NAME

       performous - The free music and rhythm game

DESCRIPTION

       Performous  is  a  free  cross-platform  karaoke, band and dancing game, where one or more
       players perform a song and  the  game  scores  their  performances  based  on  timing  and
       accuracy.

       Performous  supports  songs  in  UltraStar,  Frets  on  Fire and StepMania formats.  Also,
       microphones and instruments from SingStar, Guitar Hero and Rock Band as well as some dance
       pads are autodetected.

       If you have trouble with the program (no songs found, audio not working, etc), try running
       it on a terminal. Some useful debug information is printed there.

   Generic options:
       -h [ --help ]
              you are viewing it

       -l [ --log ] arg
              subsystem name or minimum level to log

       -v [ --version ]
              display version number

       --songlist arg
              save a list of songs in the specified folder

   Configuration options:
       --audio arg
              specify an audio device to use

       --audiohelp

       --jstest

              any arguments without a switch are interpreted as song folders.

AUDIO DEVICE CONFIGURATION

       Performous  normally  autodetects  microphones and playback devices correctly, but if this
       fails on your machine, you will need to  configure  them  in  the  Audio  Devices  screen.
       Advanced  configuration  is  possible through the command line, just remember to enter the
       configuration menu and press Ctrl+S to save them to your config file so  that  they  don't
       need to be specified every time the program starts.

       The list of available PortAudio devices is printed to the console, but it can also be seen
       from the GUI.
