       exult - an engine for running Ultima VII


       exult [options]


       Exult is an engine built for running Ultima VII. It started its life as
       a map-browser for Ultima VII and has evolved from there, thanks to  the
       open  source-model and contributions of time and code from many people.

       You cannot use Exult without game data  files.  At  present,  the  only
       finished  games are Origin’s Ultima VII: The Black Gate and Ultima VII,
       Part 2: The Serpent Isle. In any case, both Ultima VII’s  are  some  of
       the  best  computer  Role-Playing-Games  made to date. Check your local
       computer dealer’s bargain bin or an online auction site. Ultima VII can
       still be purchased for only a few dollars. Run out and buy it!

       There  is  a  world  editor  available  to create your own games: Exult
       Studio. Check the exult homepage (URL below) for more information.


       -h, --help
              Show the available command-line options

       -v, --version
              Display (detailed) Exult version information

       -c configfile
              Specify an alternate configuration file to load

       --bg   Skip the main Exult menu and run Black Gate

       --si   Skip the main Exult menu and run Serpent Isle

              Skip the game menu for BG/SI

       --buildmap type
              Create a fullsize map of the current gameworld.  If  type  =  0,
              paint all roofs. If type = 0, skip second-floor roofs. If type =
              2, don’t paint any roofs. You also need to specify --bg or --si.

              Skip  the  CRC check of the .flx datafiles. Only use this if you
              modified them yourself without recompiling exult


       See the README supplied with exult for information on this  (Note:  you
       NEED this configuration file to set up and run the game).
