abuse - An SDL port of the Abuse by Crack dot Com.
Abuse is a port of the classic Crack dot Com side-scroller shoot-em-up
Abuse. It uses the Simple DirectMedia Layer API to draw it's graphics
and play sound.
Abuse has the following additional features over the original game:
Stereo sound with panning.
Runs at any colour depth from 8bpp to 32bpp.
Can use a mousewheel for changing weapons.
Scaling to any resolution.
Can use OpenGL for hardware accelerated scaling and anti-aliasing.
Abuse requires the following:
SDL 1.1.6 or above.
Datafiles(graphics, sounds, maps etc.) from either Registered
Abuse, Shareware Abuse, or fRaBs (Free Abuse).
The following command-line options are available:
Run Abuse in fullscreen mode.
Use double-buffering when blitting to the screen. This is
slower but can reduce image tearing or other artifacts. Only
use if you notice any display problems.
-mono Use mono sound like the original Abuse. This is faster.
Disable sound altogether.
Scale the window by <arg> amount.
-gl Enable OpenGL support.
Enable anti-aliasing. (Only with -gl)
Abuse can load it's settings from a configuration file stored in the
users home directory. The file is located at ($HOME/.abuse/abuserc).
If either the directory or the configuration file don't exist they will
be created automatically with default values.
The configuration file contains various settings for adjusting how
Abuse behaves. Except for key settings, most of the options have an
equivalent command-line option. Lines starting with a semi-colon(;) are
ignored as comments.
