OpenTyrian Classic ================================================================================ OpenTyrian is an open-source port of the DOS game Tyrian. Tyrian is an arcade-style vertical scrolling shooter. The story is set in 20,031 where you play as Trent Hawkins, a skilled fighter-pilot employed to fight MicroSol and save the galaxy. Tyrian features a story mode, one- and two-player arcade modes, and networked multiplayer. == Additional Necessary Files ================================================== Tyrian 2.1 data files which have been released as freeware: http://camanis.net/tyrian/tyrian21.zip == Keyboard Controls =========================================================== ctrl-backspace -- kill OpenTyrian alt-enter -- fullscreen ctrl-f10 -- ungrab mouse arrow keys -- ship movement space -- fire weapons enter -- toggle rear weapon mode ctrl/alt -- fire left/right sidekick == Network Multiplayer ========================================================= Currently OpenTyrian does not have an arena; as such, networked games must be initiated manually via the command line simultaniously by both players. syntax: opentyrian --net HOSTNAME --net-player-name NAME --net-player-number NUMBER where HOSTNAME is the IP address of your opponent, NUMBER is either 1 or 2 depending on which ship you intend to pilot, and NAME is your alias OpenTyrian uses UDP port 1333 for multiplayer, but in most cases players will not need to open any ports because OpenTyrian makes use of UDP hole punching. == Links ======================================================================= project: http://opentyrian.googlecode.com/ irc: irc://irc.freenode.net/#tyrian forums: http://tyrian2k.proboards.com/index.cgi?board=opentyriangeneral README: AshTR
