    I managed to use the controller map I used from my post about controllers from pirates online along with steam link on mobile to get the get game functioning on a phone. Now, I could have made it fully wireless with a bluetooth controller, but I do not own one of those, so I was tethered to my computer. If you are able to do this with a bluetooth controller, you could technically go mobile (as long as you are connected with your wireless network)

    This is awesome, and IMO exactly the type of content this forum needs. I'm so happy people are still being inventive with this game.

    There was a thread about this a few months ago where I gave reasons as to why TLOPO on a phone isn't totally feasible (yet). Nonetheless I'm surprised how responsive the game is on a phone. Your way is about the same as how VR works, you have the processing happening on a computer but the visuals/controls are wired back to the computer. What would be really cool is if you put this in a VR headset for your phone and ran the game splitscreen. All we need now is a first person FPSCamera.

    TLOPO on mobile would be great, because i recently moved to somewhere really rural and all we can get is a sattelite internet plan that has limited internet so i cant really play online, but i have unlimited data with this plan so i could play on my tablet all i wanted. Its a great idea and its possible but it will take time and effort lots of it.
