Very curious to see how this plays out. Didn't play much Quake back in the day, but I love the idea of playing it on my ipad. Interested to see how the online multiplayer works.

Downloaded Open Arena receiving a default.cfg load error when opened. Still need to upload my quake III files and try that. Really hoping that will work.

Just followed the instructions on the site and yes it does work. Loaded up the first level. However the x axis is reversed like how wind waker was on gamecube. Y axis is normal (not airplane controls aka inverted).

Edit: also, the joystick is move forward backwards and turn left and right instead of strafe, feels very weird in combination with the reversed x axis.

If you get a default.cfg error the download was somehow incomplete, i recommend to delete and try again.
