For the Record: How to Run World of Tanks Blitz on PC (by Jeno)
Hello everyone, not having a powerful enough mobile device? Ever wondered how to run WoT Blitz on PC? Here’s a guide how to make it run by Jeno. Please note that playing online on a PC is actually illegal on EU and RU servers. So this is just for testing purposes you know ;) Earlier, it was written that WoT Blitz doesn’t run on Bluestacks. Well, it does now and here’s how to do it in several easy steps. The following description was made by Jeno. Enjoy! 1. Go to this download. This is Bluestacks App Player pre-rooted. Basically, if you don’t know Android, this is the hacked version of the Android 4.4 OS running through bluesetacks. We need to have it rooted so we can use the tool in a next step. 2. Just install bluestacks from the download and open it up. You will get some initial android config, just get through it. 3. Next, open up Play Store (some more Google config shit may appear – you may possibly need a google account to log in, depends from region to region) 4. In the Play Store, Search for WoT: Blitz and install it. Upon opening WoT blitz, it will actually download the game (install on “internal memory”, it is ever so slightly faster) 5. In the meantime, install Tincore Keymapper also from Play Store. (Now this would start a tricky bit configuring this app but Jeno comes with the solution!) Ideally I would give you my profile but I can’t see how in the hell you export or import profiles :/ 6. Open up WoT Blitz and log in. (typing in bluestacks might be tricky later) 7. Tincore Keymapper configuration (with pictures!): This is what you get when you open TCKM. Basically this app is very easy to configure once you know two little tricks. Firstly, you can press any button on your physical keyboard and it will show up on the screen. To get the nice D-pad, simply press the four WASD buttons, or IJKL or arrow keys or 8462 on numpad. You can drag it around to place it but we will do that later. We need to change one setting int he TCKM options. Click on the vertical three dots on the top left. Then, go to settings and find this: “Open mapper on sequence” Basically what this will do is bring up the menu we see on the left side there, but wherever we are. Click on the space below the “open mapper on sequence” text. Next, click clear & capture. Press your desired button to open up the mapper. I have set it to T (T,1 = button wodn, T,2 being release) Then click stop and accept. Try the hotkey now, it should open the mapper wherever you are. (If you selected a character key like I did, it may also open up google search if you are on homescreen). 8. When this is done we can config the buttons properly. Open up WoT: Blitz and go into the options menu on top left and find the controls menu. (Ignore, the LAI, it’s left alt that I pressed for alt+prtscr :P) Now, open up the keymapper with your hotkey. By default it will always give you a joystick in the center. Just click it and scroll down to “disabled” to remove it, it wont be needed. Now, if you have other buttons on screen already, like the WASD d-pad and such, you can now move it over to the bottom left and put it nicely on the wot joystick. Do the same with the fire button and “zoom” button. Now the camera panning is slightly more difficult. What I did is pressed all four arrow keys to get another D-pad. Next you need to click that and change operation mode to ” Touch area centering” . Then move the thing rougly as I did. Basically, the bigger you make it, the more sensitive your buttons will be. You notice I have it wider than it is tall, so the vertical sensitivity is lower. Next, click on the top rright of the TCK window (bring up your mapper with your hotkey as necessary) and click the three vertical dots. Click save profile and give it a name. Then click the checkbox to apply it. (If the profile ever stops working, just re apply it. Now, either at this moment or earlier, you will have gotten a prompt saying that the keymapper needs root, allow it forever. Next up you need to set the keymapper as your default keyboard and input, it will also pop that up itself. Now, open up the tutorial (it may have started already actually, if that’s the case, just get through the first bit with the mouse and then test the controls.
