       exult - an engine for running Ultima VII


       exult [options]


       Exult  is an engine built for running Ultima VII. It started its life as a map-browser for
       Ultima VII and has evolved from there, thanks to the open source-model  and  contributions
       of time and code from many people.

       You  cannot  use  Exult  without  game data files. At present, the only finished games are
       Origin's Ultima VII: The Black Gate and Ultima VII, Part 2: The Serpent Isle. In any case,
       both  Ultima  VII's  are  some of the best computer Role-Playing-Games made to date. Check
       your local computer dealer's bargain bin or an online auction site. Ultima VII  can  still
       be purchased for only a few dollars. Run out and buy it!

       There  is a world editor available to create your own games: Exult Studio. Check the exult
       homepage (URL below) for more information.


       -h, --help
              Show the available command-line options

       -v, --version
              Display (detailed) Exult version information

       -c configfile
              Specify an alternate configuration file to load

       --bg   Skip the main Exult menu and run Black Gate

       --si   Skip the main Exult menu and run Serpent Isle

              Skip the game menu for BG/SI

       --buildmap type
              Create a fullsize map of the current gameworld.  If type = 0, paint all  roofs.  If
              type  =  0,  skip  second-floor roofs. If type = 2, don't paint any roofs. You also
              need to specify --bg or --si.

              Skip the CRC check of the .flx datafiles.  Only  use  this  if  you  modified  them
              yourself without recompiling exult


       See  the  README  supplied  with  exult  for  information  on  this  (Note:  you NEED this
       configuration file to set up and run the game).
