Fwd: Bug#856728: opentyrian: When run via menu the game silently exits if data is missing


Could someone please sponsor a new upload of opentyrian that fixes this important usability bug ?
(+ screen get stuck in some tiny resolution like 640x480 or smaller)

I've found back the patches I hoped to get applied upstream
(that didn't happened) and they haven't bit-rotted &
still work as expected.


Last release wasn't properly tagged --> :-(

Package: opentyrian
Version: 2.1.20130907+dfsg-1
Severity: important

Dear Maintainer,

when you run the game via the menu and the data package was not installed yet, it just exits with no warning.
The proper way to handle missing data would be to display a popup with the error message which points user to readme.
Alternatively, the installer script could ask the user if he wants to download and install the data files too. 

Best Regards,
Andrej Mernik
