Navigate Menus and Issue Combat Commands With Mouse and Keyboard Shortcuts
As a gacha RPG with mostly automated gameplay, the vast majority of your gameplay in Street Fighter: Duel will be spent navigating through menus in order to claim rewards, unlock new characters, upgrade your roster, and put together powerful teams. Even when in combat, since your fighters move and attack automatically, your inputs are limited to clicking on their Super Skills in order to unleash their most powerful moves, as well as follow them up with combos.
Suffice to say, while mobile gamers are forced to control their game using virtual buttons on their touchscreen, those who play Street Fighter: Duel on PC with BlueStacks can gain access to a superior control scheme using their mouse and keyboard, thanks to the Keymapping Tool. This feature lets users create their own personalized control schemes using their PC peripherals, and even their gamepad.
To access the Keymapping Tool, you must simply launch the game and then press Ctrl + Shift + A, or press the tool’s button on the BlueStacks side panel. This command will open the Advanced Editor screen, in which you can examine your current key bindings, modify them, delete them, or add new ones. To modify your bindings, simply click on the shortcut you wish to customize, and then press the button you wish to bind it to. Conversely, if you want to delete a binding, simply hover over it and then click on the “X” button that appears beside it. Finally, if you want to add more controls, simply choose the desired function on the rightmost panel, and drag and drop it wherever you need it, followed by assigning it a key binding.
Before long, you’ll have a control scheme that will give you the best comfort and intuitiveness when playing Street Fighter: Duel on PC. And it’s all thanks to BlueStacks and its Keymapping Tool. Just remember to click on “Save” once you finish setting up your controls to implement your tweaks.
Try Out Different Setups and Strategies On One Same Screen
As a gacha RPG, one of the biggest driving factors in SF: Duel is the fact that you can unlock a wide variety of fighters and use them to create powerful squads to defeat your enemies. However, while putting together teams is as easy as clicking a few buttons, unlocking top tier Street Fighter: Duel characters is a completely different matter, considering that you can only get them from the gacha, and you have no control over what characters you’ll get from every pull. Moreover, considering that you need to pay premium currency for every summoning, it’ll be a long time before you get a full team of top tier fighters.
It goes without saying that, when it comes to the variety of characters you can get, you’ll likely be full of subpar and mediocre heroes, and possibly only get one or two top tier heroes from your pulls. Nevertheless, even with the average heroes, you can still experiment with different setups and fight team compositions that can give you great results. In this sense, while you’ll probably want to reroll in order to score powerful heroes from the very beginning, BlueStacks lets you use the Instance Manager to simplify experimenting with different setups and character combinations.
The Instance Manager is a BlueStacks feature that lets you create as many instances of our Android app player as you need, which in turn lets you access any game on multiple accounts at the same time. As such, you can play SF: Duel on different accounts simultaneously in order to experiment with different setups, without the hassle of swapping between your different accounts.
To use the Instance Manager, you simply need to press Ctrl + Shift + 8 while on BlueStacks, or simply click on the feature’s corresponding button on the side panel. This command will bring up the instance panel where you can check out your created instances, launch or close them, or delete them. Moreover, by clicking on the “+ Instance”, you can create as many instances as you need, keeping in mind that each of these that you run will consume additional CPU and RAM resources.
Once all your instances are up and running, all you need to do is download and install Street Fighter: Duel on each of them, and you’ll be free to experiment with different team compositions and setups, without having to swap back and forth.
And speaking of playing on multiple instances…
Reroll With Ease By Playing on Multiple Accounts Simultaneously
It’s quite difficult to unlock the best Street Fighter: Duel characters in one sitting, mostly because the odds of getting A-Grade fighters from the gacha is only 4-61% per pull. And beyond that, the odds of getting SPECIFIC A-Grade fighters is only 0.197% per pull. This basically means that you’ll potentially need to perform hundreds of pulls before you get the characters that you’re looking for.
These low odds often result in gamers wanting to reroll in Street Fighter: Duel, in order to get better odds of summoning specific top-tier units from the very beginning. The way this works is through gaming the system by starting a new game, progressing until you get your first free summonings, and then restarting until you get the characters that you want. And while it can take a lot of cycles until you’re satisfied, the BlueStacks Instance Manager will also aid you in rerolling, by effectively letting you do it on multiple accounts at the same time.
By creating multiple instances of the game, you can effectively multiple the number of pulls you perform per cycle. And if you’re worried about having to play and advance on each instance individually, you can use the Instance Sync tool to significantly streamline the process.
The Instance Sync feature, as it name implies, synchronizes the actions that you perform on one instance across all other active instances, effectively letting you play on multiple accounts at the same time, without the hassle of having to control each of these individually. The way this works is by putting all your instances on one same screen (such as the main menu screen), turning on the Sync feature, and then playing on your main account as you normally would. As such, BlueStacks will mirror all your actions perfectly across all your other instances, allowing you to reroll on multiple accounts at the same time with ease.
Automate Your Gameplay and Progression With Useful Macros
A lot of the progression in games like these can often boil down to completing the same daily quests, or farming the same few missions non-stop in order to obtain valuable resources and upgrade materials. And while these tasks are often quite easy, they take a lot of time, which can make them difficult to complete if you have a busy schedule. With BlueStacks, however, you can create useful macros to automate some of the more repetitive and monotone tasks in SF: Duel.
To start using the macro feature on BlueStacks, simply press Ctrl + Shift + 7 to bring up the recorder. In this panel, you can view your created macros, modify their keybindings and settings, or create new ones by clicking on “Record new macro”. With the recorder running, you simply need to perform the action you wish to automate, and then stop the recorder. Afterward, whenever you press the corresponding key binding, BlueStacks will repeat the actions you recorded in your macro with 100% precision. As such, you can focus more on the fun parts of your games, and let BlueStacks handle the more repetitive tasks.
For added usability, you can click on the gear icon beside your new macro to modify its properties. In this sense, you can even set it to loop indefinitely until you stop it manually. This macro will be quite useful for features like the AFK farming system in SF: Duel, shown on the screenshot above, as you can set a macro to collect your AFK rewards a couple times a day to avoid overcapping and missing out on rewards. As such, you won’t miss out on prizes if you’re unable to play for extended periods, by simply getting BlueStacks to claim them for you.
The above is only scratching the surface when it comes to everything you can do when playing Street Fighter: Duel on PC with BlueStacks. Try it out for yourself and enjoy the best mobile gaming experience on your own computer.
