Has anyone tried to fly infinite flight on pc?

I know a program that can mirror your android screen via usb cable. Unfortunately I don’t remember its name

Later on, I might just try to get Apple TV and airplay it and hook up a yoke/keyboard to my phone.

Hope it turns out well.

I used to play Infinite Flight on my Acer Nitro 5 gaming laptop, through Bluestacks and JoyToKey.

It stopped working after the 19.4 update, though.

A little update: android is not starting, however I will try to start it with using different ways to install, other operating systems…

Infinite Flight is not supported on emulators. You may or may not be able to get it to work. As many have said after the 19.4 release there are issues using Bluestacks which may roll over into others as well.

But I am not going to use bluestacks

I understand but the issues may not be bluestacks specific. My point is that it may or may not work.

I don’t suggest Phoenix OS, It is very very lag on my high performance computer
i7-8700
GTX1070

Mirror your android screen to a big screen is also not recommended as the resolution don’t become better after you mirror it to your bigger screen. The best way to play infinite flight on big screen is a emulator or just install Android OS into your computer, but unfortunately emulator can’t run the latest version of infinite flight, I haven’t try it on a Android OS installed on a computer with intel CPU.

If you can get Android X86 to work the experience may not be optimized, and may not work well, but I’d imagine it will work. Phoenix OS (from my quick google search) seems like good old android just with a more desktop like interface, correct me if I’m wrong, and is also to my understanding not an emulator, so I would hazard to say it should be fine, but you are definitely in uncharted waters, and I’d be hesitant to give you any assurances.

I have heard about varying levels of optimization for x86 in android apps, and I really don’t know where IF falls on that, it’s been a while since a popular phone used x86 because ARM is really just becoming so good, even pushing into the laptop market now, but the sum what recent push of android apps onto chrome books has prompted a lot of backend stuff by google, and app developers to get apps working better on x86. I should also say that this is simply the issues at face value I see with running IF on android on your pc, there could be a whole host of other issues with Phoenix OS, but it seems worth a try as long as your expectations are in check…

you can use liveflightconect on your pc to use a joystick and trottle and then mirror your phone to the tv screen mirroring service something like Apple TV.

Another little update: I tried to start remix OS, but it didn’t load - stuck at loading screen for 40-50 minutes then I just turned it off because it is too late and I need to sleep. Tomorrow I am going to try to fix this because I’ve seen solutions for this so that can probably work, but I am not sure.
Remix os is not updating. Why remix OS? Here are reasons:

  1. Android x86 - not showing grub
  2. Phoenix OS - outdated and and lagging, not loading (stuck at Detecting Phoenix OS… Detected at /dev/sda3)
  3. Prime OS - didn’t try because infinite flight needs x64. It has x64, but my processor can’t run this type because x64 version of Prime OS needs SSE 4.2, which my processor doesn’t have (Intel 2 Quad)
  4. Bliss OS - doesn’t have x32
  5. OpenThos - didn’t try. But it is not really popular so it hasn’t much information, because it is quite new.
  6. Bluestacks - can’t start infinite flight
  7. NOX - sometimes start, sometimes no
  8. Andy - just NO. Some time ago they had miner built-in so don’t just install, it is bad.

Remix OS maybe is a good solution, as I heard it is fast so I am going to try this.

To be honest buddy, I would have stopped at it not working on RemixOS and Phoenix OS.
You said yourself it’s a core 2 quad, I’m willing to promise you that it will have poor performance. My laptop (Razer Blade 15) has an i7 8750H and a GTX1070 graphics card, and even that struggled to run the simulator smoothly when emulated. My PC which is even more powerful also struggled. You’re using a PC with 2 physical cores, a very low L1 and L2 cache. Whilst it may be 64 bit, even most mobile processors in phones and tablets have 8 cores. Remix OS also doesn’t have the greatest support anymore as it’s been fully discontinued and hasn’t been updated for years. There is also the fact that Infinite Flight is built to work on mobile devices that it’s specifically designed and optimised to work with. Driver support will be limited and app compatibility will be hit and miss. I had remixOS running on my Pixel C with Nvidia Hardware and it was buggy and unstable. Many apps refused to start or operate correctly, so I got rid of it.
There is also no guarantee the app will continue to work. Emulator support is currently not available in the sim, and there is no guarantee it will be present again. Whilst you are installing the OS onto your PC, you are trying to use ARM software on x86 hardware, it’s not intended for that usage.

Honestly if your objective is to just hook up a joystick/ pedals and the like, look at LiveFlight Connect, which I linked on the 4th reply to this thread.

Although I haven’t tried an emulator or ever would want to, I think a laptop for emulating things is not the best idea. The processor isn’t the same as a regular processor, as it uses it’s power more on graphics than on actual processing power (in terms of H in intel processors). Then comes the graphics card, which if you were to compare it to reality, isn’t the same in terms of performance. Laptop GPU’s have a slower clock speed, texture rate, have a smaller amount of shader units, the list goes on. I have a GTX 1070 in a rig, and it would most likely differ vastly. In a PC/Tower, the components are free and have more space to cool and perform operations better. Just look at how chunky all of the parts are!

If you were to emulate anything, you have to make sure you have a certain dedicated amount of power for it, or else your laptop will struggle trying to process a computer inside of a computer. Sorry if this was off-topic, but I just wanted to remind you guys that you need to make sure you have enough power to process an emulator. This is why some emulators might of been laggy for you @Ryanairy55

I suppose to be fair the lowest processor supported by IF for iPhones (and I only chose iPhones because the progression is much easier to follow with what devices are supported, and what processor they have) the A8 has a single core score close to 1.5 the core 2, but the core 2 quad he has has double the cores, depending on your graphics setup your going to struggle here. Definitely don’t expect anything above low settings, pretty much your playing on an iPad mini 4 graphics depending. If your expecting crazy performance either a PC update or a new phone is definitely going to be in order, I think the fact that it’s a mobile game is a little deceptive in terms of its power requirements, the A13 in apples newest phones is going punch for punch with the core i7 from the same timeframe, phones are really good, like definitely to the point of a mid range gaming pc for sure processor wise, and if not there getting close graphics wise, now you don’t need an A13 to run IF, and you probably don’t need a top of the line PC to do so either, but with a core 2 quad I’m not sure it’s worth your hassle unless this is just a fun project, because let’s face it we’ll need something to tinker with these days…
