    Blue Stacks? WHACK

    So I just installed Blue Stacks, and am attempting to interact with it ... it looks awful and the touch calibration is completely broken. I am certain that I downloaded the one that was supposed to be optimized for Surface Pro so now I'm wondering if I missed something in setup.

    Anybody use this app? It's confusing to me!

    Hm, I might have found the answer to my question:

    But how do you set something to 100% or 150%?

    thanks! that sorted it. I must confess, I'm not that impressed with blue stacks. Does anybody love it and could convince me otherwise?

    I think BlueStacks is more convenient if your heavily invested in the Android ecosystem.

    I had the same issue when i first installed Bluestacks. The touch was way off...

    I uninstalled it, and found that I installed the Wrong Version...

    Make sure you install from Run Mobile Apps on Windows PC or Mac with BlueStacks | Android App Player and choose the blue icon "NEW Optimized for Win8 Surface Pro" version. This fixed it.

    It seems they have fixed the issue with the 150%. I've been playing Simpsons Tapped out and it works ok. Sound doesn't work well, but you can play the game just fine. It's very responsive at times that it feels like a Win 8 Times, but more often than not, it feels kinda slow. They're still in beta, so hopefully it'll be looking pretty good soon.

    There are some apps that I consistently use in BlueStaks (like Words w/Friends and Word Trick (damn word games...)). I have other ones I have installed that work well (Stupid Zombies, Stupid Zombies II, CrossMe Color) but I am usually too busy exploring all of the other great things my Surface Pro can do instead of playing Android games.

    I can't seem to find the blue windows 8 button anymore on their site, did they remove it?
