PUBG is the most popular Multiplayer Online Battle Arena (MOBA) game. PUBG Stands for PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds which means unknown players fight in a battle royal mode. The players may either fight as a solo member or in a small group with the winner being the last man alive. The success of the game led to the development of many other similar battle royale games one popularly being Fortnite BR. The game is free to download from Google Play Store for Android.
Gaming Buddy by Tencent for Windows who are also the developers of PUBG created the emulator specifically catered towards the game. The Gaming Buddy is able to handle the PUBG mobile and is well optimised to run even on low-end Windows PC. Though there is a PC version of PUBG, it is paid therefore an emulator is a very good option to play the game for free.
Today in this post I will talk about all the possible solutions to fix errors, crashes, lags and loading issues on the Tencent Gaming Buddy for Windows 7/8/10.

Troubleshooting Tencent Gaming Errors and Problems
1. Fix Lag or FPS Drop Issues on PUBG
The gaming buddy uses available resources on the PC to run. As different systems have different hardware and software specs a particular setting may not be helpful for the smooth and clutter-free running of TGB on the PC. Here are the best settings for Lag-Free gameplay. I am giving the best optimisation settings for Windows 10 but you make changes accordingly to your system based on specifications.
Here are the best settings to Fix Lag or freeze Issues on Tencent gaming buddy.
1. Right Click on TBG icon and click on Open File Location.
2. Now look for the File named ‘App Market’, right click and open Properties.
3. Here click on compatibility Tab.
4. Now Under Compatibility Mode select any other lower windows version and right check on the ‘Run this program in this mode’.
If you face any issues click Run Compatibility Troubleshooter and select recommended settings.
5. Also, make sure to select Run the ‘Program as Administrator‘ and hit Apply.
6. If your system is running on Windows 7 download and Install DirectX from Google Search. Win 8/10 have them pre-installed.
7. Close all the Tabs and open TBG, open settings in the TBG.
8. Here Click on Engine, select OpenGL if you have a good GPU and OpenGL+ if a strong graphics processor. And select DirectX for good CPU and DirectX+ if a very strong CPU.
9. Right, check all the boxes available but you have a dedicated GPU card like Nvidia and AMD you can select Priotorise Dedicated GPU. If not then uncheck that box.
10. Keep Anti-aliasing Close, set memory less than your device RAM and keep the resolution low or high based on system hardware specs.
2. Loading Stuck on 98% Error
This is the second most common issue which users are facing while trying to launch the App and the Apps stucks on loading. I have come up with some of the best possible solutions for the same.
Tweak Windows Defender Settings
First, uninstall the Gaming Buddy by going to the Programs under the Control panel. Now, search for Windows Defender. Here click on Windows Defender Security Center and click on Virus and Threat Protection. Now open Configurations for protection against viruses and threats and Deactivate all the options available.
Once done, go to the downloaded (if deleted download again) Tencent gaming buddy file and click on the .exe file. Before hitting the install button click on the Browse option and delete Emulator Folder if present, create a new Emulator folder and click OK. Install the App and the issue is solved. Done!
Uninstall the Antivirus App
An antivirus App may cause trouble with the loading of codes necessary for the launching of Gaming Buddy. So, it is better to uninstall the App. You can also try to relax the scanning ability of the Anti-Virus by changing the settings of the AV App to protect peripheral data of the system.
Change App Engine
The DirectX and OpenGL have different working conditions, one needs a good CPU while other a good graphics processing unit respectively. So, I recommend you to change the engine and try relaunching the emulator, in most cases the issue is solved if it is due to engine incompatibility.
Delete Temp Folder
You can find the location of the Temp folder in the diagnosis option of the TGB. At the bottom of the diagnosis box, you will see the path. Open the Temp Folder and Delete the temporary file/s. Relaunch the TGB to check if the issue is solved.
3. Fix Voice Chat | Mic Not Working | Audio Issues
This is not an error faced by few but more than 10% gamers in PUBG universe. I have found a simple fix for the same.
Go to Sound Settings on your Windows. Look for App volume and device preferences under Other sound options. Make sure your TG Buddy is open in the background. If so, you will see TBG under the running Apps. Here you will see Input and Output options as Default. Just Change both to the USB device. Now right click on Sound Icon → Open Sound → go to Advanced options each time for Playback and Recording. Here untick all the options under Exclusive Mode.
