NAME

       doomsday - Doomsday Engine - For Doom/Heretic/Hexen

SYNOPSIS

       doomsday [OPTIONS] [GAME] [WADS]

DESCRIPTION

       This manual page documents briefly the doomsday command

       This manual page was written for the Debian(tm)/GNU and Ubuntu(tm) distributions because
       the original program does not have a manual page. Instead, it has documentation in plain
       text format

       doomsday is an enhanced Doom(tm)/Heretic(tm)/Hexen(tm) engine, capable of running Doom 1,
       Doom 2, Evilution, Plutonia, Heretic, Hexen and Hexen: Deathkings. It currently CAN NOT
       run Freedoom, and does not support Boom features.

       doomsday supports high-resolution textures and 3D models. Currently many of these can be
       found at http://eyagi.bpa.nu/~jamie/doomsday.html

       These programs follow the Windows(tm) command line syntax. A summary of options is
       included below. For a complete description, see the text files and
       http://www.doomsdayhq.com.

OPTIONS

       -dedicated
           Run in dedicated server mode. No graphics or sounds will be initialized. The game will
           run in a text mode console.

       -bpp
           Specify the color depth to use. Defaults to desktop color depth. E.g. "-bpp 32"

       -wnd
           Start the game in a window. By default the game runs in fullscreen mode.

       -paltex
           Use paletted textures (if supported by the hardware).

       -playdemo
           After initialization loads the given demo file (which resides in the Demo
           subdirectory), plays it and then quits.

       -timedemo
           After initialization loads the given demo file (which resides in the Demo
           subdirectory), plays it in singletics mode (i.e. as fast as possible), displays frame
           count information and quits.

       -nosound
           Don't initialize sound or music.

       -nomouse
           Don't initialize mouse.

       -texdir
           Loads all high-resolution (PNG,TGA,PCX) textures from the given directory. Defaults to
           "Data\<Game>\Textures".

       -texdir2
           Secondary high-resolution (PNG,TGA,PCX) texture directory. Defaults to "". This
           directory is checked first, so it can be used to override textures in the normal
           texture directory (-texdir).

       -userdir
           Sets the working directory. By default the engine uses the current working directory
           (the one in which it was started). On Debian/GNU and Ubuntu systems doomsday is run in
           a shell wrapper that sets -userdir to $HOME/.deng automatically.

       -verbose
           Be more verbose with console messages.

       -texcomp
           Use texture compression (if supported by the OpenGL driver).

       -deh
           Applies the Dehacked patch. You can give more than one as arguments, e.g. "-deh
           first.deh second.deh".

       -alldehs
           Allows the processing of more than one DEHACKED lump. Otherwise only the DEHACKED lump
           that has been loaded last is processed. Does not affect the -deh option.

GAME

       -game
           Specifies the game to use (required). This must be one of either jdoom, jheretic or
           jhexen eg "-game jdoom"

WADS

       -file
           Specifies the wad file to use (required). You can give more than one WAD file as the
           parameter eg "-file /user/share/games/deng/Data/jDoom/doom2.wad"

EXAMPLES

       "/usr/games/doomsday -anifilter -texcomp -game jdoom -file
       /user/share/games/deng/Data/jDoom/doom2.wad"
