Just another Gizmondo post, sorry . Anyways, a user by the name of "Xchip" ported the popular Id software FPS, Quake to the Gizmondo. The framerate is poor but playable. It's not likely that anymore releases are coming, but if they do, I'll keep you posted. The only instructions are to plop the *.zip file's contents onto an sd, and put your trial or commercial wads into the corresponding directory (see readme).
I just took Pocket Quake from http://quake.pocketmatrix.com/ and I ported it to the gizmondo.
It uses software to rasterize and it is a bit slow, but it's still playable, I played the first 3 levels and all went ok
The executable and the gxx.dll NEED TO BE SIGNED, they wont work as they are.
Unfortunately I'm not allowed to release signed stuff, so somebody else will have to do it :-) any voluntaries?
==How to make it work:
1) look for somebody to sign the gxx.dll and the autorun.exe.
2) copy the contents to you sd card's root directory respecting the directory structure of the zip file.
3) get a pak0.pak.gz, you can find one in here: http://quake.pocketmatrix.com/pak0.pak.zip and copy it into /quake/ID1/
4) then put the sd card in your gizmondo and when its ask you whether to run the contents of the sd card say yes
The gizmondo port wouldn't have been possible without the previous work from the Pocket Quake guys
