Description

Pytheas Alpha version 1.0 contains features for the construction and combat of fighter and shuttle class ships.


It's ready! Simply extract and run Pytheas.exe!

Requires graphics card with pixel shader 2.0 support. OpenGL not currently supported.

If you don't already have OpenAL or MSVC++ redistributable I have provided the links below. (You will know you need these if Pytheas fails to locate a DLL)
Required Installs:
OpenAL
MSVC++ 2010 Redistributable

This first alpha contains features for the construction and combat of fighter and shuttle class ships. The OGRE config display will allow you to setup your graphics options until a full in-game options menu has been completed.

For question/problems please head over to the forums.



Later versions will expand functionality

Thanks! I'm going to start putting together some more detailed tutorial material so it won't be a mystery.

If you have downward pointing thrusters, your ship will work more like a VTOL. The VTOL physics aren't complete but it will keep you safe from gravity with enough thrusters.

Hey, I'm having a problem running the game, I downloaded and installed both required files (I had a newer version of MSVC, and I installed the "oalinst" file) but when I try to run the game I still get the OpenAL32.dll was not found. I'm not sure if I just missed a download or if there's another problem, but any help would be appreciated.

Did the oalinst.exe give you any error messages when you ran it? It sounds like your windows registry location may be incorrect or may require a reboot to work. I'm not sure why the installer would fail to set this up properly. You may be able to place the openAL32.dll directly in the Pytheas directory as long as wrap_oal.dll isn't causing the problem.

This is a known issue with some languages' operating systems. I have made some changes that will add a conversion check to ensure keys are encoded properly in the next version.

First, if you have not already tried to run it as administrator, do so. This is a manifest issue which has been addressed in newer, unreleased versions. There is also a newer version available at www.dyvoxstudios.com.

There are some compatibility issues with certain graphics cards (especially intel chips) as well as some windows 8 problems that are hopefully resolved in future releases. If bugs persist, I may be able to track it by posting the log file in the forum bug section.

I apologize for any compatibility problems, I am a one man team but I am working to resolve these types of issues.
