Nope it's not coming. They saw your post and realized you had em' red handed.

My friend said to me, "I think the weather's trippy." I said, "No, man, it's not the weather that's trippy, perhaps it is the way that we perceive it that is indeed trippy." Then I thought, "Man, I should've just said, 'Yeah."CS.one R3DC3ll Faction-Join us or die...proud member of TheBeastlyNinja Epic-uber elite comedy crew

Those lying BASTARDS! Carmack was just on here a little while back asking about controls for DC. It'll be out when it's ready.

Yeah the fact that John (supposedly) posted, asking about feedback from wolf's controls, shows that they're aiming to put out a flawless doom game. Just hang in there bud it's coming.

Obviously. id are taking a move most developers don't- adding that essential layer of polish.

I think the point, was to show the care and effort going into it. Not to mention about a month ago John (again supposedly) posted to get feedback on preferred controls.

Anyone with a dev licence can compile and install the unofficial doom: http://code.google.com/p/iphonedoom/
The controls are terrible, but it's playable.. ;-)

In all honesty though, I still can't fathom that the "controls" are the holdup. The controls work just fine in Wolf3d and in doom they would be the same because you still can't jump or look up & down, so they would be the same.

Something else is holding it up, but we really have no choice but to wait. I'm going to get it anyway, and my waning interest in it will quickly go right back up when I see that it is released, I hope.
