We’ve just released Remix OS Player, an Android Marshmallow emulator that lets you run Android games and apps directly on your Windows PC.

Download it here: www.jide.com/remixos-player, play with it and give us feedback here: http://bit.ly/2cxZhBs.

Check out the video intro here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zLcCYmWTl-g

Remix OS Player is now the easiest way for you to experience Remix OS, especially if you still haven’t been able to get it working on your PC.

And, just like Remix OS for PC, it’s free.
Give us feedback and let’s build it together.

Good to know you're getting into the android emu competition!

I've been testing several android emulators on my device, and I sue mostly MEMU as it is the fastest and most stable.

Still, having RemixOS as an emu on Windows 10 would be great. I made a few tests and here are my impression:
- not enough setting on the advanced tab before booting up. I'd like to assign more RAM and CPU cores, and most importantly, a higher resolution as my device has a 2160x1440 resolution.
- Performance is quite low, maybe it will be better if I can assign more resources.
- no full screen mode - this is essential for running it as a real emulator
- I can't find a way to share files and APKs from my windows partition as in other emulators

Looking forward for more updates :)

This is what I get:

emulator: ERROR: x86_64 emulation currently requires hardware acceleration!
Please ensure Intel HAXM is properly installed and usable.
CPU acceleration status: Unable to open HAXM device: ERROR_FILE_NOT_FOUND

Please help! :)

This is great. I've had Remix OS as a dual boot option on my Windows 8.1 laptop. But wanted something that I can quickly switch between Android and Windows, rather than reboot each time. Recently found LeapDroid and it perfectly fits my bill so far. I'm glad Remix is jumping on the VM direction as well. I'll check the OS player.

Getting this error. Looks like VT-x needs to be turned on? I'll keep checking.

Cursor issues

I installed the new Remix.exe and it appears to load fine but the cursor force moves to the left leaving me unable to click anything. Anyone else having issues? I am on a Lenovo 460s touchscreen model. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling but still having the same issue. Any help would be appreciated.

You need to install Intel HAXM. I had the same issue and resolved it by installing Intel HAXM. It basically reserves a particular amount of RAM from your PC for running Android x86 sources. I have linked it in my guide here, have a look: http://techbeasts.com/download-remix-os-player-for-pc/

for the ones who does have virtualisation error ,you need to go to tools and instal intel haxm app.
it is a intel android emulator runtime provided with remix player.

now my feedback....
this need a full screen mode for the app.
it need to save settings for resolution/cores/ram.
it need ota updates.
It need stable and working play store.
It need smoother zoom and scroll.
The key mapper need to be in app instead of in rom.
it need open gl es 3.0 support.
need 4cores 4gb ram support.
and this absolutely need game controller support!
it need large hdd image support.(8 16 32 64 gb)
outside this everything is ok.

Did you face black screen on boot after launching it? If so, then how did you fix it?

Can't be installed. Gives me error. Can't find driver or something. Saw in the comments on the download page many people have the same problem after Anniversary update... So messed up.

The guy that's saying to install it from the tools folder. What I need to install, there are many things.

    @moman2000 - Amazing work on Project ROC! I've shared it with our dev team. :)

    As for AMD, as I alluded to before, AMD doesn't support VT and thus, Remix OS Player (based on Android Studio) isn't supported at this time.

    Thanks!

    Wow, you guys are awesome!
    I don't know if you guys have seen my work here!, but I am also trying to root and install xposed on this but my AMD A8-3500M is not supported :(

    Regards,

    I've installed Remix OS Player, but it won't start.:confused:
    Core2Duo 3 GHz
    RAM: 2GB.
    Win10 32 Bit
    core2 does not have the minimum requirement for the player,you should have read it first.
