Why isn't BlueStacks recognized by BotSauce?
If your BlueStacks instance is not recognized by BotSauce, try the following troubleshooting steps.
Common Problem 1
In BotSauce, make sure to enable "Show USB & Other Devices" on top
Common Problem 2
Make sure "ADB" is enabled on your BlueStacks instance. Open Settings, and then go to Preferences. Make sure to select "Enable Android Debug Bridge (ADB)".
Common Problem 3
Make sure that your BlueStacks instance is using "Nougat 32-bit". If you are not sure what Android version you are using, open BlueStacks multi-instance manager. You can see the Android version for every instance listed like below.
If your instance is not using Nougat 32-bit, create a fresh instance, and make sure to select "Nougat 32-bit" as the Android version.
Common Problem 4
If the above steps were already correct, and did not resolve your issue then try the following:
- Restart BlueStacks and wait for it to completely load
- Open the game that you want to bot in BlueStacks
- Restart BotSauce
- Give it a minute to detect your BlueStacks instance. BlueStacks specifically is a little slow to broadcast itself and become discoverable.
