    OpenTyrian
    ================================================================================
    Original developer: Jason Emery and the OpenTyrian team
    Web site: http://code.google.com/p/opentyrian/
    OpenTyrian is a port of the DOS shoot-em-up Tyrian. Jason Emery generously gave the OpenTyrian developers a copy of the Tyrian 2.1 source code, which has since been ported from Turbo Pascal to C. The port uses SDL, making it easily cross-platform.
    Tyrian is an arcade-style vertical scrolling shooter.  The story is set
    in 20,031 where you play as Trent Hawkins, a skilled fighter-pilot employed
    to fight MicroSol and save the galaxy.
    Tyrian features a story mode, one- and two-player arcade modes, and networked
    multiplayer.

    Note about this AmigaOS4 port : Added a scaler2X

    == Keyboard Controls ===========================================================
    ctrl-backspace -- kill OpenTyrian
    alt-enter      -- fullscreen
    ctrl-f10       -- ungrab mouse
    arrow keys     -- ship movement
    space          -- fire weapons
    enter          -- toggle rear weapon mode
    ctrl/alt       -- fire left/right sidekick
    == Network Multiplayer =========================================================
    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.
