    That.

    As a self-imposed challenge, it's very impressive. In the wider world, just .... why?

    Why not!!

    Anybody spotted games on kit that shouldn't be there? I work on laboratory analysis kit, Agilent famously had Tetris built in to the handheld controller on the 1100 GCs.

    While it may not be particularly useful of itself. By working under such extreme constraints, it forces you to consider new solutions which can then be applied in a more practical situation.

    Same reason I installed linux and then doom on an iPod 4g (thats the white monochrome wheel iPod for younger readers ). Utterly pointless but also utterly awesome!

    I love this, its absolute genius.

    Re: Modder demakes Quake to be playable on oscilloscope display

    Was the 1st proper PC game (not DOS) that I bought, on a band new P1 200Mhz with 8bm SDramm. Saved up my pocket money for months to buy a Voodoo 1 4mb to play GL Quake.

    Time to dig out the old beastie I think

    Is there anything left that quake hasn't been modded onto?

    Re: Modder demakes Quake to be playable on oscilloscope display

    To be pedantic: Quake is running on a PC. It's being displayed on a 'scope, but the 'scope is just doing what a 'scope does and plotting two XY input signals.
    You could take the same XY signals and feed them to some galvanometers to make a laser-projected Quake. Or you could take a VGA output, connect the sync line to a basic waveform generator, and connect to a 'scope (turning the scope into a low-res monochrome monitor).
    But it'll still be Quake running on a PC.
    If you want something actually running on the oscilloscope itself, have Doom.
