I gave setting up mingw another shot today. Found this which made it possible to run the damn thing in vista64, and then followed the instructions on the 'how to build open tyrian' wiki page with no success. Turns out I had to install the SDL development libraries and not the regular runtime libraries, and extract the archives to the main mingw folder and *not* to lib and bin. Perhaps the wiki page should be updated so more of us windows guys can figure out how to build the game?

as you can see from other post of mine, i've already warned about updating the wiki with build instruction, but at this time nothing happened. i admit i haven't the necessary skills to update it, because i can't get compiled it too.
i suggest (i'm a windows user too) to use PRe.compiled packages you can download in the DOWNLOAD section of the google code page.
