        abuse.sdl - An SDL port of the Abuse by Crack dot Com.


        abuse.sdl [options]


        Abuse-SDL  is  a port of the classic Crack dot Com side-scroller shoot-
        em-up Abuse.  It uses the Simple DirectMedia Layer  API  to  draw  it’s
        graphics and play sound.
        Abuse-SDL has the following additional features over the original game:
        Stereo sound with panning.
        Runs at any colour depth from 8bpp to 32bpp.
        Can use a mousewheel for changing weapons.
        Scaling to any resolution.
        Can use OpenGL for hardware accelerated scaling and anti-aliasing.
        Customizable keys.


        Abuse-SDL requires the following:
               SDL 1.1.6 or above.
               Datafiles(graphics, sounds, maps etc.)  from  either  Registered
               Abuse, Shareware Abuse, or fRaBs (Free Abuse).


        The following command-line options are available:
               Run Abuse in fullscreen mode.
               Use  double-buffering  when  blitting  to  the  screen.  This is
               slower but can reduce image tearing or  other  artifacts.   Only
               use if you notice any display problems.
        -mono  Use mono sound like the original Abuse. This is faster.
               Disable sound altogether.
        -scale <arg>
               Scale the window by <arg> amount.
        -gl    Enable OpenGL support.
               Enable anti-aliasing. (Only with -gl)


        Abuse-SDL  can  load  it’s settings from a configuration file stored in
        the   users    home    directory.    The    file    is    located    at
        ($HOME/.abuse/abuserc).   If  either the directory or the configuration
        file don’t exist they will be created automatically with  default  val‐
        The  configuration  file  contains  various  settings for adjusting how
        Abuse-SDL behaves.  Except for key settings, most of the  options  have
        an  equivalent command-line option. Lines starting with a semi-colon(;)
        are ignored as comments.
