[Back to top] _________________________________________________________________ Command line options The following command line options can be given to Tunnel. --width, -w WIDTH width of screen or window --height, -h HEIGHT height of screen or window --depth, -d DEPTH depth in bits per pixel --gamma, -g GAMMA gamma --fullscreen COND use full screen if COND is true --frequency FREQ audio frequency in Hz --file, -f FILE load extra options from FILE --help, -? print help message and exit --version, -v print the version of Tunnel and exit You can specify long option names with a single -; for example, -help as well as --help. [Back to top] _________________________________________________________________ The options files If the command line options are not enough for you, or you want to tweak the game's feel, you can modify the options files. These files are in the subdirectory data of your installation directory. The file named options contains general options like resolution, gamma, full screen, audio frequency and key bindings. The ball_info file contains information, such as strength and maximum speed, for all balls. The level file contains information on different levels. These files should be easy to edit once you get to them. If you do not want to change these default files, you can create a file anywhere and use the --file FILE command line option. To start, you should copy the file options and modify that. You can remove any fields you like, as the file options is still read before your file. To change the ball_info file, copy it and then modify it. This time, do NOT remove fields you do not change, as only one ball_info file is used. After your changes, modify your options file so that the ball_data field in the game record points to your new file. The level file can be modified in a similar manner.
