I can as well, using Steam link. I'm assuming this is some sort of streaming.

For non-streaming solution you should be able to run arma on geminiPDA and upcoming Cosmo Communicator, they run gemian (a version of debian), so should be doable with just 'git clone/make' hopefully
edit: actually will probably run again into the GL->GLES issue as years ago on the n900 (on the plus side that was 800mhz device vs 2ghz multicores now so performance should be better), so most likely glshim or similar will be needed, wonder if the 2.8 gles version will still run, or maybe one of the wip android ports can be reused as base, once I get my cosmo will let you know

Not a native solution however.

Yeah, 8 fps, was getting 18-20 on the nokia n900 on the lowest settings however. The arm binary is still out there if you can emulate/chroot debian on your phone:

and source:

You will need the libglshim from there to translate gl to gles. At least won't need to emulate full x86, but will still have overhead. You could probably run the x86 linux binary natively on something like jolla tablet with XWayland (sailfishOS is proper linux, but without X so another hurdle) and bluetooth keyboard.

Cosmo Communicator finally arrived and with beta linux finally able to play arma on phone, ~30fps in a 640x480 window (and probably even lower on something like ctwf), fullscreen sadly out of the question as no hw accel and 2048x1020 resolution, maybe once sailfish arrives if I manage to glshim it for gles/wayland, that would be hw accelerated, fingers crossed
