Chex Quest on Kindle Fire (1st gen)

(1/2) > >>

ChelonianEgghead:
I have a 1st gen Kindle Fire, but am having trouble finding a good source port that supports Android 2.3.4 and doesn't just crash on startup. Any thoughts?

Awesomedude249:
The only mobile device I had a couple years ago was a 1st gen kindle fire, and this time was also when I was very active on the forums and with CQ in general, so I attempted this exact thing a couple times and could never get it to work, because I don't think there are any good working doom sourceports for the kindle fire (especially not on the built-in OS's app store.) Either way, you could probably just get a cheap android tablet that can run one of the many modern doom sourceports for android and use that instead.

ChelonianEgghead:
My brother has the Android SDK on his PC, so over my next break I could try and compile GZDoom for the Kindle and post the APK if it works. I don't really want to install it on mine because it's rather old.

Awesomedude249:
IDK if it'll work on a 1st gen kindle fire, but GZDooM for android does exist:

ChelonianEgghead:
Perhaps ZDoom would be better. I guess I'll find out this Easter.
