TUTORIAL: Play Android HD Games with Chainfire 3D
Play Android HD Games with Chainfire 3D on Galaxy Y

This is really helpful if you want to play so called "incompatible" games for the phone. Games such as Avatar HD, Gangstar West Coast Hustle, Brothers in Arms 2, etc..

For installation the application please following instruction below
1. Install Chainfire3D to your Galaxy Y
2. Unzip the archive in the SD card
3. Open Chainfire 3D and click on 'Install Plugin'
4. The app will search for the plugins in the phone and prompt about them on the screen
5. Install all the plugins namely - libGLEMU_NVIDIA, libGLEMU_POWERVR and libGLEMU_QUALCOM

video tutorial:

But that is not all. Now to configure it a bit. Run Chainfire 3D and go to Default OpenGL Settings and tick the box Reduce texture quality and Reduce texture size. Go to Use plugin and select QUALCOMM.
After that, these settings are saved and from now on all you have to do is start Chainfire 3D, minimize it by pressing the home button and start the HD game you've been dreaming for.

Another thing before we are done:
Due to installing Chainfire 3D and enabling those 2 options about texture reducing, it is possible that your Gallery will be messed up and some games too, for now I have only noticed Angry Birds, Angry Birds Seasons, Angry Birds Rio. To solve that problem simply start Chainfire 3D and un-tick those 2 options that are for reducing quality. After you are done exit the program and try your game again, it should work, in-case it doesn't, try a reboot of the phone.

HD games are originally unplayable on Samsung Glaxy Y due to its low GPU capability. But by using CF3D, playing HD is now not a dream anymore. Here are some of the HD games that run smooth on a Samsung Galaxy Y:
  • Avatar
  • Brother in Arms 2
  • Dead Space
  • Dungeon Hunter
  • FIFA10
  • Gangstar West Coast Hustle
  • GT Racing
  • Hero of Sparta
  • NFS Shift
  • NOVA
  • PES 2012
  • HAWX
  • Modern Combat
  • and many more.
