       uqm - Ur-Quan Masters


       uqm [options]


       The  Ur-Quan  Masters  is  a  2D inter-galatic adventure game.  You return to Earth with a
       vessel built from technology discovered from an ancient race called the Precursors only to
       find  it enslaved. Gather allies from a wide variety of races, engage in space combat with
       various foes, and save the galaxy from the Ur-Quan!


       Valid command line options:

       -h, --help
              Display a help message.

       -r, --res resolution
              Sets the screen resolution.  Unless --opengl is set,  the  only  valid  values  are
              640x480 and 320x240.

       -f, --fullscreen
              Uses  full  screen  mode.  Pretty straightforward.  Usually good to combine with -r

       -o, --opengl
              Use OpenGL drivers.  This produces higher-quality graphics, and may  be  faster  as
              well -- but it also may not work on older cards.

       -c, --scale=mode
              Graphics  scaling mode (linear, biadapt, biadv, triscan, hq). Default is none.  Try
              these to get smoother graphics with cost on performance.

       -b, --meleezoom=mode
              Melee scaling mode (step, aka pc, or smooth, aka  3do).  Default  is  3do.   Slower
              machine  owners  can  set  it  to  nearest  to  get better performance in melee but
              degraded visual quality.

       -s, --scanlines
              Simulates interlaced displays.

       -p, --fps
              Print fps information in the status window.

       -g, --gamma value
              Sets gamma  correction.  1.0  causes  no  change  (unless  your  graphics  card  is
              originally  set  to  a  different value). Higher than 1.0 makes the image brighter,
              lower than 1.0 makes it darker.

       -C. --configdir directory
              Set the directory where the game will seek its configuration files.

       -n, --contentdir directory
              Set the directory where the game will seek its data.

       -M, --musicvol volume
              Set music volume (0-100).

       -S, --sfxvol volume
              Set sound effects volume (0-100).

       -T, --speechvol volume
              Set speech volume (0-100). If  set  to  0,  game  runs  in  'no  speech'  mode  and
              oscilloscope reacts to the music.

       -q, --audioquality high | medium | low
              Specifies  how  nice  the  audio  sounds.  Slower  machines  should lower the audio

       -u, --nosubtitles
              Disables subtitles.

       -l, --logfile file
              Sends console output to a logfile.

       --addon addon
              Replace addon by the name of an add-on to enable in  the  game.  May  be  specified
              multiple times.

       --sound openal | mixsdl | none
              Specifies  which  driver/mixer to use. Default is mixsdl.  openal is only available
              when it has been  compiled in.   It  may  produce  higher-quality  sound  and  will
              probably  be faster, but it is not very stable on linux platforms, and may not work
              well with some sound cards.  Use "none" as a last resort if you  cannot  get  other
              drivers to work, or if you have no soundcard.

              Enables positional sound effects in melee. Currently works only when using openal.

       --nethostN hostname
              Server to connect to for player N (1=bottom, 2=top)

       --netportN port
              port  to  connect  to/listen  on for player N (1=bottom, 2=top) The default port is

       --netdelay frames
              Number of frames to buffer/delay network input for.

       -m, --music 3do | pc
              Controls use of the 3DO remixed soundtrack for songs that  were  in  fact  remixed.
              3DO is the default.

       -i, --intro 3do | pc
              Controls the intro/ending version. 3DO is the default.

       --cscan pc | 3do
              Use  either  PC  (text) or 3DO (pictograms) style planet information when scanning.
              The default is PC.

       --menu pc | 3do
              Use either PC style (text and 'CREW'/'BATT') or 3DO  (pictograms)  in  melee.   The
              default is PC.

       --font pc | 3do
              Use either PC or 3DO style fonts and colors. The default is PC.

       --shield pc | 3do
              Use  either PC style (static) or 3DO style (throbbing) slave shield. The default is

       --scroll pc | 3do
              Scroll voice-over/subtitles 1 page at a time (PC style)  or  smoothly  (3DO  style)
              when using left/right arrow keys. The default is PC.
