Android Port of NMRiH

28 posts in this topic

So, I thought today as I was streaming NMRiH to my tablet, "Huh. This game looks great on here. But... What if I made it to support Android?" So, I came on here to ask if it was fine to make a FREE port? And, even if I did, I would have to think about RAM, and video Cards, and things like that. So, I would make the options to change the details, like in the PC edition.

My question is, Could I make the port?

Thanks for reading.

Update: Because of issues with UDK not working with me, I have switched over to Unity.

First person shooters on phones are incredibly frustrating and annoying. No more room in hell would also need to have some serious graphical changes for it to run smoothly on the phone device. Source engine runs poorly on PC's at the best of times.

I know, it is quite annoying at moment, but I would add support for controllers, and such. The engine I am going to use is the Unreal Engine, and tthe graphics will stay the same, with, hopefully, little lag.

Thanks.

Yes. The phones will run it through extracting an APK(Sorry, no iOS.) and installing it onto my tablet for the test, not a phone.

Well, why skeptical?

It might be my lack of experience with the medium, but I have a hard time picturing any mobile device running NMRiH. That, and I don't know you. I cannot gleam from your 5 posts the potential quality of your output. I do not doubt it is possible, anything's possible, I am just skeptical.

However, I'd love to see you prove that skepticism invalid.

Also as a person who knows udk well, I can only fathom how much work it would take. To the point where you might as well make your own zombie game.

Still obviously as been stated, I would be happy to actually see it happen, I just don't expect it.

Got it, I will prove the skepticism invalid.

I for one look forward to your efforts - my eyesight is not bad enough, and I look forward into squinting into my 7" nexus to blast zombies.

Yes as you need UDK to access the engine.

Point is i know it's not a drag and drop thing so it will require a metric ton of work. I'm not against you here, just being realistic.

Do you have any reference projects, something to show?

I do not think that you'll manage to pull this one off at all, its too much.

So pls post some work of yours, or nobody will believe you!

Just waste 200$ on a laggy Tablet for a game that doesn't have touch support? Not so easy to make the decision.

No, I do not. I recently got my new Desktop, upgrading from a low-end Laptop.

Nothing is not impossible!

I do not have any work. Have people not believe me, I have faith in myself.

I know. I have it.

It is somewhat Hell trying to model everything, especially from scratch. It is Tons of work, but maybe this will work!

Thank you! But, you shall not be squinting, if you meant model detail.

no thanks.

Previously stated above, the game does not have touch support, and I won't spend 200$ on a laggy Tablet.

If you're going to go through all that shit to port it to Android, why not just make your own game?

I will not take credit of a game that is currently in hands of different developers. That, is just rude!
