    For all people, the pandemic has meant a new period in which large amounts of time have to be spent indoors. This is true, because to protect ourselves and our family members, the best way is to stay safe under the roof of your home. However, faced with this, many people have needed to find new ways to have fun.

    Fortunately, everyone has a personal phone, or at least this is the rule in most developed countries. Thanks to this, anyone can access endless entertainment methods that are all at their fingertips. One such way to entertain oneself is video games, and one very famous today is Genshin Impact.



    What is Genshin's impact? How can you play?

    This is an RPG role-playing game, which is cross-platform and can be downloaded for free through its publication in the Google PlayStore. This is very important, because being a free game, it means that it is subject to a greater number of players, as the free games in the Playstore are always distributed like hot cakes.

    But the real reason the game is so popular, aside from its characters, is the experience it offers its players. This is because the game is Open World type, just like GTA or Saints Row. In this, you are in a world with medieval connotations and in which there are magic, monsters, dragons and other great items.

    Genshin Impact can be downloaded on both PC and Playstation, in addition to the publication of its mobile version it also includes devices that use iOS. To be able to play it on PC, you need a series of requirements or minimum requirements that the game has. If your computer doesn't suit them, it is unlikely to work. However, you can learn how to fix "This application cannot run on my computer".



    Genshin Impact is slow on PC

    This is caused by variations ranging from many aspects of the game, from your computer's software to the hardware that owns it. This is very important, because in order to play a quiet game it is important that runs smoothly and that there are no drops in FPS, which negatively affect the gameplay.

    The first and foremost reason we can give you for this is that your RAM is much lower than what the game requires to be able to run. This causes the reading of the files that your computer must use to run the game is slow and therefore the whole game slows down.

    Another reason is that your RAM may be enough, but you have too many programs open at the same time that make it difficult for the game to run smoothly and safely.

    If you are playing from a mobile phone, you need to know if your device is good enough advanced to be able to play the game. That's why it's important that you learn to know or check if a game works for me or works on my Android mobile.

    How to fix it quickly and easily

    This, as I told you earlier, is caused by a wide variety of factors. One of the reasons it can also be, in case you are coming from a phone, is that you are overheating. All users should know how to fix when a phone overheats as it is a basic skill for smartphone users.


    In case your game doesn't improve if you fix the overheating issues, you should look for other solutions. One of them is to lower the graphics quality of the game from the settings.

    Also, you have to make sure that you don't have any other applications open on your device, since the presence of these in RAM it can affect the performance of your game. 

    Another solution is to learn how to boost your game's graphics and FPS through other applications, such as GL Tpols. This can be downloaded for free from the Google Playstore and it will not negatively affect the your gaming experience.
