Ah Tyrian, I remember playing the hell of the shareware version back in the day, even more so when I got my hands on the registered version. Besides the main mode, I liked how when you went though the arcade mode, you kept get a new cheat code for a different type of ship. Playing as the foodship was amusing
Never did get a chance to play Tyrian 2000 though.

Yeah, OpenTyrian's progressing really well. Oddly enough, none of the OpenTyrian developers knew someone had ported it to the PSP though, nor were they given credit, though that might've been a mistake.
As for the article, I only see two things that are slightly wrong: 1: Don't mispell DOSBox 2: I don't know why, but each time I read the article, I feel like it's telling me that Tyrian 2000 can play the included CD audio, which it can't.
Minor grammar complaint: "Furthermore, he weapon pickups"
It's hold down fire, right, down, left, release fire, up + fire. That one in particular is tricky to pull off. You need to do it very quickly, and it's hard to do consistently. Every ship has a different set of them, and many of them are easier to do consistently.
On that note, the "secret" Captured U-Fighter in arcade mode has a weird bug/feature where if you go back and then ram into a boss, it'll get destroyed in one hit! I've never seen it referenced anywhere, and it is a little tricky to pull off without practice. I'm leaning towards feature though since it's still in Tyrian 2000.
