How to Play Knives Out on PC Complete Setup Guide (Working)

Knives Out on PCOne of the recent big mobile game releases in the Google Play Store is Knives Out by Netease Games. Along with Survivor Royale and Rules of Survival, Knives Out is a popular free battle royale game for Android and iOS that places 100 players onto a massive island to fight each other, just like in PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds by PUBG Corporation. Unfortunately, some Android devices–including emulators for PC–were unsupported for a while.

But recently a fix for the “sorry, your mobile device is not supported, currently” error message has been released for Nox App Player and Memu, two powerful Android emulators for PC. This males it possible to play on PC for the best gaming performance.

Below is a complete guide on how to play with keyboard and mouse using Nox or MEmu, whichever one you prefer. Both app players have been tested and confirmed to be working, but it seems Nox runs slightly better. Bluestacks is not supported at this time.

Looking for the Knives Out PC version? Here’s a separate complete guide to get you started.

How to Download and Play Knives Out on PC for Nox App Player and MEmu Android Emulator

Step 1:

Download and install the latest version (6.0.1.0 or later) of Nox App Player from Bignox: bignox.com

If this is your first time using Nox, here’s a guide to walk you through all the Android emulator’s settings.

OR

You can download and install MEmu App Player (version 3.6.7 or later) by Microvirt: memuplay.com

IMPORTANT NOTE: If you’re using MEmu, then you need to use DirectX+ in the app player’s settings. You must also be using Android 5.1.1 Lollipop as the operating system. You can check this in Settings app > About tablet.

Step 2:

Open the Google Play Store app and install Knives Out.

Configuring and Optimizing Knives Out on PC

Once the game has loaded into the main menu, you’ll need to adjust a few settings to play on PC for the best performance.

Go to settings (the gear icon) in the top-right corner.

In BASIC settings, change Gyro to OFF. This makes it so you can freely aim.

You may also want to turn on “High Framerate” for a small boost in FPS.

In CONTROL, choose the third option: Classic Mode. This makes it so you have a static joystick.

Under DRIVING, select the third option: Joystick Mode. You’ll be able to drive by using WASD keys. W = accelerate, S = brakes, A and D for steering.

Everything else you can configure for your own preference.

    I’m using Noxplayer, it shows no server selected on the main page, why?

    1. Knives Out is currently down for scheduled maintenance, but it’ll be back up and running soon.

    Hey, I’m experiencing some heavy stutter with mouse movement in this game, is this normal? The game is somehow fluid, its not FPS stutter, but movement stutter, like the mouse is hanging somewhere, this is weird ’cause I have a good pc, with an i5 3570 paired with 8gb of RAM and a R9 270X Toxic Edition, can you help me? Thanks in advance.

  3. hohoho

    I am using noxplayer on a Mac , however it still shows “sorry, your mobile device is not supported, currently”. why ??? what can I do to solve this

    1. Unfortunately the Mac version of Nox is not up to date like the Windows version.

      The last Mac update was August 23, 2017.
      The last Windows update was December 8, 2017.

      The windows version uses OpenGL 3.0, so you’ll have to use the latest Windows version on a different computer until Nox App Player is updated again for Mac.

    i had completed the download,but when i open it,the application always crash.Im using nox player 6.0

    1. I just tested RoS in Nox after the new update and it’s still working fine. Make sure Nox has the following settings:

      At least 2GB RAM.
      At least 2 CPU cores.
      Use OpenGL.

  5. no name

    it says no sever selected when using Noxplayer

    1. On the title screen, click on the area just above “START” to choose a server on the Server Selection menu. Usually “KNIVES OUT (Global)” and a regional server is available to play on.

      1. no name

        but the menu won’t pop up no matter what, though other buttons in the game work fine

        1. Can you show me a screenshot?

          1. sure! thanks for your help 🙂

          2. Thanks for the image.

            Strange, it’s working fine for me on Nox. Normally it should look like this: https://i.imgur.com/LKbgF3X.jpg
            Do you have the latest Knives Out APK installed? You can find it on APKPure: https://apkpure.com/knives-out/com.netease.ko

            Try MEmu App Player. I tested Knives Out on MEmu earlier today and it works.
