ok so if android is based on linux and Jagged Alliance 2 is capable of running on linux how hard would it be to compile Jagged Alliance 2 to run on android?

I don't think that kind of mobile hardware that uses Android would be able to run JA2 Surprised

xperia x10
480 x 854 screen
1 GB storage
384 MB RAM
Snapdragon 1 GHz processor

now i am well aware that the actual clock frequancy of a cpu does not dictate its proformance, but i used to run jagged alliance 2 on a P2 333 cpu with 128MB RAM with out issue, i think the x10 could run it.

but is it posable get it to run it on android.

i know it would need to be an x86 cpu but wondering if the source code is available can it be ported.

biggest problem is the screen size

This is a really great question, I hope we can get a definitive answer. I just thought of something though: wouldn't it be pretty tough without all of the hotkeys? Or could you map them all to phone buttons? Another dumb question: what do you use a "mouse" for game like that? I've never played a "real" game on a phone.

well it is a touch screen so that would take care of the mouse and as for hot keys, there really isnt anything you can do with keys that you cant do with your mouse but if need be, as the screen is 16:9 and the game is 4:3 there would be black bars on the side that some good programer could use for key commands i would assume

Should be possible with a few tweaks. Try the stracciatella version.

Now this I want to see. Best of luck to anyone that tries to compile it for Android.

Even better would be porting of savegames and 1.13 compatibility.

Since this thread pops up when searching google for a JA2 android version, I'd like to lead potential visitors to this thread: http://www.ja-galaxy-forum.com/board/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=273148#Post273148
There you can find the current JA2 stracc port.
