Completely close BS and all BS processes/services.

  2. Click the Start button and look for regedit (alternatively cmd and then input the command regedit in it)


3. Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE -> SOFTWARE -> BlueStacks -> Android -> FrameBuffer -> 0 and click it

Now you should be able to see 2 keys (WindowHeight and WindowWidth)



4. Rightclick on WindowHeight -> Edit

5. Now click on DECIMAL and input the height size you want (e.g. 600) and click Ok.

6. Rightclick on WindowWidth -> Edit

7. Now click on DECIMAL and input the height size you want (e.g. 1024) and click Ok.

8. Close regedit

===========================================================================

How to change the path of the Shared Folder.

Note: this will allow you to set the Shared Folder in a more easily reachable location.

Steps:
  1. Completely close BS and all BS processes/services.

  2. Click the Start button and look for regedit (alternatively cmd and then input the command regedit in it)


3. Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE -> SOFTWARE -> BlueStacks -> Android -> SharedFolder -> 0 and click it



4. Then on the right rightclick on Path -> Edit
Now you should be able to see the default path

5. Change it with path choosen by you (e.g. C:\Users\DaemonXSoul\BS Shared Folder\ )

6. You can also change the name the folder had in BS (optional)

7. In the same place as before rightclick on Name -> Edit and change BstSharedFolder to the name you want.

8. Close regedit and restart the pc.

Latest Version Yan Ng Bluestack 1
And Yes Kasama Na Ang Bluestack 2 Sa Mga Updates Tutorial Ko.
Meron bang kalikot trick bosing para ma-solve yung problema sa pag-install ng compatible tun device sa version ng phone model device ng bluestacks? Yung tun.ko (c/o droidvpn) installer yung sinasabi ko dahil di siya makahanap ng compatible tun module. Nagsubok/nagbakasakali na rin akong baguhin yung phone model, ayaw pa rin. Baka may alam kang version ng BS na medyo friendly o paraan para makapag-test ako ng maayos sa vpn apps dito. TY.
