    Holy SHIT! Tyrian was an AMAZING game, with some of the best music for a shooter! Same guy who did Deus Ex (Alexander Brandon) did the music for Tyrian...and man, two-player mode in Tyrian was awesome. I guess I'm dating myself since kids these days have their newfangled grumble grumble...


    but seriously, check out Tyrian! I can't wait to check this port out!

    What I mean is while playing through Camanis the error randomly pops up; loading has been fine.

    Great to see such a quick update, I was super impressed with 0.1, but this looks even better. Again big props to all those involved in putting this all together. Anyone who hasn't played this game, I suggest you stop reading and get it now, as it is one of the better games on the DS.

    just to mention that if you already have previous version, you can just get new versions .nds file and save some bandwidth.

    Seems all my complaints and wishes were addressed with this update.
    I'm a happy camper now, anything after this is just icing on top.

    Hey, where's "Ale"? I played this on OpenTyrian as a bonus-game, but lost it since only the auto-save was working. Would be nice to play it once in a while.

    Awesome! I loved this game on the PC.
    Through DS homebrew I already found out about two open source remakes to PC games I loved:
    OpenTTD and now OpenTyrian [​IMG]

    I would've been happy if the last version was final, such a damn fine port (better with Raydars wav files) but now there's Destruct I'm happier.

    Awesome music too. Epic & Apogee really did show that PC could do great Arcade games in the early 90's.

    whats "Destruct"?

    -----
    btw, does this game suffer a little of slow down and runs 60% of its original framerate or its just my DSTT?
