Best bet would probably be some sort of Remote Desktop App that allows you to play your desktop from your Android device.

That said, there is probably some way you can make a android into a windows phone if you were crazy enough about it.

There is this: https://www.project1999.com/forums/s...ighlight=Droid

Which is referenced by this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zrAr9S--rsk

They say it is slow though - So I really don't think that is the best way to do it. But that is from 2010, Mobile devices have come a far way since though.

I had a guild mate that played on a Surface pro. It can be done but I have no personal experience to share since I avoid mobile/tablet like the plague, its bad enough living with the shame of a Windows 10 tablet OS on desktops.

Best of luck and slay an orc for me.

This might be possible on a Surface Pro, because it's actually a Windows laptop (that just looks like a tablet). But Android laptops don't run Windows; they run Android.

The only way you could possibly run EverQuest on an Android tablet would be if you somehow could get root access, then somehow manage to install WINE through that root access: in theory Android is a UNIX OS, so in theory it could be possible ... but I'm guessing Android lacks all sorts of supporting libraries that would be necessary ...

... which means your only option to "play EQ on Android" is:

... because that way you're still playing on a computer, and just sort of forwarding the screen/controls to your tablet.

I like your article. I'm on an Android phone and I download the apps and games mod apk version at ModCombo. ModCombo is always the first choice that I trust whenever I want to download games and applications mod apk version.
