5 emulators for PC that can play Ragnarok in 2019
BlueStacks is one of the most popular emulators that allow you to play all the latest Android games and apps.
After the most recent update, Bluestacks 4 contains a wide range of additional features, and a powerful performance boost. The BlueStacks team claims that this version is ”6 times faster than Samsung Galaxy S9+ ” and up to 8 times faster than the previous version of the software.
Among the many additional features, Bluestacks 4 also gives you the power to customize gaming controls, can run multiple apps or games at the same time, and has a better looking user-friendly interface.
Even though you have an almost unlimited range of apps that you can use with BlueStacks, this software has some great features that are designed specifically for gaming.
One of the best features that BlueStacks has under the hood is the fact that you can personalize the mapping of your keyboard. You can create custom keyboard maps that can be used specifically for a certain type of game, or keyboard maps that apply to your entire use of this software. This allows you to use your keyboard and mouse exactly how and when you want to.
The new and improved version of BlueStacks is light-weight and more powerful than its previous versions, meaning that you can use this software on medium-end PCs.

NoxPlayer is another great software option that allows you to easily emulate the latest version of Ragnarok. This app has a wide range of customization options and features and everything is tied together by a well-built, and friendly user-interface.
It is recommended that NoxPlayer is used with an above-average PC for an optimal experience, because of the impact it has on your PCs resources, but that doesn’t mean it can’t be ran by PCs on the low end of the performance spectrum.
The use of your computer’s resources will increase if you’re planning on playing multi-player games, or running more instances of Nox at once. You have the possibility to run as many instances of this software as your computer can afford.
As we mentioned above, NoxPlayer has a good range of customization power when it comes to your settings. One of the most useful customization is the ability to choose between displaying your game in complete full screen mode, or play using 720p or Full HD capabilities.
You also have access to change the graphical settings of the app – DirectX and OpenGL, and also settings relating to your CPU speed and the use of RAM, and apps are easily installed by using drag-and-drop.
One of the best features of NoxPlayer is the fact that it comes with pre-enabled Root access. Root access allows you to access the :/C partition of your virtual Android device.
This allows installation of software that changes information in the root partition. After enabling this option from the System Settings, Nox will automatically install SuperSU – a small app that will be the ‘control center’ of your rooted virtual device, allowing you to grant root access or deny it.
On the right hand side of your screen, NoxPlayer also has a great toolbar that allows you easy access to important options for your virtual device – take screenshots, set location, use video recorder, turn the orientation of your virtual android screen, transfer files between your PC and the virtual machine, etc.
Even though the interface of Nox is designed specifically to be very intuitive, if for example you don’t know how to connect your external controller, or if you have any other issues or questions, you can visit the official NoxPlayer FAQ page, or check out the Nox tutorials .

MuMu emulator is another great software option that allows you to emulate and play your Ragnarok M game on your PC. This software is a light-weight option compared to Bluestacks and NoxPlayer, but also has a great range of features.
It’s interface is designed to be user-friendly, and allows you access to customization options relating to the computer power and RAM you want to allocate to your virtual Android device. It has easy drag-and-drop features, and also allows you to change resolution settings, for an optimal gaming experience.
You can also connect your controller with MuMu, to get rid of using the keyboard and mouse. This works well for the users that are already used to playing games using controllers, but you can also set custom keyboard shortcuts for every action you would take in the game.
How to change Ragnarok FPS for better performance?
As we mentioned above, we found a ‘hack’ on the Internet that allows your computer to reach a level of 60 fps (frames per second) while running the latest Ragnarok on BlueStacks 4 and NoxPlayer.
These settings will only work if your system is capable of handling the required power. If you own a low-end or average computer, don’t use this method.
Note: This is not an actual ‘hack’, as it does not imply any unofficial tinkering. It is actually just a set of settings that can be applied to your software, allowing you to increase performance.
Settings for BlueStacks 4:
- Find and click on the Gear button at the top right corner of your Bluestacks window, and then click on Settings
- In the Display tab – set your resolution to the largest that your display allows, and also set your DPI to High
- In the Engine tab, set the graphics mode to DirectX, CPU cores to 4, and memory to 4096 MB
- Click the Restart Now button to restart the software and apply all changes
Settings for NoxPlayer:
- Find and click on the Gear icon in the upper right corner of NoxPlayer
- Click on Advanced Settings, and in the Performance tab, set it to Custom , then choosing the largest resolution available
- In the tab Startup Settings choose the option ‘Tablet’
- Set the rendering mode to Speed (DirectX) , and the framerate settings to 60.
You can of course choose the best resolution settings in order to fit your own screen. When it comes to RAM memory allocation to your virtual Android device, you can calculate the amount of MB resulted by multiplying 1GB by 1024. (eg. 5 GB RAM x 1024 = 5192MB).
Ragnarok M in-game settings:
- Click on More > Settings – found in the upper right corner of the game screen
- Set resolution to Default – this will apply the resolution of your emulator settings
- In Power Saver Mode uncheck the Screen Saver – this will avoid auto-low graphic settings when in idle mode
- Click on the Displayed Players tab, and set it to High – this option allows you to see all players in the game
