       netPanzer - an online multiplayer tactical warfare game

       netpanzer [options]

       This  program  is  a  free (GPL)	isometric view real-time tactical game
       designed	for play across	the Internet and over LAN systems. One on  one
       games are  possible via direct connect or modem.

       netPanzer  is  designed	for  FAST  ACTION  combat -- it	is not another
       resource	management clone. In fact, there aren't	any resources at  all.
       Each  player will have many units of different types at their disposal.
       Players can fight until their units are destroyed -- then  respawn  and
       keep on going.

       The game	is real-time, but it's based on	quick tactical action and unit
       management. Battles progress quickly  and  constantly;  in  fact,  they
       never  let up. There is no stop in the action because there is no wait-
       ing for resources to be collected and converted into weaponry.  Players
       can join	or leave  multiplayer games at any time.

       The following options are supported.

       -h, --help     Shows usage instructions.

       --version      Shows version information.

       -c, --connect=VALUE

       -d, --dedicated

       -b, --bot=VALUE
		      Connects as bot to specific server.

       -p, --port=VALUE
		      Runs  server on specified	port. (the server uses TCP and
		      UDP connections)

       -g, --debug    Enables debug output.

		      Uses the specified master	server.	You can	use 'none'  if
		      you don't	want to	use master server.

		      Uses  the	specified file as config file. Only files from
		      the netpanzer's config directory can be used.

       --protocol     Shows version of network protocol.

       The original development	of netPanzer was done from PyroSoft inc.   The
       game  is	 currently  developed  by Matthias Braun, Ivo Danihelka, Tyler
       Nielsen,	Vlad Rahkoy and	Ingo Ruhnke.
       This man	page was written  by  Bartosz  Fenski  <>  for  the
       Debian GNU/Linux	distribution (but it may be used by others).
