SYNOPSIS
       crispy-heretic [OPTIONS]

DESCRIPTION
       Crispy  Heretic	is a port of Raven Software's 1994 game	"Heretic" that

       possible.

       -hhever <version>
	      Select  the Heretic version number that was used to generate the
	      HHE patch	to be loaded.  Patches for each	of the Vanilla Heretic

	      lowing: wand, staff and 50 ammo for the wand. This option	is not
	      allowed when recording a demo,  playing  back  a	demo  or  when
	      starting a network game.

DEMO OPTIONS

       -timedemo <demo>
	      Play  back the demo named	demo.lmp, determining the framerate of
	      the screen.

	      lation.	Supported versions are:	dos622,	dos71, dosbox. The de-
	      fault is to emulate DOS 7.1 (Windows 98).

OBSCURE	AND LESS-USED OPTIONS
       -cdrom [windows	only]  Save  configuration  data  and	savegames   in

       -nogui If  specified,  don't  show a GUI	window for error messages when
	      the game exits with an error.

IWAD SEARCH PATHS
       To play,	an IWAD	file is	needed.	This is	a large	file containing	all of
       the levels, graphics, sound effects, music and other material that make
       up the game. IWAD files are named according to the game;	 the  standard
       names are:

       doom.wad, doom1.wad, doom2.wad, tnt.wad,	plutonia.wad
	      Doom, Doom II, Final Doom

       heretic.wad, heretic1.wad, hexen.wad, strife1.wad
	      Heretic, Hexen and Strife	(commercial Doom engine	games).

       hacx.wad, chex.wad
	      Hacx  and	 Chex Quest - more obscure games based on the Doom en-
	      gine.

       freedm.wad, freedoom1.wad, freedoom2.wad
	      The Freedoom open	content	IWAD files.

       The following directory paths are searched in order to find an IWAD:

       Current working directory
	      Any IWAD files found in the current working  directory  will  be
	      used in preference to IWADs found	in any other directories.

       DOOMWADDIR
	      This environment variable	can be set to contain a	path to	a sin-
	      gle directory in which to	look for IWAD files. This  environment
	      variable is supported by most Doom source	ports.

       DOOMWADPATH
	      This environment variable, if set, can contain a colon-separated
	      list of directories in which to look for IWAD files, or alterna-
	      tively full paths	to specific IWAD files.

       $HOME/.local/share/games/doom
	      Writeable	 directory  in the user's home directory. The path can
	      be overridden using the XDG_DATA_HOME environment	variable  (see
	      the XDG Base Directory Specification).

       /usr/local/share/doom, /usr/local/share/games/doom, /usr/share/doom,
	      /usr/share/games/doom System-wide	locations that can be accessed
	      by all users. The	path /usr/share/games/doom is a	standard  path
	      that  is supported by most Doom source ports. These paths	can be
	      overridden using the XDG_DATA_DIRS environment variable (see the
	      XDG Base Directory Specification).

       The above can be	overridden on a	one-time basis by using	the -iwad com-
       mand line parameter to provide the path to an IWAD file	to  use.  This
       parameter  can also be used to specify the name of a particular IWAD to
       use from	one of the above paths.	For  example,  '-iwad  doom.wad'  will
       search the above	paths for the file doom.wad to use.

ENVIRONMENT
       This  section  describes	 environment  variables	 that  control	Crispy
       Heretic's behavior.

       DOOMWADDIR, DOOMWADPATH
	      See the section, IWAD SEARCH PATHS above.

       PCSOUND_DRIVER
	      When running in PC speaker sound effect mode,  this  environment
	      variable	specifies  a PC	speaker	driver to use for sound	effect
	      playback.	 Valid options are "Linux" for the Linux console  mode
	      driver,  "BSD"  for  the	NetBSD/OpenBSD	PC speaker driver, and
	      "SDL" for	SDL-based emulated PC speaker playback (using the dig-
	      ital output).

       OPL_DRIVER
	      When  using  OPL MIDI playback, this environment variable	speci-
	      fies an OPL backend driver to use.  Valid	options	are "SDL"  for
	      an  SDL-based  software emulated OPL chip, "Linux" for the Linux
	      hardware OPL driver, and "OpenBSD" for the OpenBSD/NetBSD	 hard-
	      ware OPL driver.

	      Generally	 speaking, a real hardware OPL chip sounds better than
	      software emulation; however, modern machines do  not  often  in-
	      clude one. If present, it	may still require extra	work to	set up
	      and elevated security privileges to access.

FILES
       $HOME/.local/share/crispy-doom/heretic.cfg
	      The  main	 configuration	 file	for   Crispy   Heretic.	   See
	      heretic.cfg(5).

       $HOME/.local/share/crispy-doom/crispy-heretic.cfg
	      Extra  configuration  values that	are specific to	Crispy Heretic
	      and not present in Vanilla Heretic. See crispy-heretic.cfg(5).
