    Works like a charm on my Hero. Takes some getting used to but brings back memories.

    Hi, fantastic work. Runs like a dream on my G1.

    Is there anyway you can make it so the trackball acts like a mouse?

    Where is everyone getting the demo of q2 at? I've checked and can't find anywhere to d/l the 37mb q2 demo at for the files needed to rune this apk file.

    Got to be honest, I didn't get the demo. I took the pak file of my original disk.

    Hi, there is a download Tool included in the Android application :

    Launch Quake2 application > press Menu > then Tools > then Download data file

    You can select Id Software FTP or some other mirror as download source

    My only complaint on my Droid is the firing mechanic; I wish up could set up the fire mechanic to be a doubletap on the screen our something. I would life to be able to fire and strafe effectively at the same time. Also, I can't get the spring aim to turn off.When I turn it off, it still autocenters.

    just wondering if we can expect an update anytime soon. I see a few posts re controls and would love to see trackball as mouse look and tilt as WASD strafe movement. ATM the game is not really playable on a keyboardless device.

    keep up the great work :)

    Just thought I'd post this for anyone still having a hard time installing.
    Once you install the apk to your phone you should be able to run it then hit menu then tools, you should see an option to download the files here.
    If this fails you just need to get the pak0.pak file from quake 2, demo or full and put this file in sdcard/baseq2/

    To get the pak file you can install either full or demo quake 2 and copy them from the baseq2 folder.

    I hope this helps anyone still having a hard time installing.

    WOW! Good work!! The controls take some getting used to, but I love that I can play this on my phone! Works great on the moto droid, I had no issues with it at all.

    I installed it on my Moto Droid and the game runs fine, think I saw 45fps, but if I slide my keyboard open/close it exits to desktop.

    It did work if I already had my keyboard open, then opened the app as long as I never slid the keyboard close although it has happened on accident.

    Hi all I'm running q2 on my droid and liking it so far I can't seem to disable the sensor controls and I'm having an issue with the snap back feature. Also I found using the camera/shutter key to work great as the R/fire button but it won't allow me to set that as a key binding. Keep up the good work.

    Please add an option to remap the trackball to mouse, that way a bluetooth mouse would also work as android maps them to emulate a trackball.

    Bluetooth keyboard + mouse would be an awesome setup for this :D

    I checked that page on how to turn of the sensors. It says that you can go to "settings" but I don't see any menu option for that. I don't want title controls, I would just like to use the dpad on my droid.

    Has anyone found a working download site from the list in the app? I have tried a dozen different sites and none will download.

    I guess I can now answer my own question. The answer is no! After spending what seemed like 2-3 hours trying every single link, not one of them works. At this point, what the heck is the download function for as it appears to just plain be broken.

    Guess I'll have to try the manual process.

    Great job on porting this, it runs very smooth on the moto droid. But I am having a huge issue with the controls. I mapped everything to the keyboard and it worked fine except for looking up or down, which I have mapped to p and . . No matter what I can't get anything to work on the keyboard for looking up or down. Anybody have a solution for this?
