RTCW4A


*** This is the first and original port of RTCW to Android entirely done by n0n3m4, 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.

RTCW4A is a source port of Return to Castle Wolfenstein game engine to Android (Single-player only!). It is based on GPL source code release with some usage of kwaak3 source code. Note that THIS APP DOESN'T CONTAIN OR DOWNLOAD ANY OF RETURN TO CASTLE WOLFENSTEIN DATA FILES, you need to copy "main" folder from Return to Castle Wolfenstein game (patched to the latest version, for example you can buy it on Steam: http://store.steampowered.com/app/9010/ ) to the folder specified in RTCW4A launcher (create that folder manually, example of correct path to "main" folder: "/sdcard/rtcw4a/Main" with "/sdcard/rtcw4a" 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) Crashes on some Android 4.2 devices for no reason. Probably an Android NDK bug.
2) Works badly (or crashes) on some Mali-400 devices, mostly Rockchip and Telechip ones.

GPL source code is included in APK. It is placed in APK\assets\source\. This project doesn't use any code from "RTCW Touch" (and other Beloko's and monica john's "ports").
RTCW4A stands for "Real-Time Cool War game FOR All". All included icons/images were painted by me and are protected by copyright.
Return to Castle Wolfenstein is a registered trademark of id Software. Android is a trademark of Google Inc. All trademarks are used under the terms of Fair Use.
If you think that there are copyright issues in RTCW4A, 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 GCC used to build this app.

How to press enter How am I suppossed to start playing If the only onscreen button working is the joystick? There is no way for me in Oneplus One to press the "Play" button. I was able to do it with the on screen keyboard "Enter" but once it loads I cant start playing because buttons dont respond!

Kitkat help Get hunkusage.dat error when running game files from sd card under kitkat. Guess it's the permission issues.Any way of separating storage of pk files from writable space on internal mem? I have not got a spare gig on my phone internal memory...

Overall good. RTCW4A ports Return to Castle Wolfenstein. Controls are simple to use, customizable to any user's liking. The one problem is somewhat poor optimization. Aside from that, flawless app. 9/10, would buy.

Brilliant! Easy to set up and get working. Make sure you install and run your PC version on a PC to get the full folder structure then just copy the entire Main folder. Worked first time. No need to root. Ideally use with a keyboard but works fine without. I'm getting better graphics on my nexus than I did on the PC I used to use with the original game. Brilliant.
