        SearchAndRescue - Air rescue flight simulator


        SearchAndRescue [options] [GUI_options]


        Helicopter based search and rescue flight simulator, pilot a variety of
        user editable rescue aircraft through customizeable missions and rescue
        victims in distress.  Uses OpenGL and glX for graphics, Ylib for sound,
        and libjsw for joystick support (not available on all platforms).


        --config <file>
               Load configuration from <file>.
               Same as --config.
        -f     Same as --config.
        --control <type>
               Specify which controller to use at start up.  <type> can be key‐
               board or joystick.
        -c     Same as --control.
               Use direct hardware rendering (default).
               Use software rendering instead of direct hardware rendering.
               Always  perform  full  (not  partial)  menu  redraws  (slow  but
               required for certain accelerated video cards).
        --display <address>
               Specifies display address (UNIX/X version only).
        --font <name>
               Specifies the default font to use on GUI related outputs. Reffer
               to your GUI manual for the proper font name formats.
        --geometry <WxH+X+Y>
               Specifies the geometry of the toplevel window, example "--geome‐
               try 640x480+100+120" to make the window 640  by  480  pixels  in
               size  and  at  coordinate position 100,120 (relative to the root
               Specifies to switch to full screen on startup, use this  if  and
               only  if  your  GUI  does  not  support manual switching to full
               screen. You may need to specify the --geometry argument to spec‐
               ify the size of the full screen resolution.
        --aspect_offset <coeff>
               Specifies  a  floating coefficient value to be applied to screen
               aspect calculations, example a value of -0.2 when your screen is
               800  by  600 then the aspect would be 800/600 + (-0.2) = 1.333 -
               0.2 = 1.133.
        --recorder <address>
               Specifies recorder address (UNIX/Y version only).
               Do not connect to sound server at startup (overrides  the  value
               set in the configuration).
               No  menu  background images (speeds up the redrawing when in the
               Do not print routine messages to stdout.
               Print debugging runtime detection of various resources  to  std‐
               out.  This  may  help  detect  points of failure or crash during
               startup or exiting.
               Print debugging  of  internal  runtime  information  (messy  and
               terse)  to  stdout.  This  will only print debugging information
               about internal resources belonging to the program.
        --help Prints (this) help screen and exits.
               Prints version information and exits.
