ohhhh yes !!! based on the q3ce-1.1-release-armv4-ppc2003.zip, i proudly present:

Quake III Arena 1.1a, running in accelerated 3D on the HTC Touch Diamond

ok, so we got from 4 up to 19 fps, it's not that bad eheh :D

1- download this --> http://web.archive.org/web/20060321...load_files/q3ce-1.1-release-armv4-ppc2003.zip (it's no warez, just the free q3ce binaries) and extrack to some folder wherever u want in the diamond. Use Windows Compressed Files, and NOT 7zip, i repeat, do *NOT* use 7zip because it doesn't work.
2- inside the folder created in step 1, put the pakconvert'ed files inside the BASEQ3 folder. OR search the interwebby's for the pakconvert'ed files for ppc.
3- delete libgles_cm.dll and GX.DLL from the folder created in step 1 (you can choose to ignore this step if you're using a custom ROM)
4- disable touchflo3d
5- run the bastard (!)


thanks go to the following threads and ppl posting there:

btw don't let the sshots fool you, when you play this live you'll see the quality of all textures and light effects!! amazing for such a small phone, tbh!!

its 7:11 in the morning after a night with no sleep trying this, so controls and key mapping is for another time. nn \o/

Quake III Arena 1.1a, running in accelerated 3D on the HTC Touch Diamond

ok, so from 4 to 12 fps, it's not that bad eheh :D

1- create a folder named whatever, wherever
2- inside the folder created in step 1, put the pakconvert'ed files inside a BASEQ3 folder. OR search the interwebby's for the pakconvert'ed files for ppc.
3- download the attachment below (Q3CE.zip -> Q3CE.EXE) and copy it to the folder created in step 1
2- delete (if exists) libgles_cm.dll and GX.DLL from the folder created in step 1
5- disable touchflo3d
6- run the bastard (!)

Errr... according to that screenshot you are getting about 5fps (which sounds about right given than the Diamond is more useless for 3d gaming than a OMAP 233).

It's not worth playing a game at 5fps - what a shame that the Diamond\TP is not up to 3d stuff.
