# The Battle for the Solar System : The Pandoran War

This is the port of the "The Battle for the Solar System : The Pandoran War" 
v1.50.1 for the AmigaOS 4. 

The Pandoran War is a 2D mission-based space shooter based on the BATTLE FOR 
THE SOLAR SYSTEM space opera and set between books two and three: THE THIRD 
SIDE and THE ATTTRIBUTE OF THE STRONG. The game features many missions, 
with many different objectives and craft.

It requires a fast system to play the game as fast as possible, and a 
graphics card that supports either opengl/opengles2 with SDL2.
It is tested and runs well on X5000/40 with a RadeonRX 550. 

This archive does not contain any data files. In order to play the game, you 
need to download the data  separately. From the following website download
the "tbftss-1.5.1.linux-x86_64.tar.gz" file.

https://www.battleforthesolarsystem.com/games/pw/#downloads

To install it, extract the data file anywhere at you hard disk
and copy over all the files from this archive. A requester will show up
to replace some files, which you need to confirm for all of them.

### How to make it faster

The game should run in 60fps but on my test system I get around 30fps with all 
the effects enabled. That's why I introduced an option at the Options screen, 
named "Effects Reduction" with values from 0 to 3. With 0 you have full effects
everywhere, and with 3 you have less effects shown. That increases a lot the 
speed, but you might still see slowdowns in situations where there is a lot of 
action on the screen.

It is recommended to open the SDL2 prefs and set the Driver to opengl/opengl2 
depending your gfx card and the drivers you have installed.

On my system "Batching Mode: enabled" leads to some crashes. I recommend you 
to  set this to default. But feel free to experiment with it, in case it
works better for you.

I'd love to hear how it works on your system.
