This one looks great ! Any idea if it's also working on HTC Desire?

I wonder if the optic "trackball" of the Desire is working as great as the N1 one, because on the video, it looks really playable

See you.

Zepiii.

Hello,

By example, for me, on HTC Dream, I have installed Quake 1 and Quake 2, they runs perfectly !
You can build from the source code :
Quake 1 : code.google.com/p/glesquake/
Quake 2 : sites.google.com/site/quake2android/

The source code for Quake 1 has been part of the Android source tree since the 1.0 days, and it's always compiled by default in the build. (But it's never installed by default.) So anyone with an Android build environment already has it on their system. I've attached the one I compiled recently, here. Rename the file to "Quake.apk" and install it using your file manager, adb, or whatever. You'll have to supply the data files yourself of course.

I've also supplied the config file from the source tree. Rename it to "config.cfg".
It goes into /sdcard/data/quake/id1 on your SDcard. That's also where you have to copy the pak file. I just tested this with the pak file from the Quake 1 demo.

You just need to use lha to extract the data files. E.g. see these directions http://tldp.org/HOWTO/Quake-HOWTO-2.html

I just tried your attached files on my Galaxy S2 - installing works fine but when I try to run it crashes immediately.

Quake 1-Recover APK from old Xperia Play?
I recently replaced my xperia play with another xperia play cuz I love it so much. I had Quake 1 installed on the old phone purchased from the play store back in 2011. The developer was Jack Niu (published his source code) and per my request he was able to release a version on 1-15-12 that made the touch icons disappear so I could play on my Xperia Play (with controls) and no touch screen icons blocking my view.

I still have all the pak files on my SD card for the game, however, the game has been removed from the play store and I cannot re-install. The only file I was able to recover was the "tk.niuzb.quake.asec" file from when I copied the SD card.

Does anyone know how to get this back to the apk file that I originally paid for and installed on my old phone? or is anyone willing to share apk that would allow me to play this without touch screen icons?

Taken one step further, I would be willing to make a substantial paypal donation for any developer willing to make this happen?

All I really want to do is be able to play Quake 1 on my Xperia Play without those annoying touch screen icons.

Thanks ahead for reading and hope someone can help me out.
