Where is that sexy uniform lighting and shadows on mobile? :/

The DIII4A programmer obviously has disabled it for Multiplayer (probably had a slower mobile back then)...

In Singleplayer it runs fully dynamic with shadows and shading, which can be seen here.

So my first feature for a custom MCS based android build (merging the DIII4A portation code) will be to re-enable dynamic shading and shadowing for Multiplayer on Android...

Watched that vid - cool.

FPS on Android == fail. Hard to play because controls are awkward. Best and most successful games use touch/swipe controls and they aren't FPS games ;) Maybe making a game using id Tech 4 on Android is a better idea? Something like point and click adventure or quest.

Idtech4 Android/Windows/Linux True CrossPlatform Multiplayer Footage

Not too long ago you needed a several thousand dollars high performance gaming computer to be able to run this at those quality settings...
And now it runs on my mobile phone with complete CrossPlatform Multiplayer capabilities...

I felt the same way when I ran MP Q2 on our tablet + PC at the same time & ran Carmageddon on the kids tablet.  :)

To breath some life into this stale world of Doom 3.....

Updated the first post in this thread with a link to a new video and CrossPlatform Multiplayer OS Spec details.

Who cares?! Have you heard of VR and Doom 3 BFG VR mod? That's what's in nowadays, not Android or lag-free Doom 3 multiplayer!!!
