Currently OpenTyrian does not have an arena; as such, networked games must be initiated manually via the command line simultaniously by both players.
syntax: opentyrian --net HOSTNAME --net-player-name NAME --net-player-number NUMBER
where HOSTNAME is the IP address of your opponent, NUMBER is either 1 or 2 depending on which ship you intend to pilot, and NAME is your alias
OpenTyrian uses UDP port 1333 for multiplayer, but in most cases players will not need to open any ports because OpenTyrian makes use of UDP hole punching.
When I properly do this, tyrian opens and closes instantly. It says simultaniously so we both tried to time it exactly when the minute changed from the time.gov clock and it still did the same thing. I can't get tyrian to stay open when inputting those netplay commands!
Can somebody make a clear guide on how to get Netplay to work with Opentyrian??
