I saw this on slashdot today and it works wonderfully on the Mini.

http://www.bytonic.de/html/jake2_webstart.html

These guys took the Quake 2 game source code and compiled it completely in Java. No need to install. Takes a while to load initially but once loaded it runs fast and fullscreen (1280x1024 in my case) perfectly. I had iTiunes going in the background playing some Miles Davis while I shot the hell out of some goons : )

I couldn't get the multiplayer to work though. Anyone figure out how to get that working? I couldn't get a list of servers.

I thought it was cool how it was all java based but I did not really like the game. I guess it just seems lame compared to games today. It may be fun to get some multiplayer matches going though. So I am up for that.

Perhaps there is nobody running a server. One of us should make a game and see if the others can connect to them.

I created an MP game called 'macminirulz', and I'm going to leave it open for a while to see if anyone else can see/join it. AIM me if you do (or if you don't!), my screen name is 'cinemafia'.

Well, nevermind...I guess the multiplayer part doesn't actually work yet. Smile
