FTEDroid is a port of FTE and is also created by Spike. It's a QuakeWorld, Quake 2, Quake 3 and Hexen 2 client for Android devices.
Screenshot of FTEDroid observing a LIVE game on an Android phone. Looking great!
- supports most games that FTE supports;
- supports modifications (mods) as any other client.
- opens QuakeTV links, so you can observe LIVE games on your Android (refer to http://qtv.quakeworld.nu/ to see which games are going on);
These installations instructions are valid to launch Quake using FTEDroid client for any modern Android device.
- If you haven't done it yet, under Settings, allow non marketplace apps to be installed, or apps from unknown sources;
- Download http://triptohell.info/moodles/android/FTEDroid.apk to your phone;
- Install the .apk
- OPTIONAL: using the phone's file explorer, copy pak1.pak to /id1/ (figure out where it installed, mine was at /Android/data/com.fteqw/files)
You are now ready to launch FTEDroid
- on 1st run, select a AfterQuake package, a small one. Don't select "AfterQuake configs", they're buggy for Android. click Apply, the assets will be downloaded automatically.
Now you can:
Read the following for issues and good-to-know info:
- If the console text size is too small, use the command vid_conautoscale 4.
- If it's too dark, use gl_contrast 1.3 and gl_brightness. gl_gamma doesn't work. you can also use the menu
- If you having issues with the graphics, select a different graphic preset from the menu
- If you change settings, quit FTEDroid via the menu, and select SAVE CHANGES.
- Different areas of the touchscreen are used to different binds.
- the left and right area of the screen to +jump and +fire (mouse1 and mouse2 binds).
- Armor area on the hud opens the console
- Face area on the hud show scores
- Weapons area on the hud, changes weapon (impulses)
- volume keys to increase and decrease volume,
- Use the MENU key to toggle the console, and the on screen keyboard to type on it.
- Use BACK like Escape.
How to spectate QuakeTV streams (live QuakeWorld matches)
- visit http://qtv.quakeworld.nu/ with the phone’s browser;
- click on a ‘watch’ or 'qtv' link;
- It asks which app should open the link. Choose FTEDroid;
FTEDroid should launch and connect to the stream automatically.
It's a normal Quake client. You can run various quake mods (including mission packs) by installing them adjacent to the id1 directory on your sdcard, and then using the 'gamedir' console command to switch between them. switching between games (ie: between quake, quake2, hexen2, quake3) requires the use of the fs_changegame command in order to ensure various default settings get applied to match the different gamecode modes.
You can use different textures, crosshairs, etc. Customize to your liking like any other modern Quake client.
- it crashes when you try to run FteDroid when its already running. you must close it using the "app manager" button on your phone.
- after a match ends, it disconnects from the stream - this is actually a mvdsv server bug.
Discussion on the internet
Quality feedback is needed! If you find FTEDroid useful, please submit! Take screenshots, tell which device you're using and android version. explain the problem step by step. Then report on Discord or open a ticket on Sourceforge. Thanks
you can use FTEDroid with all the games that FTE supports. Here's the folder list where you should put the game files:
- /fte/id1 (Quake 1)
- /fte/hipnotic (mp 1)
- /fte/rogue (mp 2)
- /fte/baseq2 (Quake 2)
- /fte/ctf (multiplayer)
- /fte/xatrix (Q2 mp 1)
- /fte/rogue (Q2 mp 2)
Use fs_changegame to switch between quake+quake2, and gamedir to switch between id1/hipnotic/rogue.
