    As a productive addition to this joke, I should mention that the iDoom has been recently improved. The screen scales properly and they added dithering to the non-color ipods. So it's basically the first playable version.

    No sound yet, but really fun to show your friends. I've impressed several people with my l33t hacking skills. While actually it's a very very simple automated install. No "hacking" at all.

    I'm assuming you scroll to look left-right, press center to fire, what is movement? Does it override the menu/play/pause/etc buttons?

    That's great...any build for a mini yet? I know it would look great on that tiny screen :D

    iDoom on the nano looks amazing...

    My 1993 vintage Quadra 610 plays Doom marginally faster than an iPod...but it can't play MP3 audio. :( :rolleyes:

    The acceptance of the joke of the 15fps in Doom was quite amazing in this thread. Can you hear the bells?

    i've seen Doom on iPods before, hence why it wasn't surprising or particularly of any interest to me. i'm glad? that they've improved it, although it seems like a waste.

    It's totally useless, but that's the fun in it! Someone's had the skill and (worryingly) the desire to do it!

    Nice little cocktail party trick, or you could just pull out a PSP or DS with any one of their nice-looking games instead. :p
