       opentyrian - an open-source port	of the DOS game	Tyrian

       opentyrian [OPTIONS]

       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  em-
       ployed to fight MicroSol	and save the galaxy.

       Tyrian  features	 a  story  mode, one- and two-player arcade modes, and
       networked multiplayer.

       A summary of options is included	below.

       -h, --help
	      Display help and exit.

       -s, --no-sound
	      Disable audio.

       -j, --no-joystick
	      Disable joystick/gamepad input.

       -t, --data directory
	      Set alternative Tyrian data directory.

       -n, --net host[:port]
	      Start a networked	game; host is the IP address of	your opponent.
	      Use    this   option   together	with   --net-player-name   and
	      --net-player-number to join game.

	      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.

       --net-player-name name
	      Set name as your alias for multiplayer game.

       --net-player-number number
