SYNOPSIS

       -scripts	<path>
	      Development option to specify path to level scripts.

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
       Hexen'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/hexen.cfg
	      The main configuration file for Crispy Hexen.  See hexen.cfg(5).

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