Stunts on Android
« on: August 25, 2013, 07:54:31 PM »
Duplode told me to feel free to start a new topic.

So we know that DOS can be emulated pretty well on Linux-based operating systems...

...we also know that Android uses the Linux kernel for its core systems...

..and there is also the fact that today's smartphones/tablets are almost, or already on par in their technical specs with few years old desktop computers.

The question is obvious: has anyone ever tried or managed to run Stunts on an Android device?

I suppose DosBox or an equivalent will exist, but touch controls are going to be horrible.

Touchscreen is my enemy. However, it could be fun on a classic mobile phone.

Looking at someone playing on one of those things in the bus made me realize there is a way of mapping Stunts controls to a cellphone touch screen which is not absurd - though it would destroy our thumbs pretty fast! The swipe controls would be used for shifting.

I just tried it with aDOSBox (under Android 4.1.2. OS) You can start the game, choose a car and a track, but it bumps into an error when you try to start driving (check disk).

aDOSBox is too sensitive, it will be frozen when you try to push two buttons at the same time. However, you have buttons for every 45°...
