       xqf - 3D action game server browser


       xqf [options]


       XQF is a 3D action game (such as Quake, sequels and derivatives) server
       browser. It uses X and is written using the GIMP  Tool  Kit,  and  uses
       QStat in the backend to retrieve server info.

       With  XQF you can search for Quake, Quake World, Quake2, Quake3, Return
       to Castle Wolfenstein, Hexen 2, Hexen World, Sin,  Half-Life,  Kingpin,
       Soldier  of Fortun 1/2, Tribes 2, Heretic 2, Unreal, Unreal Tournament,
       Unreal Tournament 2003, Rune, Descent 3 and many others. You  can  look
       at  lots  of  information  about the servers. XQF can spawn your client
       into a selected server with customized  options.  You  can  also  apply
       filters  while  searching  for servers, trimming full or empty servers,
       for example.


        XQF accepts several command line parameters:

       --launch [SERVERTYPE] IP
              adds the server specified with IP (e.g. to  the
              favorites,  queries  it  and  launches  the  game.  XQF tries to
              automatically determine the correct game based on the  port.  If
              the  autodetections  fails  XQF  will  ask  you  for  the  game.
              Alternatively you may directly specify  the  game  type  on  the
              command line (e.g. Q3S).

       --add [SERVERTYPE] IP
              adds  the  specified  server  to  the  favories  and queries it.
              Basically the same as --launch  except  that  the  game  is  not
              launched ;-)

       --debug level
              set  the  specified  debug  level.  Use  this  if you experience
              problems with XQF.  Level 3 is usually sufficient for  debugging
              most problems. Higher levels product lots of output.

              prints the version of XQF.
