mobile Muv-Luv on Android/iOS

6 posts in this topic

I've been thinking pretty much since the beginning that Muv-Luv was practically built to be played on a tablet device (such as an iPad or Galaxy Tab, etc.). Originally during the Kickstarter campaign, I backed the Android port, but after many months of silence on its development, I requested that the devs switch me back over to Windows. I still felt that the game would be best experienced on a tablet lounging on the couch or in bed without a bulky laptop in the way.

Today, I was doing a little looking around and I stumbled across an app called Remotr. Basically, it's a local-network game-streaming service that works with Android, iOS and (less interestingly) Windows tablet devices. You can install a server application on your main Windows PC and run the app on the Android or iOS device and stream Muv-Luv directly to the mobile device (including the sound). It's not perfect - the mouse movement is relative to the touchscreen motion rather than exact - but it provides a really nice way to get Muv-Luv off the laptop/desktop and onto a more portable device. (Note: the streaming only works over a local area network or presumably a VPN). Remotr is free with ads or there is a $1.99/month subscription to go without the ads. Thus far, the ads haven't been *too* irritating (they play when the game launches and after it quits), but I've not played for an extended time yet. I'll update this post if it turns out that they interject ads mid-game as well.

I hope this information proves useful to other fans!

The devs agree with you, since the current (steam) version was built to be played on (windows) tablets, with minor modifications to make it works on PC.

Or set up a RDP or VNC service on your PC and remote in using a capable client from any other machine to remote the whole computer.  They make clients for Android that can use this - I remote my work PC (Windows rig) from my Galaxy S6 routinely.

I bought a piece of crap $100 Windows tablet solely to play Muv-Luv and a few other VNs (ef, Clannad, Kindred Spirits on the Roof) that had been gathering dust because I couldn't be bothered to spin up Parallels to play them on my Mac often enough. At that price, you may find it preferable to remote screensharing.

Mostly I was inspired by an episode of the âge livestream where they used a Windows tablet to give the Japanese audience their first look at the English translation (e.g., making Rienee read the "Buhooooobs?" line out loud)

Not bad, not bad at all.  I usually avoid getting new hardware for such a narrow purpose, but that's a good price if you're going that direction.  The main reason I'd advocate remoting is that you can use your existing phone or tablet to do it with - but you've got to be aware of the security risks too.

I have this 8" Winbook, while it is small enough to carry all the time is big enough to read comfortably, you can install Win32 Software (Like Steam and games). I updated it to Windows 10 and use MangaBlaze to read manga on it. Is perfect for reading. Mine is almost 2 years old.

An inexpensive tablet like this one will never replace your main computer but you can install the Windows Store versions of Office and open documents and stuff.

If you get one, get one with an SD Card slot.

Now, you might want to wait a few months for the incoming new generation of devices. There is hope for a "Surface Phone" or a phablet able to run Win32 apps on it.
