I am here shed some light on Android Port of this game to those are keen to know more about its origin how it started and explain a bit more about control sheme to those who are still not familiar with it or looking for such explaination.

It has been year of 2018 almost the end of it. I found out that SDL has added support for Android Devices and in my head "An Idea has started to show up" to start porting / adding support for ET Legacy for Android. I had basic support for Android in 2019 nothing fancy just run a game and connect to a server thats all I had in a back, more of the stuff has been added for getting the experience better for players up to Official Support for Android with 2.78 ET: Legacy.
Latest Release of Android Version of game gives you all you need to get you on the server with minimal input as possible for user side so to speak it does download required files to your Phone Internal Storage. For Android Systems is is usually 'PhoneInternalStorage/Android/data/org.etlegacy.com' and all your cfgs/etkey You can also upload those required pak's by yourself to your Phone Internal Storage to: 'PhoneInternalStorage/Android/data/org.etlegacy.com` may vary depends on Android versions.

That's good but do you plan to support other mods? (nitmod, jaymod etc)
KUDA unfortunatelly its up to the mod devs to add support for Android. How can I add support for Nitmod if I do not have even source code for that ?
Well I think this is an amazing direction to go. I keep track on the Playstation Vita community for homebrew. It looks like there is interest to bring ET: Legacy to PS Vita. https://github.com/vita-nuova/bounties/issues/34 Would be pretty amazing if all of you could make it happen.
