amoeba - Fast-paced, polished OpenGL demonstration by Excess
amoeba is a fast-paced, cross-platform OpenGL demonstration by Excess,
showing effects using your 3D card in perfect sync with Ogg Vorbis
music. It features a full XML-scripted GPLed demo engine, several
object manipulations, lots of graphics and a pumping soundtrack by
Amoeba won first price in the demo competition at Underscore 02, a
sceneparty held in Jönköping, Sweden (http://www.underscore.sh/)
If you start amoeba without any command line options, it will try to
launch a GTK+-based configuration interface, if GTK+ is installed on
your system. If not, it will start using default parameters (640x480,
32bpp, fullscreen with sound).
All options start with a single dash (‘-’). A summary of options are
included below. Note that if conflicting options are specified, the
last one will take precedence.
Run in full screen (default).
Run in a window. Note that resizing the problem may cause
problems, and is not fully supported.
-640x480, -800x600, -1024x768, -1280x960, -1280x1024, -1400x1050,
Run in the specified resolution (if using full-screen mode), or
open a window of the specified size (if using windowed mode).
The default is 640x480.
Run in the specified bit depth. 32bpp looks better and is
usually faster on modern cards, but not all cards can handle
16bpp. Note that 16bpp may cause problems on many cards that do
not support stencil visuals with 16bpp. The default is 32bpp.
-z16, -z24, -z32
Run with a Z-buffer of the specified bit depth. Higher bit
depths usually results in slightly better quality, but many
cards only support 16bpp, and there might be a performance
penalty. The default is 16bpp.
Do not play sound. The default is to play sound, unless no sound
card can be detected.
Amoeba was made by the group Excess. This manual page was made by
Steinar H. Gunderson <email@example.com> (aka Sesse/Excess) for
the Debian GNU/Linux project (but may be used by others).
