Hi All,

Another question for the community.  Smiley  I like OpenArena on Android very much, and it doesn't crash with my custom Q3A maps, like QIII4A does.  However, regarding the touchscreen control scheme, is there a way to disable the "double-tap D-pad to jump" function?  I always find myself jumping when I don't want to.  Also, how about the "automatically rotate 180 degrees if you turn fast" function?  Again, I find myself doing that when I don't want to.

To delve further, is there a configuration file that I can edit to make the game physics more like Q3A?

Thanks for any and all suggestions!

What do you mean "to make the physics more like q3a"?

Maybe setting 125hz physics instead of accurate physics... or setting timescale 1 to have the standard game speed (hard with touchscreen controls).

Although using the console in the android port isn't exactly comfortable.... iirc pelya put a sort of speed slider to set timescale in the GUI...

The only  advice i can give is with regards to the 180 thing;when it starts to move one dorection, swipe the other way immediately. I dont exactly know how to explain it, but you'll  ge used to it eventually. Its actually even made playing Open Arena on android easier having that feature since i can kinda automatically pan and stop the screen by swiping hard opposite when i see a someone to frag.

Then again i've only ever done this against bots, and mot against nightmare or any difficulty of that bracket ^_^;

All good ideas.  The suggestions to speed up the game worked.  Thanks.  As far as swiping, I actually found an option in the menu which allows you to disable the swipe 180 degrees feature.  Now the only thing I still need is the option to disable jump on double-tapping the D-Pad.  I couldn't find an option for that. Perhaps there's a config file I can manually edit to accomplish this?  Thanks again.

To disable joystick jump, open chat box during the game (top-left button), and enter this:

Code:
/set j_androidJoystickJumpTime 0

I'll add this to settings menu in the next update. If there ever will be an update, because I'm lazy.
