Release-Commentary

Requirements

A decent phone or tablet is needed. We can't say much about where the borders are, since we didn't test on many devices yet. So far I can report if working fine on those devices:

  • Sony Xperia Z5
  • Samsung Galaxy S7

Feel free to add to the list.

Download & Installation

APK-Download

You can find download links to a development-preview of the app inside the main README.md of the repository. Just download it with your phone/tablet and install it.

You will need to enable APK-installation from unknown sources!

Gamedata-Download

Since REGoth is a reimplementation of the engine only, you will need some original gamedata to get the app running. To make this process easier, the app is able to download a demo of the game from the internet.

While the default location (worldofgothic) is known to be a working installer, you can try to put an other URL there. Be aware that not all installer formats can be extracted! (The original ones should work, those which play music an show pictures)

Just press the Download-button shown after you started the app. Let the download finish and press the Extract-Button. After that finished you may start the game.

If something goes wrong, you can delete the /REGoth-folder created on your devices storage and try again.

Using your own gamedata

If you want to use a full version of the game, you will need to copy the games files to your device manually.
Simply grab everything inside your games installation-directory and move it to /REGoth/Gothic on your device (case sensitive!).

You would end up with a structure like /REGoth/Gothic/System/... and /REGoth/Gothic/Data/...

Controls

Since this is a very early build the controls are not very nice, but they do the job for now:

+----------------------+----------------------+
|                      |                      |
|                      |                      |
|     Action           |       Escape         |
|                      |                      |
|                      |                      |
|                      |                      |
+----------------------+----------------------|
|                      |                      |
|                      |                      |
|          /\          |                      |
|  Move  <    >        |     Turn  <  >       |
|          \/          |                      |
|                      |                      |
+----------------------+----------------------+

This is also how you use the menus, don't try tapping on things!

Known Issues

  • You cannot switch apps. The game will crash if you do!
  • While sound works, changing the volume ingame does not. (at least on my phone. It crashes!) Make sure to put it to a decent volume before starting the game.
  • There might be floating heads, if your gpu isn't capable of high numbers of uniforms per shader
  • There is no button to draw your weapon
  • Text can be very small
  • It gets very slow in areas with a lot of stuff, like the Old-Camp. The rendering-engine is still pretty rough and un-optimized.
  • No console available!

Uninstalling

The App uses a folder (called REGoth) inside your devices storage to keep the gamedata, config and savegames. To remove the app completely from your device, you should also remove that folder.

This is still a very early build! Things may not work or go slow.
