Jumping in and resurrecting this thread because I've just finished porting OpenTyrian Classic to the DS. vespenegas.com/tyrian.html
I did a checkout from SVN (r734) and worked from there. Everything seems to work pretty well, but this is a first release so there are still some bugs, and there's a couple more things I still want to add. Anyway, you're free to take a look if anyone's interested.
I followed the instruction, and it crashed on my DS1... I've copy the tyrian's files in the root (with a tyrian folder), DLDI the nds... and then I get a "Guru Meditation Error ! data abort !" on a red screen... did I missed something ?
Hmmm, interesting. I don't have time to test it now, but I assume it's just a SDL port, right? How well does it run? Also, why is it 28mb big?
I have tried the game and on my EZV goes really good. But I have the same question, why are the songs and the rest of the game so heavy? Shouldn't it use the same game files as the other opentyrian releases? Thanks for this version!!!
