Ur-Quan Masters Live Wallpaper for Android 2.x
« on: April 28, 2011, 07:15:50 pm »

If you have an Android phone, and it runs 2.2 or higher, you might be interested in a silly little live wallpaper app I cooked up; it turns the background on your phone into the comms screens from The Ur-Quan Masters:

http://www.submedia.net/uqm/wallpaper.php

It uses the content packs from the game, which must be downloaded separately due to copyright restrictions.  The base.zip from UQM/Android has also been observed working in the wild, so you can use that if you have it.  The Settings page walks you through downloading the content, though, if you're worried.

I am also actively soliciting translations for the (small) amount of user-facing text in the app.  Android almost makes it harder to not do i18n, so there's little reason for English-speakers to have all the fun.  Wink

If you'd like to help, contact info is at the page above.
