To run Free Fire on a weak PC, all you need is a lightweight emulator, as the game itself shouldn't be a problem for your machine. In this regard, your best option is to download the SmartGaga emulator, as in addition to requiring little RAM, the application takes only 200Mb from your hard drive.
After finishing the download, follow the program's standard installation instructions. When the process is finished, proceed to the next step.
As soon as you run SmartGaga for the first time, you will see the screen shown in the image above. Note that the program already has a direct shortcut to download/run Free Fire, so you'll have even less work. But first, click on the gear icon in the side menu, and in the "Basic" tab, change the language in the section shown below:
After selecting "our language", restart the application for the changes to take effect.
As stated above, Smartgaga is extremely light, but it still has some simple options for you to optimize your Free Fire and run it perfectly on a weak PC. To do this, access the gear icon (Settings) in the main menu and select the "Advanced" tab.
If your PC is very weak, we suggest the following settings:
- Resolution: 720x1280 (DPI 320)
- CPU: Car
- RAM: 1024M
Save the settings and, after testing the performance in a match, adapt according to your machine's specifications.
