raspberry pi & other arm?
new cheap "computers"

Anyone think it's worth a shot to try a port of UrT? I know it's way more resource heavy and more than just a recompile. The 256MB shared between the cpu and gpu is possibly the killer part (texture packs, etc).
On another note, I recently received a mele a1000 (cortex a8, mali 400 512MB). No reason this shouldn't be able to run UrT when the GPU drivers are further along.
Just curious about any comments, etc.

No its not, but your post is only pointless.
For that reason:
I love to review demos from Q3 and I would like to review demos from UrbanTerror on phone as well, when I'm in bed or car or even with friends drinking beer I love to watch with them!
So, only for your grandma that is pointless...
And for Emo kids too, cause UrbanTerror has no emotional music inside...

I regularly run my Pi on a 1080p 22 inch monitor with keyboard, mouse and ethernet. What about that is any more difficult to play on than the exact same setup with my x86_64 desktop? The ODROID-X can run Ubuntu and Fedora and UrT runs on those (in the x86 versions).
There are powerful little ARM boxes coming down the pipe and I for one would love to play UrbanTerror on them. The performance is there, the interface is there, the only thing that is missing is an AMR UrT binary. What about the Ouya Android console? Are we going to pass up that market too? If the developers don't want to put in the time to support ARM, then fine, we'll go play Open Source or ARM compiled games on our non-x86 computers. But anyone saying it is pointless should read the news.

See http://www.urbanterr...nt/page__st__10 , similar situation.
Ouya doesn't have support for a mouse and a keyboard, does it?
And if you want to play UrT without those two you kinda missed what the game is about.

I agree that the Ouya is probably not an appropriate development target for UrT, but, as you correctly pointed out, because you would perhaps be eaten alive if using a controller (we won't get into OpenGL [ES]). Not because "ewww, things that are different are scary."
