It looks cool but is totally unplayable. The controls are horrible. You can't play quake decently with tilt controls.

    Won't do any good. The files are there. They are built in to the level packs (pk3 files). Rename them .zip and you will see.

    Me thinks that a BT mouse and keyboard could work.

    Very true about some of the effects missing. For one the animated lighting effects on the jump pads I noticed almost immediatley. Regardless this is an incredibly awesome proof of concept. With bt mouse/keyboard support this would be very playable. I for one drool at the prospect of blasting some high precision railgun shots on q3dm17 multiplayer from my ipad! Practical? No. Awesomely geeky? Yea.

    It was not difficult at all. Install the app, SSH to upload the games, and launch.

    It's possible.

    But, the scripts and configuration needs to be modified to use Bluetooth.
    Asking for help is different from being stupid. Fanboys can rot in @#$%!
