QII4A (source port of quake 2)


*** This is the first and original port of Yamagi Quake 2 to Android, while commercial forks are NOT, don't pay for a free GPL product ***

The original author of this app is not me (I'm just a publisher, description is written by him). Legal information is available in the end of description.

QII4A is a port of YQuake2 to Android. It is based on GPL source code. Note that THIS APP DOESN'T CONTAIN OR DOWNLOAD ANY OF QUAKE 2 DATA FILES, you need to copy "baseq2" folder from Quake 2 game (patched to the latest version, for example you can buy it on Steam: http://store.steampowered.com/app/2320/ ) to the folder specified in QII4A launcher (create that folder manually, example of correct path to "baseq2" folder: "/sdcard/qii4a/baseq2" with "/sdcard/qii4a" directory in launcher).

Controls features:
- 10-finger multitouch =)
- Move and resize all controls.
- Hide controls and add more, you can configure opacity for any control.
- Analog movement joystick
- Full mouse support! (with root rights only). This is the only port that supports mouse (at the moment).
- Gamepad and keyboard support just as on your PC: you can rebind buttons in-game or in console for advanced tuning.

Graphics features:
- Configure resolution and color depth by yourself. You can even set 100x100 resolution: all resolutions are supported (except negative values =)).
- Set MSAA for best graphics.

Known issues:
1) Slow on some old devices.

This app is a Quake 2 source port, GPL source code is included in APK. It is placed in APK\assets\source\. This project doesn't use any code from "Quake 2 Touch" (and other Beloko's and monica john's "ports").
QII4A stands for "Quality Impressive Incredible game engine FOR All.". All included icons/images were painted by me and are protected by copyright.
Quake 2 is a registered trademark of id Software. Android is a trademark of Google Inc. All trademarks are used under the terms of Fair Use: usage is nominative.
If you think that there are copyright issues in QII4A, lay down and cry.
Any attempt to remove this app by DMCA notice without contacting me directly first will be really unfair, FSF and community will be notified immediately.

Recent changes:
Added ACCESS_SUPERUSER permission because some authors of Superuser apps think that it is clever to ask root permissions twice (but I think that it is the most stupid idea I've ever heard).
Replaced one-time donate notification with bottom offline ad: 4 (for each port) one-time notifications are quite annoying.
A bit more friendly to users that don't read the description.
Updated engine and GCC used to build it.

Absolutely Amazing I was surprised at the quality of this and the fact that there was no lag... even at the highest settings.

Almost perfect This port is very good. You can play at insane resolutions, and even play online. It runs at full speed on my Nvidia Shield. However, there's some issues preventing a 5th star for me. The triggers can't be mapped nor can the dpad(it's a no-brainer that an FPS needs these). Without these you can't have everything binded. You can remove the touchscreen buttons, but you need the touch joystick on screen to browse the menus. This is present on all ports by this developer. It works and works well though.

Need help I don't have an sd card (internal memory) and when I try to launch the game it still says files not found. Baseq2 folder is in internal storage/qii4a with all game files and it won't launch. Help? I have an LG G2.

Dreams came true Almost 10 years ago I dreamt about being able to play games like this one on my PDA. Now it's finally possible. Graphics's great, performance's fine (1ghz single-core processor and mali-400 run it perfectly). The only problem is controls. Nothing can substitute the good old mouse-and-keyboard. That basically applies to all shooters. Definitely recommended to owners of a PC version of q2 who would like to look at this game from a new angle.
