I've been following this with some interest since the first alpha release. Version 0.3 has now reached a stable and very playable stage and It's fun to play on the GP2X. Changing the exit key B to Y is most welcome because even with v0.2 I was still pressing B which gave me the impression that that version wasn't working. The readme has finally arrived along with the Tyrian data files so many more people are going to be able to experience this game.

I have a few things to report which you may be interested in addressing :-
  • When full-screen mode is active, navigating within the OpenTyrian screen results in some extreme flicker. This flicker disappears as soon as I turn off full-screen.
  • The key repeat within the main menu system is very slow and it appears not to time-out when releasing the controls so that pressing up or down repeatedly is also slow. The key repeat within all of the help sections remains unimplemented.
  • Both the supplied gpe start-up scripts execute /mnt/sd/gmenu2x/gmenu2x on exit, even though you were intending opentyrian2x.gpe not to. Actually as far as I know there is no need to execute gmenu2x directly because that is what autorun is for. The usual cd /usr/gp2x && exec ./gp2xmenu will execute gmenu2x if autorun is enabled. Additionally even if the user is using gmenu2x, there is no guarantee it will be in /mnt/sd/gmenu2x. I would be interested to know why you are executing gmenu2x directly.
Like many games, this comes to life on a handheld.

 Thunor's bullets are right. I've had some issues with the saves not working after a certain slot number. You can also end up with level 0 of a rear weapon (maybe front, too), where it shoots bananas in forward mode and proton in side/back mode. You can usually do it by choosing a weapon and going back up and choosing a weapon again instead of immediately exiting. I just beat Tyrian full mode using this release a couple of days back, so I can confirm that this is fully playable, beginning to end. Good job to everybody involved!
 I just encountered OpenTyrian for the PC today and thought I recognized the title as being available on the GP2X, how happy I am to have it on the go! I personally would have gone with A,B,X,Y rather than AB,X,L,R, but thats me. Also, the Joystick configuration screen says X, but it seems to actually be mapped to Y... at least for me.
 Thanks a lot to Slaanesh & OpenTyrian ! It's so nice to play Tyrian on my little handheld ;)
