NAME

       billard-gl - OpenGL billiards game

SYNOPSIS

       billard-gl [options]

DESCRIPTION

       This manual page documents the billard-gl program. This manual page was written for Debian
       because the original program does not have a manual page.

       billard-gl implements a game of 8- or 9-ball billiards, which you  can  play  against  the
       computer or a friend.  The general idea of billiards is to hit the coloured balls with the
       cue ball in such a way that these balls fall in one of the six pockets of the table.

OPTIONS

       -f  -fullscreen
              switches to fullscreen mode (can currently not be changed  from  inside  billard-gl
              itself)

       -f  -windowed
              switches  to  windowed  mode  (default;  can  currently  not be changed from inside
              billard-gl itself)

       -t VALUE
              texture size for the balls.  Valid values are 1 for full size textures, 2 for  half
              size textures, 4 for quarter size textures, and 8 for eighth size textures.

       -tt VALUE
              texture  size for the table.  Valid values are 1 for full size textures, 2 for half
              size textures, 4 for quarter size textures, 8 for eighth size textures, and  0  for
              no textures.

       -at VALUE
              texture  size for the display.  Valid values are 1 for full size textures and 2 for
              halfsized textures.

       -g VALUE
              ball geometry; odd numbers >= 3.  Higher values create more complex geometry.

       To run billard-gl with minimum settings, try

              billard-gl -t 8 -tt 0 -at 2 -g 3

       or for maximum settings, try

              billard-gl -t 1 -tt 1 -at 1 -g 11

       All of  the  options  are  configurable  from  within  billard-gl  itself,  unless  stated
       otherwise.
