OpenTyrian

Post by DaVince »

Tyrian - Ported from its original Turbo Pascal code to C and soon to be enhanced with new stuff. It works surprisingly well and is available for several different systems!

Quite awesome, it got me back into playing Tyrian again.

I've played some game that was a bit like this, can't remember its name though. This looks quite nice though.

Ah, yes. I read about this recently when revisiting the Tyrian forums for the first time in a long while. It seems that community has come a long way since I first came across it. Hopefully it evolves into something as polished as OpenTTD.

This is very interesting! I love Tyrian and can't wait to see what they do with it.

Does anyone following this project? I've downloaded the DS version since it was released and didn't catch what's going on with the PC version.

There are two versions: classic, which tries to be as close as possible to the original, and an evolved/advanced version that's apparently going to have and support a whole lot of new stuff.

What news is there? Well, they're now directly delivering Windows and Mac builds from the project page. :p

Well I've tried the enhanced version, but it doesn't work. In the log appears some errors: "Error: Failed to add "data" to search paths.
Error: Failed to add "opentyr-data" to search paths. ERROR: Unable to find Tyrian data file: music.mus" (although the file is there) :confused. Too bad. I guess there isn't stable release yet.

Correct, last time I tried the enhanced version I couldn't shoot stuff... Here's to hoping it turns into something beautiful. :)
