    So the devs have put Android aside for now and are working on getting Linux running instead?

    Afaik getting all the needed components to run as intended on linux will make the android port much easier and straightforward.

    EDIT : Much easier to port, is what I meant.

    You are obviously clueless as to what goes into a project like this.

    The soon™ is a running joke on this site. It may have started earlier than this but I remember it being prolific during the time of hykem and WiiU

    It’s a WIP, they may get it perfect but not make an public realise...
    I’m not doing it and know there’s no ETA, it’s prolific with no ETA in any scene pmsl, if they realise then be happy!
