This is Massimo, from somewhere around Venice (about 100km).
I have been around here for quite a while some time ago but didn't register. I lost this off my radar but a few days ago I started needing some old games after months without seriously playing. Since Tyrian was one of my favourite classics and surely the best shooter I know I figured out registering was a Good Thing this time!
I want to thank Jason for its effort in creating this die-hard classic and sustain all the people working on openTyrian. I think everybody will agree with me when I say we're all your fans!
hello everyone! my name is max aka M_NRG(mrg in short) and i was searching for midi's from tyrian cauze i like to produce music and i love the music from tyrian i didnt had luck finding working midi's for fl-studio but then i came on this forum and i saw the music topic and i really loved the remixes so i desided to make rock garden from scratch (im very good with music) and it worked out pretty well i got a own remix(wich i will post in shortly)
further more i played tyrian very much in the past and i really loved it(and i still love it)
Hello! This is Kotake from Chile, I play Tyrian since I was ten or eleven years old. I remember that I played the shareware version and I became fanatic instantly. Then appeared another shareware version of the game D:! WTF! it had more levels than normal shareware version. When Internet became massive I downloaded the 2k version, I think that was 4 years ago. Tyrian has been the game of my life, I play it time to time and it never stops to amaze me. I always discover new levels or tricks and now I joined this forum to know more about this great game
I've played Tyrian as a sprout, and I was hooked; scrolling shooters were my all-time favorite back then. I've run through the usual batch of DOS games (Tyrian, Spersa, Stargunner, BioMenace, et cetera), and loved each and every one of them, still reminiscing on the good days with OSX DOSBox.
I'm undertaking Python studies (with accompanying Psyco and PyGame, naturally), and hope to work my way up from text based adventures to more advanced 2D games. My current objective is to successfully develop and release a FOSS Tyrian.
After I was able to get DOSBox working on my MacBook, I was looking around at various fansites when I discovered Gamera's, so I naturally herded to the forum like a rampaging goat to see if the hubbub was alive. I found that it was, and hope that by registering, I'll be able to add my experience to the consortium keeping Tyrian alive and well, if not just in our memory, but our hard drives as well.
Hey! I'm Drifter! aka Mark. I've played Tyrian for a long time, and I discovered this site today when I was looking to see if Tyrian's weapons actually had different power levels. I got into Tyrian again last year upon the discovery of DosBox (thank God) Now I'm playing Tyrian and considering starting to mod it.

Hi I'm Norman Bates from USA. I played Tyrian on my father's first computer around 11 years ago. Something made me think of it last weekend, and I was curous to see if it was still around. Yep. I found it and started reliving the past playing Tyrian again.
One question though, what is the ship with the orange rectangle in the top left corner mean? Is it a powerup? It looks like there's a key in the rectangle.
dude Tyrian is the best game ever. I want to play it and ive been trying to get it to work on my laptop(it has vista) but i cant seem to get it working. Can someone please help me with a detailed guide on how to get it to work?

Hey all, what's up?
LOVE Tyrian. Favorite game of all time. Nuff said.
Over the years I kept stumbling across this forum. It seemed pretty dead and so I never really joined up.
When I heard about the Open Tyrian thing I got pretty excited but I still didn't sign up. Well now I did and stuff. Hopefully I'll make a mod or something for Tyrian or something. (can we do that now?) If not I'll hang around but I don't see this place as being too terribly active.
