    No luck on the Nexus One. It starts, but the ammo and health do not correctly display there is a yellow line accross left side of the screen. If it hit the track ball to start the game it locks up for a about 5 minutes and then the game will start, but it is over responsive. Debug log on the way let me know if it has what you need.

    I also tried with and without eco

    it works great but my only complaint is that when you are aiming with the touchscreen, the movement sensors "re-adjust" so that how ever you were holding the phone is now "zero" in other words this position is now the no movement position.
    This can get annoying very often.

    Fantastic work! I'm getting about 5-15fps on my Hero.

    Nevermind, found it. I am running it on Droid 2.01 but I am getting about 5fps when there are enemies on screen, ~25 without. Also, it seems to quit to desktop a lot. For example when I slide the keyboard out or press back while in options it will quit to desktop.

    I really want to like this but wtf. What are the controls? The character just runs forward and doesn't do anything. If I click menu and tap 'keyboard' nothing happens.

    I tried this on my droid, it was unplayable. Graphics are bad, when ever you shoot/see an explosion it slows to 5fps. This is without eco mode too...

    The game is not playable on Tattoo (frame rate too low) but I'm impressed anyway.

    Being myself an embedded programmer, but very new to Android, I was wondering how you managed to port original source code (I assume is in C/C++) to Java...

    Be careful Julien, I've read on a forum that "Id Software" was looking at all "Doom/Quake" softwares on Android Market to forbid them. :(

    Just tried the 1.7 APK, solves my previous issues and now works perfectly on my Droid. Seeing good framerates and it's entirely playable. Steering an FPS with an accelerometer will take some getting used to. Only played through the first half of first level so far.

    I'd still love to get mouse look working. +mlook / -mlook seem to fail, even when bound to a key.

    In any case, very well done, if you have a reasonably powerful phone, try it!

    I know the Tatoo is strangely slow. I believe It should be on the same level as my Galaxy. Can you send me a logcat ? (it is explained in the FAQ)

    I have used Android NDK ( native developpement kit ) .
    To explain briefly : Quake 2 source code is in C, I have wrapped it in a shared library that gets called from a Java GLSurfaceView .

    For precise control of the looking (when you need to shoot an ennemy, for example) the best is to use the touchscreen "view area" (see the FAQ on controls) .

    Just put your left thumb on the screen, move it and you will understand ...

    I can't find Sendlog on the market, do you know where I can find the apk ?

    Thanks, I did not know NDK was existing !

    Looks like the links for the demo are down, or id took them off.
    Anyone by chance have a link for the demo?.....I have the apk file, just need the demo for the files. I've searched and can't find any link available for downloading the demo.

    I just installed this last night and its very impressive work.
    I am playing on a Hero so I have no keyboard.
    I think it would be great to tilt to strafe rather than turn.
    This should give good fps controls for devices with no keyboard. All that would would be needed then would be to fix the slowdown when using the touch screen.

    One other thing I noticed, the trackball works to click but the directions don't work in game, although I can set them in options.

    Keep up the great work, awesome port
