Type these after the ROTT command for special uses:
? - Gives you a list of all the command line parameters.
NOSOUND - This option turns off all sounds (both music and
sound effects) for the game, and makes it silent.
NOJOYS - This turns off joystick detection. Useful if you
are getting false joystick detection. Use this if
the menus just start scrolling on their own, with
no input from you.
NOMOUSE - This turns off mouse detection.
SPACEBALL - This turns on detection for the Space Player
CYBERMAN - This turns on detection for the Cyberman controller.
SILLY - When you play ROTT, during the loading screen, the
level name is displayed. If you use this parameter,
the level name will be replaced with a silly saying.
FILE - This is the name of a user added wad file for ROTT.
You wouldn't actually type FILE, you'd type in the
name of the file to be used by ROTT. You can add
three such files at once using this method.
SOUNDSETUP - Makes ROTT go through setting up your sound card.
VER - Shows the version of ROTT you are playing.
SLOWDEATH - When you die in ROTT, this will let you see your
death in slow motion, as opposed to the normal speed
it's shown at.
NOWAIT - This will bypass all opening cinematics and screens,
and will place you at the Main Menu.
NOW - This will bypass all menus and screens, and will
automatically place you into the game in Level 1,
as the default character, and the default difficulty.
PAUSE - This will bring up a "Press any key to continue"
prompt when you first run the game. This is useful
if you need to contact Apogee for help, and they need
to ask you a few questions about ROTT and your
MASTER - This will force a specific client in Comm-Bat ROTT
to be Player 1 (or the Master). Only the first use
of this in a game will be honored. Any uses beyond
the first will be ignored. If this is not used, the
first person to launch into a NetROTT game will be
the Master. (This parameter can cause instability
in Comm-Bat ROTT. We recommend against it's use.)
MONO - This turns on support for the Monochrome region of
video. If you have your system set up with a video
card that can access this at the same time you play
the game, you will see debug information about the
game (such as memory writes, etc). The information
here is useless, but if you can see it, here it is!
MAPSTATS - This will output the map statistics (ie: Number of
different walls, doors, etc.) of the current level
to the file MAPINFO.TXT.
TILESTATS - This will output the tile statistics (ie: Number of
different actors, plants, objects, etc) of the
current level to the file MAPINFO.TXT.
SCREENSHOTS - Clean screen capture for shots
SOUNDSETUP - Setup sound for ROTT
DOPEFISH - Wait for credits at beginning
