    Diablo 3 on iPhone

    Diablo 3 FULLY PLAYABLE and portable on smartphone!


    So I finally got around to making this, diablo 3 fully playable on the iPhone, or any smartphone that can run Splashtop remote. This works anywhere as long as you have internet connection on your phone. (boss fight at 6:14)



    If people want a full tutorial, I'll be happy to make one.

    That looks pretty interesting! I would give it a go, but I like my screens big lol
    I cried alone every single night. It felt like every day that passed here stole another piece of my real life away. After i cried, I’d go and fight as hard as I could. My only thought was winning, moving forward, and getting stronger. — Asuna Yuuki

    Oh, I forgot to say that this works on the iPad as well as iPhone, but I personally wouldn't bring a big iPad with me to work xD

    Dedication level: OVERKILL. Nice job! I can't imagine it would be super efficient though. :P

    That's impressive, I wish I had a smartphone capable of running even most basic 3d graphics. My HTC Wildfire won't even run angry birds at more than 10 fps.

    Edit: nevermind, it's streamed from the PC right? Never heard of this app before.

    All that it does its streaming Diablo3 from a actual PC, almost any game can be played like that

    WoW was run this way over a couple years ago. All this is, is just a remote desktop app. The PC at home is still the one running the actual game-client. All this app is doing is taking what is on the screen of the home computer and relaying it to the smartphone.

    Good way to boost your effective latency though, since now you got 2 internet connections worth of communication going on from input to output.

    Smartphone > PC > Blizzard > PC > Smartphone > Repeat as needed

    I wouldn't call this "fully playable" since the game itself is not running from your mobile device. Not to say that mobile phones couldn't run it, but that the software isn't compatible with the operating systems that mobile phones currently use.
    Games are not necessarily "easier" today. You are just a better player.
    It takes more now to impress many gamers than it did 2-5 years ago, because so much has already been seen and done.
    Many players expect to be wow'd with every release of a beloved franchise.
    These are generally NOT the fault of the developers, but the fault of many players over-hyping and/or setting expectations too high.

    Indeed. The clever part is really from the software side of things, but it becomes less of a challenge to get smooth gameplay when you're running it over the LAN/local wifi, and when it's literally just 3 streams (video, audio, control), 2 of which can be accelerated by the hardware in the phone/tablet and the other which doesn't need it.

    Still, it's a great concept and incidentally it's something that the big companies are wanting to do (NVIDIA Shield and NVIDIA GRID are both examples of it, though GRID is more extravagant and relies on server-level hardware). The actual implementation of it wouldn't be that difficult but it's still an amazingly useful project to create. Once you get it down once, there's very little you need to change to be able to stream anything.

    I think the most difficult part would be building a realtime video encoder that's efficient enough to stream in realtime and good enough to scale the image down without losing too much quality (the guys who make XSplit provide a free driver to help with this). Streaming keystrokes/button presses isn't that difficult as you can literally send them as chars or strings which results in very little overheads and thus performance is fairly good.

    Haha, this video reminded me of the times where I just started with WoW, and saw some fake youtube videos where they showed how they played WoW on their iPhones. I haven't have one of those and was such a noob that thought those videos were real :P

    Fully playable as in I can fully play the game in all of its aspects, on my phone.
