Vega Strike - Trade, Fight and Explore the Universe
vegastrike [-ddata_dir] [-px,y,z] [-jsector/starsystem] missionname
The recommended way to run Vega Strike is to first run vsinstall to
configure your system, then invoke the vegastrike executable and begin
a New Game.
vsinstall program sets up the default save game, copies the
vegastrike.config file to a user’s ~/.vegastrike.4.x directory and
runs vssetup from the proper directory.
vslauncher program allows the user to select a mission to run, then
executes vegastrike When a user has selected a save game to use via the
New Game or Load Game buttons. A user may autorecover an autosave file
by clicking on the Recover Auto Save button, and selecting the save
game to recover to, which will launch vegastrike and recover the save
game. Save games must be saved at a base or planet.
vegastrike program begins Vega Strike with the selected XML mission
file (full path necessary) and the save game appearing as the only text
