OpenTyrian Port for Dingux

Tyrian is an awesome game. So I’ve ported the SDL OpenTyrian to Dingux.

The data files for this game are now freeware, they can be found floating about on the web.

Some caveats:

  • The game doesn’t run full screen at this stage. (320×200 instead of 320×240)
  • Sound quality is less than ideal, especially voice samples and explosions.
  • Some degree of slowdown is noticeable when lots of objects are on screen.
  • Seems to be a large performance hit with transparent objects. DONT use “Pentium” quality setting, use “High” at best.

Installation instructions are in README-DINGOO.txt.
